Simple hillside hotel of wooden cabins overlooking mountains and coffee plantations, with a good restaurant and a commitment to social projects.

The simple Perkin Lenca consists of wooden cabins and bungalows which overlook the rolling green coffee plantations and verdant forests that dominate the area. You can relax on the peaceful porch overlooking the neighbouring mountain range, swing in a hammock or go for walks in the idyllic countryside all around.

Rooms are scattered along the slopes of a steep hill and have a typically rustic decorative style. As should be expected in this off-the-beaten-track region, standards are basic but all the essentials are provided.

There's a good restaurant serving delicious traditional cuisine - prepared with ingredients grown on the hotel grounds - and fantastic coffee. The socially conscious owner also helps to run a local school using the hotel proceeds.
