Nicaragua Comments

I just came back with my family from San Juan del Sur. We only spent the day there, but slept in Granada which is only one hour ago. If you want to visit San Juan for just one day I recommend sleeping in Granada, good rates a nice places to stay at. I will surely come back to San Juan Del Sur.
I was extremely unimpressed by the town of San Juan del Sur. I agree that the beach is pretty, but other than that the citizens were unfriendly and very boring. I love Nicaragua, but I would skip San Juan and go to the much more cultured town of Granada.
San Juan del Sur is relaxed, beautiful and the people are lovely. There is a variety of budget and higher end hotels, as well as dozens of local and international-style restaurants.
I would like to share information regarding a restaurant, El Mexicano, which is a hidden gem for cheap and good quality food in Matagalpa. The owners are very friendly and the menu is excellent -- the tacos, nachos, and enchiladas are to die for. Go and enjoy some good food.
San Juan del Sur was actually a disappointment when I visited it about three years ago. The beach was dirty, the food tasteless and expensive (by Central American standards), and the first people I spoke to, workers in a small hotel, were rude and unhelpful. I was planning to spend a week or two in the town, kicking back and studying Spanish, but I bailed after the second day, totally unimpressed. However, I like -- no I love -- Nicagarua overall, and plan to return for a third time in the near future. I may even give San Juan del Sur a second chance, but I'll split real fast if things haven't improved.
I love San Juan del Sur. My parents used to take me since I was a little kid, so I have very nice memories. I know as a grown-up girl, I still I love to go there -- I just went two weeks ago to Semana Santa, such a beautiful beach.
