Your own Surf Sanctuary at Playa Maderas
Nicaragua’s surf capital San Juan del Sur is a 30min drive from the campsite. The area is home to the country’s most legendary surf spots, suitable for both beginners and pros alike. At our Nicaragua surf camp we offer surf lessons by experienced and knowledgeable local instructors. To make roaming around easier, we provide shuttle service to the best surf spots in the area. Nightly shuttles to town for those willing to indulge in post-surf parties can be arranged on demand.
Outstanding accommodation overlooking the jungle
Our surf resort resides in a spacious villa high up in the hills over Playa Maderas. You’ll reach it in no time with our 4×4 shuttle or in 15min on foot from the bottom of the hill. You can choose to stay in group bungalows, luxurious apartments, or private glamping tents. Overlooking the jungle and the Pacific ocean, the amenities of the villa offer the maximum amount of relaxation for our guests.

Experience the exotic nature of the surroundings straight from your bed, private patio, or breakfast table. Witness one of the most beautiful sunset locations in Nicaragua from our yoga deck. The highlight of our Playa Maderas surfing holiday in Nicaragua is definitely the infinity pool overlooking the jungle below and the Pacific Ocean in the distance. It offers you the ultimate view where you can soak in the breathtaking surroundings of the camp while enjoying a cooling swim or a post-surf cocktail.
After the surf it’s your choice once more: either have a yoga session on the panoramic yoga deck or jump directly into the infinity pool and have your after surf drink at the breathtaking view of a sun setting between the jungle hills over the ocean. Finally, let our chef spoil you with the delicious dishes of the day, including a variety of vegetarian and vegan options.
The location in Nicaragua ranks among the top destinations for surfers mainly because of the consistency in weather is optimal for surfing year round. This area prides itself with around 330 days of offshore winds per year. This means perfect surf conditions all day every day! Nicaragua has more than 250 kilometers of coastline on the Pacific Ocean.
There are two main seasons in Nicaragua; the green or wet season (aka the low season), and the dry or hot season (aka the high season). The green season is from May to November which is the time frame when the Pacific coast gets hit with the biggest swells and most consistent surf. These months are prime time for the more experienced surfer to consider surfing Nicaragua.
Also, there tends to be not as much tourism during that season while south swells are in full swing and waves are often consistently overhead and good to epic. January and February experience the strongest winds and upwelling so the water tends to be a bit colder than normal. The waves usually are the smallest this time of year which is ideal for beginner surfers.
during this Playa Maderas surfing holiday in Nicaragua we provide daily shuttle services, beach transfers, and boat rides from and to the camp. From Playa Maderas, you can easily travel to Playa Remanso, Playa Hermosa, or Tamarindo. Going north to places like Playa Manzanillo, Colorado, or Panga Drops by boat is also a breeze and can be organized on demand.
Through the local scout network, you can track the area’s most ideal conditions. Rapture Surf Camp provides daily information on which is the perfect surf spot for your level. Surfing in Nicaragua is truly perfect year round. Make your next surf trip unforgettable by joining a Playa Maderas surfing holiday in Nicaragua.
