          I came here for lunch twice during my stay in Las penitas. The food is good (burgers / Mexican), the service better. Great little place to grab a bite, a beer and shoot the breeze with the owner. A solid choice.

          If your looking for food I cannot recommend this place more. If you want an open friendly bar with great conversation, hosts and music there is nowhere to compare. So good we came back 3 times, our home from home. Will be sad to leave.

          Bonjour, est il possible d'organiser le transfert de l'aéroport vers The lazy turtle ? Si oui, quel prix pour ce transfert ? Si non que nous conseillez vous ? (bus via Leon ?) Des conseils sur les activités sur place ? Aide à leur organisation ? Serait il possible d'obtenir des conseils sur des hébergements dans les différentes villes de nos étapes lors de notre périple au travers du Nicaragua ? Merci d'avance pour vos réponses.

          Hi, yes airport transportation is available, we have a private english peaking driver that charges 80 dollars. Getting around in Nicaragua is very easy and we will be happy to help where we can.
