The views and cozy feeling you get from the lodge at Totoco are unlike any I have ever experienced in my travels. The difficulty in getting to the lodge, in my humble opinion, only adds to the charm of this hidden gym. The owner, Martijn, was nothing but helpful and constantly available for advice and anything else we needed. I arranged transport from Managua to Rivas through Totoco and, as is common in developing countries, things did not go quite as smoothly as possible. But the owner of Totoco was constantly calling the hotel in Managua that we were waiting at to make sure we knew he was doing everything in his power to resolve the situation. And once the taxi driver did show up, he could not have been more out going and was a true pleasure to share the hour or so ride with. My girlfriend and eye had an amazing experience and hope to return in the future. The only remotely bad thing I had to say was there was quite a few ants in our room, but seeing as though you are in the middle of the rain forest this was not a big deal and the mosquito nets kept all critters out. Would highly highly recommend.
