natural life

. The walk up to the cross overlooking the harbor is an arduous 20-minute trek, but the vistas of the harbor are spectacular. A zip-line canopy tour can get you up into the treetops, and spider monkeys and other natural life abound in the region. There are dozens of spectacular remote beaches both north and south of downtown where pounding surf and dramatic rock formations await the intrepid shutterbug. Do Hang out, talk, drink, eat. It is very laid-back here. Move a bit and you might find a good beach to surf. Rent bicycles and explore the smaller beaches to the south and north. They cost $5 per day to rent, but are not in very good condition. Learn Spanish in the local Spanish schools in town, Spanish Ya, Nica Spanish and San Juan del Sur Spanish school. All of them with very competitive prices and good experience in organizing the Spanish programs. Take a day trip water taxi to Playa Madera, north of San Juan de Sur for $8. Sign up at the stand in front of Hotel Estrella. It leaves about 10AM and returns at 4PM. The boat ride is about half an hour. Playa Madera can also be accessed via taxi, that costs around $10-$15 for two people. The drive can be difficult, and you may encounter hills where your cab driver will ask you to get out and walk up the hill. In addition to the beaches to the north of San Jan del Sur, there are some great beaches to the south (including Playa del Coco), which are less accessible but afford more privacy. There is a light house that no longer resembles a light house. But the point is not the destination, rather the journey. The view of the coast and the bay of San Jan de Sur is amazing. To get there, pass through the small port entrance, find the overseer of the property where the light house is and convince him you won't take pictures of anything. If he lets you pass, keep your promise. *'''Beach Front Rentals''' in San Juan Del Sur offers ATV guided tours through the mountains and to the beaches.

San Juan del Sur

'''San Juan del Sur''' is a municipality and coastal town on the Pacific Ocean, in the Rivas (Rivas (department)) department (Departments of Nicaragua) in south-west Nicaragua. It is located 140 kilometers (87 miles) south of Managua. San Juan del Sur is popular among surfers and is a vacation spot for many Nicaraguan families and foreign tourists.

Its population is approximately 15,553, consisting largely of families engaged in fishing or the tourism industry and foreigners from the United States, Canada and Europe. While the local economy was, for many years, based on fishing and shipping, it has shifted towards tourism in the last 20 years. In October 2002, to mark the city's 150th anniversary, it was formally designated the "Port of San Juan del Sur" and a "Tourism City of Nicaragua." first Bayardo last Romero title San Juan del Sur Celebrates 490 Yrs. of its Discovery, 160 Years as a City and 10 Years as an Official Tourism City date January 2012 work Del Sur News url http: delsurnewsonline.com 6488 san-juan-del-sur-celebra-490-anos

San Juan del Sur, set beside a crescent-shaped bay, was a popular resting place for gold prospectors headed to California in the 1850s. Correspondingly, San Juan del Sur served as a hub for Cornelius Vanderbilt Lines (Cornelius_Vanderbilt#Oceangoing_steamship_lines).

A statue of the Christ of the Mercy sits above town on the northern end of the bay.

The town is near the site of the filming of ''Survivor: Nicaragua'' and ''Survivor: Redemption Island''. The seasons aired in 2010 and 2011 respectively. The current Survivor season ''Survivor: San Juan del Sur'' was also filmed there. http: insidetv.ew.com 2014 05 21 survivor-san-juan-del-sur-blood-vs-water-jeff-probst It will also be the location for ''Survivor: Worlds Apart''
