Playa Miramar is a secluded, little fishing village on the west coast of Nicaragua. It is about a 2 hour drive from Managua and about 40 minutes from the old city of Leon. The local community here is extremely friendly and close. It is one of the safest areas to be in Central America. Spend a week here and you will get to know a lot of the local community and surfers, who will happily teach you about the local breaks. If you're looking for an escape and a unique cultural experience, you will not find a better place than Playa Miramar.

Thank you Batman (aka Carlos) - Great story. Thank you for delivering justice where it was needed. However, I think you should have just gone ahead and castrated the guy, there bye doing the world a favor and preventing this guy from procreating and poising the world with his genetics for future generations.

awesome, Carlos - Nothing worse then ex-pat (white guys) who think their locals. all my years in Hawaii ad the only guy to give me a hard time was some 40 year old donkey at Sunset when I was 18. I live iN Puerto Rico now, right on the beach, and will always consider myself a guest here. These jack ass Americans who go to other countries and try to claim it as their own need to get beat regularly. Who acts like that to other surfers? I grew up on Silver Strand Beach in Oxnard, yes, a local, and I never treated anyone like that. It's old donkey tools who can't surf who act like that. There is a place for violence in the water (and on land). It's when kooks (not beginners, KOOKS) don't respect other surfers and don't follow the rules. Good on ya, Carlos. Next time save your money and come to Isabela, PR and get all the sick waves you can handle! PEACE.

Carlos - You're my hero. Funny how people who are not even from there act as if they own the place. Seen it much in Bali.
