San Juan del Sur is a small tourist town in southwestern Nicaragua. With 22 nearby beaches, and 5 surfable beaches within 20-30 minutes, it’s become a hotspot for families, backpackers, surfers, and retirees. Great food can be had in town for half (or less) of a comparable “first world” meal, fresh seafood comes into the port daily, adventure seekers can try zip lines and horseback riding and volcano hikes, and the views are amazing from any number of locations. Take a boat trip, walk around the small town, journey to a nearby beach – which you just might have all to yourself.
El Pacifico Hotel is located in a residential neighborhood on the north side of the bay, a 15 min walk from town and a 15 min walk to the famous statue of Jesus overlooking San Juan Bay. We offer quiet and relaxation, a great vibe, cold drinks, hot breakfast, security, a crystal clear pool, and plenty of hammocks… Just the place to be *near* town without having to listen to it all night long!
Hola! Thank you for visiting our new website. We’re obviously still under construction, but we wanted to have a way for you to find us while we’re in transition – so here’s our very basic “entry level” site. ?
Great things are happening at El Pacifico! Here’s the short list, and I’ll blog more as time allows. (Turns out that buying a hotel is a lot of work!)
- Bar is open for business, and we’re getting a lot of local and walk-in traffic as well as from our guests. No big parties, just great laughs and cold beer (or other adult beverages!).
- The restaurant is also open – we have a full menu for breakfast in addition to our fresh-baked-daily continental. Lunch and dinner are “by request” and we’re serving quite a few each week. The last couple of Sundays we’ve had a group dinner, which has been great fun!
- Activities are starting to ramp up: Sunday dinner and game nights, plus a weekly writers workshop.
- Painting has started now that the wind has died. Stay tuned for some before and after photos!
Thanks for your support – we hope you’ll come visit us in beautiful San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua!
Most of our guests are from out of Nicaragua, so like to help them find things to do around the San Juan del Sur. Sure, there are some great tour guides around that can give you an amazing day… But part of the fun of coming to Nicaragua is the sense of adventure, right?

Semana Santa, or Holy Week, was NUTS. We had dozens of guests in a 10 day period, town was crazy, the beach was trashed… For some, it’s why they come to San Juan del Sur. For us, we were ecstatic when it was over! (We did learn some business things for holidays in the future, through, as they say, the School of Hard Knocks!)
