AN EXCEPTIONAL HOSTEL with an INCOMPARABLE NATURAL ENVIRONMENT
By Néstor Alí Gómez
If you are looking to take a real rest and connect with nature, find peace of mind and cultivate your inner peace at a low cost, then Tortugas Hostal will be your best selection.
This local enterprise is located in Playa El Coco, on the Nicaraguan Pacific with white sands, semi-virgin coast line and considered a refuge for wildlife just a few miles south of the City of San Juan del Sur.
This cozy hostel is the perfect place for those travelers who want to enjoy relaxation activities. “Tortugas Hostal is a place designed for relaxation, since it is in direct contact with nature,” said Raysa Cuadra Sing, co-owner of the business with her partner; Mirko Cialone.
Despite only having opened its doors 5 months ago (December 2017), Tortugas Hostal is rapidly positioning itself in the market (mainly foreign). “We are very excited. We are growing as a company. To date, we offer hostel and restaurant services. We are also developing special events such as; yoga retreats, celebration of social events and other services. Our prices are accessible.” Raysa explained.
Tortugas Hostal also has a private cabin for two people and two cabins with three shared rooms (in each cabin). The site has a swimming pool, barbecue area and an organic garden where some vegetables and legumes are grown and used in the restaurant.
Raysa reiterated that the restaurant serves from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm and offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. For people wishing to book accommodation; “check in” is from 1:00 pm until 10:00 pm and check out from 7:00 am until 11:00 am. Reception is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm.
Raysa indicated that their medium term plan is to turn the site into an “Eco Hostel”, so they are already making efforts to respect nature and develop actions that contribute to conservation.
For the month of April, Tortugas Hostal has activated a “2 for 1 Package” promotion. Clients pay for one night and the next one will be free. This promotion is valid per person.
