We are 2 couples who spent 3 amazing days at Finca del Sol in November. I just wished we had more time to just relax, enjoy the nature and do nothing...
The cabins are perfectly located, with great views. Sheryl and Cristiano are very friendly and helpful.
We highly recommend Finca del Sol!

Finca del Sol is an eco-farm, with electricity from solar panels, fruit grown on site, and composting toilets which, contrary to our fear, emit no smell. Sheri and Cristiano work hard to assure their guests a comfortable stay. Breakfast includes fresh-baked bread. A number of places where you can get a good dinner are a short walk down the road. The location is excellent: quiet and with a spectacular view, yet central to Ometepe Island attractions. The owners will call to arrange volcano climbing, kayaking, or touring around the island. Arrange with them beforehand to send a taxi to meet your ferry.

Sheri and Cristiano have a stunning spot on Ometepe. We stayed in Sol which was fine and closest to the street (handy if it's muddy).

The cabinas are kitted out with all you need and cleaned superbly daily. We didn't get hot water (available until 4 I think) but we really didn't miss it as it was pretty hot and sticky when we were there.

Breakfasts were amazing and Sheri organised a great guide to take us up Maderas (a bit of a killer!). There are also eating options within walking distance.

Would absolutely recommend.

My partner and I stayed two nights at Finca del Sol while visiting Ometepe in August. Sheri helped us arrange for transportation to and from the ferry, and our driver met us even though we missed the ferry we intended to be on! Sheri was waiting for us that night to welcome us. The breakfasts were really delicious and served in an idyllic outdoor setting. Sheri arranged a tour of Maderas which was magical, directed us to delicious restaurants, and otherwise made us feel very welcome. Sheri and Christiano took excellent care of us through and through. The cabins were cozy, private, and beautiful. We awoke to gorgeous views of the volcanoes in very comfy beds. Both of us treasure our memories of Ometepe and Finca del Sol. I can't recommend it enough!

My husband and I stayed at Finca del Sol for 4 nights in October. Sheri and Christiano are wonderful hosts and extremely helpful. Highly recommend choosing the breakfast option, they were delicious and different every morning. Their property is huge, the cabins are very private and beautifully presented with a lot of handmade touches. Really recommend this place if you want a unique experience of Ometepe Island. But just a disclaimer...for those people who are scared of creepy crawlies, it may take a night to get used to all the insects on the farm!

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!
