San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere are vacation rentals in Nicaragua for every type of traveler and every type of budget.  
 
I have spent much of the day, today actually, researching the cost of vacation rentals in San Juan del Sur as I have a few friends visiting from the States next month.  In San Juan del Sur you can rent an entire home that sleeps 5+ people from around US $380 / week, just a short walk from the beach.  You can also rent an ultra-modern mansion with an infinity pool, car and private driver for $7,000 / week.  Of course there is everything in-between as well.  We decided on a very modern, 2-bedroom condo with an infinity pool and direct beach access for a little over $200 / night.  If you rent by the month, you will of course will find  significantly lower rates.  
 
Please keep in mind that these costs are for San Juan del Sur, which is one of most expensive areas in Nicaragua.  There are beautiful (and very affordable) coastal vacation rentals all along the Pacific Coast.  You can also rent colonial homes in Granada and Leon, villas in the rainforest, cabañas on a coffee farm, etc.  Rental costs will vary from place to place.

Colonial home in Granada, NIcaragua – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThe cost to rent a vacation house in Granada is US $500 to $800 per week. These houses are furnished, include all utilities, and a maid who comes in to clean the house. Some companies may charge extra for the maid. 
 
For $500 a week, you get a very nicely finished colonial house with a lot of details, furnished, and with amenities such as the Internet, water heaters, swimming pool, and a garden. This is a two or three-bedroom house in a good private location. 
 
For $700 a week, you get a three-bedroom house.
 
For $800 a week, you can get a very nice three to four-bedroom house with a big swimming pool. 
 
When searching for a house through Airbnb, make sure to review all the different options because the market and the offerings for vacation houses are growing. You can find good deals with Airbnb.
 
The prices of vacation houses will be a little less in Managua. Rivas and San Juan del Sur are more expensive. Granada is the middle ground for cost of vacation houses.
