There’s plenty of competition in San Juan del Sur, and most operators offer similar deals at similar prices. It’s easy to organize trips via accommodation – if in doubt, try Casa Oro, Hostel PachaMama, Casa 28 or La Casa Feliz – but several other tour and rental companies are worth considering.
Arena Caliente 8815 3247, arenacaliente.com. Friendly place offering surf lessons, rental and transport, plus fishing trips. Lodging and packages can also be arranged.
Neptune Watersports 2568 2752, neptunenicadiving.com. San Juan’s diving specialists can take you below the waves (US$85 for a two-tank dive) and also run fishing trips.
San Juan del Sur Surf and Sport 2568 2022, sanjuandelsursurf.com. This long-standing local operator offers fishing trips, tours to Refugio La Flor (US$30), ATV rentals and a nearby canopy tour plus – of course – surf rental and lessons.
