San Juan Del Sur



Located near the border with Costa Rica, San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua, is a fishing village on the Pacific that has become a seaside resort. Located 60 mi/95 km south of Managua, San Juan Del Sur offers beaches, rocky vistas and seaside restaurants. Surfing is possible, though the waves are rather small. If you visit, take mosquito repellent.

The nearby nature reserves at Chacocente and La Flor are used by sea turtles, who go ashore to lay their eggs.

Morgan's Rock Hacienda & Ecolodge, a few miles/kilometers north of San Juan del Sur, is a deluxe boutique beach resort. Overlooking a magnificent bay, the resort offers many packages and activities, including biking and horseback riding on trails that lead through a forest restoration project. There is also spectacular birding and animal sightings.
