"We just returned from wonderful two night stay at Casa Olas. It's the perfect place to kick back and relax, whether reading a book in a hammock, taking a refreshing dip in the very "cool" pool, or taking a short stroll to the beach. Loved the private and tranquil setting. The whole vibe at Finca Del Mar and Los Cordones Ecolodge is what we founding so alluring. Loved it so much that we decided to buy a lot and build our own piece of paradise!
Janelle, thank you for the ride and making us feel so welcomed.
P.S. Be sure to take advantage of the $20 one hour massage at the ecolodge. It was heavenly:)"

"My wife and 6 kids decided to do something completely off the grid for once. It was my daughters last Thanksgiving while still a college student so this was the year. We researched CR, Mexico and the Virgin Islands. Never really thought of Nica until our travel agent went there to investigate a resort. I thought that would be interesting...Nicaragua. Well I did my research and putting a surf beach, fairly close to Managua and a surf shop nearby we found Mar y Estrella. We all loved being off the internet, w/o cell service and socializing within ourselves, and of course surfing as a family. The beach was like Newport, Corona or Huntington Beach in So Cal must of looked like 100 years ago. Nobody there with perfect waves all day long. The caretakers and cook were wonderful and hard not to befriend immediately. Day trips fishing and volcano exploring at Mombacho and neighboring Granada were nice to break up the serenity of sitting on the beach or taking a siesta in the hammock. Louise was easy to work with and has given me countless tid bits of extra info and tips.
1. Driving anywhere will take you twice as long as you think.
2. "Some" spanish is not enough. Someone needs a minimal conversational spanish to get anything except for Granada
3. A four wheel drive is recommended, any rain and dirt roads become like wet rubber cement
4. You learn to share the road with ox drawn carts, loose chickens, goats and pigs
Sunsets were unbelievably beautiful, Dinner at Hotel El Casino in Caseres is worth the small drive (ask for Patrice, the owner) and Nica people are wonderfully friendly and we were treated very well"

"Five women spent 4 wonderful days in San Juan del Sur and found this beautiful villa to be the perfect place for us. We had access to the quiet beach town with all the restaurants and activities within walking distance. The security provided restful nights. We were welcomed by Keith and his staff, meals were wonderful and if we had not been touring other cities in Nicaragua we would have loved to stay all 11 days here. Enjoy....you won't be disappointed!"
