    I came here to improve my Spanish, and it was a perfect three weeks for me. The location near the lake is beautiful and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Pablo is a very experienced local guide and he gave us great opportunities to practise spanish and learn about the local area. I had a great teacher and an...

    Thank you for writing about us. We offer simple accomodations, good food and coffee, and a real experience on the environment in Nicaragua. We invite folks to come to take with us or write us via email.

    Pablo was a fantastic guide - knowledgable and truly passionate about birds. We saw nearly 50 species in a 2.5 hr walk on dirt roads and forest paths. The walk was followed by a hearty breakfast and swim.

    Pablo has co-authored a few scientific publications on birds. We welcome all nature lovers to come and view the birds (and monkeys-there are a lot of them, these days) with us. We have special plans for birdwatchers to stay overnight and make excursions at dawn. Please contact us for details.

    Thank you for visiting and sharing with us. We are now providing backpacker Spanish classes at very accessible prices, and we have the least expensive accomodations in Laguna de Apoyo. As you mentioned, there are professional scientists on staff conducting birdwatching excursions. Come and see some great birds with us!

    I just concluded my fourth period of Spanish study here. I was also present un December 2010, when a disgruntled former employee violently attacked and injured the director during a Gaia workshop. I submitted a report on the incident and I received a satisfactory resolution. During 2012, I spent a week with my young son who loved the water and...
