Nicaragua is amongst the safest countries in Central America. We have a team member present at every property 24 hours/day and we also work with a private security company who does rounds throughout the night. You are very safe here. Like always though, be sure to lock your door and secure valuables when you leave.


Do you have parking? 

We have street parking outside the building. This is a safe place to park as we have staff and guards on site 24/7. Parking is free of charge. At Hotel Pacifico and Casa Ruth, we offer secured private parking.


Can I bring an animal/pet?

Unfortunately no outside animals or pets allowed at our places.

Do you have internet?

Yes, we have free fiber optic internet and WiFi throughout the property. We have gone great lengths to get the best internet provider in Nicaragua. We are in Nicaragua and sometimes, service fluctuates, sometimes the power goes out, and they’re great opportunities to disconnect from the rest of the world.

Can I smoke in the room? 

No, absolutely no smoking in the rooms nor anywhere inside the building. Failure to follow this rule can result in a fine of $250 USD.


Can I bring my own food and alcohol? 

You can bring both food and alcohol in to our hotels. Outside alcohol is not permitted in Casa Oro Hostel, you can buy beers on the first floor. Please respect quiet hours when hanging out at night in common areas. Food can also be delivered from our restaurant in Casa Oro straight to your room between 8am and 8pm.

Unfortunately we do not have a wheelchair accessible property.


Do you accept different currency? 

We accept both US dollars and local currency, Nicaraguan Cordobas.
