I organized a trip to SJDS on a whim for four college friends who had never once surfed before but were interested in trying. As the trip grew nearer, I became a bit I worried because I had never been to SJDS myself and had heard from other surfers returning from the area that the beaches around SJDS were too heavy for beginners. Good thing we found Eduardo and Moke HuHu!

Eduardo and Jorge made sure we all had a fantastic experience. They brought us to a beginner's beach, Playa Remanso, that was perfect for this group, where some people could practice on whitewater and others on gentler (on some days) green waves. They accommodated all of our needs, picked us up from our hotel and drove us to the beach, gave very thorough instruction depending on everyone's aptitude and skill level, and were patient, calm, and helpful with tips on how to improve. Eduardo also helped us practice our Spanish and drove us to visit Volcan Mombacho, Laguna del Apoyo, and later on, Playa Coco, while giving us his thoughts about what the other breaks and beaches in the area were like. Eduardo and Jorge both were easy going, excited to surf, and had a great sense of humor. I highly recommend Eduardo and his team at Moke Huhu both for surf instruction and for guidance around activities and the area.

Eduardo made my first surfing experience in SJDS awesome. He warmly greeted our group, accommodated everyone's needs, got us the perfect equipment depending on our skill level, and was flexible about bringing us to and from the beach. I felt confident getting lessons from a professional boogie boarder who has over 20 years experience surfing. He was patient, knowledgable, and helpful to surfers of all different skill levels in our group. Moke Huhu is definitely a one-stop-shop when it comes to staying in SJDS.

A big High Five to Eduardo at Moke HuHu!!!!! This guy was awesome and all the staff were great. My wife and I spent 8 days in San Juan and surfed everyday. The only regret was not meeting Eduardo sooner. We went and checked out all the different shops over the first part of our stay, hired personal guides, went to a bunch of different beaches on our own but felt that something was missing. We really wanted to learn about the different areas and experience the world renowned breaks that we read about.
When we walked into Moke HuHu surf shop, Eduardo was stoked to meet us, his english was wicked and genuinely wanted to help us out. All the rental equipment was in great shape, they were organized and the shop had good reliable transportation for getting around. We ended up booking 3 different trips that made us want to come back. On our last day Eduardo Spent the day with us. He took us up north all the way to Popoyo reef break, we surfed for a couple of hrs, caught some beauties and had an amazing lunch. Then checked out a bunch of other breaks as we made our way back down the coast. He was up for anything and made us feel really welcome in his beautiful country!!
Thank's again for the Memories we look forward to seeing you sometime soon.
Cheers to you, Jeremy & Katrina

Moke Huhu was a great experience. I did a three day surf lesson as well as staying at their hostel. Eduardo was an excellent teacher. It was also a unique experience as we stayed at the beach for six hours surfing, eating, having a few beers and enjoying the scenery. He also took us to three different surf spots.

Great Value for money.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Moke Huhu Guesthouse in December. The owners, a Canadian\Nicaraguan couple are lovely. The rooms and garden area are clean and private, a refreshing splash pool and quiet upper sundeck add to the quaint atmosphere. Location is perfect, a few blocks from the beach, restaurants, market, and shopping. (Loved eating at Josseline's on the beach!) And if you need to arrange transportation, tours, surrouding beach visits, or surfing adventures, Moke Huhu does that too. Eduardo is a very friendly, fun, knowledgeable, punctual guide and surf instructor, who speaks english and caters to your individual needs. We felt safe and had the best experience with Eduardo while visiting San Juan del Sur's beaches and local attractions. We highly recommend the trips to Granada and Masaya.
