Things to do

From giant Jesus to ziplining, San Juan is full of Sur-prises

San Juan del Sur is not all about sand, sea, and surfers. Towering 440-feet high on the seawall is the Christ of Mercy statue. It's reached by a suspension bridge over the Rio San Juan, and short, sharp hike up the steep mountain road to the peak. It costs a couple of dollars entry, but the views are simply breathtaking. If that's not thrilling enough, why not see San Juan del Sur from a different perspective by ziplining through the rainforest. Glide over waterfalls and creeks, and swing through the treetops like the resident spider monkeys.


Hang Ten in San Juan del Sur, a surfer's paradise

Once a resting place for gold prospectors, over the years San Juan del Sur has become a Mecca for surfers. While the town is set around a sandy crescent-shaped bay, the best surf beaches are found further along the coast. Playa Maderas is the most accessible surf beach, a 20-minute drive from town. It appeals to all levels of surfer, from beginners to experienced board hounds, who come to catch a wave or 3. If surfing sounds like too much effort, why not take a boat excursion and go snorkeling, or take a dolphin- and whale-watching tour.


San Juan del Sur - a totally tropical place

Nicaragua has only 2 seasons, wet and dry, although temperatures are a consistent 80 degrees. For an island brimming with rainforests, it's no surprise that the rainy season is fierce, with tropical downpours. November through May is the driest and most popular time to visit, when San Juan del Sur vacation rentals can get booked up months in advance. Throughout the rest of the year, tropical rain showers are usually brief, except for September and October, which are best avoided unless you are an amphibian. For surfers, March to November has the best surf conditions.

Natural features

La Flor Nature Reserve is turtle-y amazing

Perched on the southwestern coast of Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur is blessed with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. Did you know that Nicaragua's unspoiled rainforests are home to 7 percent of the planet's biodiversity? La Flor Nature Reserve is one of the most important turtle nesting sites in Central America. It's home to the Olive Ridley turtles, which come up onto the beaches between July and December. As well as turtles, the area is rich in marine life, including marlin and sailfish. Brown pelicans, howler monkeys, and iguanas can also be spotted in their natural surroundings.
