My experience at Monty's was fantastic. This rustic beach lodge was the perfect setting for me and my friends to truly experience rural Nicaragua and the culture of the fishing village while feeling safe and secure. The hospitality and friendliness of people there was second to none. I cannot say enough positive things about Monty's and would stay there again... More

Great surfing location, not many other activities to do. Much more of a isolated location where you can mix with locals and be immersed in the Nica culture. Not for the faint hearted. Great bar and hospitality! Great place for a group, family, or solo, if solo pre arrange your transport with Monty's.

I went to Nicaragua with a volunteer group called GIVE this past May 2015, and I cannot begin to explain how at home and safe I felt at Monty's Beach Lodge. The staff was so friendly and accommodating that I never hesitated to approach Gerry or any one else on the staff. At the end of our trip, the staff... More

I was part of a volunteer group from the United States and stayed at Monty's for a week. I truly cannot say enough good things about the lodge -- the service was great, the staff was helpful and caring, and the overall experience was incredible. I felt like I was staying at the home of a friend rather than a... More

I stayed at Monty's for a week on a GIVE volunteer trip this past May, and I genuinely wish I could have stayed longer! The service is top-notch, the food they serve is delicious, and Jerry does an amazing job. Also, nothing beats the sunsets on Jiquilillo Beach! Monty's made my visit to Nicaragua unforgettable and I felt very safe... More

All of the employees at Monty's are very friendly and welcoming. I felt very safe in this hostel. There are armed guards and dogs that keep the location very secure through the night. There are also a lot of opportunities when you stay at Monty's. For example, I was able to get surf lessons and interact authentically with the locals.... More

Monty's Beach Lodge is amazing! It was such a beautiful place that filled me with memories I will never forget. The service was fantastic and the people there do not disappoint.

I travelled to Nicaragua with a GIVE group earlier this month. The staff at Monty's were some of the best, most genuine people I have ever met while traveling in a foreign country. They did their best to make sure you felt at home while staying at the surf camp. The cleanliness of the place was remarkable. If traveling to... More

I have been to Monty's Beach Lodge two times now (May of 2013 and 2015) and loved both of my stays so much! The food is delicious and the staff is amazing. Gerry the owner treats everyone like his family and seeks to make your stay as wonderful as possible. In the past two years Monty's has expanded so much... More
