Recent San Juan Del Sur property reviews

  • "Our great adventure started at the airport with Marcelino greeting us with a smile. After managing to get the luggage of all 6 of us either in or on top of the car, we started on the long 2 hr. drive to the farm. Once inside the farm gate, Marcelino stopped the car and it was with awe and excitement that we looked at the fantastic sweeping view of San Juan Del Sur from a high point in the road. Marcelino drove us everywhere we wanted, suggested several places and gave us an insight that only a local could. Juan Pablo and Julio took excellent care of us at the house with a grace and warmth that made us feel right at home. Adaluz cooked meals that a five star restaurant would serve, and no two meals were the same!! Several times Chris would show up with little Mia in his arms to make sure that we had everything we wanted or needed. Each time we went out sight seeing,we couldn't wait to get home to Case Buena Vista.... we soon learned that was our paradise. In my 'mind's eye' I can still see the town stretching below us as I either laid in the hammock or on a floaty in the infinity pool. Amazing how many stars there were at night, even with the full moon. The Howler monkeys entertained us with their agility to swing from tree to tree and seeing the sloth on the ground was phenomenal!! We even got pictures of Becky and Suzanne petting it. All the people we met on the farm...from 'colonel Jose' the colorful, whistle blowing guard at the gate; the guys who took us on a horse back trip explaining the different fruit trees in limited English; Marcelino who never tired of answering our many questions; Julio and Juan Pablo who met our every need with a smile and a "no problem'; and dear Adaluz who watched over us..made our stay one that will be in our hearts and minds forever. Hopefully we will manage to come back and stay with our friends at Finca Las Nubas. Thank you for enriching our lives."

  • Tortuga Azul

    "My wife and I spent 10 days here in June and had a wonderful time. The views, pool, caretaker and house accommodations were excellent. The proximity to town as well as the local beaches really make this a great central location to stay in San Juan del Sur. The full kitchen also made cooking your meals easy if you didn't want to eat out at the many local restaurants in town. The house is located perched on a slight grade with an excellent view of the Playa Nacascolo for beautiful sunsets and views during the day. The airflow was amazing being near a tree filled ravine which were full of tropical birds for viewing. We didn't have the run the air conditioner during our entire stay.The pool was also well designed with a shallow end for the kids as well as deeper end for the adults. We hated to leave and are already making plans to return in January 2015."

  • Nice Stay

    "My whole family rented two houses. the houses are nice and clean, but we missed some details in the houses, especially in the kitchen - for example - how to cook pasta without sieve, how to wash the dishes without a dish towel, how to clean the house without a broom. just small things, but very helpful - i would recommend to invest small money for this small things! the staff was very nice, helpful and very friendly, the shuttle was working perfect. the restaurant offers good food, the prices are fair and the chocolate cake is unbelievable, my wife would like to return just because of this cake ;-). the cocktails during the sunset were also good and the views gergious! we will definatly return and hope that the kitchenequipment is then better then now. thank you for a nice stay!"

  • Excellent stay in San Juan Del Sur

    "This house was great - we were all very pleased with our choice to stay here. The large airy rooms, pool, quirky-cool character, and on-site housekeeping were huge bonuses that exceeded our expectations going in. The house really is a couple of blocks off the beach and we were glad for that as it buffered us from the noise of the beachfront avenue. While the beach in SJDS was nice, the real gems are out of town. Remonso and Maderas were our favorite beaches although we didn't try Hermosa - it was closed because "Survivor" was being filmed there during our stay! The pool was perfect for our two young children and was impeccably maintained by Luis and his wife. Luis and Darlen were a wonderful addition to our experience at this house, as they looked out for our every need and were available around the clock. We weren’t sure how it would be to have staff share the grounds with us, but it ended up being an enriching experience. We took them up on their offer to cook for us on several occasions and were very pleased. Two highlights were a seafood feast of shrimp and lobster, and a traditional Nica meal including gallo pinto (fried beans and rice), maduros (cooked, soft bananas) and home-made tortillas. Better than the restaurants in town! We had a group of 8 and had more than enough room for us to spread out. We did have a rental car and it was convenient to have, although not absolutely necessary as there are shuttles heading out to the various beaches. Overall, I give this VRBO house my highest recommendation."

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.
