On all of our past visits to Nicaragua, we were often regulars to Huehuete and the surrounding areas.  Because we went in the rainy season, the road to get to our particular beach was impossible to navigate with our small, cheap rental car.  By cheap, I mean that the front windows of the car were electric while the back two were manual and they shared one handle that had to be removed from one to put the other up or down. Also, the front windshield was completely cracked, and I think in an effort to keep it from shattering, they stuck thick strips of black see-through tape over the top and bottom.  The car worked though, and that's all that mattered.

But I digress.

Instead of the Huehuete, we went to La Boquita, a quaint little resort-ish area.  It was completely empty.  My family has been eating at the restaurant there for years so the owner came out to great us.  Pleasant, friendly guy.  While the they cooked our lobster tails with shrimp, we ventured towards the water.  To keep away mosquitos, the locals burn washed up leaves on the shore.  This in turn, though, creates ash and rubbish that finds its way back to the ocean, making the water dirty. My brother enjoyed it; I did not.  We walked up and down the shore, becoming nostalgic upon seeing the positas, little pools of water created by the barrier rocks perfect for kids.  Was fun to observe and mess around with the various sealife in these areas. =)
