The Most Fun Beach-breaks in the Americas

Over 300 days a year of off-shore winds, fewer crowds than Costa Rica, and consistent waves year-round, simply put, Nicaragua is a really great surf destination, with so much more to offer.

MGA - Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (Managua)

International Direct Flights from: Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Miami (MIA), Houston (IAH), Panama City (PTY), San Jose (SJO), and San Salvador (SAL).


MARCH - SEPTEMBER: Best surf season in the Nicaragua with light offshore winds and most consistent southern swells. This is mostly the “Green Season” as well, with occasional showers

OCTOBER - FEBRUARY: October and November still offer plenty of swell but winds can be trickier, then December to February the swells are mostly from the north, which miss Nicaragua completely. It’s the dry season but not the best for surfing.


CASA MADERA - Best for a very private setup with a small family or group of friends.
