Located just minutes west of Leon, Las Penitas is home to the Lazy Turtle. Welcoming hosts, clean and quiet accommodations made our stay very enjoyable. Thanks Val, best of luck and we hope to return soon!
I went here in January 2018 , for 10 days . Not only is it a stunningly beautiful and quiet location with perfect weather , but extremely accommodating from the locals and even more so with Val , the owner of the Lazy Turtle. She arranged the activities, with some amazing and kind locals, that I wanted to experience such are river tours and fishing , as well as all my transportation inquiries. I used the Lazy Turtle as my"base camp" during my adventures and it worked out beautifully . The room was spacious and provided me with everything i needed. the food and cooking staff were great ! The whole experience was so comforting and has warmed my heart to this day . Anyone who wishes to experience Nicaragua , I highly recommend spending some time in the Lazy Turtle and soak up as much of the environment , the people , and all the wonderful aspects of this little piece of paradise.…
Lazy Turtle is one of my favorite places in Las Peñitas! Great food! I had tacos and a burger, everything was cooked to perfection and delicious! Good atmosphere too! I found myself chatting with the owner and some regulars until closing more than once! This place is highly recommended.
This was my destination for my first trip to central America, and it was absolutely amazing. Val and Ryan were so incredibly friendly, and truly made the place feel like home. The food was fantastic, rooms were comfortable, and the people were great. I went with a buddy and we're in our mid 20s, and they were so helpful with making it a great trip. Can't recommend this place highly enough. I will be back!
