Beach Day

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

This will be a short report, as there’s not much to say when you spend the day hanging out in a beach town. We hiked to the lookout above town which is adorned by a 4 story Jesus Cristo statue. It is really warm here during the day, so a morning hike is the best option.


Good morning!

We could see up and down the coast and down onto the beautiful village of San Juan del Sur. Most of the hike is through a very swanky neighborhood and at the top there is a guard who collects $2 per person to enter the site. Under the statue is a church.

When we got back to the hotel we enjoyed another Nicaraguan breakfast, though this one did not compare to the others we’ve had. After some pool time, a wander through town, a run for Steve, and then a few beers, it was time for a nap. Exciting huh?

Tonight the beach bars and restaurants are packed and the music is pounding.

Sam keeps asking, “where did all these people come from?” The answer for the most part is Managua. San Juan del Sur is the getaway and party location for the Nicaraguans. We’ve got a front row seat.

Tomorrow we attempt surfing. Should be interesting…
