Welcome to Los Chiles


In the 1980s, American-trained Contras were a presence in town as part of the United States' subversive military actions against Nicaragua's Sandinista government.

With the opening of the new border crossing at Las Tablillas, travelers to and from Nicaragua are no longer obligated to pass through Los Chiles, but it remains an enjoyable water route to Caño Negro.
