  Alpine Club of Himalaya is a trekking and tour company that provides a vast array of trekking trips, climbing expeditions, city tours , jungle adventures and more in Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and India.  They have over 20 years of experience and offer over 100 holiday packages personalized to your needs.  Additionally, they have competitive prices, and a team of well trained, experienced English speaking guides. They offer the popular Everest and Annapurna Base Camp treks, Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, and many others. 
Last November Benton Hot Springs' owners Bill and Diane hiked with Alpine Club of Himalaya.   Owner Sujan Lamichhane provided complete airport pickup, hotel accommodations, and guiding services for our five day trek of Poonhill Ghorepani and four days sight seeing around Nepal. It was truly a once in a life-time adventure with an outstanding company and guides.  We highly recommend using this company.  You can contact them at:

Owners Bill and Diane restored a 1960s beach house in 2007 near Casares and La Boquita, Nicaragua.  After traveling through many Central America countries they selected Nicaragua because it is still authentic and not overrun by foreigners.  And, contrary to most American's beliefs, Nicaragua is one of the safest countries in Central, South, and even North America. 
If you are ready for an amazing Central America adventure consider renting our nearly 4,000 sq. ft. house (6 bedroom, 7 bathrooms, 2000 sq.ft deck, and 800 sqft dining room/kitchen).   But our favorite place to relax during the day is under a large Rancho only steps from the beach and ocean.  The beach is essentially private, as there is no public access within 1/2 miles each direction on the beach.  Our full time caretakers provide daily cleaning, security, and facilities maintenance.  For a nominal cost, they are available to cook your meals.  Of course, there are many resturants on the beach at La Boquita or Casares.  Casares is a local-very authentic-fishing village where fresh fish can be purchased daily.  
Fishing, cycling, sightseeing, and hiking are available in the local area.  The towns of Granada, San Juan del Sur, and Masaya are attractive and fun destinations for day visits, as are active volcanoes and fresh water lakes.
For a week visit you can rent our house for $1,000.00-$2,000.00 depending on the number of guests. There is a maximum of 8 guests allowed. For longer stays the rate is negotiable.  To reserve, we require a 50% non refundable deposit.    However, we do not charge a cleaning deposit or any other hidden fees.  We can arrange a cook, driver, and transportation as well as cycling, fishing, or many other activities for additional costs that go directly to the local vendors.
