We had a few days to explore the area around Orquidea del Sur. One morning we all climbed into the four wheel drive ATV’s and got a tour of the area.
There are a few developments in the area with lots for sale. This part of Nicaragua is the Pacific Region, also known as The Emerald Coast. It got that name for a reason.
The main road to the resort.
Survivor Nicaragua was filmed in this area in 2010. Gabriel knows where all the filming locations are but isn’t giving it up.
One afternoon we visited Treecasa Resort, a retreat built around two giant Ceiba trees (treecasaresort.com).
Their chef created a tasty seafood platter for us, out of professional courtesy for Gabriel.
Mother Nature provided us a light show in the evening.
