My group on 6 (3 couples) stayed at Carmen's house recently and were very happy with it. Edwin, Carmen's son, is the caretaker and he was a great host. Although working with a language barrier (us, bad Spanish; Edwin, bad English) we had very relaxing and exciting stay. The Pochomil rocks are right down the walkway on the beach and are very cool to check out, especially at night. Edwin (and family) escorted us down there one evening. Pochomil is small but has a surf shop and a restaurant where we spent much of a day. Edwin's family prepared us food (that we purchased and brought home) and it was all very good. The stay felt safe and we had a blast. Carmen was incredibly easy to work with and I would recommend her spot to anyone who ventures into the amazing awesomeness of Nicaragua!
