The house is 400 square feet with equal amount of covered outdoor patio space. It has has two bedrooms (double bed and two singles), kitchen, shower, bar, and sitting area. Propane stove, solar oven, or traditional wood cook stove for cooking. One side of the patio is set up for dining, the other site where the hammocks are strung. The large roof overhang keeps the patio in the shade and the house cool. It was built in 2011, is well constructed with steel roof beams and concrete filled cinder block reinforced with rebar. The house is cleaned twice a week. Wild Nica's location is set back in a tranquil valley about two miles or one and a half kilometers from the ocean. After a day at the beach, it’s nice to be away from the surf and find yourself in the quiet solitude of a valley. Half of the property is forested in tall trees providing amble shade, while the front section is open to the passing sun. The vegetable garden is stocked in a variety of vegetables depending on time of year and crop rotation.

Your onsite host is available to drive you and guests to the nearby surf beaches. Four nearby beaches are within a 15 minute reach. Their location backs onto a 450 acre private nature reserve with a trail system that loops across the jungle forest. In this area, you’ll see three species of monkey, and numerous bird species, including the secretive toucan. There is a horse-back riding outfitter down the road offering trips to the beaches. Wild Nica's vehicle is an older 4x4 Hilux (savings up for a newer model) which can get across the toughest terrain including a wonderful trip across a nearby mountain ridge. Bikes are brought to the beaches for cruising along the vast stretches of sand. Sunset watching is a must as Nicaragua has some of the most dramatic sunsets in the world.

Playa Yankee

Superb beach break that acts like a left point on the Southside. Wash sweeps over and makes for a consistent take off. Best with south and south west swell on an incoming tide. Can handle plenty of size despite what the localsmay say.

Primary Colors

Very fickle point break on the north end of Playa Yankee. Best during low tide, although it will work all day with the right swell direction and size. Needs a good amount of juice, but can be one of the most amazing waves on the coast when firing.

Playa Hermosa

Two miles of a-framed beachbreak. Best at two to five feet on a medium swell. Fairly consistent spot working with most swell directions.

Playa La Flor

This is one of the largest tortoise egg laying habitats found on the Pacific Coast. Hundreds of females make their way onto the beaches to deposit hundreds of eggs on its sandy beaches. Park rangers can assist visitors in the release of baby turtles at twilight.

Testimonials

  • Review by a traveler

    "My girlfriend and I stayed here last January and glad we chose to hang out here versus being in San Juan del Sur. It felt pretty remote the first few days, but then once settled in we stared to thrive on the tranquility. The host was great in showing us the beaches. How many places to get a host whose only job is to make sure you have a great time - so that was sweet. Their truck was a little on the beat up side, but ran well enough. We hired a local senora four times to cook us dinners, since you're on your own when it comes to meal prep."
