Mombacho lodge had first rate food, excellent service and a charming atmosphere. Tucked in the jungle on the bottom of Mombacho Volcano, the lodge is a must stay place in Nicaragua. I stayed in three different areas in Nicaragua and this was by far the coolest one. The location is great for for a hikers with an abundance of trails. There is also easy access (via trails or car) to the coffee plantation atop the Mombacho Volcano. Another neat thing about the lodge: howler monkeys. They are all around the area and you bump into them throughout the day.
Cynthia (the owner) is an excellent host with superb multitasking and cooking skills. She also has a very enjoyable personality so chatting with her at the restaurant/bar is easy. Her dog Ally is even super friendly too!
Another extremely important part of the Mombacho Lodge stay is the weather. I swear it is the one place where in the dead of a Nicaraguan summer, it isn't blazing hot all the time!
Also, Mombacho Lodge does serve as a relatively easy jumping off point for other areas of Nicaragua. Cynthia has a driver who will take you almost anywhere in the country. He is reliable and generally costs less than renting a car. I would suggest staying at Mombacho Lodge and hiring her driver to take you to other areas like San Juan Del Sur, Granada or Laguna De Apoyo.
