About Our Ecolodge
High above the worries of the world in the mountains of Nicaragua a special place awaits you. It is a forest in the clouds called Selva Negra.
Shielded from clamor of modern life by cool highland mists and pure mountain air, the life of the cloud forest unfolds before you as it has done for immeasurable millennia.
The beating heart of the cloud forest is a treasure chest of species and resources that have fed, clothed, sheltered and enriched the people of Nicaragua's mountains for more than fifteen centuries. In turn, the peoples of the mountains used the gifts of the cloud forest wisely, taking care to nurture and guard the permanence of its intricate, frail, interdependent ecosystems.
Towering trees as high as skyscrapers that began life as seedlings when George Washington was an infant ... exotic and elusive bird species ... jaw-dropping vistas of fog-shrouded mountains and valleys... fragile, rare orchids ... the haunting cry of howler monkeys calling to one another... the exquisite splendor of delicate rainforest flowers and vines ... all of them await you in the peace and stillness of Selva Negra's vast nature reserve.
At the base of the cloud forest lies a resort, where hot showers, fluffy towels, crisply-laundered sheets, hearty mountain fare and fine wines await you after a day of hiking and birding in the cloud forest. Surrounding the resort is an organic farm and plantation that produces one of the most celebrated coffees in the world, and a rich abundance of pure food.
Selva Negra -- an eco-resort, nature reserve, fine-dining restaurant, coffee plantation, organic farm, scientific research station, wedding chapel and conference center, nestled in the mountains of Nicaragua and united by a philosophy of living in harmony with nature.Prepare to be amazed. Prepare to be delighted. Selva Negra is waiting for you.
