Nicaragua Teal and Dove Hunting
Hotel Farallones & Portales
Barely a two hour flight from Miami, and you are smack in the middle of some of the best teal hunting in the world. In our efforts to always improve our programs, we have recently upgraded to the newly opened Hotel Farallones, where all shooters will enjoy the luxury of single room accommodations.
The Nicaragua teal hunting trip starts upon arrival in to Managua, Nicaragua. Groups are met at the airport by your hosts, Marvin & Richard Townsend, or by a member of their staff, and taken by air-conditioned vans straight to the newly constructed Hotel Farallones or Portales in Chinandega. The drive is about two hours, on paved highway. The following three days are full hunting days. We will shoot both morning and afternoon, returning to the hotel for lunch and a siesta in the middle of the day. We’ll usually hunt ducks in the mornings and dove in the afternoons, depending on game concentration and time of year. We can also customize your trip to include as many ducks hunts as you wish, priced accordingly.
Imagine sitting comfortably in a lush, tropical lagoon as the Papagayo winds are gently tugging at your back, when a flock of teal come zipping into your decoys against the back drop of a smoking volcano. This scene is played out every day from October-March in Nicaragua, home to one the largest concentrations of wintering blue winged teal in Central America. Literally thousands and thousands of these fast flying ducks call Nicaragua home through mid March, or as long as the water holds. Add in some challenging white winged and mourning doves, and you have the makings of a nice mixed bag hunt in warm tropical climates. You will also have the opportunity to take pintails, spoonbills, widgeons and Pichiguilas (Fulvous tree duck).
The Hotel Farallones features single room accommodations with hot water, AC, cable TV, WiFi, and a large swimming pool with outdoor BBQ setting. Meals and drinks will be taken in the restaurant and lounge.
For those who follow our field journals through the year, you know that May ushers in our various dove Bolivia programs as well as the mixed bag programs in Argentina and Uruguay, in addition to the Pigeon program in Paraguay. So, quite a bit on our collective plates here...
