We are experience Central American travelers (Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, Bocas del Toro) but have yet to travel in "rainy" season (almost always Dec-March).
We would like to visit Popoyo, San Lorenzo and San Juan del Sur for some surf seshes:
1.) If we travel in early July, should we expect torrential downpours or are we going to get some nice sun? Are there any reliable weather resources perhaps online?
2.) How commericalized is San Juan? Judging by my internet research it looks like it has turned into a kinda touristy trap place. Even if so, how accesible and less-ravaged are small surf spots nearby?
3.) Thoughts on renting a truck? Is it necessary to get to the good/secluded surf spots or is a bus sufficient.
4.) Anyone have any experience getting a data plan in Managua to use on a smartphone for GPS navigation?
Any other thoughts/recommendations would be super appreciated.
