We had a great time staying with Jeff and Jasmina. They are very kind people, they welcomed us in their paradise - home. Jeff told us a lot about the farm, showed us the beautiful waterfall and gave us our first yoga class. Jasmina cooked the most delicious meals. We enjoyed the tour with Chilo and Brian very much too! All in all it was a wonderful experience and gracias a Jeff y Jasmina! (Y Chilo y Brian tambien)
My friend and I LOVED staying with Jeff and Jasmina on their finca. We really enjoyed learning about the farm, practicing yoga, and getting to know them and the rest of Jasmina's family in the surrounding community. Jasmina's brother is also a terrific guide and can give you different tours. The community is a little far removed from other things but it is easy to get around to neighboring places via buses. Jeff and Jasmina are very helpful when it comes to getting you information about the public transportation. If you want a different experience that is off the beaten track and one that will give you insight into life in rural Nicaragua, I highly recommend this host!
The Jeff and Jasmina were very welcoming. The meal plan was excellent. The highlight of our trip was the motor tour offered by Chilo. For anyone headed out this direction it is a MUST!
I can say that this is not a place to stay for anyone who has problems sleeping through loud noises. Even with earplugs the wind makes it hard to fall asleep.
It was an absolutely awesome experience staying with Jeff and Jasmina. Their property is beautiful and the nearby waterfall is stunning. The meals Jasmina prepares are huge and delicious, well worth the (very small) additional fee. If you're looking for a dynamic, interesting off-the-grid experience this is it!
Jeff and Jasmina were great hosts. They gave us a peak into the life in more rural Nicaragua. Jasmina is a great cook and we didn't have any trouble drinking from their fresh water spring. We took advantage of the 35$ water tour and has a lot of fun zipping around and seeing sights from the back of a motorbike with Janine's brothers Chilo and Jose.
Jasmina and Jeff were amazing hosts and made the time we spent at their farm near Diriamba very special. The house is located in the countryside 10 minutes away from the most beautiful waterfall I´ve ever seen (and I saw many). The facilities are basic, but thought through. They have everything that is really needed and we found the experience of going back to the basics wonderful. We also enjoyed two tours conducted by Jasmina´s brother. We loved the first tour where we learned much about typical Nicaraguan life in the countryside. We had bad luck with the second tour to a waterfall/ lagoon/ the sea because it was rainy a considerable part of the day and because it is all about swimming it is not advisable for a rainy day, but it´s supposed to be beautiful on sunny days. Jasmina is a good chef and adjusted typical Nicaraguan food to our vegetarian diet. The portions were enormous and tasty. Jeff is a very knowledgeable and sociable person who knows a lot about the region, yoga, permaculture, philosophy and much more. He is very willing to share his knowledge and time. It was very inspiring, thank you so much!
Jeff & Jasmina were wonderful hosts, the stay was great, the highlight the short walk to the waterfall and having a dip during the day. Jasmina provided amazingly tasty and filling local meals. It was very relaxing and private.

Welcome to our finca! Around these parts, we love planting, ukulele, ashtanga yoga, the beach, and especially receiving airbnb guests! Lifelong learning - only when we're not farming, is what we love and we hope to share a part of the life here with you. A little help from youtube university and books certainly help due to our remote location.
Once an airbnb guest and Zen buddhist practicioner was wearing a wristband with the message, "Live Joyfully". We couldn't agree more.
