Comments : If you have time to spare, you could consider a stop here between Isla El Tigre and Choluteca : the mangrove is nice enough. It is however not worth a special trip !
What to do ? Check the lively market / Spot kitschy statues of a crab or crocodile / Walk toward & beside the mangrove : South-West or South-East from plaza / See fishermen at work / Negotiate hard for a boat's tour around / Play pools or basketball / Go to bed early
What you may not like ? The general dirtiness / The heat & humidity / The lack of good & cheap comedore / The higher cost of food / Not having much to do / The look of some locals : you will probably be the foreigner's weekly attraction
How long ? Half a day is long enough !
Where to stay ? Being off the tourist track, there aren't too many places to stay.
Where to eat ? Unfortunately, the offer for cheap & good food is limited to nothing ! During the day, you can have a good plate of mixed rice for L10 at the market but it closes at 4pm. I though I had found a good option at Lily Burger (N-E of market, Pepsi sign) but the L20 'tipico cenar' proved rather small (it remains the cheapest hygienic deal however). Other options incl. the row of seafood restaurants after the Miramar Hotel or the few (and rather pricey) restaurants near the plaza.
Internet ? Available at Hotel Miramar but, considering the cost, you will wait for Leon in Nicaragua or Tegucigalpa won't you ?
The trip to Choluteca : SSS / L&R / L9 / 40mn
