The Emerald Coast

It is in the country’s southwestern reaches along an exquisite 30-mile stretch of Pacific shoreline dotted with pristine jungles, rising cliffs, charming fishing villages, and sandy beaches that Nicaragua shines brightest. This blossoming area has become known as Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast and is quickly becoming labeled around the world as the Destination of the Future.

Stretching from the beaches around San Juan del Sur in the south all the way to the surfers' paradise of Popoyo and Astillero in the north, the spectacular beauty and pristine condition of Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast make it the epicenter of the country’s coastal tourism. An endless array of fun and adventure awaits, centered on beaches, coves, and sparkling blue bays with a magical variety of landscapes, each lovelier than the one preceding it.
