This surf trip is open for people that never surfed before to advanced surfers.

You need no prior surfing experience to participate in this surf trip. There are different packages depending on your level: surf lessons for beginners and surf guiding for intermediates.

Discover what's your surf level!

SURF CONDITIONS

In Nicaragua you find a tropical climate with two distinct seasons: wet season and dry season. For more powerful and consistent surf, May to November is the best time to visit the Pacific coast but this is also the season with the most amount of rain (and crowds).

During November, at the start of the dry season, the sun shines and the crowds thin out, leaving us with less consistent and powerful swells but with more days in the shoulder to head high range. Nicaragua boosts 300 days of offshore winds per year, grooming waves into perfection. Expect an uncrowded beachbreak with multiple peaks out front and multiple waves within walking distance: whether you're looking to learn to surf or to get your first beachbreak barrels, this is the perfect time to visit Nicaragua.

You will find a beachbreak a few minutes walking from the accommodation and more peaks a 10-15 minutes walk. This means that you'll be able to surf as much as you want during this trip.

Recommended wetsuit

No wetsuit needed. Bring a rashguard and a surf hat to protect yourself from the sun!

Avg. Water Temperature

26-29ºC

Avg. conditions

Shoulder to head high and medium crowds. Nicaragua has more than 300 days of offshore winds per year.

Weather

After rainy October, November marks the start of the dry season / Summer.

HOW TO GET TO POPOYO

Flying to Managua, Nicaragua is the easiest way to get to the surf house in Popoyo. From there we recommend arranging direct transportation to the surf house, especially if you are traveling with surfboards.

Other than Managua, you can also reach Popoyo from the Costa Rica border, San Jose airport or Liberia airport.

The prices for the pre-organized transfer shuttles are:

Group Shuttle Managua Airport to Popoyo - $300 Max 10 people
Private Shuttle Managua Airport to Popoyo - $150 Max 4 people
Private Shuttle San Jose Airport to Popoyo - $460 Max 4 people
Private Shuttle Liberia Airport to Popoyo - $280 Max 4 people

The cheapest way to reach Popoyo is via public bus from Managua or Costa Rican border to Rivas, then a bus to Las Salinas and then a taxi - as there's no bus reaching Popoyo. We recommend arranging transfer beforehand.
