Surfing Nicaragua, San Juan del Sur and Playa Maderas
with Rancho Cecilia!
Enjoy a great surfing vacation in Nicaragua with over 300 days a year of off shore winds!
Our off-shore winds are really the Caribbean trade winds which blow across the country, from the Atlantic Coast.
These winds blow across Lake Nicaragua, the largest fresh water lake in Central America and across to our Pacific Coast, providing us with our wave grooming winds.
