Don’t You Just Love Good Food?

We love good food at El Pacifico, especially good baking. That’s how we came up with the Accidental Bakery – people discovered that Jennings baked fresh daily, and that they were, well, DELICIOUS! Soon we had people coming from around the neighborhood, then around the town, then we were supplying a local coffee shop. All while making sure our guests and staff had a fresh baked goodie each day. (And btw, Jennings can’t eat gluten… So she comes up with all these recipes and uses Chuck as a tester. So far the combination has been a winner!)

Fishing and Surfing and Hiking, Oh My!

San Juan del Sur has a lot – A LOT – of outdoor activities. Most of life is outdoors here, and you can learn all sorts of new skills or polish your old ones with inexpensive lessons and rentals. While we love our quiet, lazy hammock days, sometimes you just have to get out in the sun and do something! And Nicaragua is a small country, so you can get to a lot of cool places in a short amount of time. Fish, take a sunset booze cruise, walk a deserted beach, surf, hike a volcano (or two) on Ometepe, visit Vulcan Masaya and see the lava flow, SCUBA dive, spear fish… So much to do, you may have to extend your stay!
