Welcome to Finca Esperanza Verde


About 14 years ago, former owners Richard and Lonna Harkrader of Sister Communities of San Ramon Nicaragua (SCSRN)  started FEV as a unique experiment in ecotourism and local empowerment – part organic coffee farm – part tourist lodge. As new owners of the FEV, we are delighted to be able to continue their legacy in providing a unique experience for our visitors. The finca sits prominently on the edge of a quiet country road at 4000 ft (1200 mts) above sea level, providing spectacular views of the Dariense mountain range and the green valley of Matagalpa far below. The farm provides local Nicaraguans with profitable and sustainable ways to share their culture with visiting tourists and has received international recognition as a model of poverty alleviation through sustainable tourism and other socially responsible programs.
