Recent Nicaragua reviews

  • True Sanctuary

    "We have been to Nicaragua on several occasions. Since 2010 we have had various family members, relatives and friends stay multiple times at Casa Sonrisas. This desired destination keeps offering more each time, and the home owner has really perfected the quality of service she provides to her guests. Most recently I was in Granada in February of 2014 with a group of 5 visitors. This was my second stay at Casa Sonrisas and my expectations once again were exceeded. Upon arriving we settled in very quickly, Casa Sonrisas has a way of making one feel as if you've come home again. This elegant colonial home is charming and extremely spacious. The rooms are clean and furnished with tasteful, unique pieces and comfortable beds. There is a fantastic collection of fascinating original art throughout the home. The bathrooms are well maintained, clean with hot/cold showers. The kitchen is very well equipped and a favorite gathering place. We enjoyed typical Nicaraguan meals prepared by the very courteous housekeeper Carmen. She is very friendly and also does a fantastic job keeping the home clean and tidy. The location of this home is excellent, majestically nestled in a corner and conveniently within a short walking distance to the main square and "La Calzada", offering the opportunity to experience local arts and culture, delicious eats, people and the best of what Nicaragua has to offer. Every Friday-Sunday night staring at 6pm a street food kiosk sets up opposite corner of the home, be sure to try the tacos, to experience Nicaraguan street food at its best! The pool is alluring, especially after a fun filled day taking in the sites in Granada. The owner is extremely helpful, professional and accommodating from the very start. She is very accessible and responds promptly to inquiries. We fully anticipate returning to this home and highly recommend this experience to travelers. Go ahead book your time Casa Sonrisas, you will come back time and time again!"

  • Unbelievable

    "This trip was absolutely fantastic. Robert set us up with a fantastic driver Yasmil who became a good friend. The condo was everything we hoped it would be but better. The views to the north had amazing sunsets and you could wake up at dawn and check the surf without even getting dressed. The food on location at la ventana was great, the walk down to breakfast was relaxing and Melissa was so accommodating and her breakfast was fantastic. The pool bar was awesome and Harvey was the best, he made a great drink and his smile made every day all that much better. Pili was the restaurant owner in the evening and the food was excellent. Robert helped us get out of the community to Rancho Santana for a meal to remember. We went to Mag rock for a sunset that was amazing. We went to hot springs with Yasmil and his wife and La Scalle for delicious brick oven pizza. We had couples massages in our cando which were very nice with Ana Lucia and Ana Rosanna two sisters excellent at massage. We took a trip to Aqua wellness resort for the day thanks to Yasmil and had a once in a lifetime massage in the treetops. The energy at the resort was excellent, we met so many kind people from the housekeeper, to Melissa at breakfast with amazing Acai bowls, from the security personnel, to Robert and Yasmil making every component of the trip absolutely perfect. The surf was very fun and although we understood the surf was not as good this time of year, we had super fun surf that wasn't too big to put me out of my comfort level. You can tell when it's big that it holds a top notch wave about 40 yards from the balcony view. We are surely coming back next year with the rest of our family and are looking forward to seeing everyone we met once again."

  • Best vacation ever!!!!

    "This was a true vacation. This location was amazing and the house is epic! Perfect waves in the backyard and the pool was amazing! The BEST part of our vacation was Luis and lesbia! Luis would drive us wherever we needed to go, which included knowing where to get everything from ice, beer, groceries, to the fish market, and the lobsters, best surf spots, Granada, and list the goes on and on! Lesbia is such an amazing cook. She made breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day we were there! I even got a couple recipes from her to take back with me. We kept asking if her meals we're suppose to get better and better! Delicious is a mild statement to describe her cooking. They both made our stay comfortable and relaxing! I don't think our trip would have been nearly as enjoyable without them! Love them and we can't wait to come back!"

Nicaragua Travel Tips

Sporting and Leisure Activities near Nicaragua Vacation Rentals

In the area around San Juan Del Sur, surfing is a popular pastime. The swells in Nicaragua are so legendary that they attract surfers from all over the world. Kite surfers and windsurfers can also enjoy the wind and waves. There are several schools along the coastline that provide equipment and lessons if you want to give these sports a try.

Fishing charters are widely available for those that enjoy deep sea and sport fishing. If you want to hook game fish such as marlin, sailfish or tuna, you will want to head out with an experienced skipper who can take you to the best fishing spots. If you prefer something a little more leisurely, a great way to spend an afternoon is on a snorkeling cruise. Sail out of the bay and anchor off one of the many reefs. Then spend the afternoon snorkeling and enjoy the colorful underwater world. If you hold a scuba diving qualification, there are several dive schools and charter companies that will be able to take you out to explore the many reefs. You can even upgrade your certification or sign up for a specialty course during your stay.

If you enjoy lush foliage and birding and don’t mind heights then a treetop canopy tour in the rainforest is a great daytime excursion. Travel between platforms on a zip line and experience a unique bird’s-eye view of your surroundings. Local outfitters are well equipped and ensure that you complete the excursion safely. Another popular way to explore the interior is on a horseback excursion.

Getting to Nicaragua Villas

One of the main points of entry into Nicaragua is Managua International Airport. The airport hosts a wide number of leading North American airlines as well as various other regional airlines. There are frequently scheduled commercial flights from most major hubs in the U.S.

Seasons to Visit Nicaragua Oceanfront Rentals

The peak travel season for surfers is between the months of May and November, when the swell conditions are at their best. Unfortunately, this is also the heavy rainy season. Showers are typically short-lived but downpours can be heavy. If traveling overland in areas where there are only dirt roads, you will need an all-terrain vehicle. In general, a tropical climate dominates which results in consistently warm temperatures all year long. A popular time for beach lovers is between the months of December and April. Nicaragua provides the perfect escape for those from the Northern Hemisphere who want to get away from icy climates for a while. This is also traditionally the windy season so you may need to hold onto your beach hat.

San Juan Del Sur Vacation Rentals in Nicaragua

San Juan Del Sur is one of the most popular beach destinations in Nicaragua. There are many stylish homes and villas that are available for rent. Many homes have magnificent views out over the bay and large open decks where you can dine in the evening or suntan during the day. Many have beautiful lush tropical gardens, complete with a few local inhabitants such as colorful parrots and monkeys. Many of the homes include a hospitality service where housekeepers will cook, clean and even do the grocery shopping for you. On request, they can also get in touch with local tour operators and arrange sightseeing excursions and transportation for you. On days when you are feeling lazy, you can head down to the beach or relax poolside. Hammocks strapped in the trees provide perfect places to finish reading your favorite book. The living areas are generally spacious and comfortably furnished. Entertainment centers are great for when you don’t feel like heading outdoors.
