a relaxing vacation in
Popoyo – Nicaragua

The Popoyo area and playa guasacate

  • A slice of paradise

We are famous for getting some of the best surf in Central America, almost year round – but there are many more things to enjoy.

the beach & natural hot springs

  • Popoyo has more than 10 km of walkable beach

The beach is, where most things happen in Popoyo. Go for a walk, bathe in the sun, swim in the ocean, dive the outer reef, go horse riding, play some volleyball and end the day with an incredible sun set at one of the beach bars or restaurants. What’s not to love?

Popoyo hot springs

Feeling a bit chilly in the evening? The natural hot springs are just out of town in Las Salinas and a truly original experience. Sit down in one of the hot pools, look at the stars and take in the water’s volcanic heat. They say it’s really good for your skin too.

  • More things to do, off the beach

Yoga 

There is a number of Yoga classes available, but the Soul Rider Yoga studio is probably the most iconic one. With a large platform, right in the front of the ocean, multiple Yoga classes are taught every day by different instructors. 

Fishing Trip by boat

The fishing expedition is a 6 hours trip and gives you not only your catch of the day, but also a unique view on Nicaragua’s diverse coast line.
