Arte-Sano is where hotel meets house. We are located on the point between two of the best beaches in San Juan Del Sur (Playa Maderas & Playa Marsella) and offer the highest level of comfort and luxury ...More accommodations north of town while giving you access to the adventure travel you are seeking. We have a restaurant and bar on-site and provide a creative and healthy environment for those that are not willing to compromise on comfort. We also have an amazing expresso machine and wonderful nicaraguan coffee for those who love their coffee in the morning. We also have a full assortment of wine including Rose for those who like to enjoy the afternoon by the pool. The Arte-Sano villa can arrange surf lessons, yoga, horseback riding, or a sail on a luxury catamaran. If you are coming to Nicaragua to enjoy the Souther Nicaraguan coastline, this is the place for you. Less
