Surf Rancho Santana

Surf Rancho Santana

Nicaragua’s southern Pacific coast offers some of the region’s best surf conditions, and at Rancho Santana, you’ll find a variety of waves that are perfect for both beginners and more ‘seasoned’ surfers.

There are more than 10 different surf breaks nearby, ranging from fast hollow reef breaks to pumping beach breaks to massive outer reefs. To help you catch the best waves during your visit, we offer group and private lessons & guided surf tours of the Popoyo area by both boat and car.

Surf Rancho Santana Nicaragua

Rancho Santana has three surf breaks right on property. Surf in front of the Clubhouse at Playa Santana & check out the left break at Playa Rosada – an exclusive surf break to only those staying within Rancho Santana.

Our most Southern beach, Playa Los Perros, is great for beginners.  A short walk along the sand brings you right to Panga Drops and Colorados – two of the more well-known breaks in Nicaragua. For more information on surfing in the area, check out our Surf Map.

To schedule tours, guides or lessons, please contact us at or inquire on-site at the Beach & Surf Club at Playa Los Perros.
