For the general population, a traditional part of Easter is visiting different resorts in all parts of the country. The inhabitants of cities as in rural areas go to the sea or the beaches during one or more days, Lake Nicaragua, lagoons, or different rivers. It is understandable, considering the tropical summer and extreme heat this time of year.
Usually, especially in the region of the Pacific coast, cities are seen quite empty during the last days of Holy Week. However, generally unpopulated coastal towns are invaded by thousands of vacationers.
The small town of San Juan del Sur is one of the favorite places for Nicaraguan youth to "bacanalear" at Easter. Thousands of visitors from across the country come from the early days.
The hotels are crammed with guests and locals find a good opportunity to get money renting out rooms in their homes, or the whole house.The biggest parties are held on Wednesday.
Along the coast and in other parts of the town, bars and restaurants are filled with visitors and are installed on the beach clubs and scenarios where national and international artists perform. At night (and in the day), there is waste of beer, rum and Latin party. On the day, the beach is host of contests and sports competitions.
Although the bacanal is on a smaller scale, well-visited beaches are also Poneloya Jiquilillo and Miramar.
