Best Hotels In San Juan Del SurI rented a private room in a house, which was great because it had A/C. But, since I was traveling with only Monkey, I kind of regretted not staying at a hotel to meet more people. These are some the most social hotels in San Juan Del Sur that I’d recommend you check out!
Hotel AlcazarAcross from the beach and blocks from the city center, Hotel Alcazar is a clean, well-kept option. Even has a pool.
Barrio Cafe HotelAs I mention below, the Barrio Cafe Hotel doubles as a hotel and restaurant. Rooms are clean, and it’s in a perfect location if you want to be in the thick of things.
Surfing Donkey HostelIf you’re on a budget and don’t care much about staying in a super clean hotel, the Surfing Donkey Hostel is a must. This is where most of the travelers flock, so you’ll meet people, have fun, and some consider the rooftop bar is the place to be at night.
Surf Breaks In San Juan Del Sur I remember thinking, Holy shit! These waves are HUGE!Many travel to Nicaragua for the surf…for good reason! Warm weather, warm waves. And San Juan del Sur is the spot. I was there in summer 2015, so I had not yet ever surfed. You can sign up for surf schools or simply rent a board and figure it out on your own, which is what I opted to do! There are multiple breaks up and down the Pacific coast close by. Each spot had a little restaurant/bar on the beach so you can make a day trip of it. Be sure to check out all three of these:
- Playa Maderas, the most popular surf break and north of San Juan Del Sur.
- Playa Hermosa, I skipped this spot because the waves were way too big that day for beginners.
- Playa Remanzo, down a long dirt road; this is where I went my second surf day and got completely wrecked, but the beach was so beautiful!
