Have visited La Veranera several times, have written several reviews, and most recently visited a couple of weeks ago. Playa El Coco Is a world apart from SJDS. Imagine your own perfect crescent, white-sand beach, end-capped by two rocky out-crops. And just around the corner from each, another deserted crescent beach, and another...

We just got back to Granada and we already miss this little gem of a place right on one of the most beautiful settings on the Pacific. From the white sands, and calming waves to the crystal clear pool and top notch service provided by the Manager, Nick, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was clean and spacious with... More

Breathtaking beauty! The property sits right on this gorgeous, practically deserted beach. Our room, the El Mar, faced the sea and was quite spacious. Ina & Jim were lovely hosts. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and breakfast on the veranda with them and Nick, the new manager. Nick is from the US and it was his first day on the... More

In addition, Gonzalo the caretaker of the property, is caring, friendly, great cook and always ready to help in anything you might need assistance with. We are... More

Breathtaking tropical paradise. This may be the finest beach in all of Latin America. It has a cozy feel with the mountains of Costa Rica as a back-drop to the south and a panorama of steady rolling waves that are mesmerizing. I like to body surf and I found waves that were perfect for my enjoyment. Surfing, kayaking, fishing, boogie... More

Just a few facts: - impressive beach (huge at low tide, clean, only a few tourists) - great food (breakfast with homemade bread and for dinner we had pizza or curry) - comfortable, clean rooms - big, clean pool We got visited by...

Small, gracious bed and breakfast situated on what may be the most attractive, unspoiled beach in Central America. Luise, the resident manager, is personable and customer focused. The food she prepares is delicious - breakfast and dinner. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. The large pool provides a great alternative to the Pacific Ocean. A turtle refuge, 100,000 lay eggs each... More

Within our first two months in Nicaragua, we already visited La Veranera twice…. And still don’t have enough. This place is just awesome, and the surrounding. Staying at La Veranera is surely worth the bumpy 40 minutes ride from San Juan and every penny you are spending. First of all, every time you are stepping through the doors into the... More

Great guest house on the beach with a pool. Breakfast is included and pretty good, although the same every day which would get a bit boring over longer stays. The master bedroom is beautiful with windows on 3 sides, one with french doors opening up to a patio with a hammock and furniture facing the beach, another to the pool... More

This guesthouse provides every visitor with quietness, a relaxing atmosphere and a feeling of luxury in Nicaragua. We got there (two girls) and having seen other accommodations in Nicaragua - this really blew us away. The prices are absolutely worth it. The rooms are equipped with quality furniture and lots of space. The master bedroom with direct connection to the... More
