Surf's up!

Nicaragua is blessed with an abundance of good waves, 330 days of offshore winds, and sunny weather almost  all year-round.  The surf rarely drops below 2 feet and it can get up to 12 feet from April through October. 

Colorado Surf Condo has direct access to two of the best surf spots in Nicaragua. 

Playa Colorado
This is arguably one of the best beach breaks in Nicaragua, if not in Central America.  Colorado breaks over sand bars made from the river mouth, and works at all tides, all year.  Both left and right barrels, with the left being the most epic on a south swell.  It can get funneled into A-Frame peaks groomed to perfection by the constant offshore wind.  

Panga Drops
Panga is a deepwater break that breaks over a reef and is a great wave for long boarders.  It has a mellow take off, with a  faster inside section.  When the swell is up it can get big- double/triple overhead can be ridden. Panga gets west and north swells, so you’re guaranteed all year to catch great waves. 

When it comes to the best place to stay for your surfing trip, it’s the LOCATION, LOCATION LOCATION that’s the most important. Instead of searching for waves via boat or on a sketchy 4 wheel drive on bad roads our guests are already right at the best surfing spot in all of Nicaragua.

Staying at our condo you will avoid travel time, avoiding getting up very early (unless you want to!)  or walking over a mile down to Colorado.  You are 25 seconds from Playa Colorado and a 10 minute walk down the beach to Panga Drops. 

To get the latest surf report you literally could just lift yourself up in your bed and take a look out the window at Playa Colorado; we’re directly in front of the break and you can see it out your bedroom window or from the patio . You can be the first surfer out if you like and then take a break between sessions for lunch or a siesta.

And you will have the sunset session all to yourself when others leave before it gets dark.
