I'm a former investment banker, fisherman, and full-time backpacker. I love to travel because it lets me approach every moment with child-like wonder.

San Juan del Sur »
San Juan del Sur is a melting pot of surfers, expats, backpackers, luxury getawayers, and locals. The town itself is walkable and curves around a gorgeous, calm cove where sailboats, local fishing skiffs, and the occasional mega-yacht sway to the gentle swells of the Pacific ocean. It is the jumping off point for a half-dozen picturesque beaches, each offering their own activities and unique beauty. Surfing, fishing, turtle watching, drinking, and sunsets are all SJDS specialties. It is not a bad place to get stuck for a few days or months.
