Pop-Oy-Oy-Oyo!

Standard

The border crossing from Costa Rica was fairly straight-forward, we are getting pretty good at the game! Our first stop in Nicaragua on our drive North, was stunning Popoyo on the Pacific Coast. The drive along lake Nicaragua to Rivas was pretty, and as we got closer to Popoyo, the road became smaller – and smaller.

After recommendations, we decided to treat ourselves to a stay at Magnific Rock Hotel. It’s location is magnificient, perched on top of a cliff, overlooking the ocean.

The beach is long, beautiful and deserted. If you want to have a beach to yourself, this is the place. For surfers, there are a few different options: the reef with two different breaks, a left point, as well as a couple beach breaks. Kyler has been shralping the gnar and is stoked to “have almost been barrelled twice.”

The sunset is stunning and the rock is really cool. Cheers to Popoyo and all it’s peace and beauty!
