Ometepe and Finca del Sol are amazing. Sheri and Christiano have built a quiet piece of heaven and are the greatest hosts. From the eco-friendly cabins, to the amazing views and great location, this is was a wonderful experience. The fireflies and storms that lit up the night made it perfect!

We stayed 3 nights at the Finca Del Sol with our two kids (ages 6 and 7). This is an absolutely lovely bed & breakfast with charming bungalows in a gorgeous, rustic setting. This was the favorite part of our two week trip in Nicaragua. Sheri and Cristiano are the perfect hosts.

After three and a bit months travelling in Central America I can safely say that Finca del Sol was one of the most magical places that my girlfriend and I stayed in.

We stayed at Finca del Sol in July 2013 for a total of 3 nights. Booking was easy: we had e-mail contact and no deposit was required.
