  • The comforts of home with the vacation atmosphere

    "Our family (kids 15/13) spent 7 nights at Casa La Selva and had an absolutely wonderful time. James took excellent care of us along with David and Nelson (great day trip to Granada guys!). And who can forget Giselle, she is the most wonderful cook and took great care of us to make sure we were well fed and happy. I was not sure how the fully catered option was going to work but after the week there is no other way to go trust me. Well worth it to work the details with James and enjoy the weather and surf. Also be sure to arrange for James to secure transportation for you from the airport, no way I would want to navigate that on my own. I am adventurous but why stress out! The ocean is just a short 2 minutes walk from the pool and you have absolutely miles of beach and surf adventure with very few others around. It was great to watch the surfers and do a little boogie boarding and take the walk down the beach to the beach club for a Tona and some Nachos. I also would highly suggest a day trip to Granada, what a wonderful and historic city with plenty to do. David and Nelson were wonderful hosts. If your kids are happy with hanging out and relaxing this is the place, probably not so much if your kids are always looking to be entertained. It is somewhat remote but a truly wonderful and relaxing time with 5 star hosts."

  • Perfect Trip to Nicaragua

    "We've been on a few other trips to Nicaragua and this one lived up to them all. We've staying in condos and houses in the past but this particular unit was amazing. Tons of room for six people to sleep, relax and prepare to surf. All the food was amazing and we never had worry about a thing. If you're looking for a turn-key unit this is the one for you."

  • Garden Cafe property an oasis

    "I stayed in the VRBO room for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room is spacious and ceilings amazing. The three fans and thick walls made it comfortable. Breakfast, included, was a real treat. I can still taste the coconut French toast and the passion fruit smoothies!! The restaurant is in a beautiful setting and i loved the music. The lounge room was very comfortable and inviting, especially on hot days. All the staff was warm and welcoming and the early morning taxi driver to the airport was nice and early and conveyed me safely to the airport. I would definitely stay there again."

  • Back for a third summer!

    "We spent our third summer at Casa Portugal and continue to be charmed by Jiquilillo. The house is amazing and the caretakers are wonderful people. We have stayed a month here for the last three summers and my sons and I feel at home. Follow Sue and Peter's suggestions for a wonderful experience. Once in town, you will discover all types of activities, from a Volcano hike to a trip to the Padre Ramos estuary. There is a great surf/body board break right in front of the house, and a huge porch with a tiled table where we spend most of our time. I strongly recommend connecting with the folks at Rancho Esperanza. It is a great place to volunteer and enjoy getting to know the staff and guests (typically backpackers from all over the world). We arrange transport from the airport with the owners and stock the kitchen in Chinandega on our way in. We don't bother with a car. The house is exactly as described, and Juan and Jamileth are available to help with anything you need. We (my sons are 12 and 14) hope to return again next summer!!!"

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.
