What to get away from the daily rushing around for a while - then come here! Sheri and Christiano are great hosts. Happy to help organise trips, taxis and provide general info about the island. I agree with all the other 5* reviews...if you're looking for a relaxing place to stay, this is it - remote feeling but well connected...

Staying at Finca del Sol was a great experience. The cabins are like having your own little home with tons of privacy and a great view of Volcan Conception! For being a more "rustic" and off-the-grid style of accommodation we were pleased to find out that there was hot water and even a TV with tons of movies!! Keep in...

We've been in Nicaragua for 3 weeks and this was the best place we stayed at. Cabanas are spacious and homey. Showers offer warm water and the compost toilets are very easy to handle and do not smell. Sheri and Christiano are super friendly and very welcoming people. Very chatty and approachable. They aim to make your stay on Ometepe...

We stayed 2 nights at Finca del Sol in the yellow cabin (el sol). Sheri and Cristiano are a lovely, friendly couple who really make you feel at home.

Ever wonder what it would be like to live near an active volcano? Finca del sol is the perfect place to experience it.
