Enjoy a week or an extended stay in this beautiful home on the Pacific Coast of Southern Nicaragua. Casa la Selva is ideal for surfers and beach-goers that want to be right at the beach, steps from the sand & incredible surf, but that also want to experience the natural beauty and lush, unique jungle flora & fauna that this area has to offer. Located in the secure, gated community of Hacienda Iguana, 50 steps away from the sand & surf, this beautiful private home has all the amenities of a resort-style vacation, without the crowds. And with some of the best quality surf in Nicaragua and Central America.
The Main House has 2 master ensuite bedrooms with an additional 1/2 bath off the great room. The Casita is a deluxe studio with all the modern conveniences and charm of the main house. Each house is FULLY loaded with amenities, equipped with granite / stainless kitchens, expansive showers with natural stone, artisan furniture, luxury bedding, wireless internet, SatelliteTV, iPhone/iPod/CD stereos, dishwashers, fully automatic standby generator and a beautiful multi-level infinity pool surrounded by lush jungle habitat. There are covered patios with beautiful custom nicaraguan hardwood furniture, a large covered lanai adjacent to the pool, and lanais with rocking chairs overlooking the jungle & garden areas as well.
Rented together, the property sleeps 6. Rented separately, the Main House sleeps 4, or the Casita sleeps 2. Each bedroom can be set-up with 1 King or 2 Xtra-Long Twin beds for use as a couple or a share (super comfy mattresses!).
From Casa la Selva you are 50 steps to the sand of Playa Iguana and surf spots like Colorados and Panga Drops, offering some of the best surf in Central America. The house is designed for luxury and surfing, with secure outside surf closets, and is located approximately half-way between two world-class surf breaks, Colorados and Panga Drops, with several other peaks inbetween. Casa la Selva hosted the 2012 ISA Hawaiian Surf Team (including Sunny Garcia, Rochelle Ballard, & Mike Latronic) who won first place at the event held at our famous beach break, Colorados. See their testimonials below.
No matter what kind of board you ride, there are several different types and sizes of waves waiting for you at Casa la Selva. And we can arrange surf tours (by boat or auto) to some of the other surf spots nearby that Southern Nicaragua has to offer. We can also set up a surf photographer for your session (or for any activity).
Playa Iguana, including Colorados & Panga Drops surf breaks, is one of the country's finest surfing locations. Colorados is a hollow, tubing beach break with many peaks, while Panga Drops is a mellower A-framing rock reef & sand break. And there are several other peaks/breaks along our ½ mile stretch of beach.
GOLF AND MORE!
Located within Hacienda Iguana, the golf course is the only coastal golf course in Nicaragua. This 9 hole course is less than 1/2 mile from Casa la Selva and is virtually yours as you play with no crowds whatsoever and with its perfectly manicured year round conditions. The course really is a lot of fun, with a beautiful, tropical environment and some amazing views. Our renters also have full access to Iguana's Beach Club located near the Colorados surf break a couple hundred yards down the beach from Casa la Selva; it contains a swimming pool, relaxation area, restaurant & bar, BBQ, palapas, and volleyball court.
In the community of Hacienda Iguana there is Don Eloy's restaurant & bar that serves some basic foods, including sandwiches, salads, wings and pizza. And there are a handful of other local restaurants out the front gate in the nearby towns, including a beautiful restaurant on the ocean within Rancho Santana (reservations required).

A 'must visit.'

We had a great time! My husband and I stayed in the Casita for 10 nights and when arrived James had 2 bikes waiting for us; the best mode of transportation within Hacienda Iguana. The locals were super friendly. Cook for yourselves or have it catered through James...that's the best way to go! The restaurants within the community left us unsatisfied and wishing we cooked "at home". We especially loved the fisherman who showed up almost everyday on his motorcycle with a cooler full of fish, lobster and shrimp. For a short adventure outside the gate go to Pili and Mon's Kitchen. Fantastic food and totally unexpected. Two cool Spanish chicks cooking their butts off!
We came to Nicaragua to escape the busyness of everyday life and if you are looking for sunshine, beaches, relaxation and good surf this is the place to visit! We will definitely be back soon. Thank you James and we'll see you again real soon!
We are two couples from the San Francisco Bay area who have been dear friends and long-time travel companions. We decided to purchase property in this beautiful area and build a vacation home together.
Captivated by its wild beauty, charming people, and consistent high quality surf, we fell in love with the Pacific Tola Riviera on our first visit in 2008.
