Choose Your BEACH


Popoyo is in the north or the Nicaraguan region of Tola, and is a surf mecca, calling both beginner and advanced surfers to its mellow inner reef breaks and epic outer reef breaks alike. It also charms beginner surfers with the popular and sheltered Beginner’s Bay, just a little way south. South of Beginners bay, surfers seek out Playa Santana, a long beach with multiple reef breaks and a lot of variety. 

Hacienda Iguana is the home of Playa Colorado which boasts epic barrels during peak season as well as year-round satisfaction at Panga Drops with its deep-water swell. Further south at San Juan Del Sur, the coves and beaches seem endless, each offering something delightfully different at either Playa Maderas, Playa Hermosa, Playa Remanso or Playa Yankee. One thing is for sure- with all of the variety and nearly year-long off shore breezes, you are bound to have the surf experience of a lifetime!
