I have visited San Juan Del Sur multiple times and at stayed several different accommodations, but Casa Ariki is definitely my favorite. The rooms are cozy and the balcony and lobby provide great places to spend down-time. It is a short walk from the beach and near many great places to shop and eat. Baldo and Sarah (the owners) are...
