3. Re: Surfing Vacation – Cheap – Family Vacation

I think the best setup as far as comfortable beach vacations for a surfing family would be renting a house. The first place that comes to mind is Playa Iguana near Tola. There are several rentals there on offer. In addition to vrbo, flipkey, etc. check the local craigslist too. There are two great breaks right there and it is close to several more. Another similar place that in my mind is even better as the views are outstanding is Rancho Santana.
More of the obvious possibilities are San Juan del Sur, Popoyo, Playa Gigante, etc.
Then there are the Top Four Off-the-Beaten Path Surfing and Fishing Villages…

Best Nicaragua Surfing Vacations
Some of the best Nicaragua surfing vacations can be booked right here with El Porton Verde! With our extensive network of small beachfront inns and private homes to rent, your dream tropical surf vacation can be made into a reality!
For more surf vacation ideas, see Top Four Off-the-Beaten-Path Surfing and Fishing Villages. As I wrote on that post, there are some really nice surf spots in Nicaragua that are not very well known and most of the surfers do not make it to those areas.
A little secret from one of the “Nicaragua Insiders” is that even though I wrote about four different places, there are at least a half-dozen more that I did not mention that meet the same general criteria! You can’t expect me to leave it all out there hanging in the wind so-to-speak, did you?
Okay, I will give you one more not in the “Top Four.” Salinas Grandes, in the department of Leon. A really fine open beachbreak when on, smaller surf preferred. Another “end-of-the-road” type of place. There are a few places to stay now and a gorgeous sunset is practically guaranteed!
As vianica.com puts it:
Salinas Grande Beach can be the best choice for those who are looking for a rarely frequented beach with great waves and wants to be in touch with nature.
We can’t (and won’t!) argue with that!
