An ideal spot to relax and enjoy beautiful sunsets on your own beach, with a big shaded area(5 acres) of coconut trees and many fruit trees, away from other touristy locations. Walking distance to Reserva Natural Padre Ramos where Pacific ocean meets a gorgeous lagoon. You can explore the reserve on your own or with local guides, or you can rent a dugout canoe. Walking distance in the other direction to quaint fishing village and small restaurants. Excellent surfing, swimming and fishing right behind house or enjoy a good book in a hammock under the trees. Close to Cosiguina volcano for hiking. The volcano is one of Central America's tallest volcano. It takes about three hours o climb for spectacular views over Honduras an El Salvador. It will be a unique experience of a lifetime.

Why Cheryl Lamkin chose Nicaragua

We went on vacation here one year and enjoyed the moonlight walks and quiet beaches and beautiful sunsets and wanted to spend winters here to get out of the cold.

What makes this cabin unique

The pacific ocean is wonderful for swimming. The walking and finding fresh fish from the local fishermen is always fun. Plenty of North Americans to visit if you desire.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Cheryl's place and we loved it! The house is great, well equipped and cozy. What you see in the pics is what you'll get! Cheryl was always available to answer all of our (multiple!) concerns. Special mention goes to the caretakers, Azrael and Ester (and the young toddler, Derek) who were absolutely wonderful. If you're looking for good surfing waves, KMs of empty beaches, nature and great local people, this is the place you'd like to visit. If you want to hit a Starbucks everyday, then, you should go to Costa Rica :)

Thanks Cheryl for giving us the opportunity to spend an amazing week at your dream house!

Rainy Season

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the property for two months during the rainy season of September and October. The rainstorms were short bursts which occurred mostly at night. Our small children ages 4 and 6 loved playing at the beach about 100 yards from the front door. The palm grove outside the house was also a nice shaded area. Mosquitos were a problem for our young children. We used repellent and bug nets during the night. This property classifies as adventure tourism. Expect power outages, an hour drive to a commercial area (Chinadega), and interaction with mother nature. The inconveniences were well worth the pleasant memories created for our family. We speak Spanish and enjoyed the many experiences of swimming, bogie boarding, canoeing, fishing, turtle preservation, Spanish study, and local friendships. We were able to do most of our food shopping locally. It took some effort to find out which house/truck sells what and when. I recommend the "water truck." It would fill our 5 gallon bottle for 10 Cordobas. We drank this water for two months without any illness. This home appeared to be one of the nicest rental/hotel along the Peninsula. We were cozy and dry during all weather with the benefits of a nice kitchen. It was situated on high ground closer to Padre Ramos. Other similar properties, closer to Jiquilillo, were flooded ankle deep with rain water. Many of the hostels closed for a few weeks to pump out flood water. We enjoyed the comforts of our 4x4 truck to make day trips. We also used the chicken bus on occasion. This area of the world is unique. We love the community and plan to return.

Want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My Girl friend and I stayed here for 7 days in February 2014. It has been 2 months since we returned home, and I wish I was still in Jiquilillo. I read all the other reviews on this rental, and they are all spot on. The location, the grounds, the facilities are all top notch. We wanted to rent a house on the beach away from major tourist activity, buy local seafood, cook most of our meals, buy cold beer, and learn to surf. This turned out to be the perfect place. I could write a lot of praise for Tropicalia (the name of this property) I will keep it short. We checked out a few other places in the area, they were nice, but when I return it will be to Tropicalia. Nicaragua is getting discovered. If you like adventure see it now before it gets over developed. If you are lucky the owner will be at Tropicalia. He is great guy, and very helpful. I have recommended this rental to all my traveling friends since we returned home.

P.S. Rugero please come visit us here in Idaho !

Getting away from it all

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week in this basic rustic home and enjoyed ourselves very much. The beach is one of the best we visited while in the country for 3 weeks, we love taking long walks on the beach and this beach seems to go on forever. The waves are ideal for body surfing and mild enough to take a long swim. The fisherman bring in their catch and sell a fried fish meal for about $2 right there on the beach. It doesn't get any fresher than that! There are several hostels in the area that provide basic healthy meals also very inexpensive. During the heat of the day the front yard, which is a coconut grove, provides plenty of shade to take your siesta in a hammock. This is a very safe area, the house is very secure and there is a couple living on the property who are very helpful and can answer most of your questions. I highly recommend staying here if you are wanting to get off the beaten path, stay in an authentic Nicaraguan village and enjoy the art of relaxing.

Authentic Experience

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for an authentic Nicaraguan experience, go now before the rest of the world discovers this beautiful part of the country. The beaches are endless and you can walk forever and not meet another soul.

The property here is spotless, with the numerous coconut trees providing shade during the

heat of the day. The house is very rustic with basic amenities. There are local buses but to really enjoy the countryside a vehicle is recommended. If you're looking for a five star resort, this isn't the place for you. But, if you're looking for a place where there are no malls or high-rises and as far as you can see there is only the blue of the sky and the sea, this is it! The food is simple and inexpensive, the people are friendly, and the host, if he's around, is a wealth of information. This area is still an undiscovered gem.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time there and experienced what we experience when we go down for our time on the beach. It is total relaxation and fun on the beach.

Beach Bungalo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for six weeks and used it as a base for other travels in Nicaragua. The house was perfect for two adults, although you could definitely put a couple more folks in there. We swam and body-boarded daily, walked the beach, did a kayak and a local boat tour on the estuary, ate fresh fish and relaxed in the hammocks. The property is beautiful and well maintained with lots of fruit trees and bird life. If you are looking for a quiet, out of the way spot to kick back and relax this is the place for it.

We would take the local bus into town weekly to pick up supplies we couldn't at the beach or we would take off for a couple of days to see other areas of the country.

Loved it!

Car: not necessary

A tour through the Padre Ramos estuary is a must for scenic viewing of wildlife and mangroves. A hike up the volcano and a ride down on a 'snowboard' is an exhilarating experience. Ride the surf on surfboards. Kayaking or horseback riding also. Relaxing in your hammock after a fun filled day.
