Relax Your Ass Slowly at Surfing Turtle Lodge in Nicaragua

What I didn’t like

There isn’t anything that I didn’t like about the Surfing Turtle Lodge but there are a few things to consider:

  • All food and drinks must be purchased from the on-site restaurant/bar since there are no restaurants nearby. Although we didn´t take our own groceries, there is no kitchen available for use had wanted to cook our own meals (suggestion: Stop at a grocery store or little shop for some snacks and fruit beforehand – save money).
  • The kitchen is only open up to 7:30 pm. We had to stock up on food each night before the cook left.
  • During the rainy season mosquitos may come out at night – walk with some repellant just in case.
  • Although turtles can be seen on shore in front of Surfing Turtle Lodge year-round, the height of the egg-hatching season is from December to March. For more information on the turtle-hatching project at the lodge, click here.

  1. Thanks for the great review!!!! Looks like a sweet place to relax. Perfect off the beaten path place to stay. I’m so in! 🙂

  2. I stayed there in Dec-2012 and was greatly disappointed by the place. It’s in a beautiful natural setting isolated from outside world, but the place was for the quality it offers overpriced disaster. BTW, they call themselves eco-friendly, but when I wanted actually enjoy myself in hammock and read a book, there was noisy gas slurping generator running near by ruining everything. Beach volleyball net was in desolate condition and food at most mediocre. The only positive thing about the place was pretty cool turtle release in the evening and cold beer.
