Recent Nicaragua reviews

  • Amazing spot right in front of the main surf break!

    "I rented this house along with 2 other couples and one 3 year old. It was absolutely amazing. If you have surfers with you, we did, the main break Colorados is literally in front of the house. If you weren't a surfer, this house would still make a lovely romantic getaway. The upstairs has a separate entrance and is HUGE, so just decide who gets that ahead of time if you are traveling with companions. The rental agency Iguana Surf Rentals was fabulous to work with. Nicaragua is a truly lovely country, worth visiting. We used Mateo Blevins for arranging our chef, transportation, and any and all needs we had during our stay, he was great!"

  • Beautiful house and city!

    "We had a great time at Casa Anita and we were happy we chose this house for our first trip to Nicaragua. Casa Anita is very beautiful and peaceful inside but then right outside your door is all of the culture of Granada. We really enjoyed walking around the city, taking horse carriage rides and exploring the nearby volcano and markets. We had us and our two boys (9 and 7) and everyone had a wonderful time."

  • Just perfect and for a reasonable price

    "We stayed two nights at this Casita (family, 3 small children) and had a wonderful time! The house is very comfy, well equiped kitchen and a plenty of space for children to play and for parents to sit down (both inside and outside) and enjoy a shot of Flor de Cana... A 5min walk to a beautiful surf beach, swimming pool (ideal for both adults and children), restaurant (delicious) and a yoga cabana (one of the best yoga classes we have ever taken.) But above all it is an excelent base (for a reasonable price) for exploring the surroundings - beaches, surfing, restaurants with great views, turtles and other animals, etc. If you want to explore, better come with your own car if you can. Enjoy!"

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.
