Is San Juan del Sur finally coming of age as an important tourism and lifestyle destination? I’ve certainly read enough posts describing the town as ‘formerly a quiet fishing village‘ but rapidly evolving into ‘a real estate investment hub‘… ‘an established residential community‘ … ‘Nicaragua’s primary tourism destination on the beach’ … to realize that the place is attracting more and more attention.
Other signs, beyond the hotels popping up, the new vacation rentals in the hills and the busy schedule of expat events, are a dedicated community newspaper and a recently launched San Juan del Sur lifestyle site, dedicated to keeping visitors and locals up to date with all that is happening. These sites are less about selling real estate or filling hotel rooms, and more about providing a deeper insight into what is going on in town.
They provide an insight into what it’s like to live in San Juan del Sur. The best places to eat. The top things to do in town. Tips on how to learn the local language. Insight into who is making a difference locally. And what volunterring opportunties are out there for people wanting to make a difference. They’re a goldmine of information for anyone interested in San Juan del Sur.
Even if you are not planning a trip in the near future, consider signing up to these sites. You’ll receive a stream of updates on what is happening in town. The information will help you plan a better trip when you do decide to visit. And of course check out our tour page on San Juan del Sur and feel free to contact us at any time. We’re all about putting together custom vacation packages for the independent-minded traveler. And you know, that’s exactly the kind of person San Juan del Sur seems to attract.
