The reefs and beach breaks are good to epic on the higher tides with the points following at the lower tides but you won't have to worry about a thing, we have an experienced team of surf guides that will take you where it will be breaking according to the tides each day.

Surf Seasons in Nicaragua
The best swells in Nicaragua are caused by tropical storms, which occur mostly during the rainy season, so the main surf season in Nicaragua is winter, from May to November, when waves are higher and more consistent. Usually the waves are more than 7 feet high (2 meters) with consistent long period South swells, accompanied by off-shore winds and some rain.
- April to November: 4-6 ft. consistent swells with bigger 8-12 ft. swells
- November to January: waist to chest high offshore perfection
- February and March: mid-size swells, always offshore
