Hi Louis
Thank you for you great review. We are very pleased to hear that you had a great time with Bigfoot Family. For sure people have to check it out our Bigfoot Beach House. Its our little brother beach front located in las Peñitas.
Thank you once again for your review Louis.

Nicaragua, when I first heard of this country's name, I was little worried that I am going to this place. Not much information about the country, the only thing I knew was volcano boarding, and its the poorest country in Central America.

However, Bigfoot Hostel changed my whole experience! The staff members at Bigfoot treat you like a family. When I walked in, they first asked for my name, and since then, they called me with my name. The staffs make, Im gunna say the best Mojito in town.The kitchen staffs are amazing at cooking (believe me and try Joe's Hot BBQ Pizza of theirs, or any pizza; its amazing!), and there are kind maintenance staffs and security guards who say hi to you whenever you walk in.

The volcano boarding is a blast. The guide, Jeremy, is full with energy and explains about the volcano so well. It is indeed intimidating at first to see the volcano, how high it is and when you go up, looking down the hill is frustrating. However, Jeremy makes the hike fun by using jokes, and he taught us how to control the board exactly so that I don't have to be worried about falling down.

I definitely recommend this place, a family-type hostel you can enjoy. Oh I forgot to mention, there are parties like every other day, so make sure you check it out!!

Room Tip: Choose the A/C room, makes your life so much easier.

Hi Yun
Thank you sooooo much for taking your time to write this amazing review. This is one of the best review I saw today. We feel like we have accomplished what we promise, FUN FOR EVERYONE!
Im so happy to hear that you and your family felt welcome and part of our huge family. Just one fact that might shock you is that Nicaragua is the second safest country in the Western Hemisphere after Canada. Nicaragua is a beautiful country that people are slowly discovering as they get more facts out there. Anyway we are very happy to hear about your experience with Bigfoot Family. Thank you for mention our great guide Jeremy and for sure he is full of energy and fun jokes that keep people relaxed while hiking one of the most active basaltic cinder cone volcanos in the world.
By the way Joe's Hot BBQ pizza is also one of my favorite pizzas.
Yun thank you once again for this amazing review. We couldn't be happier than receive a review like this. Its what make us work harder and harder to serve people like you.
Take care and have a safe trip
Bigfoot Family

We had an absolutely brilliant day volcano boarding with Bigfoot. Our guide Jérémie was brilliant, very enthusiastic and he got some great photos - which as he had promised, were posted on facebook the same day.
We were not staying at Bigfoot hostel but we heard they were the best to go with, and we are glad we booked with them! The boards they have are the fastest, Jérémie was brilliant and you get a free drink at the end.
One of the best experiences we have had so far over 11 weeks. Definitely try it and go with Bigfoot.

very fun hostel with a great staff. stayed in a shared dorm and beds were comfortable and clean.
Volcano boarding is one of the must do things if you are traveling around Nicaragua. Not only is it a thrilling experience but the views are amazing and it is a pretty fun hike up to the top.
Big shout out to Nick and Mike for helping out along the way

Room Tip: pay the extra $2 for a room with AC. it is by far worth it
