Other Activities

These are a few other activities you can do while staying at the lodge, including…

Turtle Watching

Located 18 km south of San Juan del Sur, La Flor Wildlife Refuge is a spectacular deserted pacific beach where the Paslama (Olive Ridley) and Tora (Leatherback) turtles arrive by the thousands to lay their eggs. Between July and January each year you can witness this unique event and we can arrange a nocturnal turtle tour for you. Various factors influence the presence of turtles, so please check with us upon arrival.

Canopy Tour and Rappeling

There are two sites near San Juan Del Sur offering a fun morning or afternoon of ziplining through the jungle treetops. You can combine that with rappeling, to double the adrenaline kick, by descending through the trees suspended from a wire. To ensure availability, ask us about reserving ahead of time.


We can arrange a relaxing and fun afternoon sailing on a catamaran along the pacific coast of Nicaragua, anchoring at a beautiful secluded beach where you can swim and snorkel. The trip includes drinks and snacks, and if you’re lucky you could see dolphins, turtles and whales, and maybe catch some fresh fish. Nothing beats watching the sunset with a cocktail in your hand and the wind in your hair!

FISHING Fishing by boat along the coast. Half day/full day (prices on request). Please inform us about the desired level of fishing (recreational/experienced). Weather, currents and other factors can effect the feasibility of fishing trips. It is advisable to reserve the boat ahead of time.

Horseback Riding

Gallop or trot along our beautiful Playa Maderas, with a local guide who will pick you up at the lodge and take you for a ride across the sand and the trails behind. Rancho Chilamate, situated 20 minutes south of San Juan del Sur, also offers guided horseback riding tours. It’s a half-day-tour including lunch. They will provide boots, a hat and even jeans if you forgot to bring them!

Frisbee Golf

The first frisbee golf course in Nicaragua is only a 10-15min walk from our place! It costs approx. 2 USD per day to play as many rounds as you like. No experience required.


Dunia, who lives at the bottom of the hill, is an excellent masseuse. Feel free to walk down and arrange appointments with her directly.
