Located at the point where Nicaragua’s magnificent Rio Colorado meets the ocean, Playa Colorado is an absolute surfer’s paradise. Playa Colorado attracts both professional and leisure surfers from far and wide. Of course, surfing is not the only attraction of Playa Colorado, but for the majority of surfers all that matters is the quality and consistency of the swell.
Playa Colorado is one of the best beach breaks in Nicaragua. Colorado is a short paddle out, and offers both rights and lefts with plenty of big open barrels with offshore winds all day long.
There are several peaks and plenty of waves to be had. The large and medium sized waves make it a great spot for everyone to enjoy!
Panga Drops is an offshore, horse-shoe shaped rock reef that amplifies any swell. It is a shifty wave that offers big take offs, long rippable walls and big barrels on the inside section. Panga Drops breaks best on a lower tide and can handle any swell that hits Nicaragua. The break requires a long paddle out and is not for the weak paddler. A bigger board is suggested to get into the sets out there. Both long boarders and short boarders will love this wave.
