The best season for Nicaragua is generally the same as in the Mantawaii, with May through September the prime months. During this time the wind is often offshore all day long for weeks on end due to the lake effect of Lago Nicaragua as well as Gulf trade winds. Flights from LAX only take about 5 hours, and arrive in the capital city of Managua. From there it is about a three hour drive to the surf camp. The best airfare for travel within Central America is TACA airlines. They have the best schedules as well as the best board policies. Board fee's are $50 per board bag, with a limit of 1 bag with 2 boards per person.
