SJDS is a mainstay for travelers. You can hook up with others there, locals and tourists. There a some decent breaks around there but better ones up north. North has less for accomodation and food. However there are a few places to stay there depending on what you are looking for.
Good Luck with the Surf and enjoy the great people of Nicaragua.

I surfed Nicaragua last year, and it was stellar. My suggestion is to go to San Juan Del Sur and stay at the Joxy Hotel. It's super cheap, and pretty safe. There are daily boat trips that go to a whole bunch of breaks like Pongo (gnar) and Popoyo (even more gnar). Watch out though, Nicaragua is kinda sketchy, especially if you don't speak spanish. Stay off the beach at night, and you should be fine, Buenas Olas

My wife and I are heading to Nica next week and we will be spending a few nights in SJdS. Is it possible to rent boards there? If so, where? If not, what type and size boards should I bring? Are there any good surf guides that could take us out for a day or two?

I'm going to San Juan del Sur in Feb. Does the local surf shop rent boards? Do you know the names of any breaks for longboarders? Thanks for you help.

I got a gun pulled on me there last year. They got my money, my board and it totally blew my trip.
