Overview

Nicaragua’s Pacific coast has yawning beaches defined by jungle-covered cliffs pounded by agitated rollers. This is an isolated coastline, gradually being developed for tourism with a few secluded, upscale properties. Close to the Costa Rican border, the lively little beach town of San Juan del Sur attracts surfers from all over the world.
