What a gem. Stick a mansion on the top of a hill over looking an incredible view of green gliding down like a stream to meet the ocean-- where each evening begins with a picturesque sunset by the pool.

The Naked Tiger is the most amazing hostel I've ever experienced! Amazing pool, great food, but the people make the experience feel like a wild dysfunctional family that you will never want to leave! Beau, Katie, Kirstyn, and Kara all made my stay extremely enjoyable. If you want to have a great time in San Juan del Sur, you MUST...

Friends and I decided to try this place out based on the reviews, and did it ever live up to the hype. We couldn't ask for a better location and group of people taking care of us for our 5 nights there. Beau, Morgan, teddy, Helen and Ian made our time unforgettable, Beau even got my buddy a live scorpion...
