As a green-designed eco-lodge, we are fervently committed to sustainable tourism and the protection of Nicaragua natural resources. Since Hacienda Puerta del Cielo’s inception fourteen years ago, we have provided economic stimulation; employed hundreds of local tradesmen and craftsmen; promoted tourism; and laid miles of pipelines providing potable water to our neighboring communities.
Hacienda personnel are offered educational opportunities, English lessons and on-the-job training. Our goal is to provide each employee with marketable skills which will allow them to support their families and make a positive impact on the community. We are proud of our staff’s dedication and success stories: one long-term employee attained his architectural degree while at the Hacienda, another has achieved his medical degree. Three former and present staff members, started their studies at our Hacienda and have now completed their degrees in English, Engineering and Hotel Administration. We are also proud to sponsor three small pre-schools in the vicinity.
With thoughtful donations from many of our generous guests, we have been able to provide much needed educational supplies to 80 children in our immediate area. In the future, we hope to continue and further expand our commitment to the welfare of our community.
Hacienda Puerta del Cielo in Nicaragua is an intimate four-star hotel located on the rim of an ancient caldera, with 180° views of the expansive Masaya Volcano National Park and Masaya Lagoon, both of which border our property. The active Masaya Volcano is within this national park, (centrally positioned at a 5km distance from our Hacienda), and is the ever-present backdrop to our magnificent setting. Each of our “private casitas” has its own private terrace with breathtaking views of the natural beauty that Nicaragua has to offer.
We are honored to have received over four hundred individual Five-Star Reviews from previous guests on TripAdvisor, as well as, several TripAdvisor awards including Top 25 Best Small hotels in all of Central America, Most Romantic Hotel in Nicaragua, #2 Best Small Hotel in Nicaragua and the Certificate of Excellence Awards for the past 7 years in a row, (2011 – 2017)!
Our little piece of paradise was designed for adults to relax and unwind in the privacy and tranquility of our beautiful off-the-grid location. Our elevated, 65-acre, cliff-like property affords spectacular windswept vistas from every area of the hotel.
For the comfort and convenience of guests who choose to remain at our Hacienda throughout the day, guests are invited to enjoy our home-cooked meals, (which we serve at specified times on our dining terrace).
