San Juan del Sur is a small and very nice village placed inside the bay with the same name that overlooks the pacific ocean 60 kms west of Granada and 24 Kms from Costa Rica's frontier.
Enclosed by prehistoric volcanic hills, San Juan del Sur is characterized by a very broad beach of white sand, that is 3 Kms long, and with very good climate for the whole part of the year it permits to practise surf, underwater fishing, deep sea fishing and bathing.
Those who like walk around San Juan del Sur will find scenic vistas and wildlife sightings, the view from the top of the sorrounding hills is breathtaking.
A short walk up the bluff on the south side of San Juan del Sur's beach takes you to the lighthouse and William Walker's ruined fort. On the trail you'll see few people, out many fabulous views-gaze upon the far-off.
