Recent Nicaragua reviews

  • Fantastic property with incredible views

    "Iguana is one of our favorite vacation destinations in the world, and this condo on the quiet and private N end of the beach is the perfect place to experience Nicaragua's best beach. Other than making the walk to Pili's beachfront restaurant every night, we found it hard to leave,"

  • My Stay at Hacienda Villas through Hacienda Iguana Rentals

    "My brother and I decided to join in last minute on a group surf trip to Nica. We were too late to get into the house the group was renting, so we had to book our own apartment. We found the 1-bedroom in Hacienda Villas and contacted Roger (property manager) right away. He was quick with response, extremely thorough and articulate in all correspondence, and was super helpful throughout our stay as well. The apartment had a great view of the ocean, a pool, full kitchen, and balcony. I will be booking again with these guys."

  • Great quiet place to hang in Nicaragua

    "Overall, the place is exactly what we had hoped for: beautiful, nice, quiet, clean, friendly, and limited people. Beaches are outstanding, and the people are very nice. Our condo was in perfect condition, and the property managers were always available if we needed something. (Skip the in-house meal service, which was not worth it). Waves were not great, but i knew it was the off season. It was rideable, which is all i could have expected for this time of year."

  • Great place

    "Went with 9 guys for a weekend getaway. Staff was very accommodating. Place is big and beautiful. Need a car to get into town as it's about a 10 min drive away. But the villa is kept up nicely and a great view of the bay. We had a chef who was great and had prearranged all the groceries. All in all a good place. They charge an extra 5% for using a credit card so bring cash. And the cash needs to be good quality (they reject bills with any tears). The live on property caretaker was a nice guy and he did a good job. No one on staff speaks any English so ensure to speak Spanish or have a good dictionary."

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.
