If you are looking for a great day trip to do in the San Juan Del Sur / Playa Maderas area, I would highly recommend the Catamaran Cruise. I joined a group of travelers at Maderas Village and we took a taxi into town. After a short water taxi ride, we jumped aboard Nicaragua Sail and Surf‘s Catamaran.
It was a great day sailing along the coast savoring the views including Playa Maderas where I have been staying over the past few days. I met a group of great people from Canada and the USA as we sipped on Mai Tai cocktails and Tona beers.
We anchored off an idyllic private beach. We swam with pool noodles, swam to the beach and enjoyed the private, quiet space. One of my favourite things to do is to sit on the swim platform and dangle my feet into the cool ocean looking out at the spectacular view. Once we were back aboard, we snacked on a delicious lunch of ceviche, guacamole, salsa and tortilla chips.
As the sun set and painted the sky shades of orange, pink and purple we were surrounded by whales and speckled dolphins. The crew had also set up a fishing rod which added to the excitement when a sizable fish was caught.
I absolutely loved the cruise and think it is well worth it for $60 all you can drink and eat while sailing in one of the most beautiful locations I have visited before.
I love Nica.
