The ride up and down the mountain in the ATV was an amazing experience and the zipline was expertly guided with spectacular views, howler monkeys, sloths and cold beer at the main station.
The guides were very entertaining and created a safe environment and showed us some of the incredible wildlife in the area including howler monkeys and sloths.

The attentive crew especially Amanda are all ready to ensure you have the best day on the water, from great drinks to amazing snacks you will return home happy!
We were treated to some of the best ceviche imaginable as well as other dips, crackers and snacks and given the opportunity to play in the deeper water around the boat, snorkel or swim through warm and calm waters...

Edwin helped us organize a customized small-group (12 of us) excursion that included both a boat trip on Lake Nicaragua and a horse-drawn carriage ride through the city of Granada.
Granada and of course Masaya Volcano were highlights as well as a wonderful boat excursion among the islands on lake Nicaragua.

We had a lot of fun during our horseback riding trip with our guide Frances and then we were able to relax in the hammock of our porch.
The trail takes you up to a lookout on the lower parts of Volcan Maderas, with incredible views up to the volcano and down to the lake.

We were a group of 10, all beginners and they choose the best beach for best waves for our level, picked us up at our Villa to save us the ride to the shop...excellent service.
Emmanuel did an excellent job preparing us for the surf (shuffle to avoid stingrays) and it was great to practice my spanish with him.

Playa Hermosa

San Juan del Sur
#18 of 95 Outdoor Activities in Rivas Department
The Playa Hermosa Ecolodge has everything you could want for a day at the beach, hammocks and loungers, bar and restaurant, showers, horses, and the beautiful Pacific with a view south all the way to Costa Rica.
We stayed through a remarkable sunset and I still wish we could have stayed longer as they started a bonfire and the sunset twilight shone beautifully until after 6:30pm (Will add spectacular photos later!)

Equipment was in good shape and had a lot of fun looking around and chatting with Marvin (there are 2 Marvins).
The machine was in great shape, and had enough power to manage the hilly landscape with no problem.

He offered the best price in town (by far) and he took us to Playa Hermosa, a beach further out with much fewer people compared to Playa Madeira, where all the tourists go.
