Casa Malinche is a place to unplug (no cell signal or Wifi). It is the perfect place for the selective nature minded traveller who loves adventure and sandy beaches away from crowds and mass resorts. Birds start visiting early in the morning - chocoyos, pijules, urracas... Little crabs, lizards and frogs may walk with you at night… A 5-minute walk down the hill will take you to the beach. El Remanso beach offers the best 'learn to surf' waves. You can get lessons and rent boards right there. The beach is beautiful, white sands, turquoise water and really, really hot sun all day long. A couple of ranchos right on the beach offer cold beers and simple but delicious food (quesadillas, fish tacos, mmm!).
Sunsets are spectacular. A full moon setting down the bay is a sight to wonder. The night stars will have you looking at constellations you've heard about, but never found the time to discover. The sounds of frogs, wind and ocean waves will lull you into sleep.
We love food, wine and entertaining. Our kitchen is set up with all the basic necessities to cook and enjoy company. Gas stove/oven, fridge, microwave, espresso and regular coffee maker, pots and pans and a charcoal grill will help you improvise wonderful cooking adventures. A well-tended patch of fresh herbs right on the terrace (mint, oregano, culantro, basil, thyme and anise) may give you some inspiration. Eventually, when you feel the urge to plug in...just drive to San Juan!
Upon arriving to the rental, the first thing you notice is the gorgeous view over looking the beach. It was breathtaking. We were then shown around the house. The living room and dining room areas have a picturesque view of the beach. We spent both...More

El Remanso is a very private and a quiet perfect beach. Sometimes you will have the beach all to yourself. House owners live there seasonally. Tourists from San Juan arrive typically for surfing lessons by late morning. We love quick day trips to San Juan to get our fresh catch of the day (red snapper, lobster, shrimps...). You can get a wonderful variety of seafood at San Juan’s harbour. A trip to the market and a mad rush to Pali (grocery store) for general stuff and vegetables typically complete the foraging. There is always the bigger Maxi-Pali (a bigger supermarket) in Rivas. San Juan is a fun place day and night. Restaurants, bars, coffee places and Wifi everywhere can help you get your fix of crowds, noise, traffic and night life!
