San Juan del Sur
Undiscovered Nicaragua

(Kassi Miller)
We say a sad goodbye to our new friends at La Omaja and set out on the ferry once again for the mainland. There isn't too much confusion about our tickets this time and we find ourselves driving in to San Juan del Sur in under an hour. SJDS is the surfing mecca of Central America and I can see why. Perfect, white sand beaches, funky little town, nice locals and cheap everything! Where we're staying isn't in that category though (cheap). Morgan's Rock is a few beaches north of SJDS, probably the most beautiful and exclusive property in the country. We offer this hotel in our Adventure Life trips and I want to check it out to see if it's everything it claims to be. It is, and more so. Each couple has their own cabaña overlooking the most pristine beach imaginable. The cabaña itself is one of the more impressive designs I've ever seen - local woods, metals and craftsmanship. Even though this is a luxury property, the owners have created a truly eco-concious lodge. That's not just lip service. A lot of thought has gone into the design and layout of the cabins and main lodge. We're only here for a night, so we relax on the beach and enjoy swimming and exploring. It's one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen and the food was just amazing. I've rarely felt so pampered in my life as the one night we spend at Morgan's Rock. Just writing this makes me want to go back!
