눉There wasn't really anything we disliked. The only thing I can think of was that when we were invited to have dinner and go out with the family, they could have said in advance how much it would cost rather than just giving us the bill the next day after breakfast. Other than that, we had a great stay!
눇The Ortiz family were wonderful. Very welcoming (greeting us with 'mi casa su casa') and attentive to our needs. They even invited us to have dinner with them and go to a local karaoke night one evening! Their house was fairly easy to find and it had lots of information about things to do in the area. Our bedroom was spacious and the lock worked well. We felt really safe. It was really easy to hang a mosquito net too. The toilets and showers are outside which is common in Nicaragua. It is pretty basic living but it is certainly worth it to get a real feel for how Nicaraguans live. Only Ortiz speaks English so it was a great opportunity to practice our Spanish. The family offer affordable food throughout the day as a sort of restaurant. We only had breakfast which was really tasty - we went for the Nica breakfast of gallo pinto, scrambled eggs, toast and coffee every day but there were other options too. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our few days with them and even asked to stay an extra night. The cat next door had 3 small kittens which was another reason to stay longer!
