Playa Yankee

The Orquidea stands tall above Playa Yankee, widely recognized as one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Nicaragua. The least busy of all the beaches in the San Juan del Sur area, visitors are likely to have the vast expanse of sand and surf to themselves. This natural and undeveloped gem, an exquisite example of the raw and wild beauty of this country, is also a top surfing spot sought after by beginners and experts alike. On the horizon to the south stand the majestic and untouched peaks of Parque Nacional de Santa Rosa in Costa Rica. Accessible via a short four-wheeler ride or walk, Playa Yankee is the perfect location for a peaceful, sunny day with friends and family.
