  • Beautiful people that is all I can say!

    "Well I just don't know what to say other than thank you to all the wonderful people at Escameca Ecolodge. We were blown away by the amazing peacefulness and the priceless view. Being able to hear those crashing waves on the beach breaking the tranquil silence of the serene location was something wonderful. But the most spectacular part of the stay was the people who run and take care of the place. From Gonzalo, Grace and Donald to the owner Tyson and even the German girl and her husband who lived nearby. They all really came to my aid when my wife became deathly ill from a place we ate at in Panama City a few days earlier. We wished we could have stayed the whole time at this place but my wife's condition deteriorated so badly that we had to be transported to the local clinic for her to receive treatment. The staff at the Ecolodge helped me carry my wife to the car and the German family contributed their expertise in these situations and recommended I get my wife to a hospital quickly. I mean all of the people including Tyson the owner just dropped what they were doing to hang with me the whole day and help me with getting everything I needed for my wife. It was just fabulous and I just want to say that you all are wonderful human beings. If you want to stay somewhere that is truly breathtaking and you know that the people will be right there for you I suggest you stay here."

  • Epic Ocean Views !!

    "My wife and I spent a week with Chuck and Rosa at the Hacienda Pura Vista. The house is exactly as advertised. Clean, quiet, comfortable and completely "tranquillo". Excellent ocean views, close proximity to town and several of the best beaches in the area. The owner, Chuck is an excellent resource for all your vacation plans. Every recommendation he made was better than expected and his local knowledge is priceless. Cannot forget about Chuck's fury little buddy, "Lefty", what a ham ! We rented Chuck's Isuzu for the week and once again, "Chuck, sorry for the shredded tire". We will make it up to you when we return. Look forward to seeing the both of you here shortly as we have already made plans to spend a few more days at the Hacienda Pura Vista."

  • Great place

    "Went with 9 guys for a weekend getaway. Staff was very accommodating. Place is big and beautiful. Need a car to get into town as it's about a 10 min drive away. But the villa is kept up nicely and a great view of the bay. We had a chef who was great and had prearranged all the groceries. All in all a good place. They charge an extra 5% for using a credit card so bring cash. And the cash needs to be good quality (they reject bills with any tears). The live on property caretaker was a nice guy and he did a good job. No one on staff speaks any English so ensure to speak Spanish or have a good dictionary."

San Juan Del Sur Travel Tips

Visitors to San Juan del Sur Vacation Rentals

San Juan del Sur is situated on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast. As a seaside resort town, it is one of the country’s most popular vacation destinations. Surfers from around the world come to ride San Juan del Sur’s beach breaks. Scuba divers are also drawn to the area’s amazing underwater treasures. If you are looking for a great beach vibe with beautiful natural surroundings then this is the destination for you. By day, you can explore or laze on the tropical paradise beaches and at night, enjoy the pulse of the salsa rhythms at the local night spots.

Legendary Style and Hospitality at San Juan del Sur Villas

Imagine glass doors that fold back onto a wide deck overlooking the bay, lush tropical gardens where parrots and monkeys watch you from their perches, or lazy days reading a good book in a hammock as you sip on a tropical cocktail. This is the life that you can experience at the luxurious villas in San Juan del Sur. Private, spacious and tastefully furnished, you can feel like you have your own slice of paradise. The warm local hospitality is evident is the small touches and finishes that will make you feel right at home. Many of the rental homes are located on the beachfront, meaning that it’s just a few steps until you have soft white sand squishing between your toes. For some villas, you will not even need to have a car as they are located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and beaches.

Discover Nicaragua’s Treasures from San Juan Del dur Oceanfront Rentals

One of the great advantages of staying in an oceanfront villa is that you can check out the ocean swell and wind direction from your deck as you sip your morning coffee. Decide on the day’s activities as you go along, with no rush or specific travel agenda.

Join a sailing cruise and explore the coastline from the ocean side. Enjoy a leisurely snorkel on the reefs when you drop anchor or relax on the deck and soak up the sun. Scuba diving excursions can be easily arranged and cater for all levels of divers. Several dive schools in the area can offer certification courses if you plan to stay a while.

For a fun day out, go on a tree-top canopy tour in the rainforest. Zip lines will take you from platform to platform and you can get to experience the forest from a bird’s-eye view. It’s a thrilling experience and sure to be a highlight of your vacation.

Horseback riding excursions are also popular. You can explore the foothills and valley behind San Juan del Sur on well trained cattle ponies. Accompanied by local cowboys, you can gain some insight into the lifestyle on a local ranch.

San Juan del Sur is growing in popularity as a sport fishing destination. Marlin, sailfish and tuna are regularly hooked in the waters off the coast. Dedicated game fishing charters are available with experienced skippers that’ll take you to the best fishing spots of the area.

Shopping in San Juan del Sur is a great experience. Bargain for fresh produce or crafts at the local markets or visit some of the downtown stores for fashion items. Restaurants and cafés serve tasty local and international cuisine and the warm hospitality will have you smiling in no time.

Seasons in San Juan del Sur

Because of its tropical location, it’s difficult to differentiate between summer and winter in Nicaragua. Rather, the seasons are characterized by the rainfall. The wet months are from May to November and if traveling anywhere overland during this period it’s advised to have a 4x4. Rain storms are short but occur almost daily and the vegetation is lush and green. It is during this season that the surfing conditions are at their optimum as the southern swells ride up the coast. The dry season is from December to April, during which temperatures are hot and it can get quite windy.
