Nicaragua offers a privileged position that allows you to enjoy a tropical climate, beaches with incredible waves and spectacular scenery. The surfer tourism in the country has an advantage: Uncongested beaches. What every surfer wants.

Tourist attractions:

Nicaragua has wonderful landscapes, from a Volcano where to practice Sandboarding to lakes and beaches ideal for surfing. In the center of the Southeast of the country, we find for example the Lake of Nicaragua.

8000 square kilometers of flat area, with wind from east to west all year round. An incredible place to visit and enjoy. Not to mention the famous Route of the 7 beaches, you must come!

Papagayo Wind:

The southern Pacific coasts of Nicaragua receive constant onshore winds out to sea. It remains the same during the day, offering perfect conditions for surfing.

This well-known papagayo wind is appreciated by local and foreign surfers who come to Nicaragua to experience the wonderful waves.

In addition, the presence of this wind interacts with the warm water of the surface, which joins the cold water of the seabed and generates nutrients that enrich the algae. This increases the presence of fish, such as Marlin and Sailfish.

Beaches in Nicaragua

The country has several special beaches for surfing, ranging from the beaches of Tola and San Juan del sur, to Chinandega. Beaches such as Popoyo and Aposentillo are favorite surfing destinations for locals and foreigners alike.

Marine life:

Surfing makes life in the sea, and as such allows us to interact with the life forms that inhabit it. In Nicaragua it is possible to find sea turtles, dolphins and even whales.

At the same time, many spots hidden along the coast are waiting to be surfed. These horseshoe-shaped beaches are hidden by ravines and tall trees. Making wonderful little bays.

When to surf:

If you are looking for year-round surfing, without a doubt Nicaragua is your choice. The best waves are during the rainy season, that is from April to November.

The INETER (Nicaraguan Institute of Territorial Studies), in its web portal offers all the information about tides, wind and other conditions that every surfer should know.

Surf Retreats:

It is possible to find multiple options. At Las Dunas Surf Resort we offer 2 options: The Surf Retreat and the Surf & Yoga Retreat. The first focused specifically on surfing, the second incorporates the benefits of yoga as a perfect complement.
