Places to Explore on Catamaran in Nicaragua

A catamaran offers everything you love about boating, and takes away everything you don’t. Traveling by catamaran boat really is the perfect idea, whether you want to go out just for the morning, spend all day at sea, or leave right in time to see a perfect sunset. Here are only a few of the reasons it is going to be amazing to spend time out on a catamaran:

#1 Catamarans have extra deck space

Because of the way catamarans are built over two hulls instead of one, there’s more deck space than with a monohull sailboat. You and your group will have all the room you need to lay in the sun, dance to your favorite music, do yoga, play games, and more. The Esmeralda is so large we have bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen. Our catamaran is comfortable and offers large and comfortable living spaces, making it ideal for longer trips.

#2 They’re good in rough waves

The two hulls are good for more than just giving your additional square footage on deck. This balance also makes catamarans better in rougher seas. While a traditional boat may rock around in the waves, a catamaran is smooth sailing- literally! Another reason for this is that catamarans can be steered from the inside during bad weather.

#3 Catamarans can navigate shallow water

You may be surprised that a boat so large can get you so close to your favorite beach or island. This is one of the great things about choosing this option. Rather than being forced to anchor far from the sands, the Esmeralda can get you right up next to some of the most gorgeous beaches on the Pacific Coast. You’re welcome to get off and explore Isla Anciana, Playa Blanca, Playa Brasilito, or Playa Trebol– or stay on board while you enjoy the peaceful waves and sunshine.

#4 Most of what you need is included

You’re not only booking time on a boat. When you book a trip on the Esmeralda, you’re also getting fishing gear, binoculars, towels, boogie boards, life vests, and so much more. In fact, many of our guests don’t need to bring much with them at all. As long as you have comfortable clothing and sunscreen, you can let us handle the rest!

#5 You can fish while en route

Nicaragua is known for some of the best fishing in the world. If you were excited to see the above mentioned fishing gear included in your package, you’ll be even happier to hear that thanks to a catamaran’s smooth sailing style you can fish the entire time we’re en route. 

Set on the shoreline along a half-moon shaped bay, San Juan del Sur is a small seaside community that’s full of fishermen. This is where we depart from. It takes several hours to go from San Juan del Sur to your chosen destination. What better way to spend the time than taking part in world-class sport fishing? If you’re lucky or especially skilled, you can catch blue marlin and sailfish
