Where you’ll be

Santa Cruz, Ometepe Island, Nicaragua

Islanders are friendly, helpful hard-working proud Nicaraguans.
The Bella Beach Casita and Beach House are surrounded by a volcanic rock wall for privacy and centrally located on the paved Main Road which passes thru the Santa Cruz community on Ometepe Island. Your private guest house is just a step to the longest stretch of sandy beach...kilometers to walk and explore. The warm clean lake is very shallow here with a sand bottom and no currents. On windy days you will have fun in the waves.
Next door and within a few minutes walk there are many local businesses including several small produce stalls, grocery shops and various comedors/restaurants serving freshly prepared delicious economical meals including smoothies, fresh fruit juices, and wood-fired homemade meals with a specialty of lake bass. Produce trucks pass by frequently so we can let you know what is available such as mangoes, papayas, avocados etc...

International teacher & traveler, bilingual, very active in local issues including education, water and community projects such as local road and beach clean ups every season with the neighborhood children. Currently working on trying to get workable laptops for excellent 2nd year university students. Donate a used but good laptop - take everything off it and donate it to progress in education. It really makes a difference to these students' educational success and their families future too. Also we accept anything for the local school children and teachers since the schools, children and their families basically have nothing. Items can be used and in good condition including puzzles, coloring books, stickers, backpacks, or anything for school and learning will be put to very good use and bring lots of smiles. Sporting equipment, used clothing and shoes in any size are all appreciated and will be donated to the local school children who help to clean the beach and road several times a year. All donations will be greatly appreciated and support educational success! Every backpack, pencil, eraser, sharpener, scissors, glue stick, box of crayons can make a huge difference to these children, families and communities. Please let me know if you can help to bring donations! We enjoy hosting guests and meeting new people - sharing from our gardens or something unique and wonderful from the island along with intercultural exchanges. Your reservation for our guest house is a donation with profits used for our local educational/environmental projects supporting local school children, teachers and families. We have received excellent reviews on travel sites such as tripadvisor, etc.. and we appreciate recommendations. We look forward to meeting and hosting you on magical Ometepe Island!
