This is the ABSOLUTE FIRST ADVENTURE you should plan for your Nicaraguan trip!!!
We spent 4 nights, with our 11yr old daughter at Sablos lodge, in an authentic bamboo treehouse(with a full bathroom). We slept under bugnets and LOVED EVERY minute of our time there. We had many fantastic experiences in Nica, but Sabalos Lodge was definitely the highlight of our 19 day holiday. Definitely worth the effort to get there! If you're traveling with kids spend the extra money and fly from Managua to San Carlos and from there Sabalos lodge will take over...(if they know you're coming)!
The staff and food are are amazing and you will be very well cared for! From the lodge you can take great day trips....Yaro (the lodge owner) knows where you're going and when you'll be back while you're under his care and there isn't a detail he hasn't thought of.
Yaro's stories are a bonus when he has time to sit for a minute.
Note: we didn't use bug spray once on our 19day trip but take it along, then you won't need it!
