You do definitely need a coat or a sweater in the Northern areas of Nicaragua. I just visited Selva Negra in August 2016 and I wore a sweater and jeans. It's not terribly cold but it can get chilly, especially since it rains quite a lot. Most areas of Nicaragua are really hot and you don't need anything except for a t-shirt and shorts, but in the mountains it's useful to bring something a bit warmer.

"Don’t choose any rooms"
"Overlooking the lake or set apart in the forest edge"
"The 'cheaper' 60 dollar room has geese in front, that keep you awake all night. The 100 dollar cabana, is fine but just overpriced."
"Ask for a room away from the events space, in case there are any parties going on!"
"view the lake from your room"
