You’ll find that most people (especially in the US) will raise an eyebrow and look at you funny if you mention going to Nicaragua. For whatever reason, it has earned unjustified reputation for being dangerous, corrupt and unstable. When in actuality Nicaragua is known regionally as being the safest country in Central America – even safer than Costa Rica. Its true that Nicaragua had some turbulent times, but it has since stabilized. The government has begun to realize that the more tourism that occurs, the more money the country will have, this has given them reason to become more stable. The locals in San Juan del Sur welcome tourists realizing that their economy has started to thrive on tourism. Unlike Mexico, various street vendors won’t heckle you or be pushy to come into their shop.
San Juan del Sur a great place for anyone who enjoys marine life. Humpback whales, dolphins, and sea turtles just to name a few. Its true that you can go to the top of a cliff and peer down to the water with some binoculars but why not get up close and personal? We’ll take you out and get right in the middle of their activity. It’s really a sight to see when the dolphins start dancing on the water and shrieking aloud. Its estimated that the western coast of Nicaragua produces between 1-2 million baby sea turtles each year. Similar to salmon, the sea turtles return to the exact location where they were hatched each year to lay eggs. Its truly a phenomenon and can’t be witnessed in many places around the world.
If you’re not familiar with the weather on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, you might be a little skeptical about the lack of air conditioning some places advertise. DO NOT WORRY! The average high temperature is in the mid 80’s and with the cool breeze blowing off the Pacific Ocean its usually pleasant. Most hotels and houses have air conditioning in the bedrooms, so, if that’s a big concern to you, make sure you ask before you arrive.
