+ ADD YOUR PHOTO OF SURFING AT Playa Colorado

Discription of surf spot: Playa Colorado, Nicaragua

Located on a gate-guarded, private beach. Rent a house for $300(+) per night or pile in to a panga with 8-9 other people from a low budget surf camp a few miles away, and boat in to surf with 50 of your new best friends who are doing the same thing. NOT a world class, consistent surf destination as glossy photos and media hype would have you believe, but it was once a relaxing place to catch a few waves. Unfortunately, it's now just another mediocre wave with 20-40 people out even when it's flat.
