  • Tropical ocean getaway on Nicaragua's EmeraldCoasT

    "The house is spectacular and spacious with wonderful flow. Perfect for a large family or a group of friends who want to share food and sunsets. The local staff kept up with all our requests elegantly and we felt 100% safe and secure by the smiles of all the security guards who greeted us night and day! I highly recommend this place for anyone interested in luxury living/vacation in rural Nicaragua."

  • Stunning view

    "Even though we haven't given this 5 stars, I would highly recommend this condo to others. Why? The view--the waves crashing over the rocks on the north side--is stunning and the beach is right in front with the soothing sound of the crashing waves. Condos on the south side are set further back. So much nicer to be up close! The condo has been nicely renovated--attractive cabinets in kitchen, nice tile work in bathroom and kitchen. A reasonable selection of dishes, including pots & pans, serving dishes and containers for leftovers. Nice pegs for drying towels and swimwear on the balcony. Comfortable furniture on the balcony. A/C cooled well, although leaked even after repair. When we pointed out some problems with security and a/c leaking, the manager responded immediately (the fast response deserved 5*). Why 4 (4.5 would be more accurate)? Could have used a blender, juicer (a manual one would be fine) in the kitchen. (I think the manager had purchased some items but hadn't put these in the condo yet.) Instructions on how to use the toaster in the microwave would be helpful for the technologically challenged. Futon was functional but not very comfortable. Minor points. 4.7? Definitely would pass on this vrbo # to others!"

  • Wonderful Vacation Oasis!

    "We stayed at Perla Del Norte for 3 nights this August and absolutely loved it. We were traveling with my 7 year old son and my 72 year old father-in-law and this house met everyones needs and then some! The pool kept my son entertained for hours as well as cooled us off after hot, humid days of sightseeing. The home is very centrally located - can walk everywhere and there are many great restaurants nearby. Including a yummy vegetarian place right next door. It was located on a neighborhood street, and the bedrooms at the back of the house are very quiet. You could hear some street noise from the upstairs bedroom, but that was overshadowed by a lovely balcony with a view of the cathedral. Communicating with the owner and caretaker was easy-they were very friendly and responsive! We will definitely come back!"

  • Perfect in everyway!

    "Wow! What a wonderful place! The photos don't really do it justice! Everything that is stated in the listing for this property was accurate except the view is so much more stunning than any photo! The home was spotless and everything in working order. There is also plenty of purified water on sight so don't worry about that. Jan and John were great in all their correspondence with us and so helpful! Be sure and take their recommendations for restaurants and activities as they were right on the target! Jan and John had recommended that if we go to Ometepe that we stay at least 2 days~We did not and I wish we would have. But we hope to go back someday and explore Ometepe again as it was one of the highlights of our trip. You just can't go wrong with this property!"

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.
