Nicaragua Surf Camp & Surf Tours

Culturally authentic with stunning sunsets, Playa Gigante has the small town charm and exquisite beaches that will have
you coming back time and time again.

Our priority #1 is our guests’ happiness! Just check out our TripAdvisor page. If you need anything while you’re here, our staff will help you out. We want everyone to leave hoping to come back next season!

We’re located in a fairly isolated area near the Rancho Santana and Hacienda Iguana developments. We’re 45 minutes from the nearest grocery store, so staying with us means that we do all the work for you!

You will be staying in a double occupancy room with A/C unit and private bathroom (and we won’t room you up with anyone from outside your group), located directly on the beach at Playa Gigante. Our boat will transport you to over 16 surf breaks, which is typically three boat sessions per day, starting with dawn patrol. We will make sure you get your fill of the pristine Nicaraguan beaches and unforgettable waves before you leave!

Three delectable, well balanced meals are served camp-style daily, as well as dawn patrol cereal and coffee. We will also be having one or two dinners per week at local restaurants. Our tours are truly all-inclusive. That means all meals, all surf transportation (typically 3 boat trips per day for Boat Tours, 2 truck trips for Beginner/Intermediate), local beer, rum, and sodas, and transfers to and from the camp are included. There are no hidden costs or tabs to run up. You just need to bring a little extra cash for souvenirs, ding repair, and tips for the guides.

Our check-ins and outs are at noon, and we offer a 3% discount for paying the balance in cash. Last airport pick-up each day is no later than 3:00 pm. Stays shorter than 8-days/7-nights do not include airport transfers. A full list of our amenities and accommodations can be found here.
