It is located on the Pacific coast 26 kilometers from San Juan del Sur, municipality of Rivas and 167 kilometers from Managua, the capital of Nicaragua.
The beach El Ostional is of soft sand, is wide and imposing and is full of beautiful rocks.
Its name comes from the great amount of oysters that were in the zone at the time of its discovery, which produced the greed of the settlers and annihilated to the town that inhabited this zone.
This is a little known and visited beach, so it remains almost virgin, this condition turns it into a quiet beach that, despite its beauty does not count on its coasts with resources to make major tourist investments.
However in the site there are the conditions to enjoy a spectacular beach day; We offer tours of the community to go fishing, whale watching, dolphins and turtles or visit nearby beaches and surf.
Kayaking, horse riding, hiking and boat trips are the most attractive options. From San Juan there is a one hour bus at 5:30, 7:00, 12:00 and 15:20.
