About this listing
Truly off-the-beaten track Nica experience you won't find in guidebooks. Stay in your own bungalow in the Nicaraguan countryside with an ocean view and access to one of Nicaragua's best waterfalls.
*If this private room is booked, feel free to stay in our dormitory (usually stays empty), Nicaragua Farmstay Finca Joco Mico, located near the private room.
The casita (bungalow) is clean and basic. It has electricity, one double bed and one single bed, tile floors, a table, and chairs. Fresh air flows through the room. Outside is a covered ramada with hammocks overlooking the countryside and ocean. You have access to a secluded waterfall and the local community. You can relax or be active in our humble Nicaraguan village. Do as much or as little as you like!

Welcome to our finca! Around these parts, we love ecofarming, yoga, ukulele, beach trips, and of course receiving guests. Lifelong learning - only when we're not farming, is what we love and we hope to share a part of the life here with you. A little help from youtube university and books certainly help due to our remote location.
Once an airbnb guest and Zen buddhist practicioner was wearing a wristband with the message, "Live Joyfully". We couldn't agree more.
