Rancho Chilamate is a small eco-friendly boutique hotel with a rustic Nicaraguan style and a bohemian feel about it. The hacienda was designed and built by Blue, the owner of the ranch, who came to Nicaragua from Canada over 10 years ago. There is an authentic feeling of the Wild West, with its swinging doors and boot room where you get dressed up for the ride of your life.

The place is open, fresh, and cool, with a gentle breeze flowing through and relaxing music always on the go to add to the chilled vibes. All the rooms lead to the central patio / pool area where you can chill out and relax in several lounge and hammock areas. Immerse yourself in the stunning tropical landscapes and arouse your senses with the magnificent colors of the lush flora and fauna of the surrounding gardens.

All bedrooms are air conditioned and offer double beds with extremely comfortable mattresses, stone floors, and genuine Nicaraguan furniture. Spacious bathrooms are en-suite. You can step straight out of your bedroom into a refreshing pool.


Programming is of course weather and tide dependent and is subject to change. But we know you will have a good time.
