With miles of undeveloped beaches and uncrowded surf breaks, El Transito offers an authentic Nicaraguan experience. We offer accommodations, spanish classes and other tourist services.

El Transito offers both beach and point breaks, uncrowded beaches, a thriving fishing industry and a handful of restaurants and bars.  This is the Nicaragua you’ve dreamed about.


There are very few accommodations in El Transito, but if you are interested in visiting we would love to host you!

ETCA has 3 guests rooms – each with a private bath, located just 1 block from the beach.  The rooms are located on the same property as our Women’s Co-Op and Community Library, so you will be fully immersed in the daily happenings of the El Transito Community.

If you would like to book a room please send us an email with the dates, # of beds and guests:


You can also call us (Spanish only) at 8934-0609 (Claro) or just show up at the front gates of ETCA (located across the road from the school) and ask for Elizabeht.  She will let you know if we have availability and show you around ETCA.
