Come Play on Playa Yankee, One of Nicaragua’s Premier Surf Beaches
Whether you are an avid or casual surfer looking for a great surf beach where you can catch the waves? After you’re finished playing in the ocean, catch your breath and relax at a top-rated Nicaraguan hotel just moments away from the beach that overlooks the water. Orquidea Del Sur is a quiet boutique inn that offers amazing family-style service and fantastic amenities. Nestled above Playa Yankee beach, it is an ideal location for surfing and beach vacations, as well as family holidays.

Anywhere there’s a wave, you can attempt to surf. Why Nicaragua? With about 330 days annually of offshore winds, Nicaragua’s southwest Pacific Coast is a magnet for both amateur and professional surfers. Playa Yankee’s beach break acts like a left point on the south side, allowing for a consistent take-off point in the middle of frothy seas. Incoming swells are sizable and challenging, making Playa Yankee an ideal hotspot for surfers to hone their skills or try something new. Primary Colors, a notably “fickle” point break on Playa Yankee’s north end, tempts even advanced surfers. Though Primary Colors is best tackled during low tide, it offers surfers potential for a true adrenaline rush all day under the right conditions. Though most visitors bring their own boards, they are also for rent nearby.
If surfing isn’t your thing but you’re still interested in feeling the sand between your toes, Playa Yankee is a great place to spend hours beachcombing, taking in the majesty of the ocean, wading and sunbathing. We can also arrange a boat cruise to explore nearby beaches for surfing opportunities, swimming, for exploring the aquatic life or just for observing the view. At night, you’ll be amazed at the wondrous hues of the Nicaraguan sunsets. Every one is different. All they need is you!
Packaged tours are available to incorporate any of Nicaragua’s other tourist attractions. Your hosts at Orquidea del Sur will be happy to assist you in arranging the perfect outing for you and everyone in your party.
