ABOUT THE SURF CAMP


LOCATION AND SURF CONDITIONS
Verdad is situated on the hills overlooking the beautiful sandy beach of Playa Escameca, which is on the Pacific side of Nicaragua, just north of Costa Rica and 20-25 minutes south of the town of San Juan del Sur.

Distances:
Town of San Juan del Sur - 20 to 25 minutes
Playa Yankee 15 minutes walk - (Yankee beach) left break and point break combine at the same time, stronger and a bit fast, good at mid-tide and high tide, for surfers that want to move from intermediate to advanced. Waves 3-6 feet.
Playa Escameca 10 minutes walk - (Escameca beach) left and right break perfect for beginner and intermediate with small swell, good for advanced with bigger swell. Waves 2-5 feet.
 
January and February (and possibly March) have stronger offshore winds, smaller waves, and you may need a wetsuit for surfing. 

March to December have light offshore winds and warm water around 80 degrees F.

CAMP CHARACTER
At Verdad we have a versatile atmosphere, frequently hosting large parties of multiple families, single travelers from all over the world, and groups of friends chasing good waves and better vibes. Not a backpackers' party hostel by any means, this is luxury at an affordable price. The beauty and serenity of the location will leave you feeling tranquil and relaxed, and you will be well-fed by the talented kitchen staff after long days of great waves. Treat yourself to a massage or yoga after paddling all day! Whatever your age or style, you'll fit right in here.
CAMP OPERATOR

Verdad is owned and operated by Marc Schultz, who founded the hotel with fitness and health at its cornerstones. The surf camp is run by lead instructor Wesley Bermudez, a San Juan Del Sur native who has been surfing Nicaragua for thirteen years and instructing for six years. Everyone catches waves after lessons with Wesley - everyone!
