I highly recommend staying at Rancho Chilamate. We originally booked to go horseback riding and decided to stay for a couple of nights. The best thing we could have done. The rooms, the pool, the food, horseback riding, the whole setting -- spectacular! Everything is included in the price - food, all drinks including alcohol and tax. Really like that. The staff, especially the owner, Blue, are super friendly and the dinner was amazing -- the food and the atmosphere. The rooms are super cool with the whole western theme down to the shower head. We went for a sunset horseback ride ... pretty amazing experience!! The horses are healthy, equipment in very good condition and the guides, Alex and Phil, were very knowledgeable and attentive. We rented the jeep for an afternoon and went to two local beaches. We will definitely go back. Our stay at Rancho Chilamate was definitely a high light of our time in Nicaragua.
