Las Peñitas is a small fishing village next to Poneloya on the west coast of the Pacific in Nicaragua only two hours drive from the capital, Managua. Here people are living their traditional life as fishermen and the environment is quiet and nice.
The local fishermen will take you out fishing if you like for a reasonable price.
There are not many tourists yet who have found this quiet and nice place to spend their holidays. You have long empty beaches to walk and surf on and the Mangrove forrest gives you a relaxing and also exiting experience.
The nearest town is Leon, an old colonial city from when the spaniards were here. Only half an hour with the local bus and you are in the middle of a busy university city. León has a lot to offer in the night and during the day.
