Will be in Nicaragua for 4 days over Thanksgiving. Thinking of splitting my time between granada and san jaun del sur. Any advice regarding what to do and where to stay would be great!

Both Granada and San Juan del Sur are great places, pity you only have four days in total. In Granada, I stayed at Oasis hostel which was quite nice and even has a pool! As for sightseeing, the markets were cool and there are a few nice old buildings that are worth having a look.
San Juan on the other hand is a perfect place to relax, chill out on the beach, go for a walk to the lighthouse or do a tour to check out some huge turtles. Casa Oro was a good hostel and the staff can also organize tours for you. As far as I remember it was even possible to go surfing and diving for, just in case you are into that kind of activities.
And if you decide to stay in Nicaragua for longer make sure you go to Isla Ometepe. It's an island with two volcanos on Lake Nicaragua and definitely worth a visit!

Hope this helps ;),

Thanks for the info! I'll check out the hostels you recommended. Sounds like the way to go would be 1 day in Granada and the rest in SJDS.
