About Selah Estrada


Maderas Village

With great intention, we’ve made a home for the modern traveler, for thinkers and doers and all of their interesting associates. In fully recognizing that it’s always the individuals that make an experience, we take great pride in our ability to attract and cultivate a community of characters, of movers and shakers, creative professionals, students, travelers, business savants, entrepreneurs, and everyone else in between.

Here, guests are encouraged to do what feels right – be it relax and unwind, tackle a new project, or simply gain inspiration from the people and world in a new setting. Everything from the furniture in the rooms, to the art on the walls and the music in the air, to the ingredients in the kitchen – all of it has been influenced and shaped by both the natural world around us and the lives of our international travelers.

We’ve tackled the essentials (good people, good food, and WiFi), balancing design, comfort, and simple luxuries to ensure that all you really need to think about is what you really need to think about.

This trip was all about the people, who I ended up loving. Our crew just ran deep and it was an incredible experience. The service here was warm and welcoming from the beginning to the end. The kitchen staff works incredibly hard and they are wonderful characters. Get to know them. From an objective view, Maderas Village is designed well for community-building. There are plenty of communal hang out spots, and the soul of the place starts from the dining area with its giant dinner tables. It's where conversations take place into the early morning. If your focus is wanting a pool or AC, you might have to look elsewhere.

This trip was absolutely amazing. Everything was organized from start to finish and it was so nice to just book my flight and have everything else taken care of. I appreciated that there was a bit of a schedule but also lots of time to do as I pleased. This was a very special week for me and I am very grateful to Trip Tribe and to Mark especially for coordinating it!

Ah-mazing. Gorgeous surroundings, remarkable service, and delightful souls. I will cherish the memories as the most heart-felt adventure I've experienced. (The only teensy drawback for me was the remoteness; I'm finding my taste for *rugged* decreasing as my age increases!)

A magical retreat in the lushness of Nicaragua, complete with butterflies, baby monkeys and dolphins. Seriously. The trip was profoundly beautiful in every way and left me asking for nothing except more time. Our Trip Tribe coordinator, Mark, was outstanding and an absolute stalwart. A pricey endeavor to be sure, but worth every penny.

I had a great time! It really is all about the group. Wonderful people. The meals and accommodations were excellent. The fact that food and booze were included was awesome. The location itself was beautiful, albeit difficult to get to (thank goodness for the transportation). That, however, would be my only "complaint." Overall, an incredible experience. Would definitely book with Trip Tribe again.

The Maderas Village is an incredible place to visit and relax. The staff were very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Wasn't expecting this community to have wifi throughout (awesome).

Sometimes plans change. We get it. That's why Trip Tribe offers a full refund if you meet any of the following criteria: (a) Your trip is over 240 days away OR (b) You booked within the last 30 days and your trip is still over 90 days from the start date. All payments except your deposit are refundable if your trip is more than 180 days away. If you do not meet any of these criteria, your booking is not eligible for a refund.


Trip Tribe requires only a deposit to hold your spot. Your balance will be paid in automatic monthly installments until full payment is due.


Trip Tribe makes it easy for you and your friends to book a room together. All you need is their email address.


While you can always book a private room with your guest, if you select a shared room, you'll be able to request a roommate after you place your booking.


Booking a shared room is cheaper and way more fun than booking your own private room. We’ll be sure to match you with someone awesome.
