Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa
Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa is located on a hillside overlooking the bay in the charming fishing village of San Juan del Sur, on the stunning Pacific Coast of Nicaragua. Pelican Eyes offers a distinctive blend of gracious hospitality, local charm, unique architectural style and commitment to the community, all in a unique setting that blends harmoniously with the natural environment and local culture. It is the perfect setting for those looking for an exceptional experience.
Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa is divided in two phases connected by a system of brick stairways and a town road. It has 50 homes and hotel rooms with both ocean and garden views divided between. Additionally, the resort has three infinity pools, two restaurants offering Nicaraguan and international cuisine, a 41 foot sailboat with capacity for up to 20 people, spa services at Tranquila Day Spa.
Centrally located near many of the country’s most fascinating tourist destinations, San Juan del Sur is two and a half hours south of Managua, an hour and a half south of the historic colonial town of Granada, thirty minutes north of the Costa Rican border, and less than twenty minutes from the shores of Lake Nicaragua.
Downtown San Juan Del Sur is the definition of colorful. Painted shops and murals dot the streets. Beach-side restaurants and bars beckon. Characters sit on stoops and sip coffee in cafes. You may even see a parrot dancing on wrought-iron gate or a howler monkey out for a stroll.
Within distance of town waves crest and lift seasoned veterans and novices alike from May through early December – when the most south swells hit Nicaragua’s Pacific coast. The most popular and easily accessible surfing beach close to town is Playa Maderas – just a 20-minute excursion from Pelican Eyes Resort & Spa.
Flights to/from Managua Airport (MGA) are NOT included, but don't worry we will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. We are more than happy to help you find good flights; we have a few websites we recommend as well as some travel agencies to help you find the flight that works best for you.
