We had the pleasure of staying at Via Verde for two nights in early June 2013. We had a friend visiting from the States for her first time in Nicaragua and we strove to show her the best of what this beautiful country has to offer. A trip to Ometepe was a definite stop on the itinerary.
After much research, we decided to book Via Verde. The reviews here certainly helped us make this decision. From the first contact to Eileen via e-mail to arrange our reservations, we knew we were in good hands.
We couldn't have imagined a better visit, even after the high expectations of reading the reviews. Eileen and Darrin have created a winning formula, and after almost 3 years of running Via Verde, they seem to give it the kind of attention and passion one would expect for a new business trying to make their mark. It is evident that they love what they do.
I will not repeat what all others have already said about location, helpfulness with activities, attention to detail, the awesome food, etc., because it has already been said (or written) and it is true!! What I will add is my absolute delight that Eileen and Darrin accomplish all of this while making a concerted and more than admirable effort to minimize the human impact on the environment and the land they so love and are lucky enough to be a part of.......
They have gone to great lengths to learn how to use the reproducing resources of the land and general sustainability of themselves and their guests - without compromise to comfort. Bravo!! We learned so much from you about what's possible and you have inspired us to do a better job of this during our daily lives.
We will most certainly be back to Ometepe, Via Verde, and Darrin's and Eileen's beautiful home. Thank you for sharing it with us and others. We look forward to seeing you again soon and many more times in the future.
