ABOUT the surf lodge

Philosophy

The Las Plumerias surf lodge is situated in Popoyo, the perfect surf location with more than 15 surf spots that suit all levels of surfers. We are really lucky to have beach breaks, reef breaks, point breaks, and outer reefs all just minutes away. We have consistent swells, offshore winds, and uncrowded waves year long which allow us to surf morning and afternoon sessions every day!

Our large selection of longboards and shortboards is constantly updated and provides guests with the perfect board for all conditions and skill levels.

Located with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean and some of the best sunsets in the world, Las Plumerias provides absolute relaxation and comfort. We are reminded every day of the beauty of our natural surroundings and take every effort to protect the environment by running our surf lodge in an ecological manner. 

We provide an environmentally friendly, modern, and welcoming place to make your dream surf trip in Nicaragua come true.

»Best place
on earth«
My third time there and I can’t wait to go back again. The surf lodge, the people, the waves… everything is perfect! Recommended for all surf-addicted travellers! We are intermediate surfers and booked the „guided surfing“ which means that everything is organized. We usually did 2-3 surf sessions per day on different spots in the area. Between the sessions, went back to the surf lodge to eat and relax. The guiding was organized very professional and also includes information about the spots, surfing skills, photo sessions etc. If you look for plenty of waves, super-friendly staff, cosy accommodation and healthy food - this is definitively the place to go in popoyo Nicaragua!

»Can I stay
longer?«
Can I stay longer? What a small paradise place! The accommodation is very comfortable and cleaned everyday, the food cooked by Francisco and Maura is delicious and different every day and you feel like a little family in Las Plumerias, sharing all meals together. About the surf, hard to find a better place. The surf guides are dedicated to find the best surf spots, most of the time different and surfing without any other people and giving good tips to improve. We spend easily 4 hours in the water every day! I stayed 9 days in the surf lodge but would have stayed double if it would have been possible!

»I simply love
this place.«
I discovered the Las Plumerias surf lodge for the first time in 2009 and I have returned 6 times since (the last in 2021); I am looking forward to the 7th and for good reason: the place is magnificent, the meals are amazing, a happy team and as for the waves it is a paradise for surfers with the possibility of surfing all day long in rather exceptional conditions (perfect waves, few people at the peak and warm water). Everything feels homely and intimate, nothing is left to chance. Difficult to a find better surf lodge in popoyo, or even impossible...I simply love this place.

I have been coming since 2016 and Las Plumerias has helped me improve my surfing significantly. They make you feel like family and will find the best surf spots in popoyo for the day and level. They have multiple Beach-, point-, and reef-breaks within short driving distance that suit any surfing level.

»Las Plumerias
holds a special
place in my heart.«
My boys and I have done four separate surf trips there from the cold waters of Northern California and have absolutely scored each time. From the waves, the rooms and the staff Las Plumerias delivers. Always a good wave to be had, a great meal and and even better bed. Can’t wait for our next trip down there!
