GreenLeaders Platinum level
Miramar Surf Camp consists of 3 individuals lodging areas, spread over a half acre beachfront property. We have 13 fully equipped A/C rooms nestled throughout the gardens which overlook the beautiful point break out front. There is lots of parking, a surf front pool, oceanfront restaurant area, yoga/training gym, game area, surf TV room, hammock hangout area and surf front living room! We are strategically positioned right in front of one of the best reef breaks of Nicaragua, in a place blessed by consistent waves and offshore winds all day. There are FIVE breaks within a 200 metre walk, to give you lots of opportunity to score uncrowded waves. It's not necessary have a car to surf in our area, in addition to the many waves within walking distance, we also have our own boat that provides daily shuttles to surf Puerto Sandino, El Transito, Salinas or other secret spots. This property is located in Punta Miramar. This beautiful left hander breaks over a rock reef bottom but still has a deep takeoff. The wave can be heavy with some nice barrel sections that flow into a softer section before it hits the inside and throws again. Provides long rides on the better days. Our hotel is located near Pipes. A-Frame Beach Break with a flat reef on the lefts. This wave has long lefts and rights and will barrel on most swells and works well on all tides.This property is also located near Puerto Sandino. This is the most popular spot in the area. An offshore break with boat access only. A very long left over a sand bar with rocks on the inside. This wave can be very fast and hollow at times and provide long rides. Also know as "freight trains" or "La Barra" works on low tide and the boats leave in front of Miramar Surf Camp. In addition to solid surf, the property has an oceanfront restaurant and small bar for guests to enjoy. Sitting atop the point, you can enjoy fresh burgers, fish, salads and the plate of the day whilst watching your friends get barrelled out front. We have a selection of local beers, fresh juices and sodas to sip on to keep yourself feeling hydrated in the blistering heat. Or take a couple to our oceanfront pool while you keep cool. For all the non-surfers, we have an on-site training area where you can enjoy yoga, jiujitsu or your own routine. We can arrange a variety of interesting activities such as horseback riding, paddle boarding, volcano treks or a guided visit to nearby colonial city Leon to enriched your vacation. We hope to see you soon!

It was our first time at Miramar and we can't wait to go back. The location is perfect, right in front of a perfect wave and also where you get the boat to get to other perfect waves as well (Puerto Sandino, Salinas, etc). We enjoyed the whole service so much and we also had all meals included (breakfast, lunch and dinner). It was great food. The whole staff are very friendly and they will help you with everything you need. Don't forget to order an Ice Cream Sandwich, you won't regret it. I'm already missing that. Keep up the good work!!

When I checked in the first night, there was no staff. Just a security guard who didn't know what room I was in so we went around banging on doors until we found the right one. I walked into a small room full of mosquitoes where the shower had no hot water and the bathroom had no soap. I ended up having to walk down the road the next day to buy my own soap. The grounds are nice but travelers should be aware of what they're in for with the rooms. The surf was pretty good. I didn't love that the waves in the area are all lefts but the camp is well located in front of a surf break. Generally the camp will nickel and dime you on everything, I paid for an all inclusive stay that is supposed to include 1 boat ride (or lesson if you're a beginner) each day. They never gave a single boat ride but at the end of the trip, suddenly presented me with an "extras" bill for short tuk tuk rides we'd taken to surf a very close beach. Had I known these weren't included, I would've just walked to that beach. Travelers should know that board rental is NOT included in the all-inclusive package. Overall it was more expensive than other surf trips I've taken to Mexico and Costa Rica. To summarize: + do NOT expect a room with hot water or soap + DO bring a lot of bug spray + DON'T pay for the all-inclusive if you know how to surf. For an extra $80 / night, they'll give you 2 meals and a "boat ride" to surf spots. But the boat ride might not actually happen, and you're basically paying $80 for 2 meals (the camp charges $10 per meal if you order them) + BE wary of getting charged for stuff. Whenever you're offered anything, make sure to ask whether they'll charge you at the end of the trip for it.

Hey Hank! Thank you for coming with the group to stay with us! We enjoyed hosting you all! I appreciate all the feedback. These are great points for us to improve. Biggest apologies on our side about the down sides! As a group of 34 you guys had a special custom package! Our all inclusive package does not include board rental which was the majority of your bill. Desserts are also extra as the package just includes the 3 meals. You guys came at one of the biggest swells of the year but we are happy for some of the group members that extended to stay longer to be able to surf some great waves at Sandino! When our guests arrive after 11pm we do leave the key with the security guard to take you to the room but since there were a couple of you that arrived we should of had that more organized. We don't have staff for midnight check in as we are just family run business! I know you were confused since the beginning when you reserved a Private Non Ocean View room with breakfast only and then you wanted to upgrade to the Private Ocean View Room Surfer Package. Since of the big swell boats were prohibited to go out by the marines law. Hot water we dont have and have never had as its normally 90 here. Again we are happy for all of you that came! Some is was their second time and others are already coming back! Cheers Familia Miramar

Miramar Surf Camp is a great place to surf and disconnect from the world. Everything is set up for an easy surf vacation. The staff and people that run the place are awesome and took great care of us. They really live the lifestyle and shared it with us. We just got home and already miss the place. We really enjoyed the other guests as well everybody was really nice and down to earth. I brought my girlfriend on the trip and there was plenty of soft tops/long boards/ fun shaped boards for her to use also. The food and atmosphere are on point! The upper deck with the hammocks & yoga mats is also one of my favorite things about this place. Great spot to drink coffee, meditate, and check the surf. If you’re thinking about booking this trip do it. We had a full week of good food, good waves, naps, fun, good company, and rest.

This was my 6th trip to Miramar Surf Camp in 7 years. I'm always shocked how it seems to get better each time - this year, the food was unreal....fresh fish and seafood. Friday night "Pizza Night" is the best. They setup the meals so that it is a social time to meet all the other guests and create friends. This camps owners are hands on and are always around the camp making sure that we are having the best trip. The staff is super friendly and attentive to your dietary and drinking needs. The surf is amazing and they set the boat times based on the swell and the tides - we left anywhere from 5:30 AM the first day to 9:00 AM on the last day based on the perfect surf times. They are now offering more beginner lessons at a protected wave 10 minutes away. They know it - I will be back soon. They also made sure we knew the Covid restrictions for travelling to Nicaragua and made sure we got the right tests and got the information to the Govt. They also had tests there for our return to the US. All the staff were wearing masks at all times.
