Vacation Homes and Villas for rent in and around San Juan del Sur

Find your beach blanket Babylon in San Juan del Sur, a small beach town on Nicaragua’s southwest coast. San Juan del Sur is a great place to start exploring the country’s southern Pacific coast because of its massive Christ statue over the harbour. The resort’s main drag is lined with brightly coloured Victorian clapboard homes, as well as unique gift boutiques, surf schools, and street cafes. It features a vibrant nightlife with buzzy pubs and hip, open-air restaurants catering to all budgets, making it popular with tourists. Book a vacation rental in San Juan del Sur and discover adventure right at your door.

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

It’s not all sand, sea, and surfers at San Juan del Sur. The Christ of Mercy statue stands 440 feet tall on the shoreline. A suspension bridge spans the Rio San Juan, and a short, steep trek up the steep mountain path leads to the peak. The entrance fee is a few bucks, but the views are just stunning. If that isn’t exciting enough, try ziplining through the rainforest to get a fresh perspective on San Juan del Sur. Swing through the treetops like the indigenous spider monkeys, gliding over waterfalls and creeks.

In San Juan del Sur, a surfer’s paradise, Hang Ten.

Once a stopover for gold prospectors, San Juan del Sur has turned into a Mecca for surfers. While the town is built around a crescent-shaped bay of sand, the best surfing beaches are found further up the coast. The most accessible surf beach is Playa Maderas, which is about a 20-minute drive from town. It attracts surfers of all skills, from beginners to seasoned board hounds, who come to catch a wave or three. If surfing sounds like too much effort, consider snorkelling or taking a dolphin and whale-watching tour on a boat adventure.

San Juan del Sur – a tropical place

Nicaragua has only two seasons: wet and dry, with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees all year. It’s no wonder that the rainy season is strong, with tropical downpours, on an island filled with rainforests. The driest and most popular months to come are November through May, when vacation rentals in San Juan del Sur can fill up months in advance. Tropical rain showers are generally brief throughout the year, except September and October, which should be avoided unless you are an amphibian. Surfers will find the most extraordinary conditions from March to November.

La Flor Nature Reserve is turtle-y amazing.

San Juan del Sur, located on Nicaragua’s southwestern coast, offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. Did you know that Nicaragua’s virgin rainforests contain 7% of the earth’s biodiversity? La Flor Nature Reserve is one of Central America’s most important turtle nesting locations. The Olive Ridley turtles, which come up onto the beaches between July and December, call this place home. The area is rich in marine life, including marlin and sailfish, in addition to turtles. In their natural habitats, brown pelicans, howler monkeys, and iguanas can also be seen.
