Tortuga Verde, an Eco Lodge and tropical garden, is situated in a self sufficient micro tropical climate that stays fresh and healthy all year around. Tortuga Verde stands 630 meters above sea level, and is located only one kilometer from the town of Diriamba , and three kilometers from Dolores and Jinotepe. Also is located near the University town of San Marcos , home of the only American accredited University in Nicaragua . These towns were known as “The Golden Triangle,” because of the important qualities and quantities of coffee that was produced during the golden coffee era. Some first quality coffee is still being produced in this area.
All of these towns are great to visit. You can enjoy the culture and peacefulness while walking around, taking a motor taxi, enjoying the tranquility of its parks and admiring the interesting selection of architecture of private homes, churches and public buildings.
