Minus points for the costs. Breakfasts cost US$ 5 (for example: Gallo Pinto with eggs, juice and coffee). Dinner and lunches are more expensive, drinks, too.) My advice: Stop on the way to the Finka at a store in Playa Santo Domingo and buy some food and drinks there, it is much cheaper, especially for your lunchbag for the hike to Manderas.
From the Finka you can start a hike on to Maderas and stop inbetween at a Mirador from where you have an incredible view on the lake, the island, the Conception and further. If you think you cannot make it all the way up to the crater lake, stay here and inhale the view - it is just breathtaking!

I plan to go back again after the rainy season starts because it was very dry and dusty when I was there just a few days ago. It is also close enough to walk to the beach, which I wasn't aware of because I arrived when it was dark and didn't see it.
Anyway, I really loved El Porvenir and would recommend it. I paid roughly $30 for 3 nights, meals, and tons of bottles of cold water.

this place is very quiet and peacefully with great views and a very nice garden around the rooms. The people they are working there are also very friendly and the rooms are o.k.!
But the food isn`t worth the price they take for (for example you will get a fruit plate for 3US$ and this "plate" is only a - little - handfull of fruit, half an orange, 6 pieces of banana and a few little pieces of pineapple, at the market you will pay for that less than 6 Cordobas!). So it works with the complete food! After travelling about 2 months in Nicaragua I have to tell that that is the badest price-performance-relation I`ve ever seen in totally Niaragua!
