Definitely Won’t Happen
You’ll leave town without drinking the surfing kool-aid.
We’re going to let you in on a little secret. Most people living in San Juan del Sur don’t surf. But if you’re a traveler on holiday, chances are that you’ll at least give it a go one day. The beautiful beaches, warm waves and laid back surf culture are inviting. Some might even call it irresistible. (And even if you never get in the water, you can still follow the surfers guide to a blissful vacation in San Juan del Sur. In fact we recommend it.)
Probably Won’t Happen
You’ll step on a stingray.
Stingrays are common in the Pacific ocean around San Juan del Sur, but you’re unlikely to step on one – especially if you remember to shuffle your feet when you walk in the water. Step on a tail in defense and jab a venomous barb into your foot. Find a bucket of hot water as quickly as possible and plunge your foot in it. The hot water denatures the protein in the poison and eases the pain.
Probably Will Happen
You’ll be tempted to change your return flight.
We’ve seen it again and again. New arrivals say they’re visiting for week and then two weeks later, they’re still here. Or somebody comes for a short vacation, decides to buy real estate, and a year later they’re a resident. Nicaragua has a way of getting under your skin. It has a way of putting life into perspective. You can’t say we didn’t warn you.
Will Definitely Happen
You’ll see a beautiful sunset over the ocean.
There’s something special about a San Juan de Sur sunset. Nicaraguans know it too. Visitors and locals gravitate to the beachfront to take advantage of happy hour specials. Others find elevated vantage points in the hills to take in the scene. And some watch from the water. Time slows a little. Sailboats bob in the bay. Children play in the waves. You’ll definitely experience a beautiful sunset on a visit to San Juan del Sur.
