Recent Nicaragua reviews

  • Seriously?!?!?!

    "There's a reason why the reviews are so high! Our group of 7 were amazed at how beautiful the villas were! The pool area and courtyard are are breathtaking! The air conditioned bedrooms were heaven after walking back from the town. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! The special staff was very attentive. Having Vanessa right next door was perfect and we used her expertise often! People in the community know Vanessa and her family. The villas are surrounded by a gate with a lock. We felt safe and well looked after the entire time! Beautiful property! I have NO complaints! It was a wonderful adventure!"

  • So Great!

    "Just loved this place and Nicaragua as a whole. We're huge fans of C. Rica (and always will be) but this little piece of Nica paradise was perfect for us. Owner Mark and manager Buzz were the best - everything EXACTLY as promised. My teens' reaction upon seeing the beautiful condo, killer view, big screen TV and WiFi service better than our home? "Mom - you gotta find us more places like this for vacations!" It only got better with Pili's excellent food at the cafe and Esteban's killer pina coladas/smoothies. Ricki and Jarvin rounded out the excellent service at our small but oh so perfect cafe/bar/pool a stone's throw from the condo's back porch. Hubby couldn't decide whether to golf first and then surf or vice versa. Did plenty of both - the 9 hole course is beautifully maintained and you MUST tee off the blues on hole 7 - the view is the best of most golf courses short of the big famous ones. Didn't take advantage of so much that we could have - fishing, fresh seafood delivered to our door (well, who was I to compete with Pili's cooking?), pangas to other surf spots.... but we had to save something for next trip! Carolina cleaned the condo for 3 - 4 hours every other day and washed, dried and folded our clothes. Maxi Pali grocery store in Rivas has all supplies necessary for self-sufficiency. Road is paved almost to Playa Gigante turnoff - 1/4 mile of progress every week! Massage by Miriam - in the condo - heaven. Buzz will arrange. The breeze was consistent and wonderful - way fewer bugs than at our family farm in Kansas. Sadly, the ongoing drought in Nica made for great weather for our stay, but everything is still very, very lush compared to our home in SoCal. Loved the howler monkeys we heard every night and every morning in the hills to the south of the river - and one little guy who visited one day in the tree next to the condo. Incredibly brilliant blue and orange crabs in hundreds of holes under the trees. Bird sounds that we miss very much. And the beach - our very own. My teens spent hours body surfing, collecting shells, exploring tide pools at south end of the beach. Never, ever saw more than 5 people there at one time. Even in front of the break, a huge crowd was maybe 12 people on the beach. Based on our observations of the level of activity EVERYwhere in Nica, this kind of private paradise will fast disappear. We will be back soon!"

  • Unobstructed Beauty

    "We stayed a week at this lovely property. Chuck and Lefty are fantastic hosts who try to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. Lefty will sunbathe with you on the deck, and Chuck has a lot of local information, so if you are looking for things to do, or want to know more about the area be sure to ask him. I didn't ever feel unsafe or leery in the area... the only thing that startled me was the sound the howler monkeys make (I had never heard anything like it before). The house is comfortable with no need for A/C even on hot days; the breeze is constant and keeps it cool. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make meals (just add food from Pali or the local SJDS mercado). The views are unparalleled and breathtaking. My husband and I traveled with our kids (12 & 17), and another family of 3. The house easily accommodated all of us without feeling crowded. We walked to Playa Madera a few times and enjoyed the trip (ask Chuck about the shortcut; it will make your life much easier) We will definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in this area."

  • 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!"

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.
