  • October getaway

    "My GF and I decided to escape the funky Fall weather in the Colorado Mountains and get a beach fix before ski season. This place was the answer. OK, everyone said the weather in October was always raining. Not true. Some rain but the GREEN of the land and the uncrowded quiet made up for it. It was our second visit to SW Nica. We knew this was the general area we wanted, and Hacienda Iguana was pretty much exactly it. Just modern enough, and as secure as anyone could want. Online, this 1BR Condo looked like everything we needed and it didn't disappoint when we got there. Very clean with a full sized kitchen and good appliances. Modern bathroom with a sweet glass block shower. And a provided cell phone made staying in touch with the nearby managers Seth and Lindsey especially easy when we had a few questions. Their staff was also exceptional in answering our needs at anytime. Super waves all along the beach most days didn't disappoint, even though it was the *off season*. The light sand beach (Playa Colorado) is arguably the best in the country, and even has good shelling for those who might enjoy that sort of thing. Also a nine hole golf course within walking distance. The pool right out the door and downstairs is well maintained and appreciated after a day in the ocean. We made up for the closed (only in October) restaurants by stocking up with everyday groceries on the way there with our driver, and easily arranged to return for more after a week. Inexpensive fresh fish/lobster from the small fishing village next door were the main courses for patio sunset dinners, accessed via a quick and fun ride on a rental motorcycle from NSR. Or there's some phone numbers in the information folder to call for delivery if desired. Good, funky restaurants there too, that remain open in the off season. All in all we left after 3 weeks completely satisfied and refreshed, though a little sore from surfing. Would definitely recommend this Unit for a couple wanting what we did. It's comfortable, not too small, and not too big. Perfect..."

  • Nice house in great location

    "The house was located near the center of Granada, just a few blocks from the center of town near many wonderful restaurants. The neighbors were very friendly , even when out Spanish was not the best, and the neighborhood was very safe and comfortable. The house was nice and fairly accurately described. The upstairs bedroom can be a little noisy from the lizards and other creatures on the roof and we did have a bat drop in for a swim in the pool :) The chairs pool side were great for resting and reading and the kitchen was well supplied if we had had time to cook. There were just too many restaurants to check out in our short time in Nicaragua. Over all a very pleasant place to stay for the money and I would definitely stay here again."

  • Casa la selva

    "Excellent staff, very accommodating. A very secure, safe location to relax poolside in your secluded back yard and then walk across the road to great surf. I would recommend getting picked up and taken back to airport by staff. Also, get it catered. Lobster, MahiMahi, etc."

  • Perfect Family Reunion!

    "You know when vacation feels like vacation ... Then you instantly know you made right choice!! We couldn't have picked a better place to spend time with family and have a family reunion. The time spent in this home was spectacular. The views were amazing and breathtaking. The pool, the hammocks, the house were all sssssooo perfect! Originally it was only going to be 11 of us but we ended up taking 15 people. The more the merrier! And the best thing is that this house is so perfectly arranged that it didn't feel that all 15 of us were there. Bill was very quick to respond to my emails. We didn't get to meet Grace or Sergio during our stay but the security guards on the property answered all our questions and were beyond friendly. We stayed up past midnight all the nights and we would see the guard constantly walking around and checking. The kitchen is fully equipped. We were not missing anything. The supermarket as well as quite a few restaurants are about a 5 min drive away. Great food in the beachside restaurants. You are also a short walk/hike (for those of us out of shape!) to Aqua Wellness resort. The restaurant there was amazing! They even deliver up to the house! There are also plenty of activities to do both at the resort and in town. The secluded beach was very beautiful. We had some choppy water and could not enjoy it to its fullest but our kids were more than happy to jump back in the pool! The house was very very clean! The TV in the living room area is a Smart TV and the kids enjoyed Netflix while the adults enjoyed the balcony with some drinks. The top balcony was perfect to catch some sun, do some reading and provide an even better view of Bahia Gigante! The ocean sounds were so relaxing all day and all night! We are definitely going back next year!"

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.
