Surfing Turtle is a lively, fun and social beachfront hostel located on a beautiful stretch of empty beaches in Isla Los Brasiles, at Northern Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast, Central America. It is a 20 minute drive from the historic city of Leon, a short boat ride and horse cart ride on the island.  Also, we explore travel with an off the grid approach, powered with solar panels, an onsite turtle hatchery (click here for more info), and growing some of our own food.
*Please note that due to the remote location and reliance on solar energy, the Lodge is a rustic experience that is ideal for travelers that enjoy a vacation “off the beaten path”.

*No offsite food or drinks are allowed on the property.
