About San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur is a popular vacation destination in Nicaragua, particularly among surfers and divers. Visitors will find several beaches, bars and restaurants along the coast, each with its own appeal. Beyond the sea, travelers can explore the local villages on a motorcycle tour or visit the La Flor Beach Natural Reserve where Olive Ridley sea turtles are bred.
