This is the hub for exploration of Nicaragua's toned-and-tanned southern Pacific beaches. And while the once sleepy fishing village doesn't have an amazing beach – you need to head either 30 minutes north or south for that – it does have the best restaurants and nightlife around. The town itself, with its clapboard Victorian houses and steady influx of young and beautiful international travelers and scenesters, is quite fun. The half-moon brown-sugar beach provides splendid sunset views. Top it all off with a towering statue of Christ on a neighboring hillside and you have all the workings to kick off an amazing adventure in paradise.
