Fun fact:
You can rent snorkel equipment, kayaks, and canoes at Ocotal by the entrance of the beach near Father Rooster.There’s also a rope swing on the right side that is a fun little extra. It’s in the trees so unfortunately you can’t jump into the ocean which would be soo cool but it’s still a really fun attraction for the kids.
