I recently started a Central American tour in San Juan del Sur and had the pleasure of dining at the Iguana Bar for my first night in Nicaragua. The wait staff was friendly, the food was tasty.

Had a grilled cheese sandwiches and beers on a hot day on New Year's Eve in the afternoon. Very pleasant, fun atmosphere. Service was very good and we enjoyed the music. Great view of the ocean!

Happy Hour is 2-7PM and 2 for 1 drinks! YUM. Also, great wings! The beach is very wet so go here, grab a lawn chair and some drinks to tan/hang out on the beach!

Been to the iguana bar a couple of times now for drinks. The upstairs bar is right on the beach and offers a great a beautiful spot to watch the sunset. While they don't have a happy hour, prices are pretty reasonable (big glass of wine $70 cords).

We stopped here a couple of times, not really sure why we went multiple times because it was really nothing special. Got a cheeseburger and the patty was so dry and there was way too many onions. The fries were good though. Service was hit and miss. The guy the first time was nice enough, but we had a woman... More
