"Pochomil Beach -- Nicaragua Pacific Coast" Pochomil by ReinaMorena
Pochomil Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 102 photos
Pochomil was the last place we visited on our delegation to Nicaragua this year. Its 2 hours by bus from Managua and just so you know up front, it can be a nerve racking. Mostly because if you dont end up on a first class bus(like the nice coach buses or amtrak stlye buses), you are most likely to be squeezed on to a good old ex LA school bus (repainted of course). That really isnt all that bad (but Im used to it) but it gets annoying and it just seems like its more dangerous(all that weight is going to pop a tire and we are on the side of a mountain for a lot of the ride). By time we got to Pochomil, however we were the only ones left on the bus so we got to spread out before we got off the bus! YEAH! Apparently we must have gone in the off season cause the beach was not over run (which I LOVED) by tourist, native or foreign. Regardless of how you get there (see my tips) Pochomil is a must see! Im sure you'll love the view and waves!
We got to Pochomil Beach, Ran up to our hotel, Checked in and ran down to the beach! We worked to hard to get this far to miss a wonderful sunset. As you can tell.... it was worth the effort. There was a storm off the coast... no where near us but we could see the lighting in the clouds. But this gave our sunset yummy colors and we got a free light show to boot.
Great pics to be taken here,,,as well as great food, and drink!
- Pros:Sol, Arena y Mar. Sand, Sun and Sea! Great seafood too.
- Cons:Nothing that cant be overlooked... worth the trouble.
- In a nutshell:Mango Colored sunsets and Bright stars on the beach at night. Warm seafoam days! Pure delight.
There is always a danger when swimming on the beach. Know your own strength, Dont go out alone , try to stay in the site... more travel advice
It may have the look of a tourist trap but renting an ATV or a horse to take for a spin around the beach wasnt all that... more travel advice
