San Juan del Sur:
San Juan del Sur is a coastal Pacific town in southern Nicaragua, forty-five minutes
north of the Costa Rican border. It is a popular destination for Nicaraguan
vacationers, international tourists, expats, and surfers. Located in the state of
Rivas, it is famed for its vibrant culture, world class waves, friendly locals,
dense jungle, abundance of animals, pristine beaches, nightlife, and the
infamous Christ Statue that overlooks the San Juan harbor.
Escamequita is a small coastal village located thirty minutes north of the Costa Rican
border, and thirty minutes south of San Juan. Escamequita is
renowned for having the best beaches in San Juan del Sur, a rural and
traditional way of life, friendly locals, & dense tropical jungle. Guests will see an
abundance of wildlife both on land and in the ocean; howler monkeys,
white-faced capuchin, sloths, giant anteaters, sea turtles, dolphins, parrots,
toucans, and whales are a daily occurence. While other more ominous
creatures reside in the area; jaguar, jaguarundi, tapir, and saltwater crocodiles.
Ometepe Island is an island formed by two volcanoes rising out of Lake Nicaragua.Concepcion & Maderas Volcano are unique from each other, Maderas has a cloud forest, is more biodiverse, & has a lake in the crater at the top. While Concepcion has a steep dramatic cone that can be seen over 100 miles away.
Ometepe is renowned for its adventure activities, nature reserves, rainforest, diverse wildlife population, beautiful lake-side beaches, crystal-clear springs, pre-colombian archaeological sites, and some of the friendliest locals in all of Nicaragua. Add a rich history of different tribes and cultures, stories told by the petroglyphs, ceramics, and statues found throughout the island and you can start to imagine a paradise with all of the allure of something other-worldly.
Ometepe is a 50-minute ferry ride from the small town of San Jorge, just north of San Juan del Sur. Learn about the history and importance of the island, experience local Ometepe cuisine at the markets, kayak amongst caiman in the mangroves of Lake Nicaragua, visit the volcanic cold springs, trek through the cloudforest looking for waterfalls, try delicious homemade chocolate on a chocolate farm, ride around the volcanic backroads on an ATV, & relax at beaches known only by locals.
