Activities: Surf


Nicaragua is renowned for its phenomenal surf, consistent waves, and year round access. Thanks to unique conditions created by offshore winds from Lake Nicaragua, the largest lake in Central America, you can count on world-class surf 300 days out of the year. Hulakai is located just five minutes uphill from Playa Maderas, which has hosted several international surfing competitions. Maderas is something special, offering a perfect playground to the professional surfer and novice alike. If you are a beginner, take a surf lesson with experienced bilingual teachers who know the waves like the back of their hand. For the more experienced surfer, we can arrange boat drops to any number of exceptional beach breaks nearby. Surf lessons can be booked upon arrival.


At Hulakai, we offer yoga classes for you to relax, unwind, and look within. Our classes welcome first timers and advanced yogis alike, overseen by expert teachers with experience in tailoring the practice to your exact needs. If you are here for an extended stay, you are welcome to also check out classes at the Zen yoga studio in San Juan del Sur, and seasonal classes and retreats offered in the area throughout the yea.
