We are having a wonderful stay in San Juan del Sur. It’s nice just to relax and do nothing for a few days before heading to Isla de Ometepe for a bit more adventure.
The town of San Juan del Sur itself can be summed up as “little Canada.” It’s a backpackers’ destination complete with a Sunday Funday bar crawl and U.S. dollars in the ATMs.
It may not have a local vibe, but the travel spirit thrives here. Everyone is very friendly, the food is fantastic, and it feels quite safe.
There are more beautiful beaches a short drive away but we wanted to have access to town without a car. So we are staying just outside of town where it’s a bit more quiet but still close enough to walk everywhere.
It’s too windy hang out on the beaches, so for now we are enjoying the breeze and a few cocktails with a lovely view.
