SJDS is a small beach town popular with backpackers. The main beach of the town is quite dirty. There are better beaches away from the town but you would need a taxi to reach them, you would need to research which ones are popular. There is zip lining nearby but I have not done it there.

Depending how much time you have in port I would recommend you try and find a tour to take you to either Granada (cute colonial town), Masaya (volcano) or Ometepe islands.

I have been there both on land and via a cruise. Recently on our cruise the tendering process (NCLStar) was so laborious that people were waiting for more than 4 hours to get ashore so you would need to be careful with a private tour. The ship excursions were more than an hour late getting back.

There is a walk up to the j.c statute, just double check safety beforehand, things seemed ok on our recent visit but it has had some issues in years gone by (the town not the walk necessarily).

We very much enjoyed the "Amayo Hacienda Experience with Lunch" booked with the ship. :D

We loved the town. Make sure to buy some cashews from street venders walking around. The people were very nice. A lot of repetitious souvenirs. Just seem to be a lot of hikers and a lotta hostels in town. It was fun to just sit and watch the people going about.

When you cruise out of Port make sure you watch outside there’s lots of turtles and dolphins.i spent two days on my balcony watching.it was amazing
