Activities Directory

You can arrange many things to do with local guides and small businesses near Selvista. All suggestions listed here are within walking distance of the Selvista farm, and transport and rentals offer drop-off and pick-up at the property.

All of these local providers are bilingual (English and Spanish) and have consistently provided excellent service to our guests.

Please contact each provider directly for details and prices. Book early; 1-2 days in advance is recommended! You will pay the provider directly in cash (córdobas or dollars).

Feel free to directly tip anyone as feedback for their service. In Nicaragua, customary tipping is 10% for good service, or more for excellent service.
