Nicaragua - The secret tip for your next surf trip
Best Travel Time
Nicaragua is quickly becoming one of the more popular surf destinations in not only Central America, but the world. The surf conditions are ideal all year with constant swell on the Pacific Ocean side and 340 days of offshore winds. Nicaragua has a tropical climate, with a dry season, which lasts from December to April, and a rainy season that goes from May to October, with variable conditions in November. If you decide to travel in the rainy season it won’t mean that it rains all day, every day, it just means there are daily showers, some of which are heavy, and the humidity is higher. The offshore trade winds, named Papagayos by the locals, blow every month apart from October where you sometime experience an onshore breeze. We recommend travelling to Nicaragua anytime from December to April, its dry, its warm, the waves are great and the offshore winds aren’t too strong. Air & Water Temperature
The average water temperature is 27°C. It can drop a little below this with the strong offshore winds, so if you are sensitive to slightly cooler water temperatures you can bring a spring, or thin full wetsuit for your trip. The air temperature averages around 30°C throughout the year, including the rainy season. Wetsuit
If you want you can bring a spring suit, or thin full wetsuit when travelling to Nicaragua, but most people are fine with boardshorts or a bikini.

Nicaragua

Nicaragua has been flying under the radar as a surf destination, but recently it has started gaining popularity, and becoming recognised as a great place to go to catch great waves with empty line-ups, discover amazing landscapes, meet friendly people and eat delicious food. The best thing is you can travel to Nicaragua any time of year and score great waves & weather. Nicaragua is located in Central America with El Salvador & Honduras to the north, and Costa Rica to the south. To the east you have the Caribbean Ocean, and west the Pacific where you have the most consistent surf conditions, with steady swell and 340 days of offshore winds. As well as surfing, you have plenty of things to do including hiking through the tropical rainforest, climbing up an active volcano, checking out the wildlife both on land and in the ocean, or just soaking up the local culture. Nicaragua is an adventurers’ paradise where you will make amazing memories to last a lifetime.

Learn to Surf Nicaragua

What makes this Central American destination especially attractive to travelling surfers are the constant waves. You have the powerful Pacific Ocean at your doorstep with the Caribbean Ocean providing perfect offshore trade winds for the vast majority of the year. You also get to enjoy the tropically warm conditions both on land, and in the water. There are perfect waves for total beginners and pros’ alike near the camp. You have the mellow beach break of Playa Madera to learn on and the heavy reef break of Popoyo to get your first huge barrel. If you are a more advanced surfer we recommend taking your own board as there aren’t a lot of surf shops in Nicaragua to provide high performance rental boards.
