What a place. The crew there is amazing, they'll make your stay. The 'grounds' are beautiful – even in the dry season. The food is ridiculously good – we got into 1st breaky around 6 am pre-surf (fruit, homemade granola, yogurt, coffee) and a hot one post surf. Tranquility was found for the majority of the time when not surfing –post...

Two friends and I visited El CocoLoco and it exceeded our expectations. The food, people, surf, yoga, and other offsite activities were all excellent. You truly feel like part of the family given then inclusive and attentive atmosphere. The founding partners and their staff work together in seamless unison and ensure all needs of guests are accounted for. I surfed...

I had high expectations after reading the reviews on trip advisor but after spending 9 days at coco loco, well the reviews didn't do it justice. It's such a rejuvenating place; you can hear the ocean from the cabana's so falling asleep was a breeze. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, and they contribute so much to the community...

This is an amazing (and so beautiful!!) place to stay and surf, whether you are a beginner or expert. The surf spots are not crowed at all, so you'll have a lot of space to mess up... or show off :). (If you want you can find places where it is just you!) The people working at Coco Loco are...

It's the second year of bringing students to Nicaragua and El Coco Loco knocked it out of the ballpark from beginning to end. It's a long 3.5 hour trek from the airport to get there but worth every minute. They take care of every detail so you can fully focus on your students. There is no air conditioning, no wifi...

Well, what can we say. Husband and Wife trip went incredibly right. These guys have really nailed down the hospitality and service side of things. We rented a room at the beach house for almost 10 days but it flew by like 5. We previously arranged a pick-up from the airport which was a 2 AM landing. The driver was...

I have just returned from 7 days at El Coco Loco, and I can't say enough about this very special place. I was there for a Yoga/Surf Retreat and it was so much more. The location is quite a ways from Managua airport (3.5-4 hrs depending on traffic), but SO worth it. I arrived at 11pm into Managua and they...

If you enjoy surfing, fantastic food and warm hospitality, then El Coco Loco is for you. The owners and staff do a wonderful job of making you feel right at home. The location is off the beaten path but it is the perfect location to completely disconnect from your everyday life. The yoga studio has amazing views of the grounds...

I've stayed here twice and highly recommend it to adventurous folks looking for an off-the-beaten-path stay. The surfing is great a 10-minute walk away, with a swimming beach in front of the property. Whatever activities you decide to do, you are going to be hungry and the food is delicious, as well as healthy and features some local dishes, too....
