This is a cumbersome ride to an amazing spot, but we happened to go on a day where it was so windy we couldn't spend time on the beach and had a hard time keeping our drinks from flying away. Service was great and the...More

Da Surf Spot was a like a hidden gem on our Nicaraguan vacation. We refered to it as "Scoobie's on the beach" after their little adorable, big eared pooch! The location is perfect, right on the beach. And the family that run it are so...More
