Mike was on the ball, meeting us at the airport, helping us shop on the way to his 'oasis' at El Porton Verde. We stayed in the apartment just outside the swimming pool, with a grand view of the verdant hills and volcanic region. Restful, indeed, and Mike took us on a fine tour of Managua, and bid us good...

I have to say that this was a great start to our stay in Nicaragua. We have been to the country several times before, but our flight is always the super late one, and frankly Managua is a bit scary. Mike came to pick us up at the airport at 1:30 am. We of course were the VERY last people... More

Greetings turtletam: Thank you for your review of the Farmstay! I am glad that you enjoyed the "soft landing" service that we provide at El Porton Verde. While the early a.m. arrival at the Managua ariport for the Spirit Air flight is not my favorite time to go and pick guests up, the personal touch is very important to the... More

My husband and I ended our 5 6 day adventure in Nica at Mike's place and are so happy we did! It was a perfect ending, coming off an amazing stay in SJDS 4 nights prior to coming to Managua. Upon arrival, we were promptly greeted by Samantha and offered water or fresh juice. Such a refreshing way to start... More

Greetings Hayley and thank you for your kind review!

My brother and i booked our last night in Nica here, he found the place on Airbnb, which is not exactly my kind of thing. BUT, i was pleasantly surprised with la finca. First of all, we were able to book the day before, which was great, and of course the price was fantastic. The views are amazing and they... More

Mike was a fantastic host. He met us at the airport, took us on a thrilling ride through town to the B&B and even offered us a beer to welcome us to Managua. In the morning Juana had prepared a delicious breakfast. The remainder of our trip was to be in Pochomil, so the next morning, he took us to... More

Mike, the US American owner starts out and continues to treat his guests like favored friends. He met us at the airport without a hassle and then kindly took us to a supermarket to put in some supplies into the apartment of his that we are renting. He didn't just drop us off, but went in with us to help... More

Mike's El Porton Verde is a great launching pad for your Nica adventure. Mike picked our family up from the airport and gave us our first day's tour of Masaya and San Juan del Oriente. After that we felt comfortable moving around using expressos. Each day we would come home from our amazing adventures to find a cool pool and... More

Well, my stay with you was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite the "adventures" I had including torrential rains and double lightning strikes which I don´t blame you for (honest). Joking apart, thank you for the personal attention during my stay and congratulations on a great place. Loved the walk through the plantation with my daughter seeing the wildlife.... More

Although my stay was less than 12 hours it was far more pleasurable than being cooped up at the Holiday Inn in Managua. Mike told me up front that there wasn't much around and he could feed me dinner (for a very reasonable price), so I took him up on it. It probably should have been 2 meals, but it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hello and thanks for your inquiry about Farmstay El Porton Verde. Room offerings include: deluxe pool front apartment, quad bunk bed rooms, and en-suite rooms with private bath. As an alternative to the big chain hotels in hot and dirty downtown Managua, we offer a very comfortable and quiet bed and breakfast ambiance that lovers of quality lodgings with an eco-tourism aspect are finding very attractive. As we say here at the farm, "We are located in Managua, but being here feels like a world away..." We are located approximately 25 minutes drive from the airport and provide transportation to and from MGA airport. However, we are a small farm in the hills at 1,000 feet of elevation with tremendous views towards Masaya Volcano and the local mountains, so the ambiance is anything but what you will find in the city center. ... more   less
