Ok, you have got to understand that there are more pigs and chickens here then humans, so night life and bars and such are on a different level then New York City. There are 3 places I would recommend
1) La Rocca Bar and Grill. The owners are Luke (Canadian) and Margarita (Nicaraguan). They are located behind the Vista Mar Hotel. Everyone knows where Vista Mar is, which will help you find La Rocca. Great international, outdoor environment with new bar and small, very impressive menu. No dancing, but they have music (satellite). You pick.
2) La Sasso Hostel/Bar. AKA, The Gringo Bar. The reason for the name is that the owner, Frankie, has a rather large tatoo on this back shoulders that says, Gringo. So all the locals know him as, The Gringo. Beside that he sicks out like no other gringo...about 6'5". Super nice guy, married to a Nicaraguan who also helps behind the bar. They are located on the beach of Masachapa on the other side of the Masachapa River from the fishing cooperatives. The are right next to a well know restaruant called Ebennezer; as in like, The Scruge.
3)Triangulo Bar. Right smack in the middle of small fishing town, Nicaragua. Can get a little rough after midnight as the alcohol level begins to exceed the blood level in some of the guests. Its safe enough but, just remember that most small towns that mix alcohol with a certain amount of boredom and poverty usually leads to a little fighting. No different then where I grew up in southern Oregon.

My sister and I went to see if we could find a little market or something near our hotel for some souvenirs to bring back... but we couldnt. But once we got down to the beach we found that people would walk up to us with all the stuff we were looking for. So everyone i needed to get gifts for was taken care of.
What to buy: Jewerly, Hammocks, what ever floats your boat.
What to pay: Feel free to haggle a little. But many times the stuff is cheap enough that even slightly inflated you wont feel it. Some people in our group were able to get a large (two person hammock) for 10USD (down from 25USD). 10 is what they were selling them for in the Managua market as well so it ended up being a fair deal.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A few suits for swimming and flip flops (thong shoes), there are alot of snails in the sand near the water edge so unless you have hard feet... you may want to where something on your toes.
Photo Equipment: LOTS OF FILM OR EXTRA MEMORY CARDS! Sunsets are great!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Flash lights (power my be out for hours or you may just want walk late on the beach~ helps in finding your way back). Extra battries. Mosquito nets or spray with lots of deet. we had a waps nest in our room (luckly it was empty so i didnt feel the need to get someone to remove it)
Miscellaneous: Sun Screen ...of course...but really use it. Dont be fooled by the clouds and breeze.
