Ultimate Nicaragua Surf Trip

SeaMonster Nicaragua surf trip packagesBook One!

Playa Colorado holds the best surf and most beautiful beaches in Nicaragua.

Located on a lush private estate known as Hacienda Iguana, Playa Colorado offers great waves, adventure, security, and relaxation that provides the ultimate vacation for surfers and families alike.

Enjoy surfing a variety of peaks and reef breaks up and down the beach, with offshore wind blowing open good barrels all day, everyday – a unique wind pattern found only in the southern region of Nicaragua.

Select Beachfront Houses:

Stay in one of a handful of comfortable beach houses sitting on the private beach of Playa Colorado, directly in front of the surf.

In-between surf sessions, cool off in the infinity pool with a refreshing beverage as you watch perfect waves peel up and down the beautiful white sand beach.

Beachfront houses sleep anywhere from 6 to 14 people in private and double occupancy rooms, and all share a spacious living area and kitchen.

Houses come furnished with high quality satellite televisions, sound systems with iPod hookups, and other creature comforts.  The showers pump out high pressure hot water, which is uncommon just about anywhere else in Nicaragua. Maid and pool service is also included.

Beach Condo:

Hacienda Iguana also offers comfortable and spacious luxury condominiums that sit near the river, set back roughly 100 meters from the beach at Playa Colorado.

The ocean and river views from all of the two and three bedroom condos are beautiful, allowing for surf checks from the open decks.

Condos also come with quality furnishings, large kitchens, high pressure hot water showers, two bathrooms, flat screen televisions, iPod jack sound systems, and sleep 6 to 7 people comfortably.

Hacienda Iguana also holds the only maintained golf course in all of Nicaragua.

The Surf:

The surf at Playa Colorado is world-class.  Since the beach and surf is only accessible by those staying at Hacienda Iguana, or by the few surfers who get dropped off by boats or take lengthy walks from neighboring beaches – the surf and beach remain unspoiled so you can always find a peak all to yourself.

There’s a good chance you’ll get the best barrel of your life right in front of your house and friends.

Surf Variety:

The beach at Playa Colorado has a variety of surf spots including reef and beach breaks that have something to offer surfers of all abilities.

There’s always a great spot to learn how to surf on your own, or with a talented and gracious surf instructor.

The beach at Playa Colorado is great for the entire family, surfers and beach lovers alike.

If a big swell is running and the surf in front of your house is more hollow and powerful than you care to ride, simply take a two minute walk up the beach to find more playful conditions.

If you continue another five minutes up the beach, you’ll come to a really fun reef break called Ponga Drops.  Ponga Drops is a good peak that offers long lefts and rights suitable for all surfing levels.

Stand-up Paddle and Kayak Options:

The clean, clear, and warm river running onto the beach at Playa Colorado (forming good sandbars), is three kilometers long and provides a great place for stand-up paddling and kayaking.  Up the river you’ll see large iguanas, song birds, and curious monkeys swinging from the trees over head.

The surf in front of the river mouth is some of the best in the world.

Wildlife Walks and Horseback Riding:

There’s an easy walking trail that hugs the river, if you care to take an adventurous stroll off the beautiful beach.

The path is great for a cool walk in the shade with friends and the kids.  There’s a small village up the trial with a nice local community that offers horseback riding along the jungle trails and beach.

Transportation and Airport Transfers:

We’re there for your arrival in Managua with a nice new air-conditioned van to take you on the 2 to 3 hour ride to your beach house at Playa Colorado.

If you feel like taking a trip outside of Hacienda Iguana, rides with knowledgeable drivers can be easily arranged to check out neighboring beaches, new waves, cultural areas, communities, and anywhere else you like to go along the rustic 4×4 dirt roads.

There are many incredible natural and cultural sights to see if you feel like venturing outside of Hacienda Iguana. Checkout red-hot lava flows, hike volcano islands in the giant lake that are teeming with wildlife, visit historic towns for shopping and sight seeing, and so much more.

Boat Trips:

Boat trips are a great option and recommended to all surfers to satisfy a complete trip.  A new canopy covered ponga boat with powerful 4 stroke engine will pick you up right in front of your house and take you to some incredible secret surf spots, to go deep-sea fishing, or to visit beautiful beaches around each lush point.

The views from the boat trips are incredible because most of the land surrounding Playa Colorado is untouched and inaccessible by car.


Playa Colorado is a surf photographers dream. With hollow waves breaking so close to shore, photographers and spectators can get amazingly close front row views of the action.

Packages come complete with surf a photographer who ensures you get awesome photos of your surf sessions.


Feast on as many delicious lobster tails, grilled fish, ceviche, fresh local fruit, savory deserts, and a variety of other local favorites served throughout the day by the talented cook included with your beach house or condo.

In-Country Experts:

Mateo and Buzz will be two of your knowledgeable and valuable in-country resources who are always there for you, ensuring you’re well taken care of.

Mateo is from San Diego, California, and moved to Nicaragua after teaching school in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Matthew “Mateo” Blevins

Buzz grew up in La Jolla, California, and has been surfing for over 40 years.  He traveled the world over before residing at Playa Colorado.

Both Mateo and Buzz surf really good, know exactly where to be and when to be there for the greatest sessions of the day, and are always having a good time. They’re friends with everyone in the community and enjoy sharing their local knowledge with visitors.

Surf Consistency:

Playa Colorado is one of the most consistent surf spots on the planet, offering good waves year round, but is biggest during the summer months (April – October) when south swells are strongest.

The water and air is warm year round.

Travel Easy:

With a quick and easy 6 hour flight from California, you can be surfing epic waves, lounging out in your big beautiful beachfront house, eating freshly prepared meals, taking boat trips to secret spots and world class fishing grounds, checking out the wildlife, taking a short stroll or paddle up the river, and hanging with your friends and family the warm beach.
