Located in the heart of Nicaragua’s surf culture, Mukul Resort offers luxury and adventure for any surfer looking to catch some waves. So, if you have always wanted to surf in Nicaragua but don’t know where to start, we will share tips for a successful surfing day.

Mukul Resort: A Paradise for Surfers

Mukul Resort is surrounded by some of Nicaragua’s best surf spots and has a private beach. Experience the breathtaking beauty of two of Nicaragua’s exquisite beaches, Playa Manzanillo and Playa Guacalito, nestled within the secluded Guacalito de la Isla estate. Immerse yourself in the serenity of Mukul, your luxurious accommodation, and indulge in a leisurely sunset walk along the picturesque Playa Manzanillo.

Manzanillo Point, situated right in front of the resort, is the prized possession. It offers a challenging left-point wave that can only be reached by panga as there is no public road access. Throughout most of the day, only a few resort guests often enjoy the wave, creating an empty and pristine surfing experience. Additionally, the beach breaks in front of the resort are ideal for beginners and can provide playful waves under suitable conditions.
