Getting to san juan del sur

Getting to San Juan del Sur is easy thanks to the improved highway from both the capitol of Nicaragua and the border with Costa Rica. The town is a two-hour drive from Managua; one can rent a car at the airport or hop on one of the frequent direct buses straight from the terminal. Slightly more expensive car and truck rentals are also available in San Juan Del Sur.

San Juan Del Sur is about twenty minutes from the border with Costa Rica. The easiest way is to take a tourist bus or private car directly to San Juan Del Sur from Costa Rica. A cheaper option is to go to the border by local bus or taxi and walk across the border and then catch one of the frequent buses or taxis on the Nicaragua side to get to San Juan Del Sur.
