Ensuite Queen Tranquil Farmstay BB in Managua

Ensuite Queen Tranquil Farmstay BB in Managua.

 

I recently moved where I sleep to the former caretaker’s room off to the side of the main house in order to paint and prepare my old room to be offered on airbnb.com, booking.com and other fantastic websites.

In looking at the viewing and booking statistics on airbnb.com, I found that the most commonly searched room is a private, en-suite room with queen sized bed and private bath. Since I had another room right next door, that is almost exactly the same in terms of location, comfort, and amenities, it made sense to add another room of the same exact type to the mix of rooms available at the Farmstay.

I hope you enjoyed this post and are now interested to book via airbnb.com! Click the link above to go to the booking and calendar page.

Mike’s El Porton Verde is a great launching pad for your Nica adventure. Mike picked our family up from the airport and gave us our first day’s tour of Masaya and San Juan del Oriente. After that we felt comfortable moving around using expressos. Each day we would come home from our amazing adventures to find a cool pool and cold drinks waiting for us. Juana will cook amazing breakfasts and the occasional dinner. Mike will help you get set with local currency, a SIM for your phone, and the best places to pick up art and cigars. Whatever the need Mike is the man.

Thanks so much to the Alaska Kings! One of the true pleasures of being a small innkeeper is getting to be friends with some really wonderful guests. Well, this family was awesome. We had a lot of fun together. After staying at the Farmstay, they went on an amazing adventure in the Los Guatuzos National Park and had some experiences that few if any travelers have had in Nicaragua. Kudos!

If you’ve ever wanted to own your very own island, this is your chance!  This is one of the famous Isletas de Granada, just offshore from the colonial city of Granada. There are some lovely properties owned by wealthy Nicaraguans and expat investors out there on the isletas. Some of the homes are quite beautiful and luxurious. If you’ve never been to visit las Isletas, I highly recommend it!

This is the latest information about tourism in Nicaragua during the third quarter of the year 2013. I see some interesting information here and wonder if you do too?

What I’m seeing right away are two things:

  • European, Central and South American tourists have a higher daily spend then do North Americans and “Other Regions” spends more then everyone else on average..
  • Most visitors average approximately ten days in-country.

My takeaway on this is that it would be interesting to see where the folks from “Other Regions” originate. My assumption is Asians mostly from the PRC, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and other countries such as South Korea. The data fits this assumption in that this segment are here in Nicaragua for a relatively short duration; they stay in-country just one day more then Central Americans, and they have that higher spend rate.

I am surprised that Europeans do not, on average, stay longer in-country then do North Americans. My possibly incorrect assumption is that Europeans have longer vacations then do folks from N.A. which would tend to support their staying longer.

Possibly it is the snowbirds from the USA and Canada that have made the data indicate a near-tie in total length of stay? I have lots of guests who come down in November or December and are staying until March or April. Whereas more “vacation” oriented visitors are generally here seven, 10, or 14 days.

Regardless of length of stay or daily spend, staying and spending at Farmstay El Porton Verde is always a good way to go! Cheers, Mike @ Farmstay El Porton Verde
