Surf

Surfing is a top activity at Rancho Santana for a reason: offshore breezes, warm water, and a variety of waves at multiple beaches create optimal conditions for beginners and experts alike.

Riding The Ranch’s Waves

Three of Rancho Santana’s five beaches are popular Nicaraguan surf spots among surfers. Experienced surfers flock to Playa Santana, a beach break that serves up powerful barrels that go left and right. Catch the best conditions here at mid to high tide. The same crowd also paddles out at Playa Rosada, known for its left point reef break. As for newbies, the place to be is Playa Los Perros, where the waves are more gentle and Rancho Santana surf coaches are ready to give you a lesson.

Surf Experiences

Surfers come from near and far to paddle along Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast. Take a private surf lesson or boat excursion in search of world-class waves.

Hangout for the Hang Ten Crowd

The Beach & Surf Club at Playa Los Perros is home to our Surf Shop, where you can grab gear (extra wax, rashguards, and tees, for example) and rent a board. Then, wander over to La Taqueria, also at Playa Los Perros, for shrimp tacos and refreshing tequila cocktails while you recap the day’s wins and wipeouts. But the ultimate post-surf spot is the Spa in El Bosque, where a massage can soothe paddle-weary arms.
