Is it easy enough to go it on your own???

« on: March 31 2008 15:03:00 »

Are most of the breaks in Nica only accesible by hiring guides/boats or are there enough fun breaks to just go to a locale and watch the waves from your place?  I am an experienced traveler who in not interested in shelling out 1000+ dollars to some all inclusive type place also I am trying to avoid the gringo surf camps.  Is there enough infrastructure to go it on your own?  Can I just land in Managua and figure is out from there?

Yeah definietly... just make sure you go towards the south Pacific (Rivas- San Juan del Sur/Tola area), that is where most of the surf breaks are which, have enough traffic to where you don't need a guide. There is one more on the northern side of the country called Las Penitas it is in Leon... buses travel to and from the beach to the city of Leon by the hour. There are also various places to stay on the beach there.
Nica is a safe place as long as you follow all the normal safety guidelines... don't walk on the street at night on your own, stay on more populated areas, ect... Enjoy your travels!
