6 Reasons Why Nicaragua is a Must Go Surf Destination

Great beaches, great weather, low prices

The Pacific Coast of Nicaragua boasts top class surfing, with a great selection within 10km of the tourist hub of San Juan del Sur. All beaches can be easily be reached from San Juan – there are very regular surf busses from town.

One of the most popular surf beaches in the south in Playa Madera – a good spot for beginners and advanced surfers. Because of the nearby Lago de Nicaragua, there are 300+ days a year of off shore winds, meaning you can catch good waves daily.

Slightly further to the North is the Popoyo Surf Zone – a 10km long stretch of beaches with 10+ nearby rights and lefts. For more information, check out
