Venture into our vast 4,000 acre property in search of the abundant wildlife and to witness impressive preservation initiatives such as our reforestation projects and sustainable tree farm. On this tour we’ll visit the property’s sustainable “tree plantation,” where we plant and harvest trees for commercial use to lessen the strain on Nicaragua’s valuable forests (hyperlink to “Conservation efforts”). We also visit the organic farm, with its lively chickens and gentle holstein cows, and on to the horse stables.
Take a short hike to the premier vantage point for which to view the stunning sunset as it disappears beyond the Pacific. This easy and enjoyable walking tour begins at our private beach and leads to a relaxed, romantic setting upon a hill overlooking the ocean. A perfect, breathtaking conclusion to any day here at the hacienda.
Our most requested tour! Collect eggs from the chicken coup, milk the cows, and pound corn to make fresh, homemade tortillas. The hard yet enjoyable work culminates in a family style Nicaraguan breakfast down at our farm house. Breakfast is a hearty affair of gallo pinto (Nicaraguan rice and beans), eggs, milk, hot coffee and freshly pressed juice and of course those delicious handmade corn tortillas that you’ve now learned how to prepare. What better way to start your day than with a fulfilling, organic breakfast which you’ve helped to create from scratch. Truly a “farm to table” experience!
Enjoy an unfogettable day on the water with this exciting tour! Reel in red snapper, with its distinc pink hue, perhaps to be had for dinner later. A tour for both the novice and experienced fisherman alike, guests will troll for fish such as mackerel, jack and tuna with our skilled local guides. Take a (mid-day) break for a rejuvinating snorkel expedition on the captivating little island of La Anciana, and taste some of the freshest ceviche you’ve ever had.
Let our horses Pirata, Lucero, Chavalo, and Rosillo lead you through the tropical dry forest around the hacienda. As you trot through virgin forest you’ll spot local inhabitants such as playful monkeys, lazy sloths and exotic tropical birds in their natural habitat. On this guided trek you’ll emerge out of the forest unto a coastal hill that offers the ultimate overhead view of the entire property and beyond to San Juan del Sur. End the tour with a brilliant ride on the hacienda’s secluded beach. Gallop across a mile long stretch of white sand, splashing through the surf for an unforgettable finale to a very special day. Our horses are well cared for, loving creatures. They enjoy frequent treks through the vast property and plenty of natural space to roam and relax – much like their riders!
