Casa Castillo is situated overlooking the lagoon with views of Mombacho volcano in the distance, the view is stunning and must-see! I could sit all day listening to the birds, book in hand in front of the pool. The house and property have everything you could ever need, with three large beautiful bedrooms, two bathrooms, air conditioning, wifi, etc. and is decorated with beautiful local Nicaraguan art. It's hard not to unwind and relax while here.
Day trips are easy from the house, the resorts on the lagoon are only a 2 min taxi drive and costs about $6 USD for both ways, the swimming was fun and refreshing the water is clear and leaves your skin feeling amazing! We day tripped to Granada, which was 45 min away, Masaya Volcano, about 20 minutes away and San Juan del Sur about 2 hours away. Arianna, the property manager for Casa Castillo, was wonderful and helped to arrange everything we needed at the house, called us taxis, gave recommendations. She was only a WhatsApp text away and helped with anything we needed including last minute recommendations and transportation for hiking the Mombacho Cloud Forest on a whim.
We were well taken care of by the Nicaragua for You team and would recommend Casa Castillo for anyone looking to visit Nicaragua for either an adventurous or relaxing vacation, we really enjoyed the best of both worlds while staying at Casa Castillo.
