Reviewed 2 March 2017

Great tranquil spot with awesome views and sounds of nature. Loved that it's an ecolodge. The staff are very friendly and just attentive enough. It's best to brush up on your Spanish skills ahead of time. Enjoyed the hikes immensely and the farm fresh food that was served.

I spent a week at this lovely eco hotel on a yoga retreat. The lodging is rustic but beautifully done. Vivian is an amazing hostess. The food was delicious. I really enjoyed the marked trails for hiking. The trails are safe and full of wildlife. We saw many birds, including Toucans, 2 and 3 foot sloths, and heard the howler...

The last several kilometers of winding dirt road in the Matagalpa forest breaks into the most breathtaking view that is Finca Esperanza. I only stayed here one night with my family but wish we had had more time to stay longer. Attention to detail is the best way to describe the finca whether it is the friendly, highly trained staff,...

This was the highlight of our 3 week tour of Nicaragua. The Finca is perfect in every way. It is a paradise for humming birds and flowers. We were unfortunate enough to have bad weather... such a pity... heavy clouds and rain but even the weather didn't spoil our stay. The owner Vivienne was so welcoming and friendly. The cabins...

This was my second time at FEV, and it was as wonderful as the first. Comfortable cabins, delicious food, helpful staff, and amazing views. I would love to go back again, I think I will try to time my next visit with the coffee harvest.

FEV has outstanding view, great food and attentive staff. The guided hikes were great. I saw plants and animals I would not see otherwise. Fresh food from the garden was a real treat.. My cabin proch had great rocking chairs to look over the valley. A wonderful way to start and end my day.

Reviewed 7 February 2017

This place is simply wonderful! The staff are gracious, friendly and knowledgeable. Using a guide is very worthwhile as he will identify much that would be missed by an untrained eye. The food is delicious, the views and environment are beautiful and the quiet, ah the quiet, is beyond description. No sounds of traffic, airplanes, electrical hums, electronic music. Perfect.

The trails are well-maintained and interesting, the food is tasty and the property is very well-maintained. The view from the deck and dining room is spectacular. The staff was super friendly and helpful. They were especially patient with our lack of Spanish expertise. We enjoyed having the opportunity to practice Spanish.

I went to Finca Esperanza Verde with a friend, to relax after a few days of hiking volcanoes. The place is beautiful (the views) and the huts cosy.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finca Esperanza Verde is a unique experience in ecotourism and local empowerment - part organic coffee farm - part tourist lodge. The finca sits prominently on the edge of a quiet country road at 4000 ft (1200 mts) above sea level, providing spectacular views of the Dariense mountain range and the green valley of Matagalpa far below. The farm provides local Nicaraguans with profitable and sustainable ways to share their culture with visiting tourists and has received international recognition as a model of poverty alleviation through sustainable tourism and other socially responsible programs. We have three treehouse style double cabins with private bath. Two large dorm-style cabins with two baths in each. We can accommodate a maximum of 20 guests at a time. Three large hot water showers in separate building close to main lodge. A spacious open-air pavilion for lounging, yoga, and large group gatherings. Free WiFi service in main dining room only. ... more   less
