It was a truly beautiful experience to stay at Los Cardones. The grounds and lodges are kept impeccable. Not once did I see as much as an ant where it was unwelcome.
Our private cabin had an amazing, big veranda with hammocks and comfortable chairs, overlooking the beach. Ceiling fan and a safe, bed with mosquito net was very comfortable. Beautifully decorated and comfortable room and bathroom. We were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the waves every night.
Right from the start the communication with Los Cardones was friendly and professional. We missed one of our flights and arrived one day later than we had booked, no problem, no penalty, our reservation was just pushed one day forward. All the service provided and staff was excellent.
We were picked up from Managua airport by a driver that later in our stay took us out on a day trip to Lagoon de Apoyo and Masaya Volcano National Park, both at a fair price. Meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner were so fresh and good, always served with a smile. We can also recommend the great Nicaraguan coffie, and local beer Tona.
At Los Cardones you can surf, have yoga classes, ride a horse on the beach, or simply just relax and enjoy this beautiful paradise, which is what we did mostly, with massages added. Yes, there is massage service available, and what a massage. My husband is a massage therapist himself and can attest to the professionality of the ladies that treated us, in a open lodge to the sounds of the ocean.
We were so fortunate to discover this wonderfully peaceful paradise, operated in a ecologically way in harmony with nature. Thank you so much Cardones, we look forward to be back. Nicaragua is a beautiful and safe country with friendly people, still without mass tourism. Enjoy it!
