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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Los Ramos and Museum El Ceibo. You'll get in some beach time at La Flor Beach Natural Reserve and Popoyo Beach. On the 29th (Thu), enjoy an adventurous day among the treetops at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa el Coco Vacation Rentals, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, make a trip to Mirador del Cristo de la Misericordia, and have some family-friendly fun at Surf Ranch Skateboard Park.
