If you’re looking for an inexpensive entertainment option that promises action and an authentic travel experience, consider catching a sporting event at the “parque deportivo”, sports park.
Located across from the beach on the southern end in between Hostel Esperanza and the Barrio Planta Project, the sports park is San Juan del Sur’s only true sports facility. With the help of donors, it was built and is managed by Comunidad Connect.
Coconut venders sit outside the entrance gates and fisherman ride past on bicycles carrying their catch of the day. Children from Barrio Planta Project classes peak through classroom windows when sports are in play. And the teal blue bay is an ever present backdrop.
