This property is located near Playa Colorado. Playa Colorado is a river mouth beach break that serves up some of the best waves in Nicaragua. Any hint of south swell gets funneled into A-Frame peaks groomed to perfection by the constant offshore wind. The wave is a mix of barrels, peaks, sections, and ramps that revolve around the mood of the ocean and tides. Colorados can dish out incredible barrels when the elements come together. Its power will surprise you at times, it is one of the most consistent spots in Central America as well. Be prepared to break a board or two during your visit, but also be prepared to get some of the best rides of your life over one of the best sandbars imaginable!

This property is also located near Panga Drops. A horseshoe shaped rock / beach break that produces some of the regions best waves. This wave can hold more size than nearby Playa Colorado, up to 3x overhead. Big drops and long walls can be expected. Intermediate to advanced.

This property is also located near Los Perros. A fickle, seldom surfed right point break. The wave is fun to surf sometimes but don't count on anything.

Thoughts I want to pass on:

This is an amazing property in a premier location. It is a short 4 minute walk from 2 of the best breaks in this area. I have traveled to this location several times on surf trips, and this trip was by far the best one yet.

This trip was a romantic getaway with my wife/surf trip and it was perfect. Being in the Hacienda Iguana development with the beach club and restaurants with the fabulous property and private pool added just the right amount of luxury vacation feel to this secluded jungle/beach getaway. I cant say enough about how helpful David and the Nica 365 crew were in making reservations and arranging transportation.

If you just want to surf, Playa Colorado, the best break in this region in my humble opinion, is a 4 minute walk from your front door and the vibe at the Iguana beach club is awesome for coming in, grabbing a smoothie (or a Tonia) at the beach side cafe, then chilling in a hammock or in the infinity pool until you gather enough energy to paddle out again. You could have the surf trip of your life without ever having to walk more than 4 minutes from your front door. I highly recommend this property if you are considering visiting the southern pacific coast of Nica. Cheers.

This is a great Wavecation for:

Short Board
Families with Kids
Girls Getaway
Travelers without a Car
