Waves for Every Season
Southern Nicaragua is perhaps the only place in the world where virtually year-round offshore winds and a wide swell window combine to produce consistently good waves – Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Waves for Every Skill Level
We’ve got world class beach breaks minutes from our lodge, a great left point break around the corner and a huge left outer reef to test your courage.
Beginner breaks are also close by for those with less experience.
Nicaragua is exposed to pretty much all southern swells, which guarantees a lot of waves throughout much of the year.
There is a considerable increase in the power and frequency of swells starting in April, which corresponds to the wet season and the slackening of the offshore winds.
Beginning in May or June through October we get tropical showers several times a week.
In late September or October the rains pick up a bit for a few weeks which is the warning that the wet season is nearly finished.
The “Lake Effect”
Lake Nicaragua provides a geographically smooth passage for the north easterly trade winds to pass through the Central American Isthmus. This results in consistent offshore wind along the pacific coast of the lake region.
Like the trades, the offshores intensify going into winter and moderate going into summer. More information on the “lake effect” can be found on our blog.
* Some days of swell too large for absolute beginners can be expected during these months
