Las Peñitas is situated on the Nicaraguan Pacific coast near Poneloya, about 20 km west of León. It is a small fishing village with a relaxed atmosphere. When I visited, in the middle of the week, the long sandy beach was almost empty. There are a few hotels and restaurants in Las Peñitas, and even an Internet café.
Some tourists come here only on a daytrip from León but I think it was well worth it to stay a few days, to walk on the beach, swim and lay in the hammock reading a good book.
Other things you can do in Las Peñitas are taking a boat tour to Reserva Isla Juan Venado, horseback riding and surfing. The waves are great for surfing, but at some places there are hidden rocks under the surface. And if you swim you should be careful with the undertow, which can be strong. On the beach you can go looking for beautiful shells.
Isla Juan Venado is an 18 km long narrow island along the coast south of Las Peñitas. At some places it is only 300... more travel advice
A taxi within León was 15 cordobas (July 2009) so I took one from the hotel where I was staying to Subtiava Market.... more travel advice
