Dale Dagger Surf Lodge
Reviewed 20 April 2011

Whether you are looking for a peaceful getaway off the beaten path, between the rolling hils jungle and georgeous beach or you are an avid surfer, the Surf Lodge is the one and only place to stay at.

The Surf Lodge, as the name suggests, is purposely in existence to cater to surfers of all levels. The surf guides, with the expert opinion of long time local boat captain Walter, will make sure they find waves that suit your style and abilities. Even if the swell, wind and weather patterns may not look optimal, Walter knows where to find waves. In and of itself, just to have Walter shuttle you along the coast to waves is worth the cost of admission - there is no boat captain in the region that does it better.

Owners Kassidy and Ben who recently took over ownership and operation of the lodge from Dale Dagger are doing an exceptional job of making sure their guests are taken care of in every sense of the word. If there is anything you want or need and it can reasonably be done, they will go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. Moreover, a testament to their personalities, Kassidy and Ben have build a great team of young, enthusiastic hosts and house staff to keep you very well fed and the lodge spotless.

Without a shadow of a doubt, a must stop spot on your trip to the Nicaraguan Pacific Coast.
