We (8 older surfers) discovered Rise Up while searching for a less crowded surf experience, having previously been to the more crowded breaks in Nicaragua. The reviews I read looked too good to be true but I can only say they were right on. Every single person connected to Rise Up was both professional and welcoming at the same time. By the time we left, we felt we had made a bunch of new friends. Nothing was too much trouble, Steve the chef made fresh, unique and excellent meals every day. Transport was seamless and always available, Oscar, Dana and Hugh were excellent surf guides and there was even daily Yoga with Kat. Phil, the owner has put together an amazing place and we will definitely be back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Rise Up Surf camp accommodations consist of 7 comfortable rooms, all with ensuite bathrooms beautifully decorated with local Nicaraguan art and come with air conditioning. We cater to a maximum of 18 guests at one time which ensures each guest truly gets specialized attention in and out of the water. We are located on one of Nicaragua's most beautiful beaches, only a stones throw away from fun surf. As we have our own boat and two 4x4 off road trucks we also have access to numerous surf breaks close by. The camp also consists of great indoor and outdoor lounge areas, fully stocked guest kitchen, ocean view yoga deck, hammocks and a wide selection of surf boards. Our all inclusive packages are designed to suit surfers of all levels and we combine surfing with yoga, massages and some of the greatest adventure activities like volcano boarding, horse back riding, fishing, estuary boat trips and many more. ... more less
