While we like to keep a glass-half-full perspective at San Juan Live, we also know that life isn’t a never-ending happy hour. Nicaragua can be a little rough around the edges and San Juan del Sur has experienced some “growing pains” over the years.
But we think it’s all about your expectations. If you expect the sun to shine 365 days a year, October in San Juan del Sur will disappoint you. If you expect the ocean to always be warm, you’ll be surprised in February when the windy season makes the temperature drop… a little. The power does go out occasionally, but the beach is always open. So if you’re considering a vacation, a wedding, or even a long term relocation to Nicaragua, we suggest you do your homework first.
To help, we’ve curated a shortlist of travel tips from local expats who are knowledgeable about the country and provide trustworthy information.
