About
Description
Experience the "barefoot luxury" of our collection of jungle guesthouses on the slopes of the Maderas volcano, in the friendly town of Balgüe on Isla de Ometepe, Nicaragua! Named for the Spanish "selva" More (jungle) and "vista" (view), our unique site is 100% solar-powered and is both a peaceful tropical forest and an organic permaculture farm. We offer farm tours, cold beverage selection, recommendations of local transport/activity providers, and friendly advice for making the most of your experience on the magical island of twin volcanoes.
