The North of Nicaragua, with its pleasant climate, varied ecosystems and very hospitable people is a great place to go out and explore!
Over the years, our hotel has worked with many farmer families to motivate and assist them to diversify their farms including an ecological tourism component in their management.
The most interesting options we present you here but new Sites might be added any time. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see a map with the locations.
Hot water springs
The hot water springs “Don Alfonso” is a MUST to visit when you are in Jalapa. Most tourists and nicaraguans alike consider it the best aguas termales available in Nicaragua!
The site is owned and managed by the Cooperative for Tourism Development in the North of Nicaragua, COODETUR Las Segovias R.L.
The ecological farm San Antonio is a real paradise on earth, very close to the town of Jalapa, with a real SMELL AND TASTE OF COFFEE!
The San Antonio farm is located just 2.5 kilometers from our hotel El Pantano where you can admire a variety of multicolored butterflies, birds, tropical flowers and native orchids carefully managed and cared for by its owner Manuel Díaz Obando.
Ecological Forest farm
This farm is the first official Forest Farm in Nicaragua which started over 20 years ago when its owner decided to abandon growing maize and beans and to produce a Forest instead. If you are interested to learn more about the management of Pine forest, this is agreat place to visit. You can take one of the walking routes established. The farm also has a small wood-processing plant where they process there own wood.
The ecological farm Sonzapote is located North of the community El Limon, on the road to the Nubarrones mountain. The farm has an abundant water supply which motivated its owner Jose Zeledon, locally known as Don “Chepe” to convert his farm in a kind of rural recreation center.
In addition to take a swim in the different pools you can also take a walk over the farm to see their coffee plantations, natural forests and rich flora and fauna.
This is considered the best place to take a swim in the clean swimming pools and take some time to walk around the farm. They have pine forests (plantations and natural), fruit orchards and even a small hot water spring (not for bathing!). Its owner Fidel Gonzalez takes great pleasure to show you around if he has time!
