Beschrijving van de Accomodatie Inrichting

We offer various types of hospitality like private rooms, dormitories, camping areas and hammocks. We organise many activities like free yoga , permaculture courses, cacao ceremonies, volcanoes tours, massages , workshops and lots of other activities. We have a vegetarian and vegan farm to table restaurant open all day and Tue and Sat we have Pizza night party, with fire shows, dancing, natural cocktails and fun. We are in the Nicaraguan Ometepe Island, in the area of Santa Cruz / Madronal, in the Maderas volcano, one km before Balgue. We are located near to some of the best and finest attractions of the area such as Volcano Maderas, Volcano Concepcion and Playa Santa Cruz, amongst other interesting spots of our location. The farm is 300m from the main road and that keep the place an oasis of peace... We have various types of hospitality on offer. Private rooms, dormitories, camping areas and hammocks are situated in various locations on the farm. Everything has been built or planned to be immersed in the natural environment and to respect it greatly. Our great variety of choices means that our hospitality is accessible to all kinds of people and budgets. The hostel is located in a slope and there is always some breeze that keeps the rooms naturally fresh and ventilated so we don't need to waist energy in using fans and definitely no air conditioner. Bring a flash light for the night, there are lights in all the huts but the footpaths that connect them have few lights to keep the habitat more natural.

    I loved staying at zopilote. You have to be prepared,it is like camping on an ecofarm in the jungle. Read that again, it is like camping on an ecofarm in the jungle ♥️. You have to be into nature and willing to use a compost toilet (which is the only toilet that makes sense here in Nicaragua). The staff were absolutely wonderful, speaking slowly so I could practice my Spanish. I didn't like the bed in my room, but after talking to the staff this was resolved very quickly. Loved loved loved it.

    Mixed feelings about Zopilote. It is a total hippie experience, which I liked but some things annoyed me. Loved the pizza night in terms of vibes, music, perfomances but the pizzas were quite dry. Also didn't really like the breakfast. I have nothing against composting toilets, on the contrary, but the toilets just didn't seem cleaned and toilet paper was often missing. The people working there were not really proactive. This place could be amazing but it is just lacking some decent management.

    De plek is mooi, midden in de natuur. Doordat het in de natuur is, heb je ook overal beesten, compost wc's en buitendouches (zonder deur). Dat hoort erbij. De sfeer is fijn, maar persoonlijk vond ik het eten wat aan de dure kant, de Pizza avonden overrated en weinig keuze in drinken. Er waren ook continu dubbele boekingen waardoor mensen geen slaapplaats hadden terwijl ze wel gereserveerd hadden.

    Good food! Beautiful place, dorm without walls but individual mosquitonets was a nice experience. However there were no good places to chill (no hammocks) except the restaurant where it was often crowded. Also, I feit the vibe wasn't very welcoming as a lot of the guests are volunteers and feels a bit like intruding if you only stay for a few days. Great to go here for food but not sleep.

    Don't go here! We waited for 2 hours (!) to get checked in. Than, after, an insanely rude guy walked us to our room. He didn't even speak to us. We had a private room, but the hygiene was far to be found. We even ended up with bedbugs... Also, we stayed above the kitchen and it sounded like people were in our room when they started preparing at 6 am. The food at zopilote is also super gross. Our breakfast tasted like it was spoiled. Don't save up those extra euros! Its not worth it!
