Nicaragua embraces travelers for its rugged and diverse landscape from volcanoes to lakes, rivers to oceans, wildlife, culture, and historic colonial cities, not to mention the virgin beaches of the Pacific coast to the pristine coves of the Caribbean.

Nicaragua is an easy place to find secluded, untouched pieces of paradise in Central America. Los Clavos Surf Camp in the Northern West of Nicaragua remains untouched by tourism. The yoga shala overlooks a deserted bay with an untouched 7-kilometer stretch of beach to enjoy. There several beaches for surfing nearby and is not far from the infamous Boom, should you want to spectate the advanced surf crowd. Nahualapa Bay is a pleasant 15-minute walk away from the camp and remains relatively quiet throughout the season.
