Verdad Nicaragua

beginner - intermediate 

Here at Verdad Nicaragua surfers of every level enjoy boundless waves almost all year-round thanks to a consistent, off-shore wind. You are pretty much guaranteed an excellent surf break here! Plus, you’ll never find a crowded line-up at Verdad Nicaragua, because we are truly off the beaten track. We sit nestled on the hillside above Playa Escameca Grande, a serene stretch of beach with a sandy bottom swell.  


Surf lessons at Verdad Nicaragua are run by our bi-lingual head surf coaches Wesley Bermudez and Jose Espinoza Venegas and the team at La Escuelita Surf School. Jose is the long-board champion of the Central American Olympics, a National Champion in Nicaragua, and a most awesome teacher. Wes is also a surf competitor, with eight years of experience inspiring students of every level.


You can count on Jose and Wes to motivate absolute beginners to catch their first wave, but they are also pros at helping more advanced students hone their surfing skills. Their love of the sport and their country is simply contagious.  These guys are passionate about what they do! Book a surf package, and experience our coaches’ professional knowledge and positive energy for yourself.

Professional & Personal Assessment

Verdad’s instructors are true professionals, and their proven teaching method will get you to the next level during your stay. What makes us stand out, is that we are not a hotel that happens to offer surf lessons, we are a surf camp that works with each student individually toward our camp’s mission of getting you to surf confidently and independently.


On your first morning at Verdad Nicaragua your coach will assess your skill level and goals, then we start the day on land reviewing theory and technique. After breakfast, you’ll head to the beach. We’ll go either to Playa Escameca Grande right here at Verdad, or to whichever local beach break that offers the best surf conditions that day. 


Though our break is exceptional for surfers of all levels, more advanced surfers will be stoked to check out the barrels at Playa el Yankee, one cove over. Playa el Remanso and Playa Hermosa are other favorites, so we don’t rule out throwing the boards in the truck to head to one of these breaks or elsewhere if the waves there are calling.   


Once we arrive at our destination, our team will work with you both on and off the water. Your coach will pay close attention to your individual level of expertise and comfort, so everyone has a blast on the waves, and no one goes unchallenged. 

All the while, we will be shooting video and taking photos of you surfing, so when we get back to the hotel, our coaches can give you personalized feedback. It’s this kind of professional, individualized coaching that ensures you get the most out of your surf holiday at the treasure that is Verdad Nicaragua.

“I spent a week at Verdad with a surf package and am so glad I chose Verdad over other surf schools and hotels. I started the week as an advanced beginner surfer, and by the end of the week, was riding bigger waves than ever before.
