We spent a few days being pampered at the Hacienda Puerta del Cielo during the "green season". Nicaragua is a fascinating country, but it does not seem to be established among Americans the way its southern sister, Costa Rica, is. The Hacienda is located outside the town of Masatepe in the vicinity of the Masaya volcano and town. The location is rustic at the end of a dirt road. But once you arrive, the place is very welcoming. The casitas are private and very practical. They are spotless and generous in size. There is air-conditioning to combat the humidity and heat, but there are also some wonderful breezes that "take the edge" off the tropical humidity. The service at the resort is fantastic. Although it would have been enough to loll in the pool and read in the privacy of a wonderful resort, it was made even more lovely by the outstanding care that was lavished on us. Food was fresh and interesting and beautifully prepared. The variety was great and we got a chance to sample new fruits and vegetables indigenous to the area. One of us is a vegetarian and the other a meat lover and both got excellent cuisine. There are walking trails in the rainforest, and there are some nearby attractions that make this a tempting destination. It would also be easy to combine this hotel with a trip to Granada that is less than an hour away. Finally the pool is extremely comfortable and sited so that it has a great view of the mountains and lake. You can even see smoke emerge from the volcano from your comfortable poolside perch.
