We are a family from Cincinnati, Ohio and fell in love with Nicaragua in 2007. We have two small boys and wanted to make Nicaragua a permanent part of their lives growing up. We love Nicaragua for the natural beauty, the cultural immersion and—most of all—the wonderful people.
We chose this house most of all for its great location. It's right on the Pacific Ocean next to the low-tide surf break. It's a 15 min (or less) walk to all of the restaurants and hotels in Las Penitas, yet only a 15 min drive to the historic colonial city of Leon, with its universities, museums, and churches, including UNESCO world heritage sites. Las Penitas is a quaint fishing village where you can watch local families catch their dinner—and yours. On the weekend, you will see local holidaymakers from the city of Leon. During the week, you will have the beach to yourself (but restaurants remain open).
