In & around Popoyo

Hot Springs

Big day of surfing? What better way to unwind from a day in the sun and surf than to bath all the aching muscles in a natural hot spring. A natually rejuvinating experience, the hot springs offer that little bit of extra relaxation in a holiday where getting back to ones self is the goal.



Keen for some underwater adventures? Directly on our doorstep is Magnific Rock, a long rocky ledge, home to the local lobsters and turtles, along with eels and schools of sting rays.



Swells down? Then what about a game of golf on the superb 18 hole Iguana Beach Club golf course? When the surf is down, there are always a myriad of ways to pass the time until the next swell hits, and this golf course will offer you the perfect way to enjoy the passing of a day in paradise. With an impecably well maintained course and equipment for hire, there is no need to feel guilty about relaxing on a hammock, there is always something physical to do in Popoyo.


San Juan del Sur

San Juan Del Sur is a tourist hotspot only 1 hour from Popoyo by car. With a healthy dose of bars and restaurants, as well as hipster totting backpackers, San Juan is a great place to get your party on for a night. We can offer transportation to and from San Juan Del Sur, for more information contact us.


Turtle Reserve

Punta Teonoste has a Sea Turtle Conservation Nursery, watch sea turtles lay their eggs under the full moon at Playa Teonoste. These eggs are protected so that the sea turtles now endangered can repopulate. Turtle reserve tours can be arranged at Magnific Rock.


Horseback Riding

With so many miles of beach stretching on either side of Magnific Rock, horse riding seems like the most appropriate way of viewing the coastline. For a romantic gallop on a honeymoon or a fun paced stride with a group of friends, horse riding along Popoyo's beaches is a definite highlight and a must do whilst in Popoyo.
