The sleepy town of Rio San Juan shows its roots as a quiet fishing village on a daily basis as tourists travel here in small numbers and center much of their activity around the marina.  Sailing and fishing are still top pastimes, and a growing number of people are choosing to make waves diving and snorkeling as well.  On land, there is not much to do outside of sightseeing, getting in a bit of shopping, and enjoying the laid back nightlife.
