Best beaches in the Caribbean side of Nicaragua??

My husband and I are looking for a clean, beautiful beach for a few days stay in Nicaragua. We would like a place that has reasonably good accommodations and restaurants in the area. We prefer the Caribbean side of the country. Any recommendations? We are planning to go early 2014. Would appreciate feedback and any references for accommodations.

Many thanks.

There's not much to choose from, so your research should go quickly. Especially since you have loads of time.

Corn Islands.

You have to go to Little Corn Island. Book the Casa Iquana or Little Corn Beach Bungalows. Little Corn Beach Bungalows is superb.

Don't patronize Casa Iguana - Both Casa Iguana Hotel and Dive Little Corn were closed a few months back because the American owner didn't pay the employees for several months

Thanks for the update. We will probably give the beaches in Nicaragua a miss. Many accommodations in the remote places, do not offer air conditioning, which is very important to us, when visiting any tropical country. We will most likely spend the time between the colonial cities, Mombacho, Masaya, Laguna de Apoyo, the white washed villages and then Panama. I believe we have enough to do without hitting the beaches.

Thanks everyone for your great input/feedback.
