Pavones Review

Oh man, where to even start.. Pavones is absolute paradise, especially if you love to surf or think naked babies running around town is the cutest thing ever. Which I do. We spent two weeks here and every day I would rave about how much I loved being here. I could have stayed for ever (which some travelers end up doing) if we didn’t have a friend meeting us in Nicaragu

We have already decided Pavones is pretty much the best place on Earth so here is a little review in case you ever find yourself down thata way.


Caza Olas – I can’t say enough for this hotel and hostel. It is charming and feels like a grownup treehouse. There are rooms and prices for every style and budget with a variety of dorms, doubles with and without A/C and private bathrooms. We chose a double room without A/C or bathroom and paid about $16/night after making a deal for an extended stay. There is an outdoor community kitchen where everyone cooked together and hungout. The bathrooms are very, very clean which is a major perk for me. The family that runs the place is so stinkin’ sweet and you will fall in love with the kiddos – guaranteed. Oh and it is a very short walk to the beach and grocery store.

Eat & Drink:

La MantaWe cooked most nights but if you are looking for a great meal for less than $10 a plate this place is the bomb. We celebrated our 6 month anniversary here and it was delicious. And it wasn’t gallo pinto, thank god. There is a daily happy hour which you would be stupid to pass up. Deliciously strong $2 margaritas and $1 beers will definitely spark up any evening plans. They play the day’s surf highlight reel and surf movies all night.

 Dora’s by the soccer field – great food, great vibe, affordable prices, a pet toucan and good people. What more can I say?



Home of the second longest left breaking wave in the world but be prepared for mostly lefts with the occasional backdoor . Definitely the place to perfect your left and a goofy footers dream wave. Point break with waves that go forever it seems, although the swell isn’t always dependable.
