I went to Nicaragua and stayed in El Transito at the Green Surf Lodge. El Transito was a charming little place and the waves were amazing and empty. The Green Surf Lodge had great food and a great isolated location. However, on the second night masked and armed bandits slithered onto the property and gagged and bound some of us with duck tape and robbed us with shot guns and machetes. It ruined the trip and most of us went home early. Not cool at all.
