SURF LESSONS Playa Popoyo

The Best Surf Lessons in Popoyo!

Playa Colorado Surf School loves to run surf lessons at Popoyo beach, one of the most well-known surf spots in Nicaragua. Here, diverse surf breaks running along multiple reef sections offer something for surfers of all skill levels.

For beginner surfers there’s no sweeter spot to learn to surf than the aptly named Beginner’s Bay near the iconic Magnific Rock. Sheltered by an impressive shale rock shelf, Beginner’s Bay is a fun and easy wave that is approachable to everyone. Grab a long board and get on board with any one of our private, semi-private or group lessons today!

Further north in front of the surf town of Guasacate are the Popoyo surf breaks, with an inner reef breaking both left and right and an outer reef reserved for experienced surfers who can offer a real show in pipeline barrels. And if the beaches in the south are calling you down to Rancho Santana, Hacienda Iguana, or San Juan Del Sur, Playa Colorado Surfing School has got you covered. Say goodbye to dreaming about learning to surf and wave hello to the beauty and fun of Nicaragua’s surf coast today.
