Central Nicaragua Surf Spots
Welcome to our Central Nicaragua Surf Spots section. Here you will find El Transito surf forecast as well as information about the 4 main surf breaks in the area: El Transito, Puerto Sandino, Punta San Diego and Asuchillo.
When to go: Central and northern Nicaragua have less offshore wind than southern Nicaragua, due to the larger distance from Lake Nicaragua. Upside: Offshore winds never get too strong, hardly ever upwelling and the water stays warm year round. Downside: In the winter (May to October), seabreezes often kick in the afternoon.
March-Aug : Big swells with offshore wind
