Nicaragua Surf Resort & Yoga Retreat

From Beginner’s Bay to Popoyo Outer Reef,
World Famous Surf breaks for All Skill Levels

Best Surf Camp in Nicaragua

GOOGLE REVIEWS from Our Happy Guests
I was hesitant in writing a review about Magnific Rock, due to pure selfishness. We had such a special experience that we wanted to hide it, like buried treasure. We had no expectations going in, and had friends for life coming out. The surfing was as good as it gets. The staff, the community, even the dogs will remain forever in our hearts. Billy and Jared are rock stars - accomplished and professional, yet humble and always stoked - the true embodiment of surfing.

I had the most amazing stay and experience at mag rock. Our room was clean, cool, and comfy and right outside we had an amazing view of the beach and sunset. Billy was an unbelievable guide who arranged everything, including boat trips to incredible surf spots and amazing food experiences. He also told stories and educated me on the history of land which was an awesome part of my experience. I would definitely recommend that everyone who is visiting Nicaragua stay at mag rock!

Billy and the team at Magnific Rock were incredible. We booked the all inclusive surf package and it was everything we hoped for and more. The hotel has a great selection of boards to choose from including epoxy long and short boards as well as fiberglass performance boards depending on your skill level. The waves were consistently great and our surf guide Dylan checked the weather and waves with us every morning to make sure we surfed the best breaks! The rooms were great and had a view of the surf break right from our porch, the food was incredible and they had amazing vegetarian options. One of the days we took a boat trip to an awesome wave that is only accessible via boat, followed by a truly authentic Nicaraguan meal at one their local friends homes.If you are considering a surf trip to Nicaragua and want relax and let someone tell you when and where to surf to have a great experience, this is the place.

I highly recommend Magnific Rock Surf Resort and its All Inclusive Surf Package! I had never surfed before. With all the coaching from my surf instructor Dylan and the Mag Rock Surf Coordinator Billy, I gained the confidence to return home, buy a board, and keep improving my surfing. After only 4 sessions over 4 days (I opted for a single longer surf session each day rather than 2 surf sessions each day), I was able to pop-up, and I caught a few of the waves with only verbal coaching from Dylan. Billy’s video taping session was hugely useful! The video let us see what I need to work on next. My time at Mag Rock definitely got my psyched to buy my own surfboard and continue improving back at home. Dylan was a great coach both on land and in the water! Besides pop-ups, he taught me a huge amount about the water and handling a surfboard, including how to: safely enter the water and get out to the line-up; enter a line-up; read the water to see waves and sets forming; strap a board onto the roof of a car; and all sorts of other great info. Dylan’s guidance continued over lunch each day along with sharing life stories. Dylan and Billy were great to hang out with. Billy was always available to answer questions and work with me before I arrived, during my time at Mag Rock, and afterwards. The studio room I had was comfortable and worked perfectly. The food in the restaurant was fresh and delicious. And, I appreciated the airport pick-up. The Mag Rock Surf Resort All Inclusive Surf Package is great!

My week stay at Magnific Rock was fantastic. The food was absolutely amazing, massages were restorative and relaxing, and the walk from the rooms down to the beach or to the markets were super fun and easy. The staff was just so warm and friendly- they made you it feel just like a big family! I will 1000% be back and I can’t wait!

I just completed a 5-day surf camp at Magnific Rock. Billy, the surf coordinator, was responsive and very helpful throughout both the booking process and my stay. Before my trip, I had only taken a couple of surf lessons, so the hotel's location right next to Beginner's Bay was perfect for me as a beginner surfer. As a first-time solo traveler, I felt comfortable and welcomed. The room was clean and air-conditioned, and all the staff were very friendly. In addition to surfing, the hotel offered fun classes like aerial yoga. The view from the hotel, especially during sunset, was just amazing. I left the surf camp feeling much more confident in the water. The surf lessons were excellent because I had my own instructor, and the lessons were tailored to my own level and pace. I can't wait to go back!

Paradisíaco. Una muy buena experiencia en el restaurante.
I can't say enough about the staff and hospitality we experienced here. The four of us stayed for a few days, travelled around Nicaragua and then headed back because we decided this place was too good not to go back.Billy and Jered were absolutely amazing! They literally went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. I am not kidding when I say the boat trip was probably one of the best travelling experiences of my life. Our group had all different levels of surfing abilities and Jared was the perfect couch for the beginners to the more advanced, either telling you were to sit and how the wave breaks or will be right by your side (the man also has some crazy stories, you'll learn a thing or two about the area!)Then after the surf we jumped back in the boat and went fishing. You can tell Billy genuinely loves what he does and it just makes the experience so much better, he's also a plethora of knowledge so you really know you're in good hands. We caught some fish including some white tuna (which I hear is quite rare!) and then the chef prepared it that night, definitely a check off my bucket list!!The staff there are also just the most wholesome, some are still learning English so it's an excellent opportunity to brush up on your Spanish! They were very helpful and always smiling, excellent vibes.We were recommended by friends up here in Canada to head down there and now I'm recommending this place to everyone else!

Absolutely amazing! Check the waves from your balcony, surf your brains out with breaks all over, cool off in the AC, get in the pool or play pool, and enjoy a cold crisp Tona and top notch meal to round it off. The local staff, amazing. Billy, the surf coordinator, amazing. Jared, the surf guide, amazing. The food, amazing. The view and location, amazing. Mag Rock made everything about our trip straightforward, convenient, and an absolute blast. Not to mention boat trips, fishing, yoga, horses, and more. 100% would go again.

Our group of 4 stayed here with the surf package and it didn't disappoint! Billy and Jared's love for the area and surf spots was incredible and definitely rubbed off on us. We liked it so much that after visiting Ometepe and Granada we decided to head back to Mag Rock to close out our Nicaragua trip. We couldn't get enough of the views, sunsets and waves.Excellent value for money especially if you want a stress free vacation. The food at Magnific Rock was 10/10 and so were the staff. The views were incredible and you can watch all the happenings in beginners bay from there.The highlight of the trip for me was the boat trip. We headed out to Lance's Left and caught some waves in the morning. Jared was making sure we were all catching waves and Billy was down the line with a camera getting some great footage of us. Afterwards we headed out to the open ocean for some fishing. It's always a good sign when you're guide loves what they do and Billy clearly loves fishing. We wrestled a few tunas into the boat and brought them back for the chef's at Mag Rock to slice up for dinner. An absolutely perfect day.Overall I'd highly recommend Magnific Rock, our group had a mix of surfing abilities and the crew there made sure everyone got the most out of their experience.

Enjoyed an incredible week at Magnific Rock! Billy, Poloma and Dylan were amazing surf guides and coaches. They took us out to several different breaks and offered great coaching and support. Marco was always kind and helpful in the restaurant. The room we had was not great but if you get a newer room they are certainly much nicer and more comfortable. When our AC stopped working, there was someone onsite who fixed it right away. You can’t beat this location!

I spent a week at Mag Rock and it was an incredible week. Everything about this week was perfect. I did the week long surf program and it was exactly what I wanted. First the property is gorgeous. It’s about a 2 hours drive from the airport which is fun because you get to drive through Nicaragua and see the culture. When you get there it’s like you have arrived in paradise. It’s on top of a cliff that overlooks the ocean. It’s breathtaking! I stayed in a suite that was awesome. The balcony was the best part. I would sit out there in between surf sessions and enjoy the view and would enjoy sunrises and sunsets out there. The food was delicious. Smoothies were great before hitting the water.The best part was the surfing and people. I met some awesome people that I was able to surf with all week. But the best was my two surf guides Billy and Dylan. They were so patient and comprehensive on teaching us how to be good surfers. I’ve taken surf lessons all over before and people just want you to stand up. They taught us about surf etiquette and how to read waves and techniques. I had a million questions and they answered all of them. If you’re thinking of coming here DO IT! You won’t regret it. I know I’ll be back!

Since there is no category that seems fitting, we want to give a special shout out to our surf instructor: Jared, the man, they myth, the legend:🌊Jared knows his surf spots in and out. He knows every wave and rock and we were catching twice as many waves as anyone else. We almost felt sorry for them 😉 (No we didn't)🏄‍♀️Jared never ever runs out of energy: if you don't end your surf ses yourself, it will be the sunset or no one.🌊In between waves it never gets boring. Fortunately, Jared has lived through 12+ different lives or so and always has a fun story to tell.🏄‍♂️When you're w/ Jared, there's no chance of going incognito. Literally EVERYONE knows him and wants to call him their friend🌊Jared helped and pushed (yep, he never leaves w/o giving you a lil homework assignment) us to take our surfing skills to the next level. From day one, we went from riding white water waves to catching and surfing green waves only. Not to mention our improvement on timing, pop-ups, stance or reading the ocean itself. Surfing never felt so easy breezy :)🏄‍♂️Watching Jared teach, you know what”finding your purpose“ really is about. Every wave we caught, his smile got bigger and wider as if it was him catching the waves himself. That's what real support feels like🌊The surf package comes w/ an epic boat day experience, video analysis and so much more you'll be dreaming of for a long time🏄‍♀️Also the waves in Popoyo are incredible and one of the most consistent we've ever surfed (next to the ones in Bali, Muizenberg - Cape Town, Portugal..)We usually don't write reviews, but since Jared is THE best teacher we ever had, we would have felt like fools if we didn't.Thanks a million for all the fun and good times.We hope to be back soon.🤙🏻

I had an amazing time at Magnific Rock. Billy, the surf instructor was super cool and knowledgeable when it came to riding waves. The rest of the staff and experiences were above and beyond. The sunsets and epic coast lines make it a hard place to leave. I can’t wait to get back out there.

An absolutely must go location. I honestly can’t fault this place and the people that work and run it!Billy and Brian, the two surf guides were unreal and helped me develop my skills so easily.It’s hard not to write a cheesy and corny review where I say everything was great but it’s true. This surf camp and it’s location is spot on.By far my favourite place in all of Nicaragua.

I had the most amazing time during my stay at magnific rock. Everyone was so incredibly welcoming and attentive. Massimo greeted us and made sure that we had everything we needed at all time. Food was amazing and we were graciously attended by all staff, they were accommodating for my vegetarian diet. I thoroughly enjoyed the yoga classes daily and took an amazing Aerial class with Ella. My friend and I also took surf lessons with Billy who was an excellent teacher and had us catching many waves in the beautiful beach in Popoyo. The view was perfect, everyone at the resort was incredible and I can not wait to come back!

What a magnificent experience! I will never forget our beautiful time here at Magnific Rock. My girlfriend and I booked 4 nights and five days under the yoga package and added surf sessions on top. Best decision ever. We ate like princesses and had a spectacular view of Popoyo from our “Apartamento” accommodation. The food and drinks were incredible. Massimo, the manager, emphasized a family-style experience and we felt so at home even though we were traveling from California. I highly recommend Magnific Rock to first-timers to Nicaragua as we had an experience to be remembered for a lifetime. Ask for Billy for surf lessons and Ella for yoga! They made our trip so much fun. I definitely will be coming back.

I had a magnificent stay at Mag Rock. Dave and Jackson are amazing and caring owners, and you’ll want for nothing while you’re there! The staff are sweet and helpful, though not all speak english, which is a perfect opportunity for me and my English speaking friends to practice our Spanish. The view is breath taking, I stayed for 9 days and it does not get old. The surfing is amazing, quality waves for all types of skill levels, with Nicaragua’s signature offshore winds. Billy who runs the surf camp is an awesome human and guide. I loved my stay at Mag Rock and I cannot wait to come again!

This place is magical!! The pictures online don’t do it justice. The views from Magnific Rock are mesmerizing. The location cannot be beat — you are steps away from one of the main breaks below and can watch people surf from your balcony. And most importantly, the people that work there are the greatest. I did the all inclusive surf package and had 2 amazing surf guides, Billy and Brian. It was the best surf trip of my life. They not only provided great 1:1 coaching that allowed me to significantly progress my surfing skills, but were also awesome guys to hang out with in and out of the water. On the final day, we took a boat trip to Lancer’s Left where I ended the trip with the wave of my life. Thanks for everything guys! I’ll be back soon!

This is a must-go destination for surfers and those that enjoy the vibe.Their location, the surf, the facilities and staff are excellent and to be recognized."Mag Rock" overlooks a nunber of great breaks enabling you to choose which to take advantage of the tide and swell for some serious surfing.We really enjoyed the staff, both housekeeping and the kitchen, who ensured we had the best experience.In summary, Magnific Rock is a diamond in the rough: enjoy it while you can.

This was our second time staying at Mag Rock and we have nothing but amazing feedback to give to anyone considering visiting for any amount of time. The staff are incredibly kind and helpful. The food is delicious and the menu is diverse. The view and location is one of the most beautiful you can find anywhere in the world. If you’re even remotely a surfer it’s tough to find a more ideal spot to score epic waves all day every day. My only regret was not staying longer.

One of the most amazing experiences of my life- and I’m a traveler who has been and lived all over the world!! The waves are incredible and are worth traveling for, but it’s really the people who set this experience apart. Billy and Brian (surf instructors), Hank (photographer), and Jackson (owner) are amazing, talented, and kind individuals who will give you their all. They put their hearts into your Nicaraguan experience, be it through surf, yoga, food or chill vibes. I wanted to leave a bad review so that I wouldn’t have to share a wave with you when I return, but I’d get bad karma for doing that— so, see you out there!! 🙂

I loved watching sunset here! You have perfect views of the rock, the beach, and all the surfers at beginners bay. The food was great and priced fairly! I had a shrimp pasta dish that was absolutely amazing! I would recommend arriving an hour before sunset so that you can have your choice of the perfect seat. When I arrived, it was virtually empty, but about 20 mins before the sun set, groups of people started to arrive. Would highly recommend visiting if you're in the area!

This place is full of problems.- the place is too close to the water. The waves will wake you up at night.- the offshore wind is too strong (February).- some rides are so long that it takes forever to paddle back to the lineup.- everything is so great that it ruins other surf experiences for you.For those that might not have caught on by now: the items listed above are clearly not real problems. This place is a gem. It might not be the cheapest option in the area, but you get what you pay for. The views are unmatched, the staff are friendly and helpful, Billy (in charge of the surf program) has the absolute best energy and puts his heart into what he does. And the hotel has a generator, which means that you will still have AC/wifi/etc, should there be power outages.I would highly recommend.Deacachimba!

1000000% am coming back again. I loved my surf yoga 10 day experience at Mag Rock! I stayed in a studio and the room, amenities, and ocean beach views were amazing. Super comfy bed as well with working air conditioning. I didn't end up using the air conditioning as much since it wasn't too hot while I was there.They have the best and most convenient location. 1 min walk to Mag rock beginners break, 1 min walk to some other beach breaks to left of Mag rock, then only a 10-15 min walk to Popoyo, 20-25 min walk to Playa Santana.The staff were so friendly and helpful. They really go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Just ask and they'll try and find something for you! Darling was so responsive while I was planning my trip back in the states. She really made me feel comfortable planning a solo trip to Nicaragua.When I was there, they found a truck to drive me to Playa Santana when the roads were a little harder to walk on. Darling set up a great day trip to Granada and even came with me to explore! And Angie took me exploring the local food and night scene - so fun.The yoga classes were so good, especially before and after surf sessions. They have all types of yoga and at different times. I also learned some aerial yoga from Angie who was fantastic!I surfed my best with my coach Elyin! We surfed 2x a day and spent even more hours reviewing my surf videos and discussion surf theories over lunch. He knew when and where to go to certain breaks. I came home knowing exactly what else I need to do to improve + increased confidence!See everyone soon!!!

I was lucky to enjoy the studio everyday, in peaceful solitude and Magnific Rock are kind enough to give access to the yoga mats.

El lugar me pareció increíble, la vista está increíble, la comida tiene precio/calidad, acceder al lugar es complicado si no tienes vehículo, pero pues pagar por un taxi en Rivas o esperar un bus que te deja en la entrada, sin embargo tendrás que caminar hacia el Resort, las habitaciones cuenta con AC y son super cómodas, los precios súper accesibles, cuentan con una vista al mar que quedas fascinado, la playa es increíble y limpia, puedes hacer surf. Volvería sin duda alguna.

I booked the all inclusive surf package here and it was such a great decision! I feel like I really got my moneys worth with this package. The room was lovely, AC, hot water and an incredible view of the ocean and sunset. I ate every meal at the hotel over my 6 days and everything I ate was fantastic, I was actually pleasantly surprised how delicious the food was! The daily surf sessions were great, I had the same instructor everyday which i liked, he was a great teacher and helped me a lot. The package also includes a boat trip to another surf spot only accessible by boat, this was tons of fun and such a cool experience!I looked at several options in the area before booking the surf package here, and after being in Popoyo and seeing the options in person, I really can't say enough how totally happy I am I booked with Magnific. All the staff are also so wonderful and friendly, especially Darling and Angie who are just the sweetest!

Definitely worth a visit for surfers and yogis. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The restaurant has fresh, quality food and the best views imaginable. I would stay again in a heartbeat!
