Within the Hacienda Iguana development where this property is located, there is a pizza restaurant/sports bar (1km from the house and knows as Don Eloy's) open nightly. Other restaurants worth checking out are Pili's kitchen (located just a couple miles outside the gate of Hacienda Iguana), Camino del San Gigante (located in Gigante), Soma (located in Las Salinas), Yolanda's (located in Limon) and Rancho Santana (ask NSR agent to make you a reservation- need 24 hours advance notice). There are a few pulperias (small local stores) that sell the basic necessities. You can find these stores in the villages of Limon (20min), Gigante (30min), and Las Salinas (30min). The best place to stop for groceries is a La Colonia or La Union supermarket in Granada or Maxi Pali in Rivas. Its best to stock up on your way from the airport to the house. We HIGHLY recommend stocking up on all or as many of the groceries you will need for your entire stay as you can on your way to the house OR
........if you don't want to deal with planning, shopping, and preparing meals arrange the Meal Plan option.
For $35/person/day you will arrive to a kitchen stocked full of food and drink (yes, even beer and rum). Arranging this service will allow you to head straight from the airport to the house and beach without the hassle of shopping and spending time in a grocery store. Three delicious, healthy, and generous meals will be prepared daily by the staff allowing you to relax and enjoy your vacation completely. More details and a list of meals offered is available upon request.
This property is located 2.5 hours drive from the airport. Ask your NSR agent to help you make your rental vehicle reservation (for either pick-up at the airport or a delivery right to your accommodations). 4wd is recommended during the rainy season months of May-October. If you prefer not to rent a car NSR has you covered. We have a fleet of reliable trucks and vans ready to offer you airport transport and daily sightseeing trips. NSR can also arrange boat trips to other breaks in the area.
Famed Colorado Beach Break is a 10-15 minute walk to the south. Colorado is typically fast and hollow and breaks only over sand. This is one of the best waves in Nicaragua. Just a two minutes walk down the beach to the south is Panga Drops. This is an intermediate to advanced wave in the surf season and an all abilities break in the regular season that breaks over rock and sand. This is generally a softer, easier wave to surf
The breaks of Manzanillo, Rosada, Santana, Popoyo, Astillero, etc. are accessible by boat or car. Ask us about arranging Boat trips.
This stretch of Nicaragua's coast receives good surf and wind conditions year round. Generally storm generated groundswell is most consistent from April-September. Winds generally blow offshore all day long in this part of Nicaragua. In October longer spells of onshore winds are common. Hurricanes in the caribbean can also negatively affect the otherwise dominant offshore wind pattern.
