Hotels in Nicaragua

The property has low-rent oceanfront rooms for strapped travelers. Walk the 20 paces to the end of the pier, over the dazzling blue-green shallows and into the rustic, colonnaded one-room restaurant.

The property's 20 cabanas overlook an infinity pool.

The hotel was originally built in the 16th century, and in 1995 sensitively restored. The 21 rooms, on two stories, are built around a large courtyard open to the sky. The floors of the rooms are gold-and–terra-cotta tile with a patina of age.

Most guests heading to this thatched-roof resort near La Flor National Park pack hiking boots and swimsuits, anticipating the area’s tropical forests and Pacific Coast beaches. But some also bring books to donate to the school that Morgan’s Rock helps support.
