"Central American eco-lodge has gentle beachbreaks"

Simple, beautiful and just simply beautiful – the Central American based eco-lodge known as Los Cardones removes you from the noise of racing traffic and the headache of hectic schedules to give you some well earned downtime, bang smack next to the ocean. This Nicaraguan surf lodge, just 1 hour from Managua Airport, has something for everyone it would seem. Gentle beachbreaks perfect for learning or gnarly reef breaks dishing up something for the experts only.

"Most of the bungalows and cabanas are beach front"

Your accommodation while a guest at Los Cardones surf lodge comes in the form of wooden bungalows or cabanas depending on your party's needs and size. All have an eco-design, hammocks for lazing away the tropical day in between surf sessions and lounge chairs for some ocean gazing by day and star dreaming by night. Most of the bungalows and cabanas are beach front so it will only take a step or two to feel the sand between your toes. Let the ocean be your night time lullaby, wake to the sound of birdsong and then mull over what the day will bring as you eat your breakfast in the on-site restaurant.

"Asuchillo serves up consistent A-frame waves"
