About this property

Monty’s Beach Lodge is a rustic, comfortable and friendly environment where you'll quickly feel at home. Life revolves around our open restaurant and bar, where you can read, gather with friends, or just relax in a hammock beneath the palms and watch the sunset sipping a cool drink. 

The restaurant features typical Nicaraguan coastal food and a few North American favorites. Expect fresh seafood, lobster, snapper, prawns, fresh papaya and pineapple, good strong Nicaraguan coffee, cold beer and fresh local juices.

Our lodge is beachfront so you're never more than a few steps from the sand and surf. We're also located in a rural part of Nicaragua. If you're looking for nightlife, clubs, disco and a good party time Monty's is probably not for you. If you're looking to get away from your hectic life, enjoy time with family and new friends, interact with the local community, play in the waves, explore the natural wonders around us and enjoy some good hammock time then you'll feel right at home at Monty's.

Surfing - Nicaragua catches the southern swell for much of the year. If you're looking for big swell, peak season for the southern swell starts in April and runs through September. Waves are generally gentler—but still great fun for beginners and intermediates—in our winter season, December-February.

Surfboard Rentals and Surfing Lessons - Monty’s has surf board and boogie board from $5 to $15 per day. Of course, you can always bring your own! We also offer surfing lessons as well for $10-20.00/person depending on numbers.

Boat Surfing - We can access intermediate to advanced waves in 15 minutes of the boat launch! $40 per person depending on length of time and number of people.

Paddleboarding - A great alternative to conventional surfing because surfer remains standing and moves through the water by paddling a long, canoe style paddle. Typically more suitable for smaller waves, paddleboarding is also an alternative to kayaking or canoeing on flat open waters such as the mangrove estuary! $30 per day rental.

Surf Kayaking Waveskis - The surf craft that you sit and ride the waves. It hands very easily on a wave similar to a surf board. The difference is that you are seated and turn with body movements and a paddle. Waveskis are lightweight, fast and fun!  Waveskis are also a great way to explore the mangrove estuary! $30 per day rental.

Kayak Padre Ramos Wildlife Reserve - This is a mangrove estuary chock full of fish and migrating birds. Interested in a guided tour by Jennifer?

Bicycle - Adventure by bike the nine kilometers of beach and three communities of Jiquilillo, Loz Zorros and Padre Ramos. $10 per day which helps to pay for running the Community Center.

The lodge is clean, bright and breezy. It features a variety of lodging styles; private rooms with bathrooms, private rooms with shared bathrooms, and private rooms and dorms with common bathrooms.

  1. We have 2 new palm roof bungalows, one has 2 large bedrooms, each with a private bath and serparate entrance and porch.
  2. The second Bunglaow has 1 large bedroom with private bath and covered porch. 
  3. There are 7 beach lodge double rooms with fans and shared bathrooms.
  4. Lastly, we have both a female dorm and a male dorm with 4 bunk beds each.

The rooms all have mosquito nets, fans and electricity. The camp is located on a sandy, wide open beach with surfing at your doorstep.  At the camp we are planting fruit trees and flowers in our garden so we can reach for our own bananas, mangos, papayas, limes and pineapples.

Looking to do more on your vacation than sip on fruity drinks and catch waves? Do you want to return home feeling not only relaxed, but re-inspired from making a difference in the lives of others?  At Monty's we care deeply about giving back to the local community and offer numerous programs to help the area's children, clinics, schools, wildlife and families. Everything is low-pressure, if you just want to swing in a hammock all day -- perfect!  If you want to work alongside local builders helping put up a new community center then we can make that happen for you too.
