You can find good surf camps in Popoyo, just beside Astillero. If you want they take you to other spots in the region.
No crowd, hot water, and perfect waves. I think you won´t leave early.

Surf trip Nicaragua - Hi guys,
I just come back from a surf trip in Nicaragua. We've had really good waves and uncrowded.
We've been surfing to Colorado, Santana, Popoyo, astillero and some other spots up north where you can access only by boat.
We,ve stayed in a new place, an eco surf lodge, Las Plumerias, between Popoyo and astillero.
Emeline and Etienne, the owners are from France, really friendly, they tell you the best spot to go surfing and the food is awesome!!! You have to try the desert!!!
The place is amazing and my girlfriend really enjoyed it, chill out, enjoying the beach when I was surfing, you know that!!!
They organise, all inclusive surf trip,surf guide and surf school and only girls weeks. I really recommand that place for your next trip in Nicaragua.
Check the website, www.lasplumerias.com
Thanks a lot guys, for sure we'll be back
