Beachfront Bars and Restaurants on the bay in San Juan Del Sur
San Juan Del Sur is Nicaragua's Premier destination on the Pacific. The colorful buildings and gorgeous beaches make it an ideal stopover on your way through Nicaragua. Flying into Managua International Airport, take the local "chicken bus" to get to San Juan Del Sur. In Nicaragua they use re-painted old school buses for their public transport, you'll be amongst almost entirely locals, its cheaper and more fun.

An empty right barrel at Maderas
Central America is full of empty beaches with great waves, you just have to know where they are. While travelling Nicaragua recently I booked a shuttle from my hostel in San Juan Del Sur to Maderas Beach. The posted surf report said 4-6 foot waves with light offshore winds. Not sure exactly what to expect, I arrived to find exactly that, perfect 4-6 foot barrels with a light offshore wind, and for some reason the water was empty.
