"Our group of 8 adults stayed at the Wave Garden for 9 days in July 2014 and had an amazing time. The house was located directly in front of the Colorados surf break and offered all day viewing entertainment of the surfing. The house was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Favorite parts of the house were the indoor and outdoor pools, lush tropical gardens, art, outdoor bar, and upstairs balcony with crochet hammocks. We kept the glass accordion doors open all day to enjoy the sea breeze. Bedrooms were icy cold at night with the ACs. We got the meal plan and enjoyed every one of Roger and Amilkar's meals! The banana pancakes, dragonfruit juice, cantaloupe smoothies, lobster tails, red snapper, fish tacos, salads and refried beans were our favorites. We were never hungry and were hesitant to try any meals outside of the house because ours were so amazing. We did venture to Magnific Rock one night for a sunset dinner and highly recommend that for both the food and amazing panoramic views. We spent our days surfing at Colorados and Panga Drops, hiking, biking, strolling the beaches for shells, and relaxing in the pools and the hammocks. We rented bikes and explored Hacienda Iguana, the eco reserve, and parts of nearby Rancho Santana. We saw monkeys, exotic birds, iguanas, and lots of crabs! Check the pool for crabs before you get in! They were harmless but loved to take a dip in the pool! We hiked to Gigante and enjoyed Tonas at Buena Vista. We also hiked to Los Perros (both the short way and long way) and made it over to the stairs and explored Playa Duna. Some in the group also rented moto bikes and explored that way. We enjoyed happy hour at the Iguana Beach Club -- $1 Tonas and must-try Passionfruit Margaritas and Banana Daikiris. Seth and Lindsey were so attentive and helpful with all the coordination. I coordinated the trip, transportation from the airport, and meal plan with Lindsey ahead of time and Seth was very attentive to our needs while in the house. I really appreciated the cell phone provided in the house to contact them at a moment's notice. Nicaragua is a beautiful country and the people are so friendly. We were worried about safety prior to travelling but never felt unsafe while there. We can't wait to go back!!!"Guest: Susan Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 25, 2014View listing
"My husband and I stayed here for 3 weeks in May. Maribel and Faxis are an aunt and nephew team that take care of the property and an absolute joy. We still miss Maribel. The beds and pillows are so comfortable, whew! There is AC in every room that keeps you in the comforts of home (U.S.). The kitchen is phenomenal, for any where. The outside seating area is perfect for coffee and evening cocktails and hanging out. The pool is one of Rancho Santana locals favorites because of the shade, a precious commodity!!! There is a tv for the men ;) We were able to watch the NHL playoffs from Nicaragua, who can ask for more. We stayed by ourselves and had a few people in and out too. The layout is so comfortable whether your two people or ten. We can't wait to go back!!! Recommendation: Rent a car. This is not a unique recommendation for this property, you're going to want to explore the surrounding beaches and what not, you're going to want a car no matter what ( that is coming from a cheapskate!)"Guest: Whitney B.

"This house was perfect for our group of 10 adults. The house exceeded all of our expectations, and we had a great stay. We especially enjoyed the pool and the fully stocked kitchen. The location was also ideal, being only a few blocks from the main square. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others. The only hiccup to our stay was low water pressure/no water in the upstairs master bedroom, but this was probably due to city water and not the house specifically."Guest: EL Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: April 22, 2014View listing
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.
