Santana vs Iguana

« on: April 14 2010 20:04:00 »

I am bringing my family back to Nicaragua for a couple of months again this winter. We have always stayed at la posada azul in SJDS, but thought it is time to try something new. We are trying to decide betweeen renting a house at Santana or Iguana. I am a beginner surfer. I can get up and make a few turns frontside and backside. Just wondering if anyone could offer some advice to which spot will have better surfing for my skill level. Thanks in advance. Jeremy

Here is my two cents.  Iguana has better waves and a better beach.  Santana has nicer amenities for the family - bigger pool, full restaurant, horses, market, tennis, etc.   Iguana does have some amenities but just not as much as Santana.   Iguana also has a golf course.   We stayed in Santana years ago before Iguana got built up.  We now own a condo at Iguana.  The waves are similar as far as skill level goes.   Both places are a little isolated as Rivas is about 50 minutes away (hospital, grocery store, etc).   Hope that helps.  Shoot me an email if you have any other questions.

Why not try both we have a house in Santana and a condo directly on the beach<10 ft from the sand!Check it out   ck my house out then go to additional rentals for thr condo.Why not stay in both?
   Both beaches have waves for your skill level.
