This trip was my second to Soma, the first about five years ago. It was very nice to see that it has thrived and continues with its "mission" to offer an authentic Nicaraguan experience. We were met in Managua (at the Hilton Managua Princess) for the 2 plus hour drive to Soma. Be warned, it is 1/2 way on a...

This place is wonderful! We did the inclusive surf package. The food was delicious and the staff was very helpful and friendly! We are beginner surfers and I felt very comfortable with our instructors Alessio and Bella. They rocked! Our room was really nice and spacious. I did not want to leave and I already want to plan a return...

Pros: The FOOD! The people! The waves! Practicing your Spanish! Cons: You'll want to tear up your passport and never leave. I don't even know where to begin. Casey was such a gracious host, the entirety of the staff was so friendly and amazing (shout out to Roberto, ¡a la orden!) and it felt like home the entire time. Most...

This was my second surf trip to Nicaragua but first visit to Soma. Great property, attentive staff and delicious food. Everything went smoothly from making the reservation to the airport transfers to the weeklong stay at the camp. Surf was in the "fun" range all week with offshore winds (maybe a little too much offshore but it's that time of...

We stayed at Soma at the end of December with our two teenage girls. We had an absolutely amazing time! The owners Bill and Casey are so nice and helpful, and the rest of the staff (especially Kevin and Roberto) were fabulous. We had never surfed before and took two surfing lessons with Bill and Kevin...they were incredibly patient and...

Visiting Soma was the vacation of a lifetime. I cannot say enough amazing things about it! Casey and Bill have really thought of everything. The resort is stunning. The bungalows are such a nice little oasis. The beds were super comfortable! The food was out of this world. I am still dreaming of the fresh juices and the fish and...

This was my 4th trip to Soma and I love it more every time I go. This time, I brought my mom - a non-surfer and someone who can't really be in the sun - so I was nervous she wouldn't have a good time. We all had a blast! This place is great for anyone who enjoy a vacation...

The drive from the airport in Managua to Soma turned out to be very interesting - we went from a bustling city to the sparsely populated Pacific coast through beautiful countryside, past an active volcano and a number of dormant ones. Our driver was quite knowledgeable about every part of the area we drove through and about the history and...

My wife and I spent three glorious days at this wonderful spot. Bill, Casey, and Kevin and the wonderful staff went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met.

I have traveled through many countries and I've stayed at numerous places and this resort by far was the best ever. I am an avid surfer and was able to catch some amazing waves. Kevin gave me some great pointers during some lessons and also took some awesome photographs of me catching waves. My girlfriend, who is a novice, learned...
