We use fruits and vegetables from our farm when they're in season. One meal a day is vegetarian.

The dormitory is clean and basic. It has electricity, 6 beds, fan, and tile floors. Fresh air flows through the room. Here, we live a simple Nicaraguan campesino lifestyle: we bathe down at the river or take a bucket bath, we drink fresh mineral water, work is done by hand, we use a compost toilet.

There are plenty of activities to do in our humble Nicaraguan village. Or, just relax and take a break from traveling.Take adventure tours with our local guide, learn to cook Nicaraguan food, practice and learn Spanish, swim at nearby waterfalls, learn about permaculture, visit our local beaches on the Pacific Ocean, practice yoga, meditate, read a book in a hammock...

Finca Joco Mico is not difficult to reach and is conveniently located 15 kilometers outside of Diriamba only 1 hour from Managua and Granada. The farm is within reach to the Pacific Ocean beaches for surfing. Buses run to our farm 4 times and day and currently costs 14 cordobas. Mototaxis also run all day from Diriamba and costs 100-150 cordobas.

If you're at the Managua airport, feel free to print out the directions in Spanish at the bottom of this page to give to the driver. Otherwise,

Via Public Transport from Managua:
Get a taxi to the UCA in the center of Managua. Catch a microbus to Jinotepe/Diriamba and get off at the parada (bus stop) in the public market of Diriamba. Ask for the bus to Las Mercedes/El Aguacate. Bus times are 7am, 1 pm, 3 pm, and 5 pm. The last bus on Sunday is usually before noon. Covered moto taxis (like tuk-tuks in India or Thailand) are available for 150-200 cordobas in Diriamba and will go directly to the farm. Ask the bus driver to drop you off in Las Mercedes, which is about 10 km from Diriamba.
The farm is only 5 minutes away by foot once you get off the bus in the center of Las Mercedes. From Las Mercedes, follow the main road straight (south) across a dry streambed, stay to the right, and our farm will be the first entrance on the left with a black gate. Open the gate and come on in! If you have any questions, just ask someone where the gringo or Jasmina lives!

Via car or taxi from Managua:
Go south on the Pan-American Hwy until you come into Diriamba. A few blocks before you see the big clock along the highway, be looking for the green sign on the right side that says Boquita/Casares and turn right onto that road. Go about 1 or 2 km until you get just outside of town and look for a bus stop on the left side.
Turn RIGHT on the road across from the bus stop and go about 4 or 5 km. You'll get to a steep downhill, cross a bridge, and up the incline. At the top of the hill, turn left onto a dirt road and go approx. 5 km past a village called 'Aguacate'. You'll continue past this village and turn left at the first dirt road you get to. That road goes to 'Las Mercedes'- our barrio.
Go straight through the village (only about 1 km), and you'll cross a dry streamed. Come up the hill and we're the first black gate on your left. If you have any questions along the way, you can us at 8566-7049 or 8804-1494, or ask anyone where Jasmina or the gringo lives. Any local will help you out no problem.
