best way to do a Nica trip« on: May 18 2010 18:05:00 »
Just wondering what the best way to travel the country is. I may be going there with a couple of buddies for 2 or so weeks in August. I would like to do a bit of exploring, surfing further south as well as getting to some spots up north. I do not know much. Is is safe to cruise the country by car? can I get a bus from the San Juan del Sur area to up north? Which option is better? Does anyone know of some cheap places to stay in the San Juan del Sur area? A lot of the bigger name camps seem pricey. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a bunch

I am writing you from Nicaragua.
First about travel by car, I think you could be safe however I recommed you talk with locals before go some parts. A few moths ago there were some problems near San Juan, now everything is right. You could travel by bus, for example the cost from Rivas to San Juan del Sur is 15 cordobas, Managua Rivas 40 cordobas, San Juan del Sur to Playa Maderas 5$.
There are a lot of places in San Juan del Sur to stay. Prices are around 10$ or less. I was in Casa Romano, 10$, if you looking for better price Posada Puesta del Sol 14$ two people, or Sunrise beach 14$ two persons.
You could rent board for 10$ all the day. I give a contact, his name is Gerardo and he is friendly and he could help with surf. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need more information just tell me what do you need.
