Four wild hotels in Nicaragua

We were thrilled to see some of our favourite partners here in San Juan del Sur make the top four wild experieces here in Nicaragua!  Blue over at Rancho Chilamate has been taking care of our guests for years- and Morgans Rock has been providing our guests with excellent care, excursions and meals.  Well done everyone!

Remax San Juan del Sur

The community of Balcones de Majagual has been fortunate enough to be working with the talented Gabriela Castillo of Remax San Juan del Sur Nicaragua for many years.  Gabriela has been a part of our team since the inception, and if you read any review of our community you will find her name mentioned with glowing accolades written afterwards.  Many of our guests inquire about becoming part of the Balcones de Majagual community or the San Juan del Sur area by purchasing their own piece of paradise- and we of course suggest you contact Gabriela and her husband Pedro at Remax San Juan del Sur  for any of your questions.   Their team is informed, professional and knowledgable about both our community and the surrounding area.  We can't say enough good stuff about these guys!
