Some people say that the Nicaraguan Pacific coastline reminds them of California fifty years ago. It’s a fair comment when you consider the isolated beaches, fantastic surf and raw feel to the countryside around. There are sweeping bays, high cliffs covered in overhanging gnarled trees, and rocky outcrops swathed in soft green moss. Snow white Frangipani trees and pink bougainvillea blanket the cliffs. Lemon yellow butterflies flutter in and around the rocks. And the conical shaped hills out in the ocean make for a wonderfully dramatic coast. Whether you’re a beach bum, a surfer or a nature lover, you will find your own special place in San Juan del Sur.
We stayed at Punta Teonoste, Morgans Rock and the Pelican Eyes resort.
