We showed up to popoyo in slow season, plus the protests were going on so there was almost no one around. Ruamoko was closed due to this, but we emailed the owners and asked if we could stay anyway because of the heat reviews. They (Peter and the volunteer, Tom) had no problem housing, feeding, and hanging with the four of us. Beautiful people, we would definitely go back to popoyo just to stay at ruamoko again.

Went to ruamoko for 6 nights during all the stuff happening in Nicaragua. Didn't feel unsafe the whole time i was in Nica..a lot of people are afraid to travel right now but its between the gov and the people. Loved ruamoko tho...felt very homey everytime i walked back onto the property. Will definitely come back next time in central. Thanks boys!!
