La Bastilla Ecolodge

La Bastilla EcolodgeVenture deep into the folds of the enchanting Datanli el Diablo nature reserve and there, at a soaring height of 1200m, you’ll find the idyllic La Bastilla Ecolodge awaiting your visit. Against the backdrop of the emerald cloud forest and the echoes of howler monkeys, you can choose to spend your days hiking through remote native forests, kayaking on the crystalline waters of the nearby Apanas lake or simply lazing in a rocking-chair on the wooden balcony as the spectacular panoramic views fall away at your feet.

By visiting the charming eco-friendly, solar-powered La Bastilla Ecolodge you will truly be choosing to travel in a socially and environmentally responsible way. The Ecolodge is owned by the La Bastilla Technical Centre for Agriculture and Tourism and 100% of the profits generated by hotel are reinvested back into the education of the students, all of whom come from local low-income families, thereby providing the future generation of Nicaragua with the tools to lift themselves out of poverty.

Rooms include free breakfast and all delicious meals are freshly prepared in our onsite restaurant. We offer comfortable dormitories and even deck-camping platforms for those travelling on a budget.

When not hiking around the farm and nature reserve, or tasting our gourmet coffee, you can relax in a hammock on our platform common area, enjoying the views and amazing sunsets.

La Bastilla Ecolodge is a paradise in harmony with nature, and we would love to welcome you to stay with us. The lodge offers accommodation in the form of cabins or camping platforms.

We enjoy a beautiful mountain setting in the Datanli-El Diablo nature reserve, on a coffee farm with the highest level of Rainforest Alliance certification and stunning views towards the Apanas lake. The area is a tranquil primary cloud forest which offers fantastic hiking & bird watching opportunities, with over 100 species of trees and abundant wildlife including over 83 types of birds. The remoteness of the location enables you to experience nature first-hand, as you awake to vibrant birdsong and howler monkey calls.

From the Ecolodge you can also enjoy boat rides, coffee tours, horse rides & more as we are located close to the Apanas lake and several local communities which are fascinating to explore.

Vagabond Travel came into being April 16, 2014 when I departed Canada heading for Mexico City. I have no destination in mind, nor an itinerary to follow. This is a sort of website, journal and travel blog all rolled into one. That's about it.
