  • Description

    Description

    We are a a Nica and Belgian couple managing an Eco Hotel/Restaurant (with a big swimming pool) in the center of León
    Our purpose is to make as much as posible with recycling "stuff"
    Also to serve healthy organic homemaid food (as much as possible in Nicaragua)
    the hostel is a postive/quiet place tucked away from the noise of Leon, with lots of trees, a garden (where we grow some herbs for our natural juices) We have tried to make everything we can with recycled things.
    We want to have a place for travellers to meet,to be mindful of how we treat our Earth, to help us create a postive space, and to be energized about improving our Casa

    Because we live as a comunity you will learn how to live amongst people of different backgrounds,opinions,beliefs,way of living ect. We cook as a community so you will learn different ways of cooking and how to cook and shop for a big group of people. You will also work with Nicaraguayan people every day, practising and improving your spanish.
