La Barra Overview
Adventure Sports Tours “La Barra Surf Camp” is located in Playa Miramar just a short 2 hour drive from the Managua Airport. This region of Central Nicaragua is straight west of the capital of Managua and is one of the richest areas of surf in the country. Playa Miramar is a sleepy Nicaraguan fishing village with amazingly friendly locals that are always curious to meet you, and if you speak Spanish they will engage in a friendly conversation.
Less than 40 minutes away is the old city of Leon, Nicaragua where you can enjoy city trips, shopping, sightseeing at landmark churches from the 1600′s and enjoy a great Nicaraguan or American style dinner at many different restaurants. If you are into nightlife Leon turns into a party town Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays offering night clubs and bars packed with young adults from the six universities in Leon.
While you have several critical waves to choose from out front of La Barra Surf Camp, there are super fun waves that are accessible by 4×4 and boat. Beginners to intermediate surfers can enjoy beautiful beach breaks with long trips through the estuary onto a secluded beach with just a short walk through the jungle.
Surfing Central Nicaragua
Remote, uncrowded surf is what you will find when surfing in Central Nicaragua. This region of Nicaragua Surf is by far the most under-utilized and hard-to-reach surf in the country; boat access is necessary to get to the good stuff. Adventure Sports Tours offers two super Pangas at your disposal with the exception of day of arrival and departure. We do not charge for our boat trips, as it is part of your Surf Tour Package when traveling with AST in Central Nicaragua.
La Barra Surf Camp Testimonials
“Our trip with AST to Nicaragua was unreal! Perfect, wave rich set-ups of all variety were right out front of the house providing clean, offshore conditions all day… what more could a surfer ask for! From the moment we arrived until the end of our stay, the hospitality was top notch. The knowledgeable guides were able to bring us to the best waves utilizing AST’s ability to travel to secluded spots by car and by boat. With a perfect right and left just a short stroll down from the house, we had the freedom to surf anytime we wanted. AST in Nicaragua is truly something special. Anybody looking for a perfect surf retreat, look no further. All in all, great food, such wonderful people, and insane surf without any crowds. Thinking back on the trip, it was like a dream, all smiles.”
