Summary

Playa Maderas is one of the best, local surf spots in Nicaragua that offers a year-round, pumping beach break for beginners and advanced surfers alike. Playa Maderas Surf is known for some amazing left and right breaks, in spots that local surfers will bring you to. Strap your board on the shuttle and catch the sunrise out on the waves. The surfing community is welcoming and has a host of surf trips that even solo adventurers can sign up for, maybe even make some life long friends. Since the coast is set amidst the backdrop of forestry teeming with life, a hoard of other, equally exciting activities is available to jump on, like zipline San Juan del Sur, hiking, trekking, and more. Beach life couldn’t be more exciting. Far away from the lights and noise of the city, the Emerald Coast offers the serene tranquility of a supremely grounded sense of being. Local yogis offer classes to re-center and recharge. Schedule a relaxing massage and breathe in the smell of exotic oils as they seep deep into your skin to nurture and rejuvenate tired and sore muscles and spirits. If you’re feeling like an adventurer, take the Marsella boat trip. Maybe you’ll get lucky and catch a fish or two that locals can cook for dinner. Take those Insta-worthy photos and revel in the salty sea air and the warm rays of the sun.

Characterization of surroundings/region

Nicaragua officially the Republic of Nicaragua is bordered by Honduras in the North and Costa Rica in the South, the Caribbean Sea in the East and the Pacific Ocean in the West. 

Nicaragua has three geographical regions: Pacific lowlands, Central highlands and Caribbean lowlands. On the Pacific side are two big freshwater lakes (the largest in Central America), one of them is Cocibolca Lake or  Nicaragua Lake. This lake is home to some of the world's rare freshwater sharks. Nicaragua also is known as the land of volcanoes, there are around 40 volcanoes, many of which are still active, have sometimes devastated settlements but also have enriched the land with layers of fertile ash.

Nicaragua is home to a rich variety of plants and animals. There are currently 78 protected areas in Nicaragua, wildlife refuges and nature reserves that shelter a wide range of ecosystems. In addition to lakes, volcanoes and nature, the Pacific lowlands contains most of Nicaragua's Spanish colonial architecture and artifacts. Cities such as Leon and Granada abound in colonial architecture; founded in 1524, Granada is the oldest colonial city in the Americas
