San Juan del Sur
San Juan del Sur (beach) – for those looping for one of the best beaches in Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur usually tops the list. Located 2 ½ hours southeast of Managua (near the Costa Rican border), this beach wins over those looking for an eco-tourist-friendly destination.
San Juan del Sur, which has an almost perfect “U” shape, is surrounded by mountains. The sand of this beach is not white as the one we can find in the Caribbean, but it clearer than in the Pacific. Boat rides to visit neighboring beaches, sports fishing, diving, marine photography, whale watch, canopy tours and a hectic nightlife is found in this destination. Swimming is possible thanks to the tranquil waters, but it’s worth mentioning that there are a lot of boats on the bay.
