Welcome to Playa Colorado.

First things first: surf season for the famous consistently perfect surf and conditions is March-August, offshore winds all day most every day and constant s/sw swells. Sept/Oct are rainy, muddy and onshore most days, Nov-Feb is too windy (offshore) and not much swell action. Yes there will be a fun day here and there in off season, but I would not recommend it if your goal is to surf. Furthermore, that is peak season in the Caribbean! I am in the Dominican Republic and will be here til March when I return to Nicaragua.. It’s epic here in DR in November

So we recommend booking your NIca Surf Trip during surf season (duh). Why book your Playa Colorado surf trip with Tony Roberts? Because you want all your waves on video and a trip movie starring you and your crew edited by one of the top surf photographers and surf movie producers in history. Besides a lifetime of worldwide surf travel/exploration credentials (compare to the others) TR was the first photographer here at Playa Colorado and has it more dialed than anyone. This experience also comes into play on every detail of your trip, from transport to accommodation, to any non-surfing activities you are interested in. He has assembled a team that is second to none in every way.

“Arriving in 2003 to Playa Colorado by sea, aboard The Crossing as Quiksilver staff photographer, I immediately fell in love with this beach. It was empty and there was not a single structure. We quickly figured out that the combination of a deep, underwater trench offshore funnelling in all swell energy, constant offshore winds due to the inland lakes constantly converging microclimates, made for the best and most consistent surf spot any of us had ever encountered in this region. Shortly thereafter Hacienda Iguana was born. I purchased property here and moved to Nicaragua full time. I was hired as the first Staff Photographer by the developers, and was the first surf photographer to work the beach here. Since then I have seen over a dozen seasons come and go, have made thousands of friends, and watched this empty beach transform into the most vibrant and fun surf resort in the region. The energy and stoke at the beach club every evening, after everyone has been getting tubed all day, must be felt to be appreciated.
