Our cabanas are located exactly in Playa Maderas, within a 5 min walk to the beach. Playa Maderas is a very small and magical place with only a couple of other businesses in the area, but that's what makes it so special. Healthy and delicious breakfast are included with your vacation, and also a welcome and good bye dinner. For the rest of the days, you can find right at the beach "Café Revolution", with great ambient and cool people to be around. Don't forget to ask for a banana- peanut butter smoothie to fill up your day. Another must do at the beach is "Tacos Locos", where you can have a cold "Toña" while enjoying the sunset, one of the best ceviches around and also delicious fish tacos.If you feel that you need more "civilization", you can get a shuttle to San Juan del Sur, only 10 kilometers away from us. Also we can settle up for you transportation to go practically anywhere you'd like to. I'll be there to be your personal host, so you don't have to worry about anything.
Normally the easiest way is to get to Managua airport, where I will arrange a taxi to pick you up. There's numerous flights via Miami that fly to Managua. We can pick you up also at the bus station if you prefer, or directly at San Juan del Sur.Let me know how you'll plan to get to Nicaragua and I can arrange everything's necessary.
