We have a client who retired in San Juan Del Sur and he loves the place, the nightlife, the restaurants, and the food. In San Juan Del Sur, everything is close and everybody knows each other. You will see familiar faces walking back and forth on the same street.
A lot of people retire in San Juan Del Sur because they can buy a house just a little outside of the main streets and still be just 5 minutes away to get to the restaurants and bars where the fun is. At the same time, you can still be close to the beaches.
If I were to retire, I would retire in San Juan Del Sur or in a place similar to it. It’s calm, really safe and they have a lot of good food. You can meet expats or tourists from different countries who are really friendly. You can also go surfing in San Juan Del Sur. So for all these reasons, retirement in San Juan Del Sur is really great.
