Sunset in San Juan del Sur


Traditional dancing

Our plans to head to Leon, Nicaragua quickly changed after realizing an hour into our travels out of Costa Rica that Alec still suffers from motion sickness in buses. A grueling 6 hours to the border, followed by 2 hours crossing the border in scorching heat sealed our change of plans to the closest beach town over the border.

San Juan del Sur is a small fun little beach town with friendly locals and expats and really cheap and tasty fish! We found a little hostel-apartment with a wonderful Nica Mom who couldnĀ“t do enough to make our stay comfortable.

First impressions of Nicaragua have been great - friendly people and much less touristy than Costa Rica.
