Just got back from a surf holiday that included 3 nights at the surf condo. We surfed twice a day, once at Colorado and once at Panga Drops, a completely different break a 10 minute walk up the beach. The condo is spacious and beautiful. The ipod docking station and the blender were nice to have. This was a relaxing few days - discovered that there's a masseuse that does house-calls for $45/hour and the pizza and wings at the local pub are decent!

My husband, 14 year old son and myself just returned from a week long vacation. This is definitely the best place to stay! The condo is very roomy and comfortable and we had everything we needed for our stay. We had great views of the ocean and waves from the living room and master suite. We loved being so close to the ocean and wonderful pool. We also had the opportunity to play golf. The owner of the condo is extremely responsive and provided us with all of the information we needed for our trip. He also set up us with a local Nicaraguan who arranged a fishing/snorkeling boat trip as well as had him come to the condo and fix us the most amazing lobster dinner.  This is definitely the place to stay!

If you want to stay in Playa Iguana, then this is the place to stay. Just got back from an 11 day Nicaragua trip with the wife and 4 kids. Many of the condo's on the property may look like they are walking distance to the beach, but they are a very long walk (golf course condos). This Condo is as close as you can get to Playa Colorados. The owner is very accomodating and was very responsive (quickly) to all of our needs. He provides you with driving driections, advice, etc.
I would highly recommend this particular condo to any and all that are interested in going to Playa Iguana and surfing some of the best waves in the world.

I had the pleasure of visiting the Playa Colorado Condo from june 20 - 28, 2009 with my son Dylan who is 14 and a aspiring young ripper. I have traveled extensively surfing at many good breaks around the world. We had an exceptionally good time at this location. The condo was very nicely furnished, with a fully equiped kitchen and tiled bathrooms. The location was perfect because it was on the ground floor on the best corner of the building for viewing the break from the living room or master suite. Maid service was daily. Even though we were in a condo it was still very private and the community security was tight. Of all of the potential places to stay at Hacienda Iguana or Nicaragua I couldn't have picked a more ideal location for comfort or convenience. There is also a pool and covered cabana on the beach to chill and watch the action out front on the break. 

The real attraction for me however were the 2 quality breaks we surfed. Playa Colorado just in front of the condo is a consistent high quality A 
frame river mouth beach break with awesome barreling rights and lefts. The break is powerful but fun. We made a point of hitting it at day break and before dark and were rewarded with mirror glass and a mostly empty lineup. As the day progressed so did the number of surfers however there were so many waves coming through we got our fair share. The vibe in and out of the water was really good between the traveling surfers, local Nicas and expat US full time residents. We made allot of new friends and ran into a few old ones. Most days were glassy with offshore winds. The Lake Nicaragua offshore wind effect is a huge plus. Unlike Costa Rica where most days are limited to the dawn patrol and evening glass off and blown out mid day, we experienced off shore winds all day most every day. 

Further down the beach a 5 minute walk north was another deep water outside rock reef break called Panga Drops. It reminded me of a mellower version of Sunset Beach. We caught it several days with 10 to 12 foot faces. It has a big wall perfect for carving high speed turns. The left breaks into a bay with 100 yard plus long rides and an easy paddle back out. The right while potentially equally long can be a brutal paddle back out if you get the 1st wave of the set and get caught inside. Like Sunset Beach it will go flat for a while and then the sets start coming through leaving

I recently visted Nicaragua with three friends in May and stayed at the Playa Colorado Condo. I have traveled to countless places to surf throughout Central America and I have to say this was my favorite setup. The wave was epic and I could see it from the window of the bedroom I slept. My friends and I logged more barrels in a week than the last 4 trips combined. The wave also doesn't seem to be effected too much by the tide and the wind was offshore all day every day the whole time we were there. Not to mention it was about a two minute walk from our pourch. As for the condo it truly defined the word vaction! If I wasn't surfing I didn't want to leave the place because it was so plush! It has a full kitchen so you can grocery shop and cook your own meals in between sessions. Another great aspect was not having to rally everyone to drive to the break! We have all had those trips, it gets frustrating. We were all able to surf when we wanted for however long we wanted! Not to mention there are two other waves a short walking distance away. There is also a killer community pool overlooking the wave, it has shade with a bunch of chairs so you and your buddies can take turns videoing! Although the waves were a little too good for us to get any of that done. There is a photo guy named Tony Roberts who lives at the condo and he pretty much sits on the beach all day and takes shots. My friends and I all purchased some really sick photos from him which was cool because it was totally unexpected. If you want to get shacked and stay in a top rate condo this is the call!
