The ‘Finca” sits prominently on the edge of a quiet country road at 4000 ft (1200 mts) above sea level – offering spectacular views of the Dariense mountain range and the green valley of Matagalpa far below. As a working organic coffee farm with an informal atmosphere, you can experience the richness of the culture while you enjoy a hike through the cloud forest on one of our five well groomed trails, exploring up close and personal the life of the campesinos and the diverse flora and fauna of the region.
Finca Esperanza Verde (FEV) began as a unique experiment in ecotourism – part organic coffee farm and part tourist lodge. Started in 2000 by Sister Communities of San Ramon from North Carolina, 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. This year we were nominated for World’s Leading Eco-lodge by World Travel Awards. As owners of FEV we are honored to be able to continue the legacy by providing a unique experience for our visitors and community folks alike.
