Around San Juan del Sur

San Juan del Sur is home to several beautiful beaches with great surf breaks. If you don’t have a car, one of the best ways to get to the various beaches is through a Cooperativo de Turismo. There is one next to Hotel Joxi, one and a half blocks west of the Municipal Market. This service will find you a taxi for the best price and can also find other people to split the cost of the ride with you. There are also shuttle services that run from Casa Oro, with three departures daily to Playa Maderas, Playa Majagual, Playa Matilda and Playa Marsella.
