nicawaves is open

Nicawaves has been successfully hosting guests since August 2020. We already have some dates full for April 2021. Please reach out to make sure you will get your desired dates.

flights are open! avianca is the only airline flying to nicaragua

Avianca is the only airline flying to Nicaragua. We do not recommend buying a ticket on any other airline besides Avianca. The other airlines are still selling tickets but are not actually flying. We will update this space as soon as any airline besides Avianca flies into Nicaragua. As of January 2021, direct flights from Miami to Managua on Avianca are selling for around $300 each way. If you are on the west coast, you can fly from LAX or SFO to San Salvador, and take an Avianca flight from San Salvador to Managua. Besides flying on Avianca, the only other way to reach Nicaragua at the moment is to fly into Liberia or San Jose, Costa Rica and cross the border by ground. We are only an hour and a half from the CR/Nica border.  Please reach out to us with any questions.

covid-19 in nicaragua

Fortunately, lack of international travel and the Nicaragua people’s preventative measures have resulted in very few cases of COVID-19 in Nicaragua, the lowest in all of Central America. If you have stayed with us before, you know that we have an isolated location and hot climate. There have been no confirmed cases in our area. The only restriction in Nicaragua is presenting a PCR-RT test completed within 72 hours within your arrival.

new cancellation Policy

Naturally, you may have questions regarding date changes, cancellations, deposit refunds, etc. when planning your surf trip. In light of the situation, we have modified our policy.

  • Deposits for a new surf trip are $150 rather than the regular $250
  • There is no penalty for changing your surf trip dates until June 2021.
  • We will issue a 100% refund if a cancellation is necessary, no questions asked.
  • You have the option to use your deposit toward a future surf trip if you must cancel or change dates.
