With its little but refreshing pool in front of the Pacific ocean, El Belga Loco is a little and quiet hostal directly on the beach of Las Peñitas, close to the colonial city of Leon, Nicaragua. Each of the 7 rooms has fans, mosquito nets and a private bathroom equipped with a shower. Rest areas such as couch and tv inside the main building, but also hammocks and lounge chairs on the terrace give you the unique opportunity to relax after surfing or hiking and to cool off after visiting Leon. Drinks and snacks are available all day and breakfast is also possible. El Belga Loco provides you with WIFI throughout the property and free parking. EL Belga Loco is meant to be a "quiet, private and exclusive" place...and for this reason the access is limited to "guests only" and no children aged less than 10.

"for the quietest room, ask for the second floor...."
"There are rooms on the ground floor and rooms on the second level so if stairs are a problem request the lower level."
"I chose the room with the AC but all the rooms appeared well situated."
