Nicaragua Gets a New Boutique Hotel

Meson Nadi, an intimate six-suite hotel on Nicaragua’s jungle-fringed Costa Esmeralda is a refreshingly modern departure from the region’s ubiquitous palapa-inspired accommodations. The young Swiss and German owners worked closely with an Austrian architect to create the ecoconscious, modern Bauhaus design. Suites feature garden, ocean, or pool views and are adorned with antique furnishings, local art, and concrete tiles. Guests can dine on healthful, locally sourced food at La Cantina or request that the staff arrange a private barbecue in the garden. The hotel works with a team of local experts who can take guests on excursions ranging from surf safaris to horseback rides on the beach. From $150; Playa Santana, Limon 2, Popoyo; 505/7844-2781;
