You cannot help but relax at the Eco Lodge! I travelled here with my two girls aged15 and 12 who loved surfing and hanging out in the hammocks with their newly made travel mates, watching the iguanas and dodging the hermit crabs at night! I was apprehensive of how I would sleep with all the creatures scuttling around and no electricity to power any kind of air con. Once I got the hang of rattling the toilet door to ensure the lizards scuttled away and got my head round the creeping around on the hut roof was probably the hermit crabs, I slept deeply, lulled by the sound of the Pacific Ocean. The food was lovely. The highlight of our stay was the visit to Los cardones elementary school. My girls showed the local children now to make loom band bracelets and we found the visit very rewarding. It certainly made them realise how much they have and yet how happy the local children were. We stayed two days here before do continuing travelling around Nicaragua and would have loved to stay longer.
