While most of you will focus on surf, we offer a ton of other activities that include volcano hiking/boarding, cigar & rum factory tours, colonial city tours and even volunteer programs. This way, you don’t have to leave the girlfriend, wife and/or kids at home (though you can!), which may mean getting an extra surf trip in this year. 


We include a day trip to a colonial city or night out to a nice restaurant in our tours and offer a ton more activities to choose from at a nominal cost; horseback riding, baseball games, coastal hiking, surf lessons, volunteer programs, Spanish lessons, coffee/eco farm tours, colonial town tours, fishing, snorkeling, mangroves, cigar and rum factory tours, zip-lining tours and volcano tours.

Volunteering: We work with local non-profit partners and businesses to plan small projects and/or volunteer sessions clients can partake in. We tailor each program to the clients skill set so both them and the locals get the most out of the program.

Best Period

Nicaragua is hardly ever flat ! Its well-oriented location gets almost every swell. From April to the beginning of November: the best time for the most consistent swells coming from the South and the roaring forties.
From November to March: waves are smaller, but the conditions are offshore, regular and the temperatures are less warm.

During the winter, from November to April, a powerful N/E wind (« papagayo ») blows almost every day, followed by atmospheric conditions of the Nicaragua Lake generating a regular offshore wind, sweeping away most of the countries of Central America and providing smooth and tubular waves.Tides are medium-sized and change the aspect of the spots like everywhere else.
The water temperature does not go beneath 26°C but wear a top when the offshore wind strongly blows in the morning.A gorgeous marine fauna and flora (turtles…)
Surfing is quite new in Nicaragua and the locals are nice (when you see someone in the water…).


Through our tours we access 18+ surf breaks (reef, beach, point breaks and A-frames) with 10+ in an hour radius of our camp. Our camp is in front of three of the most consistent breaks in the region (when everywhere else is flat – say November to April – we have waves) and there’s a fourth break within a 5-minute walk. When a bigger swell hits we start traveling to 6 other areas to score more great waves. 

While the bigger swell season is March through October (good, overhead sized waves that enable us to travel up and down the coast), November to April is also a fantastic time to travel to Nicaragua, and more specifically, to SOLID. As mentioned above, our beach picks up any swell that’s around, giving us fun waves (for every level), warm water (no top needed), great offshore wind (not blown out) and incredible weather (it’s the dry season).

Surf Story

If you think that Costa Rica’s atmosphere is sometimes too US, if you are looking for virgin spots and all kind of waves, in a surprising Latino mood, in the heart of Central America, well then come aboard to surf in
 Nicaragua !
This is a destination where surfing is not that common, a wild nature and kilometres of beachbreaks in the warm waters, no one around only some friendly locals…


Nicaragua was first populated by Mayas. Then, the Miskitos and the Sumos arrived from Colombia and settled in the Northeast. Other Amerindian peoples came from Honduras and Salvador. They all lived together until the Spanish landed.
Christopher Columbus gave his name to the Cape of Gracias a Dios, at the border of Honduras. Nicaragua’s conquest was achieved by the Pacific coast. The Spanish Christianized right away the autochthon populations and imposed the Spanish language.
In 1542, the Spanish created seven provinces: Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Soconusco, Chiapa and Verapaz.
In the 17th century, Nicaragua was the target of British pirates. The Miskitos began later on a long traditional opposition with the British against the Spanish settled on the Pacific coast.In Nicaragua, the Spanish colonization always remained in the Pacific coast. Nicaragua’s independence was declared in 1821 but came apart in 1823 to create las Provincias Unidas Del Centro America including the States of Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, Salvador and Costa Rica.Wars broke out between the States if the federation and the opposite factious party. Then, the country was divided in 1839 to form five new independent States.

In order to wheedle the Miskitos, the British went as far as declaring in 1845 one of them as the “King of the Miskitos”.The British had in mind to build a channel connecting the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. They sent slaves and then workers from Jamaica, who spoke Creole.
Then, the Americans arrived, stole at leisure the region promising jobs for the population. German missionaries converted the local populations to Protestantism.From the British presence in Nicaragua, there is still a Creole population with British origins.In 1823, Managua was proclaimed the national capital. William Walker, an American pirate invaded the country leading a mercenary army and declared himself the President of Nicaragua. He restored slavery and issued English as the official language of the whole country. But Walker was ejected in 1857.

The United States intervened more and more in the country’s daily life and settled a “Big Stick doctrine” launched by President Theodore Roosevelt.For Amerindians, the history of their country can be summed up as a slow erosion of their autonomy before the Europeans’ domination.
From 1912 (until 1932), Nicaragua fell under a complete dependency towards the United States who militarily occupied the country and enforced the checking of customs and railroads. Nicaraguan nationalist Augusto Cesar Sandino attempted to oppose the American domination stirring up a part of the population. Americans intervened once again. Sandino was assassinated in 1934 while he was negotiating for peace. Anastasio Somoza Garcia coming from the national guard created by the United States declared himself as the President in 1936 and enforced his dictatorship until he was assassinated in 1956.
His sons followed one another. The Somoza clique seized upon the main wealth of the country and promoted the plantation of large foreign companies (American ones).
In 1978, the assassination of Pedro Joaquin Chamorro, the leader of the Conservative opposition, launched an insurrection movement led by the Sandinista National Liberation Front (in honour of Augusto Sandino) which forced the dictator Somoza to leave the country.
The civil war would have engendered the death of at least 50 000 people. Once in power, the Sandinistas settled an economic program on the socialism spur, particularly by nationalizing, an agrarian reform and seizing the lands of the Somoza tribe.
In spring 1987, Managua’s Sandinista government began an autonomy status with two autonomous regions: the RAAN (Region Autonoma del Atantico Norte) with the Miskitos and the Sumos, and the RAAS (Region Autonoma del Atlantica Sur) with the Mestizos and the Creoles.
It was the first autonomy given to autochthons on the American continent. The important economic crisis of 1988 engendered the defeat of the Sandinista Daniel Ortega. Violeta Barrios de Chamorro, widow of Pedro Joaquin Chamorro, Conservative candidate backed up by the United States was then elected as the President.


The Republic of Nicaragua is located in Central America and forms a stretchy belt connecting North America to South America. It divides the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Geographically, Nicaragua is bordered by Honduras in the North, and Costa Rica in the South, the Atlantic Ocean in the East, the Pacific Ocean.Nicaragua, whose total area is 139 682 km², is the largest Republic of Central America. 7% of the total area is composed of the lakes of Managua (Xolotlan) and Nicaragua (Cocobolca), this last one constituting one of the largest reserve of soft water in the world.
The country is divided in 3 main zones :
The Pacific coast, long strip of fertile land going from the border with Costa Rica (South) to the Gulf of Fontesca (facing Salvador). It is bordered in the West by the ocean and in the East by a volcanoes chain. The country has 58 volcanoes of which several are active ones. This plain is sprinkled by lakes and volcanic lagoons.
This is where the major cities are located: Managua (capital), Leon, Granada, Masaya, Chinandega, Corinto (the main harbour) and this is the most populated part of the country.
The mountainous zone: two lakes divide the Pacific coast and the mountains, the Nicaragua (8 200 km²), the Cocibolca (in indigenous language, it means the soft sea) and the Managua (2 000 km²).Mountains are not that high, the Mogoton reaches 2 000 m near the Honduras border. This is a forest area, coffee plantations and bovines-farming.
The major cities of this region are Matagalpa, Jinotega, Esteli, Ocotal, Somoto.
The Caribbean coast represents 51% of the total area of the country. This is also the least populated region. There are hills covered with rainy forests where rivers such as the Rio Coco (part of the Honduras frontier) and the Rio San Juan are flowing. The coastal plain is often swampy.The major city of the Caribbean coast is Bluefields, followed by Puero Cabeza.  The Pacific and Caribbean coasts are separated by two large mountains ranges: the Cordillera Centroamericana and the Cordilleras Segoviana and Yolaina. In the west of the Cordillera Centroamericana, there only is a stretchy strip on the shore where 90% of the population live, with big cities like Managua, Leon and Granada.


A compulsory visa for a short stay has been suppressed for French nationals who wish to enter Nicaragua. A 5 $US fee must be paid when you arrive in the country and a 32 $US fee when you leave. It is not possible to exchange euros. The passport must be valid at least 6 months and in good conditions (not wrecked, wrinkled pages)

Spanish. In some isolated zones, the indigenous languages are still spoken like Miskito, Garifona, and Sumu.
Nicaragua has about 5 million of inhabitants. More than half of the population is under 16 years old. Very quickly after the colonization, the Spanish blended themselves with Amerindians and the Nicaraguans are the result of this union. The Mestizos represent the largest part of the population.

No vaccine is mandatory. Prevent yourself from mosquito bites especially during the wet season from mid-May to September. Besides, it is advised to have a treatment against malaria before and while you stay in the country.

From October to March = GMT – 7 hours.From April to October = GMT – 8 hours.

Warm and humid tropical climate with two seasons: in summer, it is very dry and hot from November to April and this is the best period (28°C on average during the dry season, 34°C max) and in winter (the wet season) from mid-May to October (25°C). The hurricane period goes from July to October.

The main road (Transamerican), crossing the country from North to South can be driven by any kind of vehicles. During the rainy season, a 4X4 is usually necessary. Renting a car is quite expensive. The price of gas is high, about 1 $US the liter.

110 V like in the US. Bring an adaptor. For the telephone, buy prepaid phone cards that can be used from any kind of public phone even to call abroad.Natel, the cellular network begins to spread. Calling code for Nicaragua = 505.

Cordoba (NIO). About 16.40 NIO = 1 $US. Bring dollars along, always useful…

A destination quite safe if you do not tempt the devil like anywhere else! You will be able to bring back several original items from Nicaragua: braided hammocks, rum (delicious), jewelries, Guayaberas (traditional shirts), Masaya’s shoes (all leather, home-made), cigars, potteries with Amerindian decorations. On the Caribbean coasts, music sounds like Reggae and Steel band. The most famous group is Dimension Costena.
