Where to go in Nicaragua?


My husband are I are planning our 3rd trip to Costa Rica but now I'm thinking I would rather go to Nicaragua. We are clueless as far as where to go so any advice would be appreciated. Our requirements as fairly simple: we don't want to be in a big city, we would also prefer to be away from any overbuilt areas. We like to be close to the ocean and the jungle. Wildlife is a huge draw for us.

Is there a small town that offers good food, the ocean and the chance to spot wildlife?

Can't wait to get there!!

While San Juan del Sur isn't the best beach, it is the drop off point to many great and unspoiled beaches both north and south of the town itself. enough good restaurants to eat somewhere different for at least a week.

check out Cornerstone management group on line for accomodations. they have condos and private homes with killer views. Lots wild life around just off the beaten path.

Have a great trip. Lived here for 7 years in Granada and love it.
