Traveling around the Town

The most convenient way for tourists to travel around this small town is by taxi. You will find a number of taxis on the roads willing to take passengers just about anywhere. Fares are reasonable so you don’t have to worry about being overcharged. Many hotels also offer shuttle services from different beaches. Check with the hotel you are staying at for this service.

Places to Visit

The town is very laid back, so it does not really boast of numerous activities. This makes it perfect for senior travelers who are looking for a place to relax. The waterfront is one of the best places to visit. Here tourists will find a number of small boats anchored at the harbor, which has spectacular vistas. Taking a day trip to Playa Madera by water taxi is also a great idea. The ride costs less than $10 and lasts for about 30 minutes. There are a number of beaches to the north and south of the town that are worth visiting. Tourists who are simply looking for a way to pass the time should visit the Pier, which has numerous things to do and see. You can enjoy open live music, acoustic jams and beach bonfires.


San Juan del Sur offers tourists a variety of places to dine at restaurants and cafes that can be found along the waterfront. Seafood is the local specialty served by almost all the restaurants. Many of them also serve alcohol and offer wonderful views of the beach. This makes them a great place to sit back and unwind with good food and drinks. There are also a few places that serve pizzas, sandwiches, pastas and breakfast in the town. Food is good and prices are reasonable, making the town a wonderful place for foodies.


This is one thing that you don’t have to worry about, as San Juan del Sur boasts of numerous hotels that can meet all accommodation requirements. Most of the hotels in the town are within a walking distance from the beach. Some of the hotels offer breakfast and a few other services.
