The only beach close to a town that you will find plenty hotels, restaurants, bars, Gelateria, etc is San Juan del Sur, the beach is not the best, there are many other beaches close to it but you will find your self and your family a bit more isolated for some people is ok i do not for you and your family, Another great option will be the city of Leon which is only 20 Minutes away from the beach.

This are some of the rent a car Avaliable at the airport. www.eaai.com.ni/index.php…

We visited Nicaragua in November and the family of a little girl in our son's kindergarten class visited in December. They stayed two weeks in Rancho Santana and loved it. The fueled up on groceries on the way down and then made day trips from there. You might consider that area or the Bahia Gigante area. Good rentals and a great beaches.

Vicki, we love Las Penitas/Poneloya area partly because of its proximity to the city of Leon. Depending on what you are comfortable with, there are many different options on the Pacific Coast from resorts to single family homes you rent. In San Juan del Sur area and Leon area there are houses on VRBO.com, AirBNB.com, etc. Also I know someone who loves to rent at Playa Coco but I don't know if there's a ton going on nearby.

Also, when we took our kids for the first time, we rented a beach house for the same reason as you (versus a hotel or moving around a lot), a way to enjoy Nicaragua with our little kids and have some "stability." Feel free to PM for ideas on traveling to Nicaragua with small kids.
