We stayed at El Nido for the weekend. It is located on the beach outside of Leon. Leon is home to approximately 800,000 people and has a great university.
The beach was absolutely beautiful. The water was warm and perfect for swimming although the undercurrent was strong, so we only went in to our waists. We had two lifeguards on duty to make sure all the girls were safe. We had so much fun swimming!!!
The food was truly amazing. The owner- Penita, is a local who owns not only the hotel, but a restaurant in Managua as well as a bakery. She also has her own cooking show – Cocinando con Penita!!!! What a treat to be able to have her cooking for us!!!!
