Casa Selva is a beautiful apartment - clean, spacious and modern and is equipped with everything you need to kick off your rainforest adventure. Hangout with the howler monkeys by the pool or at the outdoor dining table, grill some local fish or chicken outside on the deck, or use it as your base to discover the beautiful beaches of South Western Nicaragua. The morning and evening views from the terrace, overlooking the rainforest and...

The house is absolutely beautiful, elegantly decorated and well supplied (since we love to cook). If you are on a romantic vacation then you'll love the bedrooms with the hanging mosquito nets (which we didn't need for mosquitos). The most beautiful secluded beaches are only...
