ASK QUESTIONS | REACH OUT | COMMUNICATE


As we always try to improve and understand the needs of our client, we gathered some Frequently Ask Questions over the years, here's few of them :


CAN I ARRIVE ANOTHER DAY THAN SATURDAY?

Our Surf package runs from Saturday to Saturday to ensure our students are all at the same level, can improve together by a changing focus of the class everyday and of course to build up a family during this week and share an unforgettable experience with each other.

Anyways we’d love to have you here and we’ll make sure that you can join the group arriving on another day as well. Please contact us  and tell us your specific arrival date.


iF i BRING A FRIEND DO WE RECEIVE A DISCOUNT?

We offer a $50 discount per person to groups of friends


HOW DO I GET HERE ? 

As we offer the shuttle service from Managua airport and the border of Costa Rica, we suggest to visit our Getting Here page for information about travelling to Nicaragua and coming to San Juan del Sur the easiest.


Visas?

For entering and leaving Nicaragua, foreigners require a valid passport with or without a visa depending on your nationality. Passports must have a validity of at least six months beyond your entry date to the country. For nationals of most countries, there’s  no specific visa needed for a stay up to 90 days. You only have to purchase a Tourist Card ($10)  on your arrival.


MONEY ADVICE ?

We’ll advise you to bring a little amount of cash (easiest $US) on your arrival, in small bills as it is hard for market to have change. Almost every location will accept $US, but you will get your change in the local currency Cordoba. You can consider to  exchange (part of) your money in Cordoba at the airport/border which makes payment even easier because all the prices here are in local currency.

ATMs are super accessible and you can get cash out 24/7. Many bigger businesses in town accept Visa and Mastercard, American Express is limited. Especially bars and smaller stores only accept cash. So it’s advisable to also carry a certain amount of cash.


wHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

We recommend you to bring a big smile, great attitude and a lot of motivation to surf.

You will also need:

  • sunscreen (as it is super expensive here in Nicaragua)
  • mosquito spray
  • rashguard,  long sleeve shirt or wetsuit if you got one
  • hat
  • sunglasses
  • towel
  • adapter type A or B to charge your phone
  • two types of shoes: sandals and sneaker
