Nicaragua Hotel and Hostel options can be a little limited by western standards, even in comparison to other Central American countries. However tourism is becoming an increasingly important industry and the range and coverage of quality accommodation in Nicaragua is rising rapidly.
Nicaragua Luxury Hotels and Nicaragua Resorts
Nicaragua Luxury hotels and quality accommodations are available in all the major cities and tourist hot-spots, but if you stray from these popular areas finding high-end lodging becomes more of a challenge. If youâ€™re staying in Granada, hotels run anywhere from very expensive to almost nothing. A stay at the La Gran Francia will cost you $90 per night on the low end. Nicaragua hotels often offer luxury amenities, like airport pick up and breakfast, but you might not find exactly what you would in another country for the same price. Things like Wifi are sometimes hard to find.
Nicaragua Budget Hotels and Ecuador Hostels
At the other end of the scale in Nicaragua, hostels and budget hotels are plentiful. Travelers can find many small bed and breakfasts, guest houses and a growing network of hostels in Nicaragua. For example, stay in La Penita Hospedaje in Isla de Ometeps will cost you $4 per night. Although it is often easy to find extremely cheap accommodation, there is a great variety in the qualityâ€”so shop around and make sure you ask to see your room before you commit.
Note that often paying as little as a dollar extra can have a huge effect on the quality of your lodgings. Such a small amount might mean the difference between a sweltering room and an air conditioned one, for example.
Nicaragua Camping and Nicaragua Ecolodges
Outside of the cities, ecotourism is slowly developing and the countryside now is dotted with jungle lodges and excellent hacienda-style accommodations, many of which are based around coffee plantations or fincas. For the more adventurous travelers in Nicaragua, camping is also an option. In Refugio Bartola, Nicaragua, cheap hotels and camping are easy to come by. You can find a place that offers access to trails and rents canoes.
Nicaragua Hotel and Camping Safety Tips
No matter where you decide to lay your head, make sure to keep a close watch on any valuables. Donâ€™t leave any expensive items in an unlocked room or unsecure space and make sure you think twice about leaving cash or personal items with the staff of any establishment.
Also be aware of any place that advertises itself as a â€śmotelâ€ť or as â€śopen 24 hoursâ€ť, in many cases these establishments may be love hotels that charge by the hour.
