My husband and I ended our 5 6 day adventure in Nica at Mike's place and are so happy we did! It was a perfect ending, coming off an amazing stay in SJDS 4 nights prior to coming to Managua. Upon arrival, we were promptly greeted by Samantha and offered water or fresh juice. Such a refreshing way to start... More

My brother and i booked our last night in Nica here, he found the place on Airbnb, which is not exactly my kind of thing. BUT, i was pleasantly surprised with la finca. First of all, we were able to book the day before, which was great, and of course the price was fantastic. The views are amazing and they... More

Mike was a fantastic host. He met us at the airport, took us on a thrilling ride through town to the B&B and even offered us a beer to welcome us to Managua. In the morning Juana had prepared a delicious breakfast. The remainder of our trip was to be in Pochomil, so the next morning, he took us to... More

Mike's El Porton Verde is a great launching pad for your Nica adventure. Mike picked our family up from the airport and gave us our first day's tour of Masaya and San Juan del Oriente. After that we felt comfortable moving around using expressos. Each day we would come home from our amazing adventures to find a cool pool and... More

Although my stay was less than 12 hours it was far more pleasurable than being cooped up at the Holiday Inn in Managua. Mike told me up front that there wasn't much around and he could feed me dinner (for a very reasonable price), so I took him up on it. It probably should have been 2 meals, but it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hello and thanks for your inquiry about El Porton Verde, Managua. Room offerings include: deluxe pool front apartment, quad bunk bed rooms, and en-suite rooms with private bath. As an alternative to the big chain hotels in hot and dirty downtown Managua, we offer a very comfortable and quiet bed and breakfast ambiance that lovers of quality lodgings with an eco-tourism aspect are finding very attractive. As we say here at the farm, "We are located in Managua, but being here feels like a world away..." We are located approximately 25 minutes drive from the airport and provide transportation to and from MGA airport. However, we are a small farm in the hills at 1,000 feet of elevation with tremendous views towards Masaya Volcano and the local mountains, so the ambiance is anything but what you will find in the city center. We are perfect for that first night and last night accomodations, especially since we offer airport transportation and local tours. If you want a restful night in a cooler and quieter environment than in the "real Managua" then think about booking with us. ... more   less
