Feel at home at Rise Up Surf

Located in the Chinandega region of Northern Nicaragua, our 7-bedroom guesthouse and brand new 5-bedroom guesthouse is nestled on a cliff top at Punta Aposentillo overlooking a beautiful bay with peaceful waves. On a clear day, the awe-inspiring views extend all the way to El Salvador. Our property is a green oasis of native fruit trees and flourishing gardens. On its south side, a second stunning and secluded beach is home to one of Nicaragua’s best surf breaks.
