My wife and I recently returned from a delayed honeymoon where we had the pleasure to visit and stay at Totoco Eco Lodge. The tranquility and views from Totoco can't be beat and there is no place on the island that offers this type of once in a lifetime experience. They have done a fantastic job of incorporating local and...

My wife and I, along with our two children really enjoyed Totoco. It is a place to relax and experience the island. It is out of the way and nobody is in a hurry. Martin is the host and he is friendly and a wealth of information about Ometepe and the Village of Balgue, which is adjacent to Totoco. He...

My daughter and I recently stayed at Totoco in August 2011. I had not planned to visit Nicaragua but my daughter's travel companion jumped shipped on her half way through her vacation. So I told my daughter I would meet her in Managua and then travel to Totoco on Ometepe Island. We stayed in the dormitory at Totoco since my...

We cannot recommend Totoco highly enough. Not only were the facilities of high quality, but the view from the bar / dining area was stunning. It's a tough life watching the sun set over a volcano with a cold drink ... We could not ask for better food and we are very fussy about standards and fresh ingredients. Martin and...

If you've already decided to go to Ometepe, you know you're up for a travel adventure. Be prepared for the bumpy roads, expensive taxis, and lenghthy trips to see the sites. However, our stay at Totoco was well worth it. The views from the property, the pool, and from our private lodge "Bamboo" were outstanding. Breakfast and Dinner are included...

"I thought you had to go to the South Pacific to find grass hut cabins, an exquisite little swimming pool on the side of a volcano, other things you might associate with luxury, all surrounded by tropical jungle, parrots, flowers in every color growing naturally, non-harmful bugs and amphibs and ALL off the electrical grid (solar and other types of...

We were so lucky to have found Totoco ... set in the beautiful community of Balgue, in what feels like the middle of the jungle. The lodges are all very private, with exceptional views of Volcano Conception, but most importantly every aspect of the lodge has been carefully thought out ( hugely comfortable) and thoughtfully presented (favourite little touch being...

Spectacular setting and view of lake and vulcano, great architecture, beautiful pool with a view, nice staff, especially liked the combination of eco lodge hotel, eco farm and development foundation. Totoco is not only a great place to stay, but also makes a difference for the local community. We stayed with the family (2 kids age 3 and 7) and...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in June and loved this place. In fact it was our favorite hotel of all the places we stayed in Nicaragua. The cabanas are really clean and tastefully decorated. The sunsets from the porch of our cabana were beautiful! And Jonathon was fabulous. I forgot my North Face pants at the...

I recommend renting a 4 x 4 to be able to drive around Ometepe, and you definitely need one to get to Totoco Eco-lodge.
