Chillin’ in Little Canada

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.

We're not twenty-something backpackers taking a trek around the world (anymore). We work full time and spend every spare dollar and minute on our wanderlust. We live to travel. Exploring new cultures, meeting people from around the world, sharing food, drink and music—all this reminds us that we are one tribe. We write how-to tips to help you have a smooth journey as well as our inner thoughts on new places we explore. Let us know what you think!
