For our first trip, my husband and I took our staff on an overnight stay at the all-inclusive Barcelo Hotel at Playa Montelimar, west of Managua. The property sits on the old Somoza residence. The house is now a casino and dining hall when the tourists are light. The gils sent all their time in the pool; I preferred to hang out in a hammock with a book along the shore at the north end of the property, far removed from any other human. I didn't want to leave. I returned with my staff and friends in October 2010 and we had an even better time!
