Interaction with Guests Our onsite managers and volunteers are available throughout your stay along with our chef and will introduce themselves upon your arrival. The Neighborhood Playa Tesoro is located on Isla Tortuga, a 10km long island estuary and is surrounded by organic farms of corn, cheese & milk (delivered at least twice a week), free range chickens and eggs, fresh fish, crabs and lobsters and river clams from the estuary. The local farm has a wide and ever growing range of organic fruit and vegetables.
There is now a grocery store at the 5km point on the Salinas Grandes road which offers basics such as dry groceries, milk, fruits, vegetables and poultry. This is about 15 minutes drive away from the front gate. A map is available on request.
Salinas Grandes is largely undeveloped and thus a truly Nicaraguan experience. Dirt roads, power outages in bad weather and abundant wildlife are all a part of the ride. Getting Around We have two access routes: 1) Driving in off the Pan American highway from Leon or Managua. Take the Salinas Grandes turnoff at Km 78 towards the Ocean. Playa Tesoro is 14 km from this point, and at 8km you will take a left at a well marked junction that we call Los Lirios. We recommend a 2 wheel drive with high ground clearance. We are continually improving the roads and signage. Feel free to contact us before you come out, so we can arrange somebody to assist you, if needed. 2) Water taxi from Puerto Sandino to our river landing where you will be collected and transported a short 2 minute drive to your accommodations. The roads to Puerto Sandino are paved so access by smaller vehicle is easier. The water taxi costs $10 per trip. Transport can be arranged from Leon or Managua on request.
There is also local bus transport between Leon or Managua to Salinas Grandes. We can collect you from Salinas Grandes for the final 6 km. Please contact us for a map prior to arrival to ensure easy arrival. Other Things to Note We are constantly building more amenities. The common swimming pool and functioning yoga/massage center is new in January 2018. We offer fishing charters on a pre-booking basis and have a number of boats onsite for local fishing/tours. Cellular phone service works. We find What's App to be the best communication tool as our WiFi is excellent. Please contact us for a map to Playa Tesoro prior to arrival. We are in a constant state of upgrading the roads and adding signs. At this point a 2 wheel drive with high ground clearance is recommended. ...
