Overview

Get immersed into surfing and its lifestyle. We offer a full week surf camp in San Juan del Sur. Our travellers sleep in a private villa in the safe and quiet neighborhood of La Talanguera. It's a perfect location, less than 10 minute walk from town, 1 minute walk from the beach. Away from the noise but still walking distance from beach bars and restaurants. Our surf camp is ideal for beginner surfers, or intermediates who want to develop their surfing skills. We have a team of surf guides from across the globe, mixed with top Nicaraguayan surf coaches from the Nicaragua National Surf Team. Our packages include airport pick-up, breakfast, accommodation in private villa, surf equipment, surf lessons, surf pictures and technique analysis.
