Surf Nicaragua receives consistent groundswell in the head high/plus range from April through September. Much of this time is in the rainy season, but you can generally expect no more than 30-60min of rain per day. The famous Tola offshores are prevalent at this time of year with occasional bouts of onshore winds when systems approach either coast. October is the rainiest month in Nicaragua and onshore winds are common. November-March sees some windswell, small groundswell, and constant offshores. This is a great time for beginners and those who enjoy mellower conditions.
Villa Lupita is right at the break on Playa Rosada a left hand rock reef that likes south swell and breaks best at low tide. A short walk (5 min) from Rosada is Playa Santana a peaky beachbreak that breaks best on a high tide. Guests of the house also have access to Playa Colorado and Panga Drops. The waves here are hollow and fast and can work at all tides. Panga Drops is a wave that breaks over rock and sand, it usually has more size than any surrounding breaks. This is generally a softer, easier wave to surf great for intermediate to advanced during the Surf Season and for all levels from November through March. The Popoyo and Astillero surf zones are within 20minute drive from the house. Manzanillo and Playgrounds can be accessed by boat.
