About this listing
Simple airy two bedroom that easily sleeps six.
Located right on the beach in the small fishing village of El Gigante, this is close to both the restaurants and shops of town and great access to surf. It's just on the outskirts of town, the last house on the beach. The,sometimes monkey filled, trees, shade the house and make it nice and cool in the afternoons. What really makes this a neat place to stay is you have easy access to various restaurants a few shops and great surf. You won't find that at any place in the area even at the tall dollar places your basically stuck inside this gated Gringo Community. Playa Gigante has real charm and real Nicaraguan culture. Surf is a couple hundred yard walk to the north along Amarillo beach ( the most beautiful beach in Nicaragua) and walking a leisurely 30 min you pass two other breaks, one of which is Slackers ,a high tide beauty, on your way to Playa Colarado and Panga Drops. The beach right in town is protected by the Giant's Foot that sticks out into the Pacific and there a calm waters for swimming in the centre of the bay. In front of our place most of the local surfers rode their first waves. It's a sweet little wave and it's never crowded.
Meet the fishermen right on the beach and buy fresh fish and lobsters.
Fruit and veggie truck arrives daily
Close walk to four surf spots, five restaurants and two grocery stores.
A little town with lots to offer
This house can sleep eight but if your bigger group, we also rent out other rooms on the same property.
Nothing quite like waking up right on the beach. You sleep to the sound of surf and wake to the sound of Howler Monkeys in the trees
We are off the path well traveled. Your going to have to take a cab from Rivas or we can arrange to have your flight met. Gigante just got it's first bus that connects it to Rivas twice a day. There is a local truck that take the local kids to school in Tola. It is a ride in to the closest town of any size and is for the seasoned budget traveler or those searching for cultural experiences.
