“Where is everybody!”

Reviewed March 22, 2013

We knew San Juan del Sur was for surfers, but where are any other tourists. The beach itself was clean - but empty, there are many restaurants facing the ocean and the sunsets were pretty awesome I don't think we will be going back (unfortunately)

It is the beach right in the city of San Juan del Sur, making it very convenient, but also with some downsides - lots of people and buildings somewhat spoiling the natural beauty. But very picturesque despite it.

Been to some truly beautiful beaches in my travels and, unfortunately cannot rate SJDS beach as one of them. It is a nice little harbor, with nice sunsets, but if you are going to Nica for beaches, pay the $3.00 fee and go to Playa Hermosa which is only a short drive away.

Nice beach with some waves to play in. The beach is however quite large and there are no trees or anything where you can sit in the shadow, because the sun is really dangerous! Lot of people come here for the weekend and now, around Easter, the beach is really crowded!

Beautiful beach that is very clean and well maintained by business owners. Make sure you have a 4X4 if you want to drive there or use one of the many stuttle services from town. Well worth the effort!!
