San Juan Del Sur
San Juan del Sur has a rich history from the 1600’s when the Spanish conquistadors used it as a safe anchorage to today as a Californian surf vibe, the area is spotted with many hidden beaches along the coast (some which were used in Survivor seasons 2010,2011 and 2015.) rich in sea and shore life. A great selection of restaurants and shops are throughout this hub.
It has a population of about 16,000 is about 1 ½ hours from Casa Castillo but well worth the trip.
From fishing to surfing, horseback riding to off road motorcycle trail riding the adventure is at your fingertips. If you just like to watch this is a great place to take in the sights of San Juan and maybe be fortunate to catch an international surfing competition.
A statue of Christ of the Mercy adorns the northern hillside of the bay that is familiar to the Brazilian beach in Rio.
