Surfers in Nicaragua are spoiled for choiceThursday, March 12th, 2009
“Shall we surf Yankee or Madera, Colorado or Panga Drops?”
Surfers in Nicaragua are spoiled. You’ll find consistent lefts, barreling rights, peeling point breaks and hollow A-frame peaks to suit all levels of surfer.
What’s more, the waves are uncrowded and the water is warm – what more could a surfer want?
Part of what makes surfing so special is the wind which blows offshore at least 300 days a year.

Mulling over whether Nicaragua is right for you?Saturday, February 14th, 2009
Life is good for many people living abroad. Often mentioned are things like a lower cost of living, more affordable real estate, the experience of a new culture, cheaper healthcare and warmer weather.
And, for many, moving abroad is an opportunity for reinvention and a way to escape from the drudgery of 9-5 living.
Still, living overseas is not for everyone. The best way to determine whether Nicaragua is right for you is to come and experience it first hand.
