How do I get to the Popoyo Beach Houses?

I recommend to go through Rivas, then Tola…Pass in front of Rancho Santana main entrance.

After the village of Limon2 ( But before Las Salinas) turn left ( there’s a Buena Onda sign on the road) and keep going straight until the Pacific Ocean…The houses are located between the Yellow House and Hotel SUYO.

If you’re coming with a taxi you can say, that the houses are 200m north of Buena Onda.

Where can I buy groceries?

Few options:

-Stop by at La Colonia ( Nice Supermarket) in Managua or Masaya or Granada on your way.

-Stop by at Maxi Pali in Rivas on your way ( Supermarket with the basics)

-You can buy locally at Oscar’s in Las Salinas ( You’ll find all the basics)

-Veggies Trucks are coming every days or every 2 days at the gate of the houses ( No time, no schedules you’ll hear their speakers)

-Buy fresh fish or lobsters at the fishermen when you see them coming back from fishing ( Usually in the morning between 9 and 11am)

Other things I should be aware?

-We can have some electricity cut sometimes. It happens and usually power comes back fast.
