San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur sunset

San Juan del Sur at sunset

Nicaragua’s main beach resort at San Juan del Sur pales in comparison to the resort areas in Mexico, but that’s one of the reasons we love it.  From $2500/week beach houses overlooking the ocean to simple $10/night rooms such as ours, there’s something here for every type of traveler.  Located just minutes from some of the finest surfing beaches in the country, it attracts a steady stream of backpackers and vacationers.  The beach is beautiful and in the evenings the sunset lights up the sky in magnificent reds and oranges before disappearing behind the cliffs that frame this picturesque bay.  In fact, San Juan del Sur recently became a popular cruise ship destination when many of Mexico’s beaches were bypassed due to the swine flu outbreak. 

San Juan del Sur beachIt’s impossible to pass up a beautiful dinner overlooking the ocean.  We spent an evening at restaurante El Timón, known to be one of the best in San Juan del Sur, and enjoyed a delicious meal of grilled whole red snapper, seafood rice and lobster tail with fresh veggies.  Que rico!

Here are a couple more pictures of the sunset on our last night in San Juan:
