Real guests • Real stays • Real opinions
Casa del Bosque and Casa Mono Congo have an elevated position overlooking Lake Nicaragua and the volcanoes and forests of Ometepe island. The guest houses are set in 30 acres of organic farm which grows produce for the guesthouses, our restaurant Cafe Campestre and for local commercial sale. At Casa del Bosque we have three private en-suite rooms, each have doors opening onto a private area of the surrounding veranda. There is a communal kitchen, living and dining area and access into the gardens. At Casa Mono Congo we have 2 rooms with private en-suite bathrooms and access to their own private verandas. There is a communal kitchen and dining area. A delicious breakfast will be cooked freshly for our guests each morning using produce from our farm, with copious amounts of freshly brewed local coffee.
I been living on Ometepe for 12 years and started construction of the farm, guesthouse and restaurant Cafe Campestre in Balgue. Our ethos is sustainable, organic and local, using sound environmental practices. I'm knowledgeable about the local tourist attractions and enjoy helping our guests discover and explore the best of Ometepe.
Balgue is well located for exploring Ometepe. There is great sunset and wildlife kayaking nearby, you can climb the volcano walking out the back of the farm, there is wonderful fresh water swimming in several nearby locations, we have bicycles for guests to use free of charge, there are expansive views onto the lake and across the farm and hammocks for relaxing. The village of Balgue is very rural, it offers an interesting look into the lives of the local community, we have great local coffee and there are good short walks nearby also. Further afield there are Canopy tours, butterfly houses, museums, ancient rock art, waterfalls and several beaches to explore.
