San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur is a small beach town on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. The food here is incredible, and the beach is beautiful, but you do have to watch out for petty crime. I highly recommend avoiding the beach at night due to crime.

What to do in San Juan del Sur

Playa
San Juan del Sur 

The beach at San Juan del Sur is a must-see, but you have to be safe while here because there is a lot of petty crime. You can also hike up to see the Cristo de La Misericordia statue.

Downtown

The downtown area in San Juan del Sur is one full of traditional Nicaraguan clothing and merchandise, as well as great views of mountains cascading into the ocean.

Sunset
Watching

Due to San Juan del Sur's unique location in the tropics and on the Pacific Ocean, it has some of the best views for sunset watching. I recommend eating at one of the restaurants on the beach for a great view of the water and a great seafood meal.
