- Went in may, Colorados was pretty packed, still got plenty of waves but that was because those staying at Iguana were pretty average. If there are rippers at Iguana when you're there probably a different story. Fast,hollow, makeable, doens't hold a big swell, overrated, don't need a boat to get there. better less crowded waves in CA for sure.
get on a boat - This wave can be a bit fast for beginners, but provides consistent, fun surf throughout the peak season as well as some epic days when the sand fills in. The crowd usually isn't too bad and can be avoided to some degree with early morning sessions, but you probably wont surf an entire session by yourself during peak season.
To answer anonymous' question, one may want to choose to go with an all inclusive (including boat, beer, transport, everything) surf camp, based in nearby Playa Gigante instead of renting a condo because Colorado isn't always the best option in the area and car rental, groceries (the nearest store is an hour from Hacienda Iguana) add up fast.

Colorados - Best Break in NIcaragua - I've surfed up and down the entire coast. This is the best wave by far. Why walk 2 miles or pay $$$ for a boat ride/surf camp when you can stay right on the break in the gated community of Hacienda Iguana? Check out playacoloradocondo.com for details.
come on... - walled... you must be riding long boards... or don't have the ability to pull in. i've had the best shacks off my life at colorados. we stayed at Mark and daves place and had a blast...
Not really worth the cost - I agree...mostly close outs and VERY CROWDED. I've made several trips to this place trying to get it good like in the pictures, but even during swells it's mostly closed out with only a few classic waves here and there. Not worth the cost and effort.
Mostly closeouts - you can tell from the pictures. I surfed there on a day that was called "all time" from the locals and it is a close out.
Going to the dogs - Sorry chaps, this is the unfortunate reality of Nicaragua. Americans snapping up coastal real estate, slapping down gated condos and excluding the rest of the world from their beaches unless you wanna pay your way. Spent 2 months there this year, head north of Las Salinas to get in touch with the real Nicaragua, stay with the locals and surf wherever you want. Nicaragua in 5 years = Costa Rica now
Why? - I wonder why the guy who owns Iguana Surf does not allow people to surf here.
Sounds like he has lost the spirit of what surfing is all about, maybe he never had it.
- Doesn't matter what you call it, this wave can get all-time. Super hollow.
idiot - where does the word 'colorado' come from? Who first explored and named colorardo? the spanish conquistadors. Your an idiot
