Located just north of San Juan del Sur, Playa Maderas is one of the most consistent and popular surfing spots in Southern Nicaragua. Surfers from all over the world come to Maderas to shred waves. With stunning views, small crowds, and near perfect weather, you can spend your entire day surfing, and relaxing. Don't know how to surf? No problem! There are several surf schools located nearby—take a private or group lesson or spend a few days at a surf camp. Even if surfing isn’t your thing, you’ll want to try it out at least once you get to Playa Maderas.
