No question, San Juan del Sur is photogenic. So whether you’re after an awesome selfie to make your friends jealous, or just a picture to capture the memory of your adventure in Nicaragua, here are a few of our favorite photo spots.
1. A Birds-eye View from the Jesus Statue
This is the best opportunity for a 360 degree of San Juan del Sur. Standing almost 80 feet tall (24 meters), it’s the one of the tallest 10 Jesus statues on the planet. And it’s perfectly positioned atop the rocky ledge of Pacific Marlin. Believe it or not, it’s only a 45 minute walk from town. Visiting hours are 8am – 5pm and the entrance fee is $1 for Nationals and $2 for tourists. The photo of yourself and your friends towering above Nicaragua’s most picturesque bay…priceless.
