Best Spots To Get Barreled in Nicaragua – Surf San Diego Nicaragua

Located an hour drive from Managua is San Diego, one of Nicaragua’s premier surf spots.  The left break has a rocky bottom which helps create steep, beautiful tube rides but can be painful if you fall off at the wrong place. 

San Diego Nicaragua Surfing

It can be a little unnerving to surf because you can see the rocky bottom just a few feet below your board as you are riding the wave.  Depending on the size, this wave is definitely for intermediate to expert level surfers.  When the swell is just right this break can create monster barrels which is what most surfers dream about.  This wave has been prominently featured in several surfing magazines.  Many want to go surf the waves they see in magazines, here is your chance.  For those in the group that may want an easier challenge, there is also a beach break nearby that may be more suited for beginners.

San Diego is located next to the Gran Pacifica beach resort a few miles north of Quisala.  You do not need to stay at the Gran Pacifica to surf San Diego.  You can park your vehicle in the community nearby and take a 5 minute walk down the beach where you find San Diego.
