My brother and my friend just returned from Nicaragua in March and stayed here. Casa La Barra was amazing the property was beautfiul with plenty of lounging spots with chairs or couches to watch the waves or enjoy a nice tona. The employees were top notch super friendly and always keeping the place and rooms spotless for the guests, the A/C also worked extremely well we would actually get too cold some nights haha. Food was beyond delicious and always fresh and healthy. The bar is always open with plenty of affordable non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks! The surf was unbelieveable and the guides will take you wherever you want to go whenever and know all the best conditions for each break. Also the board selection was great with so many different boards you can swap in or swap out any day. When you're not surfing you can also go fishing, volcano boarding, play pool or ping-pong or take dip in the refreshing pool! We had a blast and we all would definitely recommend this place to anyone. We stayed for 9 days and all the other guests we met were great and fun people to hang with too! Would definitely go back!

First - the food/lodging: I've traveled the world and spent a lot of time in owner/operator hotels, hostels, and resorts. La Barra does everything right. The food is top notch. The bar is always open, affordable, and super friendly. The lodging is clean, well kept, and maintained. The setting is out of a postcard. The staff is impeccable and a direct reflection of the owner/host, Alonso, who does a magnificent job of managing every aspect of his guest's trip - from pick-up at the airport to drop-off. Super impressed. Second - the surf: There are a bunch of breaks right in front of the resort, and the go-to Puerto Sandino is a short boat ride away. The surfing is almost exclusively lefts, and the waves are for the most part pretty advanced from a technical perspective. Barreling, spitting, long rides, and some serious ocean currents. It's not a beginners spot, but it's not deadly either. I'm not a great surfer so I couldn't take full advantage, but I'm not about to diminish the quality of the trip and our hosts just because I don't have the balls to charge in waves that intimidate me. The waves were amazing and I watched so many people getting barrelled it felt like I was living in a surf video. Third - Nicaragua: Nicaragua is an amazing, beautiful country that at present is recovering from some internal tension. We saw none of that. The Nicaraguans we met (we all speak fluent Spanish) were kind, polite, and very indifferent to us being there. In the lineup the Nicaraguans we met were awesome. No beef from the locals. We never felt threatened or afraid to be in Nica.

It was my second stay at La Barra, and I couldn't have been more impressed with the house renovations. The place looks great!! We had waves the whole time, and Alonso and Luis caught great photos of us too!! All exceptional meals, great company and the pool was perfect to cool off. Couldn't have asked for a better 5 days!

I can’t say enough about the staff the food and the surf!! Me and my buddy Frank Dog we were a little concerned with negative news fed to us befor our departure, upon arriving to the surf Camp the simple way to describe it is paradise!! Thank you David and Luis and the rest of the staff you are amazing!! we will be back in a few months for more perfect waves and zero crowds... get down there people.
