Two Brothers Surf Resort, Popoyo, Nicaragua
Popoyo is a small beach town that sits on a narrow peninsula between Lago Nicaragua and the Pacific Ocean. Thanks to the lake and the temperature gradients it creates, winds blow off-shore year-round at Popoya. The weather is tropical, making for the perfect destination for warm-water surf.
Where You'll Stay: Named for owner Robert Gregory’s two sons, the Two Brothers Surf Resort is perched on a pinnacle mountaintop overlooking the surrounding coastline. Ten minutes of walking puts you on the beach from Two Brothers, but the higher elevation means cooler air, commanding views, and fewer mosquitos. There are multiple breaks in the area that can accommodate just about any skill level, and Two Brothers guides know the region inside and out. Two Brothers also offers boards for rent and an on-site chef will keep your belly full.
Rates and Getting There: Two Brothers can provide transportation from Managua airport, which is about two hours by car. There are no roadsigns in Nicaragua, so while you can drive yourself, you might find more adventure than you planned. Rates start at $100 per night for a villa at Two Brothers. All-inclusive trips that include meals, boat trips, and airport transfers start at $1,099 for four nights. [twobrotherssurf.com]Back to top
