Playa Maderes is the closest surf spot to San Juan Del Sur. Here you can find a hostel and three restaurants along with a constant stream of backpackers. The fresh fruit juice daiquiris flow freely, the hammocks are unbelievably relaxing, and the people are super chill. Definitely a place to check out if you ever find yourself in Southern Nicaragua.
Stephanie took to the waves quickly but unfortunately I only caught the beginning in photos. She was standing up in no time, even in less than desirable conditions. We’re so glad you came to visit Stephanie!!
