Why stay in a surf camp when you can rent a condo that sits right in front of the two of the best breaks in the country?  The owners of these two camps (as well as the other camps) surf here when its good.   Their boats are going to bring you here anyway.   Why travel by boat when you can walk out the back door?  Check it out -

Neither, i can offer a much cheaper alternative.  I am a surf guide living in Nicaragua, email if you would like a customized experience.



someone who knows

is "someone who knows" and employee or owner of a surf camp?  mmmmmm...
yes jj was part of the original crew but now that nicaragua has become developed (and crowded) there is much better access to the waves.  you don't need a boat anymore to get to the waves, there are roads, houses, and condos sitting on all the good breaks. has spoon fed everyone right to best places. you don't need a guide or surf camp owner to show you the way.   all the "locals" have become their own worst enemy.
