What mobile devices should we bring for a two week trip to Nicaragua?

My wife and I are going on our honeymoon in Nicaragua.
We both have Verizon LG G2 Android phones, which I would think are much too expensive and flashy to be using in Nicaragua. We realize there is almost no mobile data in Nicaragua, but would like to have a mapping program to use while there and some games to play on the plane. All our hotels have some sort of WiFi. We'll be in Granada and San Juan del Sur.
I had a few scenarios of what to do, and would appreciate input:
1) Leave phones here, buy a cheap Android tablet (Nook HD+ or Nexus 7), and buy burner phones while we're there for $10.
2) Buy two Windows phones (Nokia 520) and use them there. I believe the unlocked phones are around $80 a piece
3) Bring our phones and put in a SIM while there. From what I understand, the Verizon LG G2 is a worldphone and should work.
Any advice is appreciated, as it's the only real confusion I have remaining for this trip.
