We stayed two nights (wish it had been longer) and enjoyed every minute at Finca del Sol (we stayed in Luna). Sheri and Christiano have created a wonderful retreat that provides every guest the opportunity to experience and enjoy the natural beauty of Ometepe. They welcomed us and went above and beyond to ensure our comfort. We loved the 'green'... More

Delightful. That would be the short version if I were a short-winded person. For those of you looking for a little more details and validation to others' comments, I'll give you a glimpse at the things I loved MOST about Finca del Sol, but really, I just loved everything :) I love... 1- ...the story of the farm: that it...

Upon entering the gates of Finca del Sol we were greeted by the bleating of a flock of sheep, followed by Cristiano (one of the two owners of this small eco-lodge) bounding down the walk, emanating the endless energy that is what helped to create this beautiful haven to welcome us into their fold for the next four days.

We spent 4 nights at Finca del Sol and loved it! The cabins are beautiful and very private, so you can really relax. Sheri and Christiano were very helpful arranging kayaking and hiking guides as well as other suggestions, and have a real sense of the community in which they have chosen to live. We had rented our own vehicle,... More

We loved having our own private cabin that was both tastefully appointed and Eco friendly with composting toilets. The hosts were wonderful, even driving us up the road to our next hotel as we could only book 2 nights with them. One recommendation is book well in advance!

We spent 3 nights at Finca del Sol and had a really nice time. I recommend it to anyone who likes to stay off the beaten path. Everything was above my expectations and there are restaurants and bars in walking distance. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. Overall a really nice stay on Ometepe.

My stay at Finca Del Sol was lovely. The owners are helpful and very laid back. The cabana I stayed in was clean and beautiful. I especially enjoyed the layout of the property which had each cabana a ways from each other creating a peaceful, quiet feel. I have found in my travels that this kind of space is unusual.... More
