Nicaragua Part 2 | Playa Gigante

Just a hike through the hills around Aqua Wellness Resort we found a hidden gem of a spot. Playa Gigante. A large and quiet beach where the surfers like to come out and play when the waves seem appropriate. A few locals fishing on the edge of the rocks, while along the shoreline are rows of colorful hostels and small places to get a casual bite to eat. The paint on them all worn down in a beautiful way. Quite a change from the zen and luxurious calmness of Aqua Wellness Resort just a 20 minute walk away, but still calm in its own, unique way. Where locals and backpackers can be found catching a drink right next to each other and pigs and dogs are free to roam. A little more hippie and grungy, Playa Gigante was the perfect exhibition of laid back surf life. Where the only requirements for a day fulfilled is a good wave and a good catch of fish. But finding a beach like this basically all to yourself is really quite a rare gem! So happy that Thania and I had a day to explore and relax in some hammocks at the top of a cliff for the most epic view of it all. We soaked it all in.
