Destination: San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua

July 12, 2015 — by Griffin Thall


Cool breeze, palm trees and waves for days. If you ever wanted to visit a surfer’s paradise, then book your next trip to San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua.



This laid back Central American town is full of vibrant culture, delicious local cuisine and tropical sunsets you’ll definitely want to share on Instagram. As a popular tourist spot, there’s always something to do: shop at the local markets, play beach volleyball under the sun, catch some waves at the nearby breaks OR just take a nap in a hammock all day.




If you’re looking for a more relaxing evening, you can always watch the sunset over the bay as you sip on an ice cold Toña from one of the many restaurants that line the entire beach.



Just outside San Juan Del Sur sit beautiful, almost deserted beaches with cute oceanside eateries where you can grab fresh fish tacos and papaya pineapple smoothies while you watch the waves. Don’t forget to roam the shore for beach treasures!
