surftraveler "IT IS BETTER 2 STAY IN MANAGUA" after surfing the central pacific coast over here, no doubt. WhY?
Because A. the winds on the central pacific coast tend to get onshore winds after 10 am, sometimes even earlier than that. Thus the waves turn 2 shit. and there you are in the middle of camp swamp mospquito land w/ no waves after 10 am!
What do you do the rest of the day? read a book? sure man. thats cool but it can get monotonous,

AND no surf traveler I'm not trying to convince anyone of nothing,..I prefer my clients choose where they want to sleep,
thats why I even offer all sorts of sleeping options including camping packages for 100 week. and free airport p/u & drop off.

HOLA,..no I'm not sugesting that u should limit your visit to Managua or any certain spot for that matter. and where you stay really depends on your girl.
this specific topic is about the central pacific beaches in Nicaragua, which are about 45 min - an hour drive from Managua.
the waves around this area, have never been as good as the waves down south in SJDS. but certain points break under certain conditions. and it gets really good and glassy.

Didn't intend to wind you up. I belive most surfers prefer to stay along the coast. Fishing if the winds are unfavorable, waching the sunset over the pacific. I personally like to limit my car time to exploring for new spots rather than going back and forth. Good luck with your business.

i realy wish it were that simple palengue.
waves and surf dont feed us. and there aint many ways to make a good living in this country. i bought my wife her ring, a truck, a nice apartment, put a good saving in the bank. i did surf trips for about two years and sold land on the side. now i got a ful time job at a leadership center and surf about once a week. Your right, it stinks to have to sell waves and land but i thank god i had the oportunity to do it. Got a baby on the way and the means to take care of her. I dont like to obsess about $$$flow but i do like to get paid for may services.
By the way, the guy who wants to split costs on a vehicle, check out the 4x4 post. the same price that will get you a renta car will get you a guide, translater, driver and vehicle.

me and my mate are coming to nica today,and if it is affordable we are keen to split costs on a 4x4, however we are basic travellers and dont want to spend a lot of money.
we love to surf every day, so if we can come to an agreament that would be cool.

I stayed at Los Cardones three times this year, and had a wonderful and relaxing time. Izik and Laure, the owners, are extremly nice, courteous and treat their guests like royalty. The food is excellent and the accomodations are rustic and relaxing. With quality and professional service, friendliness and access to waves, so what on a few mosquitoes. They are usually booked solid, so other surfers and guests must not care either about the mosquitos. I am surprised, a native like you from Managua, is complaining.
