Boutique Surf & Yoga Retreat in Northern Nicaragua

Amaru is located on Aposentillo Beach, in Northern Nicaragua’s Chinandega department, just a brief five-minute stroll from the renowned surf break The Boom. The Boom is celebrated as one of Nicaragua’s finest waves, featuring fast and powerful A-frame barrels.

Immersed in natural splendour, Amaru boasts an abundance of beauty, from lush mango trees and towering palms offering fresh coconuts to our permaculture garden where we cultivate a variety of vegetables, herbs, and fruits. Nature’s wonders surround you at every turn during your stay at Amaru.

The Retreat

Amaru’s unique charm extends beyond its extraordinary location, a 40-acre point jutting into the Pacific Ocean, dividing two magnificent black sand beaches renowned for world-class surf. The true enchantment lies within the gardens, wellness shalas, and distinctive structures that offer opportunities for active participation or peaceful detachment!

At the heart of Amaru, surrounded by lush gardens and the inviting pool, Casa Principal serves as the hub where the magic unfolds. It features multiple lounge areas, allowing guests to find solace within the comfort of their rooms. With 7 distinct rooms, Casa Principal exemplifies Amaru’s commitment to sustainability by using locally sourced materials for its furniture. Casa Blanca, the other charming house at Amaru, offers a serene ambience where the soothing sounds of silence embrace you.

Waves at Amaru Nicaragua

In a world where uncrowded, world-class waves are becoming increasingly rare, northern Nicaragua remains one of those exceptional corners. Northern Nicaragua offers consistent waves throughout the year, catering to surfers of all levels.

Amaru clifftop surf resort is strategically situated on a rocky point, creating a natural division between two stunning beaches. The renowned barreling wave of The Boom, is just a short 5-minute walk from the southern side of the point. Amaru has also the privilege of hosting two beginner-friendly waves right below the surf resort on the north side of the point. Additionally, a few intermediate and beginner waves can be found further north, which we visit with the guests daily. For advanced surfers seeking more challenging breaks, they organize regular boat trips to explore the various points and river mouths in the area.

I've used Awave twice ... so far. This is the second time I've used Awave for a trip to the maldives. Stayed in 2 different resorts this time. They've always been incredibly prompt at replying and handled everything for us, making sure the 2 Resorts were in touch to get us transfered half way through our trip. At one of the resorts I even bumped into Giulia and Delia who were out there surfing at the time. There's no doubt in my mind that I'll use awave again if I'm booking a surf trip

Indonesia Surf Trip/ Java/Bali/Sumba - James Colston was my representative from AWAVE - I’m an older solo surfer and James was attentive, respectful, extremely responsive from the initial planning stages all the way through the booking. And he was so patient with all my crazy questions along the way. I couldn’t have been more pleased with James’s level of service. Thank you James

Giulia was an amazing person to book with. I was overwhelmed with choices initially, but AWAVE knew their stuff and helped me with my options and even suggested delaying my trip so I could go to a certain hotel which ended up being the best decision I made all year.

Giulia and James were always on line to answer any question or to give an advice. The Ayada resort is perfect both for families or for couples. We did not have waves as the season goes from April to September, but there are plenty options to have fun and good times. Highly recommended both Awave and Ayada.

The AWAVE team are knowledgable and helpful. Giulia is a very helpful and patient person to deal with, and do not worry, you can trust her. I had to delay my trip to Morocco due to unforeseen circumstances and Giulia was very understanding. I have just returned from having a fantastic week at Amouage in Taghazout. Thanks AWAVE!

Awesome holiday to Hudhuranfushi. Giulia was very helpful and quick to respond and overall we were very impressed with Awave Travel.
Lohi's is a private, on site, awesome left hander that just kept giving. Also had options of 2 daily surf boat trips that went to other local breaks such as Sultans, Ninja's, Cokes, Jails. The surf team are amazing and we scored great waves the whole time we were there.
Stayed in a Sunset family beach villa which was perfect for a family of 4, then upgraded for the last 3 nights to Ocean Villas, both great for different reasons!
Island staff are so helpful and welcoming, and there's a good variety of food options available. Lots of other things to do such as paddleboarding, jet ski-ing, spa treatments, yoga and amazing snorkelling - with sharks, turtles and rays! We also hired bikes to get around and do morning surf checks!
An amazing trip, thank you Awave and Hudhuranfushi!

We had an amazing time on the Mentawai islands booked through Awave Travel.
Giulia was very helpful and available at all times during the booking process. And we had the best time on the Mentawais on the Maki Boat. The staff were amazing. Raul the surf guide was very helpful, friendly and coached us on the waves. Kaique the photographer produced top quality pictures and videos from the water, boat and drone.
Overall very happy and would highly recommend it.

We charted Seafarer for a 10 day trip in the Maldives. We booked with AWAVE about 12 months before. James was super helpful, really responsive and just easy to deal with. We even made a very last minute change to go to the central atolls which he arranged pretty much straight away. The trip itself was unreal, great surf, amazing wildlife and scenery. If you’re thinking about a surf charter, do it and book through these guys!
