3 Reasons Why You Should Surf at Mukul
Many visitors to Nicaragua’s Emerald Coast are lured to the region for adventure. Tucked within the pristine coastline is one of the country’s premiere surfing locales, and you’ll quickly learn just how intimate of access you have to Playa Manzanillo during your stay at Mukul. Anyone not staying at the resort must book their own boat charter to reach the beach’s famous point break, but at Mukul, you have a front-row seat to one of the greatest waves in the country.

Surf the Waves at Manzanillo Point
Playa Manzanillo first allures travelers with its white sands, but only surfers know this stunning stretch of coastline offers far more than meets the eye. Manzanillo Point harbors one of Nicaragua’s most coveted swells, which usually is big enough to lend to a perfect point break, often including three barrel sections during a small surf-time window the wave allows. Even better, the beach is exclusively home to Mukul, so there’s no need to charter a boat to reach this surfer’s paradise, as you have front row access during your stay at the resort.
