Surf camp, Nicaragua – Everything You Need to Know


For every surf enthusiast, our primary needs are a surf destination that offers: a versatile selection of waves, fewer crowds, lush, green jungle, pristine beaches, abundant wildlife, friendly locals, budget-friendly prices, nice accommodation and great food. Well, say Hola to Nicaragua!

Consistent waves year round, stunningly enthralling flora & fauna, and fewer crowds in comparison to many more trendy destinations, Nicaragua is hard to beat when it comes to surfing destinations in the entire Central America region.

“The land of lakes and volcanoes” gained its prominence as a surfing destination quite recently. Despite its rich coastal topography, the country’s surf locations remained unnoticed for a long time – mainly due to the civil war. However, the growth in tourism in the beginning of the 21st century and consistently perfect waves have attracted national and international surfers from across the world!

Real Surf Trips welcomes you to one of the newest surf destinations: Nicaragua. We are all about the effort to results ratio and have assembled a surf vacation that will surprise and amaze you and your crew – waves, accommodation, food, transportation and everything else is provided. Relax, have fun, go rip and leave the details to us.

Bring sunscreen – Quality sunscreen is very hard to find down here, and expensive if you do.

Bring along full-sleeve shirts and pants, and some repellant – for bug protection when you are exploring the colonial villages or partying late night.

Drink plenty of water- Dehydration is a major risk with days filled with multiple surf sessions and fun activities.

Surf spots and Surf locations

The variety and quality of over a dozen surf spots on this blessed stretch of coastline is incredible. Most every morning provides glassy conditions or light offshore wind, so it is worth it to get up early. We don’t provide surf maps or name specific spots and beaches in our marketing and social media, as they still are peaceful and fairly uncrowded, some are still empty secret spots! The amazing photos display all you need to know and the mix of epic waves and good vibes may make this your surf trip best ever, which like many of our happy visitors, you will want to repeat every year.
