I just spent a week in Nicaragua and stayed at Green Surf. It was terrific!!! and much more than I expected. Green Surf is a great property, located right on the beach, open air , comfortable hammocks everywhere, with clean, nicely decorated, air-conditioned rooms. Also, the food is delicious and the water very pure. The pool its with beautiful tiles is filled daily with this clean, cool water. Everyone at Green Surf will make sure you have an amazing experience.
This was a mother/daughter trip and since I can't make use of the exceptional surf, Dave arranged some very special experiences for us. Leon, an old Colonial town with many beautiful churches and The Centro de Arte, which houses an exceptional collection of many of the worlds greatest artists. We also visited and rode horses thru a sugar can farm which was surrounded by volcanoes and breathtaking scenery. Then we went to a volcanic hot springs and stocked up on precious volcanic mud. We headed North into the mountains and our next destination was a private, organic, coffee farm. This was awesome.. not only did we learn all about coffee growing and harvesting but about Nicaraguan history. This area has seen a great deal of resistance to foreign involvement in Nicaragua. The coffee farm is surrounded by cloud forest and the mountains and jungles are inhabited by lions and many other endangered species. We hiked to gorgeous waterfalls and the biggest tree I have ever seen with a natural spring coming out of it. A"fountain of life". This was a special adventure and a very special time with my daughter. Dave and his friends made it all possible-giving us an insiders view of Nicaragua. I highly recommend the Green Surf experience. Green Surf is wonderful and gives off a special energy-go there for a unique and memorable trip.
