La Posada Azul

NIC_SanJuanDelSur_LaPosadaAzul_HotelOwned

Homely, quaint guesthouse in a traditional wooden house with an ideal location in San Juan del Sur and a profusion of beautiful folk art.

The quaint and charming La Posada Azul has an ideal location at the heart of town just a block from the beach. Converted from a traditional Caribbean-style wooden house, it is a haven of homeliness with an abundance of inviting relaxation areas and lovely, airy verandas cooled by ceiling fans.

Colourful folk art and local textiles predominate throughout the reception areas and the lovely, cosy guest rooms. There is a courtyard filled with bougainvillea and tropical greenery, a swimming pool and a palapa-style bar, operating on an honestly system that exemplifies the hotel’s trusting and friendly approach. There is no restaurant (although there are plenty of options close by), but the helpful staff can prepare picnic lunches and arrange a variety of excursions.
