San Juan del Sur Nicaragua is a municipality and coastal town on the Pacific Ocean, in the Rivas department in south-west Nicaragua. It is located 140 kilometers (87 miles) south of Managua. San Juan del Sur is popular among surfers and is a vacation spot for many Nicaraguan families and foreign tourists.
Its population is approximately 15,553, consisting largely of families engaged in fishing or the tourism industry and foreigners from the United States, Canada and Europe. While the local economy was, for many years, based on fishing and shipping, it has shifted towards tourism in the last 20 years. In October 2002, to mark the city’s 150th anniversary, it was formally designated the “Port of San Juan del Sur” and a “Tourism City of Nicaragua.”
