Two Brothers Surf Resort is a surf retreat on a private hilltop estate in Popoyo, Nicaragua.

Perched on a coastal hilltop with sweeping views of the Pacific, mountain ranges, and tropical forests, Two Brothers Surf Resort is an ideal place to explore the wave-rich area of Popoyo. The top-notch food, epic surf guides, and laid-back family vibes make this place a surfer’s paradise.

Situated in the center of Popoyo, you’ll have easy access to well over a dozen surf spots suitable for all levels of surfers. While the waves tend to be fast and hollow in this area, there’s usually something for everyone. With the combination of offshore winds 300+ days a year and deep-water swells, the local breaks produce year-round surf, so your chances of scoring on your trip are pretty darn good.

The main surf season for Nicaragua runs between March and September when they get the larger and more consistent south swells. Waves can consistently run shoulder to overhead with some stand out spots being double overhead or larger. One of the main draws to Nicaragua is the consistent offshore wind conditions. 300+ days of offshore winds allow you to surf all day every day. October is the only month where the winds can turn more onshore with lots of rain, but it changes year to year.

Two Brothers Surf Resort is located in the Popoyo Zone that has 12+ quality surf breaks in the area with something for most skills levels. Whether it be by vehicle or by boat, the staff at Two Brothers may love surfing more than you do, and they pride themselves in getting their guests into the best waves while at the same time avoiding the crowds.
