Learn to surf or catch the best wave of your life while staying minutes away from some of Nicaragua's best surf breaks.
Whether you're a seasoned surfer, have only caught a few waves and are looking to step up your game, or want to try surfing for the first time, we invite you to join this Nicaragua surf camp with our partners at Miramar Surf! On this Central America surf trip, we’ll explore the area’s consistent swells and enjoy the beauty of Playa Miramar and nearby Puerto Sandino, a sleepy, largely untouched, fishing town on the west coast of Nicaragua. Surfers have two options, the beginner package, which features surf lessons, or the advanced package, which will bring you to the best surfing in Nicaragua on a boat with an experienced captain. Both Nicaragua surf camp packages include all meals, lodging, and transportation while tailoring to your Central American surfing dreams, no matter what they may be.

Area Information
Playa Miramar, Nicaragua

This stretch of coast along the Nicaraguan west coast is home to some epic surfing and a beautiful, very low-key atmosphere. 40 minutes from historic Leon or 2 hours from Managua, the communities along Playa Miramar are close-knit and happy to show surfers the ropes of the area's amazing breaks. Be sure to also check out other local activities such as the nearby Cerro Negro volcano. From sandboarding to swimming the volcano’s cool, freshwater lagoon there is plenty to do within an hour of the beach.

 

Trip Planning

Trip Planning

With a general subtropical climate, Nicaragua is not as humid as other central American countries. The northern coast has an average temperature of 85 F and although it can be hot at times the Pacific usually brings a nice breeze into the area.

Nicaragua has two seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. The rainy season lasts from mid-May to mid-November, with October being the wettest month of all. It is not unusual in October to have rainstorms that last several days. Although there is more precipitation the rainy season is by far the best time to chase the best waves in the region. The swells come from the southern hemisphere and the surfing is better. Not to worry though, if you travel in the dry season, mid-November to the end of May, there will be more sunshine and still plenty of epic waves.

When packing for your Miramar surf trip be sure to follow the packing guide below and don't forget to bring cash. At least $10 USD cash to pay for your Nicaraguan entrance fee at the airport and to avoid credit card fees at the hotel, they will take USD.

Testimonials
Perfect place for anyone who wants to surf fun & constant waves. From beginners to advanced surfing, from big barrels to easy waves walls, they got it all. Also, the resort restaurant is incredible and the staff is friendly and helpful.

This is a beautiful camp that blends all-inclusive amenities with a nomadic, tranquil lifestyle very well. It is well run and very friendly and accommodating. The food was incredible, the aura inviting, the town quiet and the surfing stellar. We can’t wait to return!
