San Juan del Sur, Rivas Department
This is a Dormatory connected to a main house on the Ocean Front. At almost 100 ft above sea level the view of the coast line is spectacular and relaxing. The setting is a short walk to the waters edge where you can swim, surf, fish or just soak up the good weather. Hiking around the Headlands at low tide is an adventure, exploring the tidel pools and cliff caves. Also nearby is horse back riding and lots of other activities for fun.

Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in February 2017

The owner Calvin is a great guy and he can help you with any activity you want to partake in the San Juan del Sur area. Right at the beach (Playa El Remanso where you'll be staying) you can surf, SUP, skin dive, fish, and explore the coastline. For you surfers, this is a no-frills bunk bed type of place. The surf right in front is great for beginners and can be fun for surfers with more experience too. If you are a more advanced surfer, if you ask Calvin real nice, he might let you in on a secret spot just a few minutes away from his place that is a more challenging surf break with absolutely no crowds!

While a taxi can bring you to Calvin's place, if you are in a group, I would recommend renting a car so you can go into town (San Juan del Sur) and enjoy the nightlife there.

We brought groceries with us so we could have breakfast and lunch at Calvin's place, then we went into town in the evenings to enjoy the action in town. But it sure is nice to not have to stay...

Management response:

Thanks Mike. I always enjoy your stay at the Casa Surfistasnica and I really enjoyed your BBQ (*:

Still, if you have to have some noise, Town is only ten minutes away.
