"We were a big crew, who came for surfing.. we totally enjoyed every minute of our stay, and the apartment and features was sublime!! We choose the in-house meal service which was ok and is good value, but could variate more.. We went beginning of season and scored big!! we surfed 22 sessions in 9 days.. whats to complain about :-D. We would love to come back!"

"I've been staying in this casita for 7yrs. Always clean, great location, and absolutely worry free. Great room set up, and perfect for kids. Some of the houses in Rancho can be a bit challenging for young ones with the elevation, and cliffs. Don't forget to tip the maid."

"My boyfriend and I stayed in the Casa La Selva house for 7 days, just the 2 of us and it was beyond AMAZING! I'd definitely recommend the property if you have 2 or 4 people or a big group and split yourselves between the house and casita. It was a perfect size! Because there were only 2 of us, we couldn't do the food plan, so our Nicaragua 365 driver stopped at the large grocery store on the way from the airport. It was very convenient and we got tons of food and were able to make our own breakfasts and dinners. The pool and the property itself are awesome, very crisp and clean, and I can't boast enough about the LOCATION! The house is just steps away from the beach and my boyfriend is a big surfer, so he was in Heaven (being less than a 5 min walk from Playa Colorados and Panga Drops). The beach is one of the prettiest I've ever seen and so pristine! There's not much shade, so bring a hat :)! The ocean water temperature was absolutely perfect and the STARS at night- oh my goodness! My only issue the entire week was the lack of restaurants/things to do in close proximity. I'm an adventurer and have a hard time relaxing for 7 days straight, so I found myself a little stir crazy at times. We hung out at the beach club almost every evening to watch the sunset and drink the KILLER pina coladas. Best I've ever had! Pili's kitchen also has amazing food! One day we hiked along the beach over to Playa Gigante for lunch, another day we drove over to Rancho Santana for a nice Valentines dinner, and one day we went zip-lining in San Juan Del Sur. I HIGHLY recommend visiting San Juan Del Sur for a day for some liveliness and going on the short 15 min drive to Rancho Santana. Think Santa Barbara in Nicaragua. It's a beyond BEAUTIFUL beach and setting. Make your way to the beach club for a meal! The menu is overpriced for Nicaragua, but very nice, delicious food and a little more upscale. We didn't rent a car, but I'd recommend it if you're more of an adventurer (like us). Lots of cool things to do and see within driving distance of Casa La Selva. I have so many great things to say about David and the team. They were super professional and always very on top of things... if internet went out, we needed something random, really anything they were always right there! They were very friendly, always stopped by to say hello and had exceptional customer service. Thanks to the team there for making everything so relaxing and enjoyable. We will definitely be back!"

"This was our first visit to Nicaragua but we had an awesome time at Hacienda Iguana. The quick access to Playa Colorado and the view of Los Perros were great! They've put together a great little guide booklet with hiking info, surfing rental info, and restaurant info . We had a little trouble with some of the hiking near the ajoining Rancho Santana regions as a security guard turned us around. We went back later. We loved our time here and the surf was the best I've ever seen. The property was as described and we'd recommend staying here."
