Hotel Casa San Francisco- Granada, Nicaragua
This is a beautiful boutique hotel in a perfect location in Granada. It includes free breakfast and had a fantastic shower. The owner is a really cool lady named Terry Leary and she is an avid world traveller and documentarian. If you have the opportunity to talk with her then you should take it.
Hotel Monte Verde - San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua
Monte Verde is a great campsite right outside of San Juan Del Sur. Owned by Yong Lyles, Monte Verde is a primarily expat bar/guesthouse and poolside hangout. The internet is good, the showers are hot and Yong is endlessly accomodating, offering both a water and power hookup. There are howler monkeys in the trees and two sweet dogs, Whitey and Gringo, swimming in the pool. What more do you want?
