San Juan del Sur

Day fourteen, we woke up and headed out to grab a breakfast of eggs, rice and beans, plantains, and yogurt.

image

I also ordered a tasty watermelon drink.

image

There are great deals at the markets, so I bought a sun dress for $8 and a few items for my friends.

image

Mick got a great haircut for $20.

image

While we waited for the haircut, a guy selling puppies showed up. Tempting but no.

image

I bought an inexpensive swimsuit and we hit the beach from there.

image

There was a festival for John the Baptist going on in the streets.

image

Apparently the festival goes on for the entire month of June.

image

A beauty contest was also going on, and the announcer and the music made it hard to miss.

image

It was Sunday so the church step was a good place to rest.

image

Because of the festivities it was loud in the streets and I had some trouble falling asleep that night.

image

San Juan del Sur is not as tranquil as Tambor, but it has its own appeal, particularly for surfers.

image

And back in the day, Mark Twain was known to vacation there.
