San Juan del Sur is gaining recognition as a popular surf destination. Its small community, quaint streets and colorful local spots are awesome, but it also offers a wide variety of activities and adventure excursions to choose from daily.
You can do this any day in the morning or in the afternoon any week day, and the all day trip on weekend, the boats (pangas) have the equipment for fishing; but if you are interested in surfing or snorkelling during the trip then it will be necessary to rent surfboards, snorkels and masks in a surf store we will recommend you. Fishing out of San Juan del Sur often leaves a memorable experience. Fish like marlin, sailfish, dorado, wahoo, and yellowfin tuna can be caught offshore.

Sea Turtles Tour
La Flor beach is a protected wildlife reserve because of the vast arrival of Olive Ridely turtles during massive “arribadas” that take place every year between July and January. The Olive Ridley turtles come to the beach en masse, during so called arribadas in which thousands of turtles arrive at the same time to lay their eggs. This way, the hatchlings will swarm the beach in huge numbers and in doing so they increase their chance of survival. Wildlife Reserve La Flor measures more than 3,000 hectares and is located 22 kilometers south of San Juan del Sur. It is one of the places in Nicaragua where you can observe the arribadas of Olive Ridley turtles.
The school can help you to organize surf trips to the best breaks, like Maderas, Yankee, Escameca, Popoyo, Panga Drops, Manzanillo and Colorado. San Juan del Sur and its surrounding beaches are those places that offer everything a traveling surfer could want. There is consistent year round surf, warm water, and a chance to surf a great break all by yourself. Come and see why Nicaragua is the first destination of many travellers of all parts of the world!
