I travelled with my young son of 5 and am already hoping to return with the rest of my family.
Our hosts were outstanding; they went out of their way to make sure we were happy. They were really friendly, knowledgable and compassionate - and they were good cooks!
(Although it is not advertised they do offer meals for a super decent price). There are also a handful of outstanding restaurants in close proximity that you could eat at or get take out from.
The accommodation was comfortable and clean. Wildlife could sometimes be noisy from the surrounding jungle but that kind of added to the whole experience.
Our hosts organized a horse ride right from the house down and around one of the beaches and they also have connections at local resorts to use their pools.
Both of the beaches in walking distance were amazing. A surfing beach and a more secluded beach. My son was thrilled to see all the wildlife; hermit crabs, pumpkin crabs, gecko's, as well as pigs, horses, cows, roosters, chickens and their wee baby chicks from surrounding properties.
We didn't spend much time in the town of San Juan del Sur as there was so much to do in our immediate vicinity. However the town is awesome and if you don't have a car you can take a shuttle from the guesthouse. We did spent part of a day on a catamaran which sailed out of San Juan del Sur, once again organized by our host, which was pretty cool.
Overall an outstanding experience.
