Costa Dulce is located beachside at pristine Playa Escameca Grande. Wake up and the beach is waiting! Uncrowded waves are right in front of the hotel or learn to surf in one of our surf yoga retreats.  Our local guides will show you the way just steps away from your bungalow. 

Our surf retreats are led by guides who are really stoked to do what they love and we get to pass that love on to you. A surf and yoga retreat in Nicaragua could be a life changing experience. 

Costa Dulce provides the perfect opportunity to learn how to surf. This is your chance! Nicaragua is a great place to learn but many try and do it at the crowded and more popular surf breaks. Playa Escameca is far enough away from San Juan del Sur that it does't attract the same crowds as the beaches closer to town. And the waves are perfect for beginners. The more waves you can catch the quicker you will learn how to surf. And when you stay this close to the waves you will be in the water at every opportunity. Check out our Surfing Utopia package.  We also offer daily surf lessons for those make the trek out from San Juan or for people who just  want to try it out as well as surfboard and SUP rentals

Experienced surfers will will enjoy the escape to a remote location, beautiful waves with lack of lineup and Playa Yankee. Anyone who has been surfing the crowded beaches around playa Maderas will be really stoked on the lack of crowds. 


Enjoy the waves out front on playa Escameca or if you want a wave that barrels it's a short walk through the woods to Playa Yankee. It's primarily a left hand wedge. Nicaragua has plenty of amazing surf breaks and hidden waves nearby, so ask us about day trips available!

Southern Nicaragua is blessed with offshore winds for more than 300 days a year, the surf is almost always excellent. You would be hard pressed to find a more consistent area to surf.

During the dry season the January through March the waves are smaller and more suited to beginners or longboarding. Due to the strong offshore winds the water cools down. You might want to bring a little bit of rubber. A wetsuit top or springsuit can be nice. It might be a bit chilly but the waves are perfect to learn how to surf on during these months. 


Costa Dulce has a wide variety of surfboards to rent. We have lot's of good quality soft tops perfect for the beginner surfer. Classic longboards for the days when you just want to cruise. Fun boards for the intermediate surfer. And all kinds of short boards for when you want to rip. We also have SUP's for rent and an awesome lagoon to explore in flat water and see some awesome wildlife. Costa Dulce has all of you surfboard rentals covered . We also have a few wetsuits for rent for when the water cools down.
