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.

We offer beginner and novice surf lessons taught by either Liz or Scott, both of whom have been surfing non-stop for over 25 years!

We have been teaching people to surf for a couple of decades.
