This was my first trip to Nicaragua, and I didn't know what to expect. Soma, were we spent the first 1/2 of our trip, was from the beginning perfect. It could stand up to small resorts anywhere, but what made Soma extra special was the fact that it was build entirely with local Nica ingredients and is staffed with locals. Soma arranged for us to take surf lessons, take a boxing lesson, visit local tidal pools and hot springs, go fishing, and most amazingly, take a horseback ride to visit a local village. While I caution that you should be comfortable being a horse for approximately 2 hours, this is an opportunity not to be missed!
The rooms, three casitas and two rooms, were simple and luxurious at the same time. The beds were amazing and what can beat a walk in shower? Bring your own toiletries as only soap is provided. There are also no hair dryers or irons, but given the beach and how casual Nicaragua is, you won't need them. There is A/C but we preferred the local breeze.
Views are amazing, of the hills and the Pacific. There is a small infinity pool and plenty of places to lounge. The resident pets are very friendly. Meals are taken outdoors, and the food is fresh and local. Especially recommend the fish tacos and literally the best mojito in the world.
There is no doubt that Casey and Bill, the owners, will make any visit fantastic. I highly recommend Soma and hope to return!
