6. Re: Surf Trip but without the Surf Camp

It’s sort of off the radar, but a good option in a nice mid-range rental with good surf would be Gran Pacifica, which is near Managua. There is a nice beach break there called Asuchillo and a fantastic left point for more advanced surfers too.
I am taking guests there in April so it’s been on my mind as a good place to go. They are renting a condo and I think the prices are pretty reasonable for what you get.
Another area, a bit further afield, is Jiquilillo Beach, where Finca Esperanza is. Look up the Casa de los Portugales. I stayed there about three years ago for a week and it was fantastic. A bit isolated but perfect waves if you time it to go when there are hgih tides in the morning.
I hope this helps and you have a great time in Nicaragua!

Now this individual on TripAdvisor’s Nicaragua Forum is asking about specific surf data and my answer provides details of spots including tides and for which level of surfing skills. Someone who actually knows where the great places to go are can be a wonderful addition to your Nicaraguan surf trip. If anyone wants my advice feel free to ask!
A surf camp in Nicaragua is not really necessary, especially so if you are traveling as a group. However, I can see where it can work really well for a single person to join in with another group so you don’t have to deal with all the trip basics yourself. There are lots of nice beaches to go to that include several off-the-beaten-path surfing and fishing villages.
