This photo was taken from the summit of an ocean cliff in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. The view below is of the half moon cove that provides shelter for fishing boats and beach goers alike.
My compadre Nils, a native of Nicaragua working in Costa Rica who I met while crossing into Nicaragua, persuaded me to take a detour to SJDS on my way to Granada.
With its serene ocean view and party atmosphere, this friendly ocean town was definitely worth the stop. Nils showed me the ropes of the town and led me to this spot, the colossal 24 meter Christ of Mercy statue, 134 meters above the ocean on display for the town below.
