A Surfers Sunset at Playa Maderas
For those looking for solace from the Sunday Funday backpacker bar crawl in San Juan Del Sur, Playa Maderas is a close (but bumpy) 4-wheel-drive ride north. The rolling beach-break waves are great for beginner surf lessons, and further out, for those who are more advanced. Flanking either side of the beachfront Tres Hermanos hostel/bar/restaurant is more tranquil beach space for enjoying the scenery, especially the sunset.
