Such a gorgeous view! But I lived here in 2008, and I know that there are times when the river that feeds into the bay can become flooded. The problem with this is that people's homes (and more importantly, their outhouses) are located along the river, and with the flooding come a whole lot of nastiness. If you're going to... More

the atmosphere here is totally relaxing. wine and dine on the beach. the sunrises were beautiful, and the sunsets even more so. we stayed here for a few days and wish we planned on being here longer. take the boat tour if you have some time to kill... great cheap way to get out into the ocean and explore...

Great for the evening stroll and sunset. Cold beer and ice cream available. The southern end has some nice benches on the board walk.

Course sand beach in the Harbor. The surf was high and the stirred up sand was rough on the skin. It is right in the town and had a good crowd even on an overcast day. Quit scenic and close to everything.

Best to ask to Hostel Casa Amarilla to drive you to a private beach. The hostel has a trip of 5 beach virgin to discover in half day.

This beach is nothing special- just a nice place to cool off and have drinks in the evening at the beachside restaurants. I was warned: don't walk the beach at night unless you feel like getting robbed.

The beach in San Juan Del Sur looks nice and is good for a walk along the shorelines. But the best place is about 5 miles north where Playa Marsella, Maderas, and Majuagal dominate the surfing, swimming, and diving scene. Lots of small hotelitos and restaurants. No shortage of places to buy beer and food. Buss and taxis will get... More

What I can't figure out is, there may have been 5 people total on the entire beach on an absolutely gorgeous day. The water was perfect and the beach looked like a manicured sand trap on a high end golf course. Hopefully this review doesn't spoil this little secret!

Loved the kids playing, laid back enchanting feel. Felt welcomed in this piece of Nica paradise. Great for a walk, sunset take-in, close to town. Fantastic town with 'home' feel straight away:)
