  • Excellent Nica Vacation

    "I stayed here for over a week with two of my friends. The house has prime location just outside of town to provide for a real Nica experience. House is very comfortable and provides amazing views from inside and from the relaxing bar area up top. The screen in windows allowed us to enjoy the great breeze as well as a view of the bay from the master bed! Harry ensured the house was in great condition prior to our arrival and the care taker, located just behind Mamacitas, took care of the house and was there to provide us with anything needed, including information about what to do in San Juan. Our stay couldnt have been better. The house was very clean, comfortable, and relaxing. I will definetely return to this house!"

  • Excellant Winter Vacation

    "We spent 7 weeks (February 17 – April 4 2013) at Casa Francesca! The property is wonderful, the views perfect, sunsets exceptional! The trade winds where very strong and almost unpleasant at times. Exterior doors and windows, where only screened, because of the trade winds, the interior was constantly dirty. We where disappointed that the wildlife was not around as much as we would have liked, but oh well! This home sleeps 6, but only outside chairs for 2? The open design of the home, also meant that the bedrooms where not totally private. That said these are the only negatives from us. The pool was used everyday, almost all day, it was perfect. We would recommend a massage on the pool deck, as we had several…excellent! The bakery in town is to die for, also the Deli with its American meats and cheese exceptional! A 4 wheel drive is a must, we drove from Managua, with our GPS, problem free. The guards at the gate where always friendly, and it was nice to know that we where protected at all times. Any concerns we had where address promptly. The beach that was a short drive from the house, was beautiful, and had very few people on it. The town of Rivas is about 45 minute drive had a Maxi Pali store that had everything we needed. Laura, our contact in Canada, was ready to answer all the upfront questions, some I’m sure laughable. Gabriela (concierge) was invaluable, always ready with help and reliable information, we can’t say, or thank her enough! She really made our winter brake perfect!"

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.
