Nicaragua is the up-and-coming destination for those looking to escape crowded surf spots and pristine beaches in Central America. Whether you're a surfer or not, we're sure you'll find something to love about this colorful country.


Until recently, Nicaragua was not regarded as the most popular of destinations to visit in Central America. That's all changed in the last ten years, and the country has seen an uprising of boutique outposts to support the new influx of visitors. Get there before the word really gets out! Empty beaches, wild jungles, and steep volcanoes await. 


Our favorite base camps in Nicaragua are on the western side of the country near the Pacific Ocean.


One of our primo spots in Nicaragua, Rancho Santana is home to miles of horseback riding and bike trails, swells perfect for beginners and experts alike, and five private beaches frequented only by the local turtles. Morgan's Rock is another prime surf spot nearby. Or head inland to Jicaro Island Ecolodge where you'll stay on an island in the middle of Lake Nicaragua, hiking Cerro Negro volcano by day and tasting rum by night. Whether you're planning a Central America vacation for a romantic retreat or a family-focused week in the sun, we'll help you customize a fabulous itinerary to suit everyone's interests and tastes. Salud!
