This property is 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.

This property is also 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 Playa Gigante. Unfortunately a large headland extending west from beach protects Gigante from prevailing south swells. This is NOT a consistent surf spot. However, during the surf season (April-October) there are days when west or south west swell will wrap into the bay providing waves that offer typical beach break with rights and lefts. If there is surf, take advantage of it. Playa Gigante's best attribute is it's beautiful beach and the close proximity to other high caliber surf spots like Playa Colorado, Panga Drops, and Popoyo to the north and Manzanillo and Playa Madera to the south.

This property is also located near Playa Santana. A beach break that works best around a high tide. Three main peaks, the first peak is similar to a reverse Sebastian Inlet, the second and third peaks are A-frame barreling beach breaks with lots of good lefts and rights.

This property is also located near Popoyo. The most well known break in the area. Rights and lefts break over rock bottom. A-frame that breaks on high tide (fat and workable) and low low tide(fast and hollow). Rarely unoccupied so look for the surfers in the water and you're there! The rights are more barreling, while the lefts are longer. There is a huge outer reef break too, experts only!
