Ready to trade
stress for waves?

Let the countdown to your perfect wave begin.

    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!

    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!

    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!! 🙂

    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!
