Our casita, the Mango Moon, was very nice. The staff moved in an extra bed to accommodate the four of us. The kids loved the outdoor bathroom....

It would have been neat to find out where the hiking trails are around the lake and do some bird watching. Or go touring in the kayaks all the way around the lake early in the morning or late evening. (San Simian provides the kayaks at no charge to their guests.) Mostly, it was great just to hang out and relax as we had been on the go since we arrived in-country three days earlier.
We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and left on a Sunday afternoon, which was plenty of time to spend here. It was pretty busy, and I don't know if it's because it was the weekend or just the time of year in general (first week of April). We really liked San Simian Lodge and I would recommend it.
A big score was that we saw monkeys right outside of San Simian Lodge as we were taking a taxi back to Managua for our flight out to Big Corn Island.
