Camping Madera
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Come for a day and stay a week like I did. There are several shiny pretty places to stay. So why stay here? Camping Madera/Cafe Revolucion is Nicaragua. If you are wanting to step beyond being a tourist and truly enjoy this country in the raw. Then this is the place for you.
First off they are a COOP, in other words, a community. It's also home to several youth betterment programs. Yes, the artwork is for sale. Local surf instructors are always on hand or just rent a board and prepare to be picking up a new hobby. Who needs a therapist with waves like these.
The cafe itself acts as a common place, hosting mingling of all sorts. Group meals and happy hour cocktails just seem to magically happen.
Post up for a sunset dinner and be sure to order the locally caught whole fish and a tona or two. Just be warned you too just might be changing your ticket.

Camping while listening to the waves of the Pacific!!
Wood-oven pizzas are sincerely the best in Central America!!
The coffee is definitely meeting the highest standards!!
The sunsets are simply perfect!!
The staff is sincere and welcoming and part of a COOP!!
You will see monkeys, great waves and good surfing!!

Congratulations to camping madera/cafe revolucion and the staff...

M&M

ps;

After 10km on a dirt road, you will arrive to this camping with basic services. Small tents are ideal, even hamacs, Westfalia or Suzucamp are also welcome at Camping Madera/Cafe Revolucion parking lot... the site is priceless!!
