Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Based in San Francisco we travelled to Nicaragua to catch some waves after reading about the small town of San Juan del Sur in 2003.
It was reminiscent of villages in Mexico 25 years ago, unaffected, natural, the people warm and friendly. We rented a truck and off we went up and down the coast line of Nicaragua in search of the best waves. We checked out every possible spot for miles but always returned back to the surrounding area of San Juan del Sur.
We finally settled on Balcones de Majagual which afforded us an Architecturally stunning home in a private ecological reserve within walking distance to one of the premier surf beaches Maderas. It's proximity to San Juan located only 20 minutes away gave us the option for a little night life and great restaurants if we so desired. ........We've been here ever since!
