  • The Food at Giants Foot Surf Tours is not just Rice and Beans!

    The inspiration for this blog post came when I heard a local Nicaraguan band playing a song at our neighbouring Hostel’s open mic night that essentially consisted of the following lyrics, “Rice and Beans, Rice and Beans, every day it’s Rice and Beans.” Gallo pinto is a traditional dish of Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The speckled appearance of red beans on white rice is what gives the dish the name gallo pinto or gallopinto, which means, “spotted rooster.” Travelling in Central America for many conjures up images of rice and beans at every meal. While this is true for many Nicaraguans, at Giants Foot Surf Tours we pride ourselves in a varied menu.

    What you can expect to eat at Giants Foot Surf Tours

    Surf Nicaragua | Breakfast at Giants Foot Surf ToursAs a guest, you will experience some traditional dishes and the occasional rice and beans, but it is not present at every meal. The ladies who work in the kitchen are great cooks who prepare everything from fried chicken and potato salad to homemade breads and pizza. As mentioned in a previous blog post, there is also a weekly Burger Night in which Giants Foot Surf Tours opens up as a restaurant and a bar to locals and travellers. This is a fun night that allows our guests to mingle with others, while still in the comfort of their home away from home.  In addition to Burger Night, one night a week we also treat the guests to a night out at a local restaurant to experience more of what Gigante has to offer. Giants Foot Surf Tours is known for having epic meals. If you stay with us, you will surf Nicaragua with unlimited boat tours and then return for a home cooked meal.  All meals are included in your package with as much local beer, rum and soda's as you can drink!  You will receive coffee and cereal before dawn patrol. Upon your return to Giants Foot a second more filling breakfast will be served which usually includes some variation of the following: homemade crepes, homemade cinnamon buns, fresh fruit, eggs, potatoes, sausage and bacon. Wednesday breakfast is our manager Bryce’s personal favourite, loco moco, which is a Hawaiian breakfast that consists of rice topped with a hamburger patty, fried egg and gravy. Surf Nicaragua | Lunch at Giants Foot Surf ToursFor lunch you can expect something like pizza, homemade bread sandwiches, fish or chicken tacos, homemade pico de gallo and fresh fruit. Dinner varies but typically consists of steak or fried chicken with a side of homemade bread, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, rice and/or salad. After dinner there is often a dessert such as my favourite, coconut flan. As a staff member here, these meals are a huge perk of employment at Giants Foot. The guests are often surprised at our menu, considering it can be difficult to find food variety in Central America. We hope that after each surf session, you will look forward to coming back to one of our filling home cooked meals.  ¡Buen Provecho!

  • The lake effect of southern Nicaragua is surely one of the largest advantages to surfing in this region of Central America. With consistent swell, these strong off-shore winds groom the surf all day long, giving you the ability to surf multiple sessions and choose ideal tides without being compromised by afternoon on-shores. The Lake effect…

  • Playa Colorado Nicaragua is by far one of the most famous surfing spots in the country and rightly so. The name itself conjures images of deep cavernous Nicaraguan barrels and broken boards. This beast of a wave breaks over a shallow sandbar, left and right, depending on the condition of the sandbar. To really score it…
