About this property

The Nica Dos Condo at Hacienda Iguana
Located at the north end of Playa Colorado with a river and Los Perros point to the north and two quality waves a short walk to the south. This vacation rental unit is at the ground-floor of a two story structure and fronts the beach with unobstructed views. A pool and shade area are located between the sand and the terraces - this is a great place to relax after a full day of surf. Nic-a-dos incudes a fully equipped kitchen and daily housekeeping service and is 100% air conditioned.

Hacienda Iguana has a beautiful nine hole golf course. All condos come with a golf club membership in case you would like to hit the links between sessions.  Rental of this unit includes discounted GOLF CART rental - just $15/day.

The Surf
The wave directly to the south is called Panga drops. It breaks over a rock outcropping on an otherwise sandy beach. The zone magnifies swell so that Panga’s is always significantly bigger than surrounding breaks. This wave is often shifty with two, sometimes three main peaks. It breaks softer and slower than the rest of the beach, making it a little more of an “all-levels” break.

The main beach break area of Colorado is farther down the beach where the waves are faster and hollower than Panga’s. Colorado is a 10 minute walk down the beach and offers some of the best surf in Nicaragua.

Directly out front is a more fickle, seldom surfed right point break called Los Perros. It's a novelty wave, but is fun to try sometimes. The surf breaks of Manzanillo, Rosada, Santana, Popoyo, Astillero, etc. are accessible by boat or car. Boat trips are easily arranged, just ask us.

This stretch of Nicaragua's coast receives good surf and wind conditions year round. Generally storm generated groundswell is most consistent from April-September. Winds generally blow offshore all day long in this part of Nicaragua. In October longer spells of onshore winds are common. Hurricanes in the carribbean can also negatively affect the otherwise dominant offshore wind pattern

The Surroundings
The beach is a stunning mile-long white sand stretch, and the surrounding forest is home to wild howler monkeys, parrots, iguanas, and more. The fishing and diving is excellent. If you choose not to catch your own, the fishing village of Gigante sells fresh fish every day and is accessible along the beach.

Meal Plan
For $30/person/day you will arrive to a kitchen stocked full of food and drink (yes, even beer and rum). Arranging this service will allow you to head straight from the airport to the house and beach without the hassle of shopping and spending time in a grocery store. Three delicious, healthy, and generous meals will be prepared daily by the staff allowing you to relax and enjoy your vacation completely. More details and a list of meals offered is available upon request.

This house is located 2-2.5 hours drive from the airport. Most major rental companies maintain a booth in the airport and it is possible to reserve your rental vehicle online before you travel. 4wd is recommended during the rainy season months of May-October. If you prefer not to rent a car NSR has you covered. We have a fleet of reliable trucks and vans ready to offer you airport transport and daily sightseeing trips. NSR can also arrange boat trips to other breaks in the area.

This property is 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 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 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!
