If you want to get barreled, Playa Colorado is the place to visit in Nicaragua. The secret is out and you won’t be surfing this spot alone. If it turns on, you will likely get one of the best barrels of your life. Playa Colorado is a private beach and is accessed by staying inside Hacienda Iguana or by boat. This wave can work on all tides, frequently changes personalities, and can dish out a beating. ADVICE: Stay inside Hacienda Iguana if you want to score Playa Colorado – if you can time the boats and the crowd you can still score an empty line-up here. Bring your paddle arms and an extra board or two! WATCH OUT FOR: Boats, Santana Walkers, and eager surf-trippers who will all paddle out and sit right next to you.
