The biggest wave in the region is at the river mouth of Puerto Sandino. This world class wave is a monster that’s why is the most popular spot in the area. If you are a beginner surfer don’t go there. Sandino demands respect, and you need to be a strong swimmer to surf here. We go easely by boat from our camp, cause if something happens you’ll need it to get you back. With an offshore break , an amazing left-hander over a sand bar awaits. Breaks at dead low tide and surf the coming tide. There’s more, Sandino can break for over two football fields. The break is a left, not a right. If you go right, you’ll not be seen for 45 minutes. You can’t duck dive this wall of water you’ll have to get back out. Sandino is a long wave it has many sections; it can also provide a long barrel section down the line. If this wave is working and connects you’ll see why it could be known as the best wave in Central America. As I already mentioned, go with a guide your first time here, and always take a boat.
