Playa Maderas, San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

Abide Playa Maderas is currently under construction. We are opening the doors to surfers and digital nomads in June 2020. Please contact us if you’re interested in affordable monthly rentals.

Playa Maderas is a surf and yoga haven on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua just north of San Juan del Sur. This is a destination for true adventurers who don’t mind driving on unsealed roads and waking up to the sound of howler monkeys. But the upsides are big. Spectacular in its raw natural beauty, the friendliness of its people and the range of surf breaks this is a unique and powerful destination.
