Casa Pablo

Southern, Rivas, Nicaragua


Accommodates: 6

Bedrooms: 2

Bathrooms: 2


Southern Nicaragua’s Pacific coastline south of San Juan Del Sur is a sleepy, secluded surfers dream. It is here that you will find Casa Pablo, ideally situated just 100 meters from the little known Playa El Yanke (Yankee Beach), but also high enough to give you the perfect vantage point to study the surfing conditions. Playa El Yanke is a well kept secret. Visitors are infrequent, giving guests a sense of privacy and seclusion that is hard to find on such a spectacular and pristine beach.

The house is the perfect private resort to return to after a day of  exploring the area’s surf beaches and sleepy coastal towns. The open air design makes you feel as though you are floating atop the jungle canopy, while offering endless views of the clear blue water, as well as a glimpse of Costa Rica to the south. If you rest by the pool, the waves combined with the call of the tropical birds may lull you into a transcendent relaxation, an ideal personal sanctuary for your own yoga or meditation retreat.

If your group is larger than four, a smaller cabina in the property can be rented as well, giving you the option of a beach getaway for up to six guests. Similar to the main house, the cabina features 180 degree views of this unparalleled paradise.

Note: Rate shown is for 1 bedroom, 1 bath main casa. The small 1 bed, 1 bath cabina can be added for an additional charge of $75/night, $120/night for December Holiday and $105/night for Spring Holiday.

Location and Access

Near: San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Managua International Airport is 2.5 hours to the northeast. Driver is available for airport pickups. Liberia Int'l Airport in Costa Rica is not recommended as the border crossing adds hours.

Access to the house is a 20 to 30 minute drive on a dirt road from the town of San Juan del Sur.


Explore Nicaragua’s stunning Playa El Yanke and fine a true paradise in which to enjoy:

Surfing, Fishing, Horseback riding, Stand up paddleboarding, Hiking, Whale watching, Swimming


The house sits in an ideal spot for surfing that is much less frequented than other known surf spots near San Juan del Sur. However, if you’ve come to surf, whether you’re a beginner or expert, also check out Playa Maderas, Colorado, and Panga Drops beaches. The best time for surfing in Nicaragua is May through early December, when most south swells hit the Pacific coast.

For an unforgettable day trip, try the hiking, swimming, wildlife tours, and more on nearby Ometepe Island, formed by two large volcanoes rising out of Lake Nicaragua. Or take in the stunning scenery of the immediate area on horseback. Arrangements can even be made for horses to pick you up at the house. Whatever your plans or wishes, the caretakers will be happy to introduce you to the best local restaurants and sights. Guests can also arrange for rides to and from the airport, rides around the area, or rides to Ometepe Island.
