Pacific Beach Town Recommendation

We will be traveling from Leon to Ometepe and would like to break the travel up by staying for 2 nights at a beach town somewhere between Leon & Ometepe.

Puerto Sandino, El Velero, El Transito, Pochomil, or others? Any recommendations would be great. We are looking for a laid back place to relax on the beach and get some surfing in.

Thank you,

Greetings redmamber: for surfing, El Transito is okay, especially on smaller days. Pochomil can have a good beach break but is not a real chill in that there are a lot of vendors on the beach (but better facilities). The best and most varied surf for those you mentioned is Miramar near Puerto Sandino. Beach break, reef break, and excellent sand/rock point break. If you go, tell Pablo at Miramar Surf Camp that I recommended your visit!

U heard Gigante was nice, but never made it there from Rivas or SJDS.
