Rapture is a place, where fun and relaxation come together. The room was so comfortable and cozy with cute details. The food was pretty good and Vincent and his Team did everything for us feeling good and welcome. I wished I could take the three dogs with me home. But I think they have an amazing home with lovely people. Thank you for everything! Vicky

Rapture Nica was truly a dream come true. Paradise means everything is amazing all the time and that’s pretty much what it was like here. I’m the type of traveller who typically doesn’t stay in one place for long, as I’m always wanting to see the next new sight. But Rapture was so amazing - this was the first time I stayed more than a week at one place (kept extending again and again) and even returned back! I met sooooo many people who either extended their trips or returned cos they couldn’t get enough. Surf : The team checks and decides where the best spots are for the next day based on conditions. They also take into account the experience level of the surfers which is very helpful! It was great to experience the different beaches which were all beautiful, and they even have some secret spots! I enjoyed all my surf lessons and felt very safe and well taken care of. If you’re not taking a lesson that day, they have surf guides who help take care of the group. Learnt a lot of great tips on surfing from Hairol and Richard! Food: Jorge the Chef is amazing!!! I didn’t have one bad meal in the camp, every single meal was delicious!! For breakfast you get to order from a wide range of choices including eggs, porridge, banana pancakes (the best!!) etc. For dinner you can even get seconds or thirds! I was so happy and well fed all the time. Accom: I stayed in the private room and also the tent. I enjoyed both very much! Super clean and they even tidy the rooms everyday without fail. It was very comfortable and the showers were great with hot water and good water pressure. Coordination and communication: Johannes and all took great care of everyone. I got picked up safely from the airport and it’s easy to arrange transportation through the camp to get dropped off at the ferry area (for ometepe) or to Managua etc. They go out of their way to keep all their guests happy and comfortable, making everything as smooth sailing as possible. Vibes: Chill vibes all round over here, I was alone but it was pretty easy to make friends. Met lots of fun and cool people, and I think the environment and set up helps a lot with that. All in all, would highly recommend without a single doubt! It was truly paradise on earth :)

Spent a week here with my partner. Camp is great and they make sure you get lots of time i the water. Good spots that can cater to both experienced and novice surfers. Great way to visit different beaches with an organised driver every day. Girlfriend loved the lessons from the local surf guides too! If you are up for a chilled trip with lots of waves and you like meeting new people definitely recommend

There aren’t many places I’d describe as special, Rapture Nicaragua is one of them! Incredible surf, super friendly locals, beautiful country and made even better by a surf camp which is full of great staff who are committed to ensuring your stay is one that wants you to come back again. During my weeks stay at least four people returned because this place is that good! I cannot wait to come back myself, it’s a dream!
