Located between El Salvador to the north and Costa Rica to the south, Nicaragua is easily accessible for surf travel from anywhere in the US.

Nicaragua has one of the most beautiful and dramatic coastlines in Central America.  Long, gentle Caribbean beaches, volcanoes and freshwater lakes dot the hilly inland.  Colonial cities such as Granada, offer visitors a taste of colonial Spain while the capital of Managua is rapidly becoming global city.

Nicaragua’s adoption of the Costa Rican model for government stability, economic growth and prosperity is paying off.  Nicaragua is the safest country in Central America and among the safest in the world with a lower relative crime rate than the U.S., France and Germany.
