Iguana Bar in San Juan del Sur? haha just kidding...

On most any beach you will see pigs, goats, horses and cows wandering about...

Since you likely refer to wild animals; most of the more forested beach areas like Maderas/Marsella near SJdS, Pie de Gigante in Tola, Rivas, Chacocente near El Astillero, and south of SJdS like Playa Coco and Ostional all have monkey and sea turtle possibilities, depending on time of year and other local factors.
