San Juan del Sur

Set in a crescent-shaped bay, San Juan del Sur has become known as a popular surfing spot and coastal holiday destination for Nicaraguan families and international visitors alike. With its economy now largely focusing on tourism, San Juan del Sur provides a good set of restaurants, bars, shops, and clubs, as well as connections to some of the most scenic and popular areas along the coast. The Victorian houses of the main town look attractive against the backdrop of emerald green hills, but it's really the sun, sea, surf, and sand that bring people on holiday to San Juan del Sur. Take a look at our Nicaragua trip planner to refine the details of your trip to San Juan del Sur.
