  • Our home away from home.

    "There were 5 guys on our yearly outing. Truly amazing place to stay. Will and Vanessa couldn't have been nicer to us. Came to the villa to welcome us, and inform us if we needed anything, not to hesitate to ask. Which we did. They arranged a guide for us and cooks. Everything we needed, they took care of. Lovely place to stay. They made you feel right at home there. I recommend this as a great place to stay in San Juan del Sur."

  • Loved Casa Tranquila

    "We were a group of 10 from Montana that loves the great outdoors so Casa Tranquila was great for us! I highly recommend this house to people. The open air concept is incredible and we enjoyed the jungle noises at night, particularly the howler monkeys in the early morning. We only saw a couple of scorpions and an awesome stick bug, he rocked. We felt completely safe and secure at the house, at the beaches, and in San Juan del Sur. The ocean views from the house are stunning, one afternoon we even even saw whales playing. We thoroughly enjoyed the local beaches, Playa Maderas and Playa Majagual, which didn't have a lot of people at all. One evening we took dinner down to the beach to enjoy the sunset and an evening swim. Fun, fun and a stunning sunset. I highly recommend the zip line canopy tour with Da Flying Frog, they rock! The $20 sunset booze cruise offered by "San Juan del Sur Surf and Sport" was excellent fun, we caught black tuna (kept 2), swam and saw another grand sunset. The house is accurately represented, pics were 100%, it was clean and met our needs very well. It is in the jungle and provides an incredible living experience. The WiFi was reliable if you need. We were there to get away from it all, couldn't tell you about the tv or other tech amenities they offered. Yes, you do need 4-wheel drive, we rented from Dollar Rental in San Juan del Sur and they were reliable vehicles at a reasonable price. Gabby was great! Her recommendations were right on! Thank you so much for an incredible experience! I would go back in a heart beat if the opportunity would present itself!"

  • 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!"

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.
