Surf camp Nicaragua near Rivas« on: June 07 2005 09:06:00 »
It's possible to surf some good waves in Playa Gigante near Rivas.
We were in a surf camp (Momo surf camp). We surfed every day with the boat to find the best wave. It was great !!!! It's a small village of ficherman. Cool ambiant and safe. The food was correct.
San juan del Sur is not the best place to surf. Search Playa Gigante or Popoyo, Maderas. Nicaragua is a nice country.

The best place to surf near San Juan del Sur could be the Momo surf camp located in Playa Gigante. It's cheap, the food was fresh and clean. All the day boat trip to find the best spot like Manzanillo o Popoyo, Ponga, Colorado. We surfed everyday nice waves.
The Small village is safe, The owner is cool and he's a good surfer
They rent boards.

New place opening within 5 minute walk to Santana. Small grouping of vacation homes, pool, restaurant. We do only small groups of guided packages and also have rooms to rent for those traveling through. If you are interested you can check us out @ nicaraguasurftrip.com

My advice -- avoid the surf camps around the Salinas area. JJ's, La Tica, Rancho Santana owners, and now the Surf Sanctuary have way over-populated the area. I was there in July and the Santana beach break was more crowded than Salt Creek on a summer swell. Hordes of local Nica kids would wait every day until the tide came up, and be on the break just as truck loads of camp surfers would show up. It's ridiculous. If you want to surf Nica, rent a truck and explore on your own. Avoid the camps.

There is a reef in the northern part of Nicaragua that is truly world class!! Get you 4x4 and go look for it.

I live in managua, surf all the time and hardly ever head south... I rent out my 4x4 hilux and serve as a driver for small groups, just so i can surf and cover expenses and maybe make pocket change, not a living. Im nicaraguan and would be glad to explore new spots.

My parents just moved to Nicaragua 2 years ago. - Los Perros - Rancho Santana - awesome place. They have land on Poppoyyo. They have friends they have opened a surf inn/camp type place. Even if they do not have availability they might have good advice. Email me and I will give you my mom's contact info. Just do not want to post it out on this web.

Do you think you can still find quite uncrowded places to surf in the area you talk about ?
RE: my surf trip« Reply #9 on: January 17 2006 16:01:00 »
if you are headed south to a surf camp you are bound to en d up in crowded areas. there are 2 surf camps in gigante, 2 in popoyo, one in santa anna, three or four in san juna del sur, they are all booked, all visit the same waves... you end up stuck.
