Monty's Beach Resort

I have a penchant for seriously off-the-beaten path locations. Not only do I want to go to Nicaragua, but I want to go to the most remote places in the country. Way up north is a little beach village called Jiquilillo. This village is home to maybe a few hundred people. It's also home to Monty's Beach Resort, which I stumbled across on Trip Advisor. Monty's is a beach lodge with a big heart - they have all sorts of volunteer options in local communities, from soup kitchens to turtle rescue. It's a quick 2 hour drive from Leon to Jiquilillo. We head north and soon find ourselves on a long, straight dirt road headed due west. We drive through the village and start to wonder if we'll ever find Monty's and then we see a sign and head to the left. We can see the ocean and we drive down the dirt path and then we see Monty's. Cabanas on the beach with people drinking cervezas underneath thatched-roofs, kids playing soccer on the beach ... this is what I had in mind. We get settled into our cabana and get situated with a few beers and start to chat with the other guests. We meet a guy who invites us to release turtle hatchlings the next day, we walk down the beach, chat with Monty and get ready to learn the art of surfing. There are probably 10 people staying at the lodge and we are the only gringos for 100 miles. THIS is what I'm looking for when I travel.
