About San Juan Del Sur

You cannot miss the main attraction of Nicaragua's newest cruise call San Juan del Sur - the pure white sand beach stretches for more than two miles. It is perfect for swimming or for just admiring from one of the cafes along the front.

The views are equally spectacular over to the mountains and forests which are the backdrop to this ultra laid-back town (and former pirate haunt) on Nicaragua's Pacific coast, just 15 miles from the border with Costa Rica.

Although there are the ruins of the William Walker fortress to visit, this is a place really made just for chilling out. For sightseeing, you need to take the tour to Granada, one of the country's most important cities.

On the shores of 92-mile long Lake Nicaragua and overlooked by the Mombacho volcano, Granada was founded by the conquistadors in 1524 making it the country's oldest Spanish city. Nicknamed "La Gran Sultana" (the Great Sultan) after its Moorish namesake in Spain, its colonial style cathedral and plaza plus a lovely park (Colon) make it a hugely enjoyable place to walk.
