About this property

Perfect Playa Colorado Surf Condo

Fully renovated in 2018 with new paint, new furniture, and brand new stainless steel appliances

This beautiful oceanfront ground floor 3 bedroom / 2 bath condo (unit V1) is located in Villas Rio Dulce at the private, gated resort of Hacienda Iguana. There are lots of Playa Colorado Condo rentals to choose from but there are few 3 bedrooms on the ground floor allowing you to bring the whole family or friends and simply walk out the patio door straight to the surf.

Our condo is a TRUE 3 bedroom ground floor oceanfront unit that has 1 Queen bed and 4 Double beds. Each room has its own A/C unit and fan so everyone can be comfortable. The condo complex was completed in January 2009 and has been well cared for. Satellite TV, broadband internet with WIFI, and a cell phone tower are all available so you can stay connected.  DISH network from Florida and Netflix enabled on a 43 inch Samsung Plasma TV.  Bluetooth stereo so bring your tunes. On-site property managers that can arrange airport pick up, complete meal plans, rentals, boat trips, tours, massages, etc.  Cell phone in the condo for our guests use.

Our 3 bedroom condo sits right in front of the best break in all of Nicaragua - Rio Colorado ("Colorados"). This EPIC river mouth beach break boasts high performance tubing waves that break left and right over a sand bottom. Almost all the videos and photos of surfing in Nicaragua are shot here. Need to check the waves? Look out the window! No more long walks or bumpy boat rides. Surf when you want without having to wait on everyone in your group to wake up, eat, and get ready. Be wary of other places to stay that say "playa colorado" or "short walk to the break" as this is the only condo building that sits directly on the actual "Colorados" surf break.

* The other break within the gated resort is Panga Drops - a deep water reef that amplifies the swell to ensure waves when everywhere else goes flat. Waves tend to much bigger here but can be a little softer. Its about a 10 minute walk down the beach.

* Land access to both of these breaks is extremely limited to those not staying at Hacienda Iguana and requires either a VERY LONG walk or a bumpy boat ride. That means you have to come and go on someone else's schedule.

* Other nearby breaks within easy walking distance include Playa Amarillo (beach break) and Los Perros (a rocky point break that wraps all the way into the bay on larger swells).

Location
This stretch of beach is known as the "Nicaraguan Riveria" and home of the world class Rio Colorado ("Colorados") and Panga Drops surf breaks. The master planned Hacienda Iguana development is also the home of the only functional golf course in Nicaragua.

Surf

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.
