Summary

Imagine a surf trip where you have the “local knowledge” that will allow you to surf top-quality, uncrowded waves each day of your adventure. Surf Tours Nicaragua gets you access to Nicaragua surf that would be all-but impossible to find on your own, not to mention a huge hassle!   Our specialty is providing you with a no-hassle, highly experienced, Nicaragua surf adventure where you are sure to get some of the best waves of your life. Have a look at what our guests say on our Testimonials page for proof! Surf Tours Nicaragua provides surf tours of the uncrowded waves in north-central Nicaragua.   Surfing Nicaragua with us is an experience unlike any other because: We are north and central Nicaragua’s original Surf Camp and Surf Tour – our guides and staff are the most experienced and professional in all of Nicaragua, hands down. Don’t be fooled by the rest when you want the best of Nigaragua. Crowds are our enemy – our experience means we know more spots and the best times to get you to them to ensure you get uncrowded and empty lineups…not to mention we have secret surf spots that only we know about!

We keep our operation small – max. 11 surfers if multiple groups, or 15+ for cohesive groups – to ensure that northern Nicaragua doesn’t become overcrowded like surf in Costa Rica and southern Nicaragua (Popoyo and San Juan Del Sur). We are the closest operation to the airport in Managua (MGA), allowing you to maximise your Nicaragua surf time during your Nicaragua surf tour. We will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. We provide you with individual attention surpassed by none.

ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS



The surfcamp consists of two places to stay, both have a waterfront location. 
Nicaragua’s north Pacific coast is relatively undiscovered, and thus provides an opportunity for surfers to experience what surf in Nicaragua and Central America was like 20 years ago. Nicaragua is the safest country in Central America, which guarantees that your experience will be one of pure enjoyment!

Here at STN, we are all about getting you into uncrowded surf. There are over 25 different surf spots that we get you access to in our custom-built surf pange (yeah…we have the only boat with T-top, board racks and stereo, and “Surf Tours Nicaragua I” is fully rigged for sport fishing) and in our three 4×4 rigs.



CAMP CHARACTER



A smaller group size is usual with max. 11 participants. This camp is more of a relaxed style of camp, family friendly and with higher quality standards. Since it consists of two locations where you can stay it creates a less crowded atmosphere.



CAMP OPERATOR



Alex

Originally from London, England. He has been travelling since the age of 4! and has lived in Europe, Fiji, Canada, USA, NZ and Australia.  After 2 years of architecture he got a 200-ton captains licence and crewed on super yachts for several years in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Pacific.   Alex has been surfing in Central America since 2002. In 2006 found himself back in Costa Rica where he started the Costa Rica Surf Institute. He and his wife, Larkin, took over as owners/operators of STN in June 2010.

 

Larkin

Larkin was born in San Antonio and raised in San Diego, California. Growing up in a border town sparked Larkin’s curiosity of different cultures. After Majoring in Anthropology at Portland State University Larkin booked her ticket to Costa Rica in 2006 in hopes of learning Spanish. She came home from her trip with love in her heart for both surfing and for Alex. Larkin is a Yoga Alliance Certified 200RYT yoga teacher, and specializes in Classical Hatha and power flow disciplines.


Greg, a.k.a. “Goyo”

Has come to us with a stellar background in hospitality management and a lifetime passion for all things watersports.  He is an avid fisherman, scuba diver, spear fisher, sailor, and of course surfer.  He cut his teeth in the hospitality industry working for famous chefs Wolfgang Puck and Thomas Keller; His hotel experience was working with Wynn, MGM and The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.  Greg grew up on the beaches of San Diego and moved to Santa Cruz to attend University.  There he realized So-Cal was just the beginners class as Northern California produced some of the biggest and best waves in the world.  Always up for a laugh or the next adventure, he will be your fearless leader during your stay at La Flor Surf Camp.

SURROUNDINGS / REGION



Characterization of surroundings/Nicaragua

Land of Lakes and Volcanoes

Nicaragua takes its name from Nicarao, chief of the indigenous tribe then living around present-day Lake Nicaragua. A friendly and peaceful country that at times, received an undue share of negative press, Nicaragua is really one of the safest places to visit in Central America. With more than a decade of political stability, this democracy has moved steadily forward, leaving behind the war-torn ’80?s, remembered as one more chapter in it’s turbulent past.

The nickname “land of lakes and volcanoes” describes this beautiful and fascinating country well. Two great lakes, Xolotlán (Lake Managua) and Cocibolca (Lake Nicaragua) occupy roughly 10 percent of the countries surface area, and are the largest in Central America. Running nearly parallel to the pacific coast is a chain of 58 volcanoes, six of which are active. The country also boasts the longest rivers in Central America, vast coastal lagoons, and hundreds of miles of sea coast. As the largest and lowest Central American country, Nicaragua is essentially an emerging “land bridge” between Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Centrally located between North and South America, Nicaragua has benefited from the astonishing blend of flora and fauna from the two continents.


Nicaragua Currency

Nicaragua’s currency is the Cordoba, named after Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba, the Spanish founder of the colony of Nicaragua. The U.S. dollar is also an official currency in Nicaragua, and it is advisable that travelers from other nations bring currency in U.S. dollars. Major credit cards are increasingly accepted throughout the entire country. As of September, 2008, the exchange rate of Cordobas to U.S. Dollars was roughly 19 codobas to 1 dollar.
