Managua Farmstay Bed and Breakfast El Porton Verde is a fresh eco-friendly option for visitors who need to stay in Managua but do not want to stay in a chain hotel in the center of the hot and dusty city. Located at 300 meters of elevation in an area of small, family-owned haciendas, this almost forgotten corner of the city of Managua is some three kilometers to the southwest of km. 10.5, Carretera a Masaya. Within ten minutes of driving time you can find the best shopping, entertainment, health care, and other high-quality offerings that in Nicaragua can only be found in Managua.
Our small inn can host groups of up to twelve in a private apartment, en-suite guest room, and high-end dormitory-style arrangements. All rooms come with quality comfortable beds, screened windows and doors, ceiling fans, custom-made furnishings, and the attention to detail that you would expect at luxury hotel-style accommodations. We prepare healthy Nicaraguan breakfasts; provide free Wi-Fi Internet, phone calls to the USA, farm walks, and coming in March, a lovely private swimming pool for use by our clients!
Our common areas include wide corridors with wonderful views, a shady patio and barbecue area, and almost eight acres of forested land with plenty of fruit trees whose tasty fruit you are free to pick! We also have an excellent entertainment room featuring a pico-projector with a sound system that creates a home theatre ambience in which you will enjoy relaxing after a busy day. Bring your DVDs or other portable media and we’ll put your movie on as the night’s featured entertainment program. Get the popcorn ready!
In addition to the previously-mentioned filling breakfast that typically includes many items grown or raised right here on the farm, we can also provide healthy lunches and/or dinners upon advance request. Partaking in the natural ambience, fresh breezes, birds flying at eye-level, and enjoying a tasty meal while admiring the view of the Masaya Volcano and the forested hills of “La Panorama” is an unforgettable experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the capital city of Managua.
For first-time visitors or more frequent guests who have “been there and done that” with the airport and city center hotel offerings, your hosts Mike and Miranda (in addition to providing a quality stay in a healthy cooler environment) can provide helpful advice and connections. Whether your visit is for pleasure, business, relocation, health care, or just to get to know this beautiful country, we love to share our passion for Nicaragua.
Farmstay El Porton Verde also can arrange for airport pickup and/or drop-off, rental cars, adventure/relocation/healthcare tours, etc.—all depending upon on the needs of our guests. If you want personalized attention, a “soft landing” upon arrival in Nicaragua, and a chance to visit a working farm, we look forward to meeting you soon!
