San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua
Updated: Dec 7, 2020
Our goal for the next day was San Juan del Sur, an oceanside town near the Costa Rican border and not too far away from Granada. We ended up staying in a great resort outside the little community.
We spent a couple hours cooling in the pool waiting for official check-in, then cooled down in the AC and watched the rain.
Later the three of us took a free shuttle to the sleepy downtown to meet up with some other travelers. At the bar, Adrian and Andrea from Germany were waiting, as well as Maryna and Paul from Australia, along with my Dutch friend Bas I'd run into in Granada. We were all on the same sailing of the Stahlratte and spent the evening talking about travels and life on the road.

The beaches of the town were littered with boats from a recent hurricane, and some repairs to shops and restaurants were underway. I liked San Juan and if I had to do it over again I'd spend two days in Granada and 2 or 3 in San Juan del Sur.
