  • My friend and I are past week 3 days in Miraflor Reserva. We have 1 day in advance by Treehuggers in Esteli everything perfectly. Our first destination was La Labranza in Zona Bajo. Guide Jaimy and his family (Finca Ojo del Agua) have made us feel very at home and the beautiful surroundings. Father Orlando has told us a lot about the history of Miraflor and how tough life was to 20 years back. The second destination was in zona media at the family of Maya and Marlon and Guide A.. Great dear family! We have many helped with cooking and washing dishes and played with the children. The third day in Zona Alta we visited horse, because there was a lot of mud. Guide Jason was also really good. All in all, we have had fantastic days with sweet and open families. We have delicious eaten (biological and organic vegetables) and learned a lot about the finca and everyday life. In addition, we have also good our Spanish practice. The guides and families speak clearly and slowly Spanish. This has made our trip extra special!
