El Encanto

El Encanto del Sur is one of those rare developments designed to evolve and grow with our community. By building an ecosystem of homes, businesses, services and gathering places, we aim to provide a self-sustaining haven for a spectrum of cultures and a diversity of perspectives in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.

Community About Us


When El Encanto del Sur was founded in 2006, a set of ideas were laid down to guide growth: embrace sustainability and support diversity. This philosophy becomes visibly apparent as soon as you visit. Acres of raw, untouched forest provide green corridors between lots and account for nearly 40% of the entire development, and soon our solar grid will be ready to power the homes of our residents. Young and old, local and international, the emergent mix of individuals and families who have recognized the opportunity here and set out to build an energetic, adventurous community, is stunning.

Schedule a Tour

We’ve sold out our initial phases and we are now completing the infrastructure to enable lot owners to build on our Cascadas, Mesas, and Montecitos lots. If you’re interested, reach out to us below and we will be happy to arrange a tour or answer any questions you may have about our properties and custom homes, or about San Juan del Sur itself. It’s an open invitation – welcome one and all!

If you’d like to visit El Encanto, we recommend a stay at TreeCasa Resort. TreeCasa’s canopy suites and farm-to-table restaurant provide a refined and immersive experience in the hills of San Juan. Adventure opportunities abound, from yoga to mountain biking trails to cooking classes. We also offer  free tours on horseback or by car from the resort, which is located at the heart of the El Encanto village, just over the hill from our Sueños phase.
