Our family (5 in total) wanted an adventure travel destination so we choose Nicaragua. Casa Bahia Azul was awesome! Talk about a million dollar view and breathtaking sunsets, WOW! Our kids ages 9yrs, 12yrs and 14yrs had a blast! The house was very nice and has a modern design. Everything was well maintained and the beds were surprisingly comfortable. (I am kind of picky on beds). The house also came with three surfboards, snorkeling equipment and mountain bikes complimentary. We used these items almost every day. There are lots of hills around so if you take off down the mountain on the bike make sure your ready for the ride back up. The pool was great and we played in it allot. Make sure you ask the caretaker to give you the raft. Floating in the pool and watching the sunset is priceless! We rented a 4x4 in San Juan and went to town for a few dinners and also explored a few of the other surrounding beaches. There are son many hidden jewels in the area, we will be back again to explore the area more. The house was centrally located and private. We liked going to town but also liked going back to the house and its quiet atmosphere. The caretaker Alfonzo and his wife were very friendly. They don't speak english though. I was able to communicate using sign language and a little Spanish i learned in High school. His wife cooked for us two nights. I wouldn't say she is a chef but she did cook well and it was nice to have them there taking care of us. The power and internet went out a few times but as we talked to people around town, this seems to happen everywhere in Nicaragua. I would bring a flashlight when you come. We booked a few excursions with San Juan del Sur Surf and Sport and the owner Dario was a really cool guy and made us feel very taken care of for sure. I recommend the fishing trip. We caught 15 fish the day we went out! All in all we loved our stay at Casa Bahia Azul and would recommend it to anyone. We will be sure to stay there again we we return to Nicaragua.
