Good question... I like waves if I can play in them but obviously don't want to get sucked out to sea. I'm not a surfer. I'm not opposed to developments but just am looking for a place with a couple bars and a few places to eat more or less. Thanks.

Neither popoyo or maderas are near Leon at all. They are closer to San Juan Del Sur. Both are pretty far from Leon.

The closest to Leon is Las Penitas or Poneloya.

neither are as good for surf as the ones farther south, but are still good.

Others in the day trip region would be Corinto, and maybe the El Transito/El Astillero area.
