Feb 22: San Juan del Sur
Coffee and cookie at Sweet Water Fund, a no profit organization that empowers local women teaching them about nutrition, health, and handcraft: go Cassidy! Then we walk on the beach to the rocks, beautiful view from there. We decide to move to San Juan del Sur in the afternoon. Lunch with delicious lobster and veggies for $9 each at the local restaurant at the end of the beach on the north side. Recommended.
Taxi to Rivas and bus to San Juan. It's so funny the stuff that they try to sell you on the buses: pollo frito, grease stuff, pills for headache, candys, colorful drinks... it's a procession of seller before each trip! See Pictures.
San Juan del Sur is actually better than I expected, not too loud, a little touristy but still Nica, nice long beach enclosed by cliffs at the two ends. We stay at Hospedaje Don Wilfredo, next to beach, slight sea view, room w bath, $12. Wifi and backgammon included! We love it!
Sunset cold swim and pina colada with ceviche on a day bed at a beach bar. Later we walk around town but it's pretty quiet apart from a couple of bars, all the stores close at night.
