Hotel Lara’s Planet is a five room boutique guesthouse located right on the riverbank of the gentle flowing San Juan River in the pleasant town of El Castillo, with its postcard-perfect Spanish fortress on top of the hill and a stone’s throw from the roar of Raudal El Diablo (Devil’s Rapids). There are three (3) suites and two (2) rooms, each with a private bathroom. The guesthouse’s wood and bamboo construction combined with its open space structure not only brings the outside in but also produces a feeling of warmth, tranquility and harmony. This is further enhanced by the breezy, uncluttered rooms and open air café/restaurant with bamboo furniture beautifully handcrafted by Nicaraguan artisans.
The lush green of the rainforest and the guesthouse’s own garden provides restful contemplation and abundant oxygen to ensure a good night’s sleep on comfortable, clean beds.
Hotel Lara’s Planet has one of the best café/ restaurants in El Castillo and possibly within the Rio San Juan province. If you’ve tired of gallo pinto and want some variety, you will enjoy dishes such as:
•Pasta with sauce using fresh organic tomatoes, vegetables and herbs from the garden
•Pasta with coconut cream sauce made from coconuts from the garden
•Australian fish and chips
•Fresh river shrimps and river lobster
•Nachos with homemade tortilla using an original Mexican recipe
•Milkshakes made with organic milk and fruits from the garden
Échanges avec les voyageurs
A wide range of wildlife and nature tours are available and we can help to arrange these.
Activities on offer include tours to Indio Maiz Reserve, one of the most untouched reserves in Central America. The tour includes a boat trip along San Juan river from El Castillo to Bartola and from there you will be guided through cloud-covered rainforest with huge old trees, colorful birds, wild orchids, howler monkeys and many more flora and fauna to surprise you. Tours can be personalized to suit what you’d like to do. Options may include the following:
•Alligator night tour
•Cacao plantation tours and a visit to the artisanal chocolate factory
•Bathing in natural pool of Agua Fresca ( fresh water)
•Rafting in the river
•Tour of El Castillo and visit to a local’s house
•Sport fishing (prior bookings are recommended)
We kindly request guests to not throw toilet paper in the toilet bowl and instead put it in the rubbish bin provided. This is due to the septic tank system which risks being clogged and also to protect the environment. To conserve water, we would also appreciate towels being used sparingly and for our guests to take short showers. We change the bed sheets every two days or upon request.

After travelling extensively, at last I’ve decided to relocate from Australia and settle in Nicaragua. A good friend recommended that I visit this country as she knew I would love the people and the lifestyle. How right she was! It was love at first sight when I discovered the rainforest area of Rio San Juan, especially the gem of a town called “El Castillo”. It’s a joy to share our little corner of Nicaragua with people from other parts of the world. In addition to English, I also speak German and Spanish.
