Various questions - Lodging/What to do, etc.

My family and I are going to Nicaragua for a month at the end of the year. I'm thinking of renting a house either in Managua or Carazo, as we'll probably be doing a lot of sightseeing (Granada, Leon, etc), but with two boys ages 6 and 12, we'll probably will have to hit the beaches as well. Our budget is not high, so I'm looking at something affordable. Any suggestions? I also want to visit Esteli and Somoto, but I'm thinking only for a couple of days (not many beaches there).

Here's some suggestions:


Moon and Footprint are the best guidebooks!

Best areas to rent in Managua are Altos de Santa Domingo and Las Colinas, 3 bed house will cost about USD2,000 a month. Probably a bit more as 1 month rentals aren't common here!

If you have a car, you could rent on the Carratera Mssaya, between Managua and Masaya for less!

There are beaches like Las Penitas close to Leon and from Granada, Ometepe has beaches!
