nice breaks empty breaks long puerto sandino - Check Miramar surfcamp, it has access to the 1/2 mile stretch of beach, so breaks are less hairy. All the breaks appeared to work best before sunrise and/or high tide. The owner, Pablo, is wonderful, knows the breaks well and has a variety of accommodations that are nice and clean. I was there in August/Sept 2010, the only other surfers were from Surf Tours Nicaragua. This place at "La Flor" is dirty and way over priced. In addition, the owner is too new to the place to be familiar with how the breaks work.
