We could not have had a better time in El Transito! The beach was ideal and GreenSurf took us to the perfect spot to learn to surf. All 3 in my group were able to stand up on waves our first time out! We were picked up at the airport by a great driver and taken directly to our beachfront room. The food was excellent, especially the fresh seafood. Dave at Greensurf arranged for us to go fishing with some local fishermen and that was a highlight of our trip. Staff was super friendly and treated us like old friends. We could not have felt more welcomed into this wonderful community. Bring a good book to read while hanging out in one of the shaded beachfront hammocks and also lots of sunblock, the sun is intense here and there is no sunblock for sale in town (a sign of how untouched this place is by tourism).
Important: Safety was our biggest concern when traveling to Nicaragua. We walked around town barefoot and at night no problem. Left our things on the beach while surfing for hours. Had absolutely no concerns by the end of our trip. This is a small town and I felt very very safe here. The staff and owner of Greensurf were the best and clearly have a great relationship with the locals. I think this was most important in helping us to be welcomed into the community. I am already planning my return trip to Greensurf and would highly recommend it to all my friends.
