La Isla Elvis Chavarría : One of the Solentiname archipelago’s jewels, La Elvis features a museum, a hiking trail, an arboretum, and a wonderful host community of farmers, fishers, and artists.
Los Guatuzos Wildlife Refuge : This is one of the best places in the south to get down and dirty with nature; start by identifying a few of the 389 species of tropical birds.
Sábalos Lodge : Bamboo, thatch, lazy afternoons, and the burbling river — this lodge is close to the jungle and far away from everything else.
El Castillo : The mighty embattlements of this historic mud-river fortress have watched over the river since the days pirates prowled the Spanish mainland.
San Juan de Nicaragua : Remote and thick with history, San Juan de Nicaragua is an adventure in itself; the local blue lagoon swimming hole is dramatic and an easy dugout-canoe ride away.
