San Juan del sur


My husband and I are planning a trip to Nicaragua in early August and would like to go on the Sailing boat in SJDS, any suggestions how early I should book and how?

I am also clueless where to stay...I was opting for Pelican Eyes but seems a bit high on the price...we just want a nice Clean place to stay with A/C hot water, tv, generator in case power goes out, and good food...any suggestions.

Thanks in advance,

Hey there !

You can book the sailboat day trip thru the website of Pelican Eyes, for early August, would do so now.

Check out www.villasdepalermo.com, brand new, lovely hillside casitas with wonderful views and beautiful peace and quiet. About $109 a night.

If want ot be in the thick of things, choose the Villa Isabella, clean, cool and walking distance in town, the owners are ex-pats, very helpful and know all about the area.

Enjoy !

The last time in SJDS I stayed at Pelican Eyes, but it was a bit pricey, and up the hill from town. Previously, I had stayed at Hotel Casablanca, which was right on the beach, in the honeymoon suite for about $80 a night. It had a neat balcony right over the street on the beach. The other rooms were cheaper, but this was 3 years ago. It is older and not nearly as nice as PE, but more in town and had all the amenities you seek. They don't have a restaurant, but Ricardo's is right down the street.

The town has a website, which has link to 6 or 7 hotels, and other things to do, which you can probably google up. I don't know whether the posting rules would allow me to send a link, so I'll err on the side of caution.

I agree, book the boat at Pelican Eyes now, and yes they are probably the highest rates in town. Villas de Palermo is awesome and such a great deal for the price. I have stayed at both places, and highley recommend Villas de Palermo.
