Magnific Rock Popoyo
Welcome to Magnific Rock!
On the Pacific coast of Nicaragua, about an hour's drive west of Rivas is the small indigenous community of Las Salinas. Las Salinas is home to Popoyo, arguably one of the best surf breaks in Nicaragua.
Located on a small headland in Las Salinas, Magnific Rock overlooks both Popoyo and Playa Santana. This convenient position of Magnific Rock means it's only a short walk to two of Nicaragua's premier surf breaks.
Without a doubt the best possible place to stay if you are planning a surf trip to Central America.
Perched on rocky outcrop with a perfect lefthander literally within stones throw and views south along the beach breaks towards Rancho Santana and North to the outer reef and the famed Popoyo reef and beach breaks.
With a choice of 7 different waves at out doorstep from beginer to expert no other accommodation offers an equally central, exciting and fulfilling location.
Nicaragua has a tropical climate with two seasons. A wet season from May to January and a dry season from January to mid May, both seasons have very constant surf. The dry season is know for its offshore winds where as the wet season continually cops the massive swell from the pacific. Both seasons have their advantages with the exception of October when everything shuts down because of the weather.
Magnific rock also has a range of surfboards for rent so if you dont feel like paying the $200 to fly your surfboard down, we've got you covered.
