Cloud Farm

Private Jungle Villa 1,200 feet above San Juan del Sur

Exhale... You're here.

Step inside the magical villa at the Cloud Farm, set on 500 tropical acres of private reserve. Welcoming rooms open onto an infinity pool 1,200 feet above the bay. At this relaxing open-air hideaway, the jungle setting stays relatively cooler (and quieter) than in town, meaning you can pleasantly kick back and sway away your cares between surf sessions. Be prepared to see monkeys, sloths, and bugs! Wildlife and insects are a natural part of life in the jungle. The lush grounds are also home to organic gardens and farmland where most of the ingredients for your meals are grown onsite. So, what are you waiting for? The door’s open.

Invest in Yourself

San Juan del Sur

The Cloud Farm is tucked in the hills above San Juan del Sur, the charming little surf town on the southern Pacific Coast of Nicaragua, only 30 minutes from the border with Costa Rica. This is “the place” to get away from it all, within 500 acres of indigenous forest and farmland. Most of our food is organically grown onsite; Fruit, vegetables, coffee, eggs, milk—you name it, we grow it (or squeeze it). Explore the jungle on horseback or milk the cows at the crack of dawn. Or, simply follow status quo, ditch the shoes, and lounge by the pool between surfing, massages, and yoga. Don’t worry, we called your work and they said to save you a spot.

“It’s okay to be scared.

Being scared means you’re about to do
something really, really brave.”
