NicaWaves aims to provide a genuine Nicaraguan surf experience in Popoyo Nicaragua for traveling surfers. Popoyo is a very short walk and other very consistent world-class surf breaks are close by. We can provide you with a cozy room with a comfortable bed and delicious food. Likewise, we can provide all the amenities for an epic adventurous surf trip!
For 2013, we have the following team – Maria is our receptionist on hand from 6am to 2pm. Josue (“el gordo”) is our bartender on duty from 2pm til closing. Our chef Julio is on hand for breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours. Along with our other cooks, he whips up delicious creations all day long, but don’t miss the nightly specials that are true masterpieces with fresh, local ingredients. Julio is one of Popoyo’s original locals and is quick with a joke so be prepared for some good-natured ribbing in spanish. Our friendly night watchmen, George, Balvino and Eddie arrive each afternoon and leave in the morning after watering our lawns and trimming the plants and trees to perfection. Juana, our maid, is on hand from 6am to 2pm to clean your room or wash your clothes. Boogie is our charismatic surf guide. His job is to keep you stoked and entertained and getting you into the type of waves you are looking for! Mike lives on the grounds as well. He can usually be found surfing Popoyo or Santana or shooting photos of our guests. So you will always find a friendly crew on the property.
Our guests also enjoy spending time with our several happy mascots. Little Buddy is our friendly beach dog, and Tigre and Yellow are our playful kittens. Roxi is our other dog who loves to loaf around the property. Little Buddy loves accompanying our guests to the beach and hanging out by your sandals while you surf.
If you’re thinking about coming to Popoyo, drop us a line! We’d be happy to help you find what you’re looking for. We hope to see you soon in Popoyo!
