San Juan del Sur Hotels

San Juan del Sur hotels prove it’s all relative. The small fishing village situated on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua is a destination growing in popularity but still enjoying its lesser-known status and the quiet charm that creates. For its size, there is a surprisingly diverse array of accommodation options, from a dorm-style rooms hostels to inexpensive mid-range hotels, and even several luxury choices. Although options are good, don’t expect the extremely upscale Miami or even luxury digs the country’s southern neighbor, Costa Rica, offers. Nicaragua resorts and hotels are keeping in step though, and they offer some of the most inexpensive beach lodging in Central America.
