Our activities

When we’re not surfing or practicing yoga at Rise Up, we love to have some fun outside the camp. Here is a list of some of our favorite local activities.

Estuary Trip

Estuary trip

We do a weekly trip to explore the estuary. The mangrove forest is home to abundant wildlife such as crocodiles, iguanas, raccoons and a diverse birdlife.



Head out ocean fishing or estuary fishing with our knowledgeable local fishing guide in our fully equipped Panga (speed boat) and catch some fish for a delicious Ceviche.


Beach games

We are blessed to be located on a large secluded beach that’s perfect for playing, volley ball, football or bocce ball when the tides are right.

Sunset Sup


The bay out front of Rise Up is perfect for Stand Up Paddle Boarding, especially during sunset. We also offer guided tours through the mangrove forest in the estuary.

Horse Riding

Horse back riding

Take a ride along the beautiful uncrowded beach and back roads of the stunning Nicaraguan countryside that surrounds the camp.

Volcano Boarding

Volcano boarding

This adventure has become very popular among tourists visiting Leon. The hike, the incredible view and the fast ride down make for an exhilarating experience.

Take a walking tour through our community to learn about local culture. Take part in tortilla and cheese making and learn some new Spanish words.
