Client reviews surf camp Nicaragua

My perfect surf holiday in Central America

The hosts were AWESOME. The atmosphere was cool. Great vibes. They seemed to always ask me if I needed something or serve food right when I needed it. They made us feel comfortable the entire time and were very supportive of our very novice surfing. Already told a ton of people about La Barra.

Sickest Place I've ever been by far. So many uncrowded surf spots just right out front of the house and even more just a short boat ride away. the staff is amazing food is good and you can always take a short walk down the street to the market for snacks. Cant wait to get back down there love this place

La Barra Surf Camp is the perfect place to stay if you want to score some central nicaraguan waves. There are at least 4 different waves in walking distance from the camp without any crowds. In a addition you can take a boat ride every day to various other waves including the perfect break Puerto Sandino (5 minutes from Camp). The Camp itself is beautifully located directly on the beach. Rooms are clean and food as well as service are excellent. Highly recommendated!!!!

From a surfing perspective you could not want more from a place. 3 class waves within viewing distance, awesome set up with pool and loads of chill out space, personal chef to rustle up whatever you wish for lunch and dinner and the most accommodating staff you'll ever come across.

This place is awesome! Overlooks three different breaks. One point break, one reef break (right in front), and a beach break. Rooms are clean and basic. Food is excellent! Two local Nicaraguan ladies cook up a storm for every meal. Delicious and healthy. Couldn't have asked for a better trip.


Stoked about our recent trip to The La Barra Surf Camp in Miramar. The staff is super friendly, fun and helpful - The accomodations are cool and comfortable - The house setup is solid with a sick view to boot - Meals were great and the kitchen staff was real flexible about whenever we wanted to eat - awesome to have the boat waiting in the wings for whenever we wanted to check out a different break or go trolling for tuna. This is a trip I would 100% recommend to anyone headed to Central Nicaragua, surfer or not.

This was my first trip to Nicaragua. I can definitely say it did not disappoint. The people were very friendly, food was incredible & the waves were insane. The vibe was super chill. If you are looking for a great trip at a great price definitely keep La Barra in mind.


This was my first time at a surf resort and after this experience I'm super excited to go back! Stayed at La Barra for 9 days, the service, food and accommodations was beyond what I expected. Within minutes of walking you have your choice of a couple killer breaks and the boats come daily to take you to a beach break less than 10 minutes away. All the staff has became my new bros! Definitely recommend staying there!


La barra has an unreal set up right on the water - several waves all within steps of the back door. the staff was on point 100 % of the time/ food was epic ( and in big portions) and the beer was always ice cold. would totally go back for my next trip.


I've travelled a lot through Mexico & Central America and this was by far the best trip ever. And keep in mind I'm a regular footer (most of these waves are lefts). The waves were all time, 4 waves within a 5-10 min walk. There are several more waves too, you just hop on the boat and your there in no time. The guys who ran the house were super cool and they can surf too. I ate better here 3x a day than I do back in the US. Well worth the money, this place is epic. I'm planning on checking out their spot in El Salvador next. Good times with good people! I'd definitely recommend it!


The house was great. Our trip of thirteen guys all had clean beds with AC in the rooms. plenty of space to hang out and relax after the each three hour long session. The food is top notch and the service was beyond expected. I plan trips every summer and would repeat this trip every year. Its not hype when they post about the spots out front and the boat trips. Its all true. The best trip ever.

This was my second trip to La Barra Surf Camp. Everything was taken care of by their friendly and informed staff. Very happy to have been part of such a fun trip. All I had to do was surf, eat, sleep and surf. One of the best vacations ever.
