It is also located a short walk to the Playa Colorado and Los Perros breaks. The studio contains a modest living/dining area, efficiency kitchen, bathroom, a queen bed and futon sleeper. The studio is also equipped with a safe for your valuables, AC, Wi-Fi and cleaning service. An added bonus to this property is the access to the home's swimming pool if there are no renters in this property's main house (access to the swimming pool is not available to casita guests when the main house is rented).

Casita guests have access to the beach through one of the sides of the main house. The studio is equipped with AC, Wi-Fi and cleaning service.


This studio is located within the Hacienda Iguana development, which is known for its world-class surf breaks. There are 4 surf breaks within walking distance- Playa Colorado, Panga Drops and Los Perros are in the neighborhood and Playa Amarillo is to the south of Playa Colorado (walkable at low tide). We also have a beautiful 9-hole golf course. The course is well designed, beautifully maintained and very affordable to guests.

We would be pleased to arrange airport transfers or a variety of other tours, activities and excursions for you before or during your stay:

- Private and group yoga classes

- Surf lessons and guided surf trips

- Boat and fishing charters

- Massage and spa treatments

- Hot springs

- Horseback riding

- Local community tours

Food supplies:

The best place to get groceries is La Colonia in Rivas, 100m south of the turn off for Tola on the right (west) side of the street. (While in Rivas, you should also top off your fuel because these are the closest gas stations to where you are staying). We HIGHLY recommend stocking up on all or as many of the groceries you will need for your entire stay OR if you don’t want to deal with planning, shopping, and preparing meals ask us about booking the meal plan, our full service catering option.

Eating out:

There are several great food options within the Hacienda Iguana development. In the commercial zone of the development you will find Scoops and Spokes, which serves up some amazing homemade ice cream, good coffee, baked goods, paninis and fresh juices. Side Bar offers stir fry and good cocktails. Don Eloys, which is a sports bar/restaurant, opens daily from afternoon Happy Hour until right before midnight. Casa Maderas is located just past the golf condos and offers authentic Nicaraguan cuisine at a fair price. In the same area, Casa Ananas offers Italian cuisine and daily international special nights. Pili's Kitchen at the Beach Club, in front of the Playa Colorado break, offers a variety of fresh foods, juices, smoothies and full bar.Other restaurants in the general area but in different spots (outside the Hacienda Iguana development) that are worth checking out are: Jasco’s sushi bar at the Riviera commercial plaza. La Scala brick oven pizza and Malibu Popoyo (located in Limon 2), Mag Rock (located in Popoyo), Juntos and Hostal San Gigante (located in Gigante), Yolanda’s and Rancho Santana in the Limon area (ask NSR staff to make you a dinner reservation- need 24 hours advance notice).


We have a well merchandised store (NSR Surf Shop) located inside the Hacienda Iguana development, which offers souvenirs, surf accessories, clothing, beach towels, flip flops, sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuits, wet suit vests and tops, rash guards and more! We also rent scooters, dirt bikes, surfboards, boogie boards and SUPs out of this location as well.Other businesses in the Hacienda Iguana community include Satori Spa, 2 small convenience stores with a variety of grocery items and an ATM is located on the property. Other activities in the development include yoga, horseback riding and in-home massage is also available.The Riviera commercial plaza is located within a half mile of the Hacienda Iguana entrance. Businesses in this shopping center include Jasco’s sushi restaurant, BAC bank with ATM machine and a small grocery store (with the basics).

Getting Around:

This property is located a 2-2.5 hours drive from the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua. Most of the major vehicle rental agencies have locations at the Managua airport (we recommend you make a reservation in advance).

The Costa Esmeralda Airport, located 5 minutes from Hacienda Iguana, opened in late 2015. Direct flights are available from Liberia, Costa Rica on Sansa Airlines. If traveling light, guests may want to consider experiencing the beautiful views and convenience of flying into the Costa Esmeralda Airport. These are small commuter planes with limited cargo storage. Those traveling with full size suitcases and surfboards should check with the airlines before booking ticket to ensure there is ample baggage space on the flight. If renting a vehicle, we feel its only necessary to have a 4wd if planning to travel to some of the beaches further south (in the San Juan del Sur area). If one prefers not to rent a vehicle, we can arrange airport transportation and daily sightseeing/surf trips. We have motorcycle and scooter rentals available and we can also arrange vehicle and boat transport to other surf breaks in the area. There is also the option of renting a vehicle from Alamo and National, which has an office next to the Hacienda Iguana.
