Surf Camp in Nicaragua
7 Days in San Juan del Sur

Surf trips in Nicaragua are currently suspended because of a political conflict. Travellers are not targets in this conflict and towns such as San Juan del Sur have remained calm and peaceful. The main problem is to guarantee transportation to and from the Managua airport. As a preventative measure, we have suspended the trips until the conflict is resolved and we can operate normally. We have adapted our calendar with more Surf Trips to Ecuador and Costa Rica.
