QUESTIONS


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 :


iF i BRING A FRIEND DO WE RECEIVE A DISCOUNT?

HOW DO I GET HERE ?

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.

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
