Selvista is known as a top destination on Isla Ometepe. It’s a luxurious but conscious agro-tourism business with re-established fruit forests offer incredible learning experiences.

See how to dissect and prepare a jackfruit, dehydrate mangoes or make pitanga jam. Chop into your own coconut and get tips on how to use a machete. Help us feed the pigs, chickens and ducks and discover some of the uses of the medicinal herbs that we grow here.

It’s known for its stunning views and convenient location at the base of the hiking trails. Take a massage on your balcony overlooking a perfectly formed Volcano, Conception.

Stroll into the rice fields and wander down to the village; fishing boats bring in fresh food most mornings just five minutes from the farm driveway at the lake front.

We’re not the only ones who think we’re the top choice either! See some recommendations for Nicaraguan accommodation from Suitcase Stories too.
