Top five beach villages for surfing, fishing and relaxing, and only an hour from Managua

This comes courtesy of our friends at El Porton Verde, real connoisseurs of Pacific beaches in Nicaragua.

Any of these five would make a fine vacation spot and some are great for surfing and for fishing! Since the capital city is not located directly on the Pacific coast, visitors sometimes overlook the fact that located within easy striking distance of Managua are several beautiful beaches. The five beaches listed below are all located approximately one hour away from the capital city and are just a sampling of the beaches located within an hour or so from MGA, Managua’s Augusto C. Sandino International Airport.

In addition to their all being approximately the same distance, they all share the warm ocean temperatures and beautiful sunsets. Some of these beaches are fantastic for surfing! Others are great for a nice long romantic walks on the beach.

In no particular order they are:

1. Pochomil

2. Masachapa

3. Gran Pacifica

4. Montelimar

5. Super secret (click to read Mike’s post in full and find out)
