Stay away from surf ranch in San juan del sur
The surf ranch is not for surfers...unless your goal is to stand around the bar and get drunk...they nickel and dime you to death. make it hard to use the shuttle to Remanso. Hard to use one of their really, really banged up boards, etc. We ended up getting our own boards and using the taxi service...among many, many, many other issues...but we came to surf and in the end they didn't really fit the bill for that.
I guess if you want to travel to Nicaragua for a half-assed skate park, it would be an ok place to stay. Owner and front desk staff are not to be trusted. Beware.
Security at the place is good, your stuff is safe. Rooms are 4 walls and the roof doesn't leak, but the doors do. There's a chlorinated pool so that's about the only decent thing there.
Oh, don't be fooled...the air pad drop isn't operational and hasn't been for some time. Employees said it is permanently broken.
