How did your trips turn out?  Is this place cool?  Good waves?

If you want to avoid the high dollar surf camps we have a killer oceanfront condo that sits right on the best break in Nicaragua - Playa Colorado.  Check out our website -  We'll be glad to hook you up.

Just got back from Chancletas. Great trip. Scored great waves. Two main spots in areas. 1) out front of hotel, tons of barrels and picks up lots of swell, 2) surf the point, 5 min boat ride to outside island, great left that peels forever. Also two or three other spots within minutes by car.  Food was good, cheap, and great hospitality. Chancletas is definitely the best deal in Nica.

I stayed at Chancletas in July 08 and it's the best surf hotel in Nicaragua. Shay and his crew are the best. Clean rooms, great food, and great drinks too! Surf right in front of the hotel! Always breaks and barrels galore. I'm going back on May 1 to surf there and also Las Penitas.

I stayed at Joe's- 5-10 min away on a (free) bicycle. You spend roughly half the money on room and food so can stay twice as long. The food is better for sure. And it's right next to the boat for surfing the point and fishing. Best of all, you're not sitting on your ass staring at a bunch of primadonnas watching themselves surf on video on their laptops. Here you meet the real locals and practice your Spanish.Highly recommended.
