Feel at home at Rise Up Surf

Located in the Chinandega region of Northern Nicaragua, our accommodation includes an original 7-bedroom guesthouse and brand new 5-bedroom guesthouse. Nestled on a clifftop at Punta Aposentillo, overlooking a beautiful bay with peaceful waves, Rise Up is the perfect place to relax and restore. 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.

Our guest rooms

All of our rooms have private baths and air-conditioning. The decor is simple and the rooms are spacious and clean. Each room is furnished with locally-crafted pieces and is designed for three to four people. Do you wish for more privacy? No problem, you can also book a private room just for yourself.
