We are a group of young backpackers who started travelling around Central america with the dream to open a hostel on Nicaragua's Pacific coast. Our dream came true: Caracolito hostel is situated in a little fisher's’ village, Las Peñitas,  among flourishing nature and large, untouched beaches, whose high waves are much appreciated by surfers. Just close by is the Juan Venado Island, a natural reserve home to mangroves where giant turtles go nesting. Our hostel is located in an old colonial house, where you can choose between a dorm or a beautiful private room with own bathroom. You can use the shared kitchen to cook your own food or choose among our freshly made breakfast offers, from eggs, toast and bacon to granola with fresh fruits.Twenty minutes from our village you find Leon, a beautiful colonial university city, capital of the Nicaraguan revolution and                                                                                                                       cultural center. Leon is also the door to the volcanic chain                                                                                                                     Los Maribios,
