Long curved beach at San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur is a popular travel and vacation destination on Nicaragua's Pacific coast. The town was founded in 1851 during California Gold Rush as a part of a transit route between the east and west coasts of the US. From the 1940’s until the late 1990’s, San Juan was one of Nicaragua’s largest shipping ports. Today the town is more a sleepy touristic destination and a good starting point for tours to the volcano areas.
