We did not intend on coming to the town of Casares. Our group was headed to San Juan del Sur when we instead tried something first along the way from Managua. The hotel owner was friendly, helpful in advising us on the local areas and we spent time surfing on a beach that is also home to many Tortuga sightings. Food was great, rooms extremely affordable and we felt that it was strange more people did not come to the town. Highly recommended for the backpacker, surfer, or even fishermen as there were plenty of locals who owned and operated ... fishing excursions each day. In fact, most of what we ate came directly from the town or from the morning boats, not what we were expecting, but the food was excellent. Definitely one of our favorite places discovered while trekking through Nica. read hotel review

Boutique beach hotel, incredible artwork, fishing archived

13 basic rooms with tiled bathrooms, balconies either facing the Pacific (on the beach) or facing the village (shade). Clean. A huge inspiring great room is filled with incredible artwork by contemporary Nica artists and it was hands-down the most relaxing place that we visited on our month-long trip. Breakfast is not included, but for $35 / night with AC we weren't really expecting that anyways. The clientele were well-to-do Nicas, expats, and random travelers and tourists from Canada, the US, and Europe. read hotel review

    Tiled bathroom, shower, wash basin, toilet. Two pieces of original art. AC. Balcony. Fantastic views! The beds are basic, but comfortable.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    The restaurant is great. $4 breakfasts. Grilled fish about $7; lobster $15. Also chicken and steak dishes. The pasta dishes were a nice break from standard Nica-fare.

    The service is great, but most of the staff speak Spanish only. The owner, who lives there, is French and he can help with anything that comes up.

    There's no pool, but the Pacific Ocean washes up right outside the balustrade. Pool table and slot machines.

    Casares is an authentic fishing village so don't expect a manicured fake tourist town or you'll be disappointed. If you're looking for a classy place to relax and feel at peace with real Nicaragua on the beach right in front of you, it's worth coming. There's a beautiful waterfall and nature preserve a few kilometer inland, and the tropical dry forest in the surrounding hills make for some great horseback riding. We went out fishing with one of the local fishermen and caught some great tuna, mackerel, and white fish. The surf is fantastic around there as well (you can rent boards in neighboring La Boquita).
