I can't add much to what others have been saying on here already. Great people, great food and GREAT surf. The guys from STN are super fun to hang out with and they do make sure you get plenty of waves and give you a lot of tips to improve your surf. This is where you should go if you...

I'll echo many of the other reviews - STN is a little slice of Nicaraguan paradise. We pulled an 8 day trip together last minute and the team at STN were more than accommodating. We felt like family by the end of the trip - our crew had a blast! We scored every single day and surfed until we could...

Thank you Ryno for the great feedback about your stay with us here at Surf Tours. You definitely made the camp fun during your week with us.

Nicaragua and the Nicaraguan people are absolutely fantastic. The waves are great and the water temperature is nice in central Nicaragua. However, I didn't expect to have to compete for waves with the guides! I paid a good deal of money to travel there and I thought the idea of a guide was to get me waves, not for them...

Thank you for your feedback David. We do our best to get our clients into waves, which happens when we surf secluded breaks by boat, which we did while you were with us. The situation of surf out at the point is, its pretty tough to block waves for you when there are others in the line up. That is...

I came into this trip with Zero surf experience, and a substantial amount of anxiety due to the daily grind, and a longing for something different. I left feeling 100% rejuvenated, spontaneous, and with a huge itch for more adventure. (Also a surfer with a lot of potential to be great) The family atmosphere was immediately apparent from the sick...

Overall great trip. The surf was right in front of the area. Everyone did a great job accommodating me and making me feel welcomed. Surfing lessons were awesome and the food was absolutely amazing. It was exactly what I expected when I booked it.

We had a fantastic trip in Nicaragua because of STN! The rooms are clean, the food is A-MAZ-ING and plentiful (limited vegetarian variety, but that's the way it goes in Nica), the service is top notch and the surf is INCREDIBLE. SURF: consistent, clean and close (right out front). Plus, they have a boat and will take you other places...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are Central Nicaragua’s original and best Surf Camp and Surf Tour operator – our guides and staff are the most experienced and professional in all of Nicaragua, hands down. To get uncrowded waves in Nicaragua don’t be fooled by the rest when you want the best of your surf trip to Nicaragua. We keep our operation small – max. 11 surfers if multiple groups, or 17+ for cohesive groups – to ensure that central Nicaragua remains uncrowded unlike southern Nicaragua (Popoyo, Rivas, Tola, and San Juan Del Sur have a daily surfing population in the hundreds…our area at its busiest times might have a total of 50 surfers in the entire area including locals! If you want empty lineups the central coast is the answer). We are the closest operation to the airport in Managua (MGA), allowing you to maximize your Nicaragua surf time during your Nicaragua surf tour. We will pick you up and drop you off at the airport. With a 1.25 hour travel time from doorstep to airport, all on newly constructed cement roads, we are much more accessible than the 2.5 hour ride on bad roads to access southern Nicaragua. ... more   less
