The Breaks at Finca Popoyo is our 90 acres of paradise. We have nearly a mile of beachfront on Playa Punta Sardina. Most of the surfing world, however, knows our bay as the location of the waves of Popoyo.

This one bay includes arguably eight surf locations, four prospective world class. The breaks include the varied slow rollers of the South Bay(l/r), the delicate, but massive Outer Reef(l), the sometimes there, La Lejana, the nearly endless wave machine – Popoyo(l/r), next up, La Piedrita (r) to beware of the name and finally Rio Nauhaulapa(l).All of the other world class breaks of Tola are but minutes drive from our gate. Truly a surfers paradise!

In 2015, we hosted the ISA World Surfing Games. Like all the national federation teams for the ISAs, come join us for some of the best and most consistent waves on the planet.

Closest pillow to the wave by a long long measure. We are but 21 steps to the beach and a then a ten second walk to the water, paddle out, surf. Every other pillow is, at minimum over half a kilometer and a river swim crossing or two kilometers in the other direcion .

Location

We are located at the beach near the village of Las Salinas in the north of the municipality of Tola, department of Rivas, Nicaragua. With each passing season we grow closer to in time to to you as the national government of Nicaragua successfully completes and improves transportation infrastructure.

Today, the international airport, Agosto Sandino (MGA) in Managua is just two hours distant. We are only 7 km or 12 minutes to the new international airport, Costa Esmeralda, here in Tola. The paving of the coast road is scheduled for completion by 2012.

Day by day, we become more than just a world class surf destination at the end of the earth. Horse back riding, world class yoga instruction, mountain biking, thermal baths, spectacular sport fishing, ropes course, local benefits work and more activities are now available.

This peeling left is essentially the little brother of the Outer Reef. Peeling off the left shoulder of the Outer reef La Lejana, also known as Rubber Duckies, is a pithy and fun left.
