Accomodation near popoyo - Heading to Nicaragua in March & April and I'm looking for some accomodation near Popoyo or Santana. I dont wanna stay in a surf camp or condo as prices are ridiculous. Can anyone recommend a descent place run by locals? cheers

Surf the Boom! - Cam I'm keen buddy. I just saw there was a last minute cancellation so the cabin is available until December 21. I'm in San Juan del Sur right now but can get to Aserradores today. Email me asap and we'll score some tubes!

Surf the Boom - I like the look of this new website www.surftheboom.com Pumping tubes in north Nicaragua and three bucks a day! I just need to find two more people to share the cabin and I'll stay for a few months! Anyone interested email me at caminjapan@gmail.com
