Playa Madera goes by many names.
|Playa Playones is usually called Playa Madera or Playa Maderas|
It is called both Playa Madera and Playa Maderas. My Nica neighbors say it has always been called Playa Madera, but most of the websites and recent signs call it Playa Maderas.
|The beach here is the real Playa Madera|
To further add to the confusion the beach where all the shuttles and taxi goes is really Playa Playones.
|Playa Madera in the dry season|
|Playa Playones is where all the shuttles and taxis take you when going to Playa Maderas|
These two beaches are only split by a slender band of rock
|Playa Majagual is just north of Playa Madera|
Whatever you call them they are a spectacular series of beaches in the southwest corner of Nicaragua. They are located just 15 minutes north of San Juan del Sur.
