Mike and Miranda were superb hosts and great company, the best we’ve stayed with on AirBnb (so good we stayed with them on our last nights). The farm is just south of Managua, out of the heat of the city and overlooks the Volcano Masaya. Upon arrival we were generously upgraded to their larger apartment which was was spacious and really well kitted out (all rooms are amazing). Breakfast was hearty with fresh fruit from their farm garden. The home-roasted coffee is a real treat. They were also incredibly helpful in terms of local information and giving us lifts to bus and taxi points so we could start our day. Incredible value for money given the room and the overall experience and service. (Mike also has a fascinating family history). Muchos gracias por todo Mike y Miranda!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hello and thanks for your inquiry about El Porton Verde, Managua. Room offerings include: deluxe pool front apartment, quad bunk bed rooms, and en-suite rooms with private bath. As an alternative to the big chain hotels in hot and dirty downtown Managua, we offer a very comfortable and quiet bed and breakfast ambiance that lovers of quality lodgings with an eco-tourism aspect are finding very attractive. As we say here at the farm, "We are located in Managua, but being here feels like a world away..." We are located approximately 25 minutes drive from the airport and provide transportation to and from MGA airport. However, we are a small farm in the hills at 1,000 feet of elevation with tremendous views towards Masaya Volcano and the local mountains, so the ambiance is anything but what you will find in the city center. We are perfect for that first night and last night accomodations, especially since we offer airport transportation and local tours. If you want a restful night in a cooler and quieter environment than in the "real Managua" then think about booking with us. ... more less
