The Pacific Marlin neighborhood is located on the northern headland of San Juan del Sur. Numerous luxury homes have been built (40 at our last count) making it one of the most advanced real estate developments on the coast. The development wraps around the lofty “Jesus statue” and continues along a high ridge leading out to the sea, it’s dramatic cliffs rising sheer from the ocean waves.
Given the fabulous ocean view, the tranquility and privacy that come with residing on a hill, and the close proximity to San Juan del Sur, it’s no surprise that Pacific Marlin continues to be one of the most highly sought after locations for beach property on the coast. A mix of Nicaraguans and expatriates have bought here and although Pacific Marlin is considered a ‘real estate development,’ it feel more like an integrated residential neighborhood than a gated community.
Home sites – most 1/4 or 1/5 acre in size – are available with different vistas and aspects. Some perched high above the water on rocky outcrops offering unobstructed views of San Juan del Sur bay and down the coast towards Costa Rica. Others hug the lower terraces closer to the water. Landmark homes are also available, all with quick access into downtown San Juan del Sur.
Hit TV show House Hunters has featured several Pacific Marlin homes in the past few years. Click here to view real estate for sale in Pacific Marlin.
The main (front) entrance to Pacific Marlin is accessed via the Talanguera neighborhood. As you take the main road out of town passing the Uno gas station on your left, cross the bridge and take the first road left, signposted to Playa Maderas, Playa Majagual and Playa Marsella. This is the Chocolata road. Continue along the road and where the paving ends turn left into Talanguera. The road leads to the ocean, curving right to run behind a line of beachfront homes until reaching the entrance to Pacific Marlin at the foot of the headland. If you don’t take the road into Talangera but continue towards the beaches, you’ll notice a second entrance to Pacific Marlin on your left towards the top of a rise. This takes you into the rear part of the neighborhood.
