 Additional Information

Never leave valuables in the car since it may tempt people to break in. It is also dangerous to wander alone on isolated beaches around yhe area since me and many friends have been robbed at gunpoint. The spot itself has many good sections..A frame, lefts and rights..and an outer reef that is about a 15 minute paddle from shore. It can get huge! Popoyo is the most consistent spot in Nicaragua. We also have offshores 300+ days a year!

Popoyo - We are managing a hotel in front of the beach in Popoyo, look for us on facebook while we build the web page. Popoyo Hostel Nicaragua, beds from 10 usd rooms from 40 us. In front of the beach, 5 minutes walking from popoyo, the beach break at the door also works in the high tide! Ask for the taxi driver to take you at Casa Maur Hotel

surf conditions in november - Hey, finally we have decided to go to nicaragua in november rather than october... the rainy season should be at the end, and some swells should hit the Nica. We juste hope to surf more than 2 feets... Does anyone would like to share its experience about surf conditions in november? Positive testimony would make me more confident for a trip at this time of the year. We hope to visit some nicas barrels! Thanks in advance

surf conditions for october/november? - I am just planning a trip to nicaragua at fall, and i wonder about the surf conditions if we go there from Mid-october to Mid-november. I know this is the end of rainy season, and quite consistent there. But what about the wind? Do you think it is better to go earlier or later than our dates? Is there an area to prefer at this time of the year? Many thanks for any inputs.
