Rio Dulce V4 is located in the gated community of Hacienda Iguana in front of the famous “Playa Colorados” surf break. It is part of the Rio Dulce Condominiums (Unit V-4) and is a ground floor, corner unit with a gorgeous view of the surf and the condo complex's putting and chipping green. This resort is also the home of “Panga Drops” surf break (which is only a 15 minute walk up the beach from the condo). The community, beachfront pool, restaurant and bar is just 50 yards away.
The condo itself has a fully equipped kitchen with all of the amenities, including a coffee maker, microwave, crock pot, rice cooker, blender, etc... The living room has a large 42' LCD Flat Screen TV, DVD Player and a CD Stereo with an IPod Dock. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a view of the surf right out your window, along with a private bath and a walk-in closet with a safe if you want to lock up your valuables. The other two bedrooms each have 2 single beds in each bedroom and share the 2nd bathroom. Each bedroom and the living are has its own air conditioner and ceiling fan and the condo complex has a back up generator that powers on in case of a power outage.
Hacienda Iguana is the ideal community for those who want to surf, golf, explore or just kick back and relax on a breathtaking beach. It is a very secure community with 2 sets of gates to enter, guards posted around the community as well as full time guards at the condo complex. The security staff in place insures that you will feel very secure and comfortable to roam around the community and beach as you please. That being said the whole area is very safe and you will find that the local community is extremely humble, friendly and helpful.
Rio Dulce V4 is located just about 70 yards from the world class wave, Colorados. Colorados is a fast, barreling beach break with many peaks and A frames. It is a challenging break and best for intermediate to expert surfers. Panga Drops is just a 15 minute walk up the beach and breaks on a horse-shoe shaped rock reef. This wave generally has a mellow take off and a more vertical and playful inside section. This break can be good for long boarders or short boarders. Panga Drops amplifies swells and is usually bigger but more forgiving than Colorados. At the very north end of the beach there is a point break, Los Perros Point, that needs a good swell with the right direction to break, but with the perfect combination it can provide very fun rights.
For those that don't surf there are plenty of other great adventures, activities and day trips you can enjoy. We can arrange surf trips by boat of fishing trips leaving from Iguana if you can swim or paddle out to the boat or out of Gigante if you prefer to load the boat from shore. There are some great hikes in the area to get out and enjoy the amazing views, clean air, nature and wildlife viewing. Hacienda Iguana has it's own challenging 9 hole golf course. A round of golf (18 holes) with golf cart and clubs is only $45/person. On Wednesdays there is an organized afternoon golf scramble for guests and residents. Other available activities in the area include massage, yoga, surf trips by boat or taxi, surf lessons, fishing, horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, SUPing, hiking, bike rental, moped rentals, moto rentals, catamaran tours, transportation and/or day trips to get a taste of culture in the surrounding cities or to go visit volcanoes, crater lakes and other natural attractions throughout southern Nicaragua.

Why Iguana Surf Rentals chose Rivas Department
We were looking for a place to spend our spare time that has a great beach, friendly people, away from the crowds, warm water and great surf most of the year. Our location came with off shore winds on a daily basis, so this was a plus. This is a great get away and we could not be happier with what we have found.

Clean, organized, and an awesome location!
We had great time, very comfortable condo. Great management and customer service! Relaxing atmosphere and enjoyed the downtown area and restaurants.
A Perfect Weekend at a Wonderful Beach
My wife and I spent a perfect weekend at the beach thanks to Grant and Iguana Surf Rentals. We stayed in a very comfortable condominium, Rio Dulce IV. The ground floor condo had a view of the beach, nice patio, was very clean and it was an easy walk to Pili's Kitchen our favorite place to eat and drink on property. The bed was comfortable, good air conditioning and ceiling fans, good water pressure and Grant was available to assist us with transportation, restaurants (Maderas also on property was also very good) and even encouraged us to participate in the beach volleyballl tournament.
Rio Dulce- Perfect Place to Stay to Surf/Golf
I recently (July of 2016) rented a condo unit in Rio Dulce from Grant at Iguana Surf Rentals and he set up everything to down to the last details and made our trip effortless. He greeted us upon arrival, helped book a few day trips for us, and knows where to eat/what to do if the surf is smaller. He went above and beyond and I can't recommend him enough to anyone planning a trip to Playa Colorado's. Thanks again Grant.
Condo with awesome view.
Great condo! It was very convene the being on the first floor. The condo cons with anything you could ever need.
10 Days Of Surf and Sun
Our flight was delayed 5 hours which put us in around 3AM. Our driver that was arranged by Iguana Surf Rentals was there waiting and wasn't upset at all with how long he had to wait.
Once we arrived to Hacienda Iguana and caught up on sleep Ryan came to check in on us and filled us in on the surf, day activities, places to buy food, etc. We had ordered a meal package and met our cook later that day. The meals were awesome!
The condo we stayed in was air conditioned, had hot water and gave us a place to relax when not on the beach.
If you're going there to surf it's the most consistent beach break but it's also no joke. I'd say intermediate to advanced surfers only as the break is quick barrels that will eat boards if you're not on it. We watched a handful of boards leave the ocean broken in two!
The Hacienda Iguana community has everything you'd need. There's even a small market now. Security was always around and we felt safe. If you're looking to just go relax and catch up on some reading or surf your brains out this is a great condo to consider. It's only a 3 min walk from the beach and community pool and bar.
We were fine the whole week without a car and taxis with a guide that stays with you all day was very affordable.
One tip, if you do get a meal package ask for Amilkar. He is absolutely the best!
We had 4 of us staying at the Rio Dulce v4 condo, and we had all we could of asked for. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking pans, and plates, silverware, and glasses. We opted to have a chef come for 5 days, and cook for us, he was wonderful his name was Amillikar, so if you want that kind of service I would recommend asking for him. There is a few places to eat on site, and the food is good. We also rented bikes for the week, and it was well worth it, so we could ride around the complex when we wanted to go shop for food or just ride around. The time of year we went the waves were pretty big, so if your just a beginner on surfing, you may be disappointed, that you can't get out there. The staff we worked with was top notch. Roger, Ryan, Lindsey and Seth were great to work with, they went above and beyond helping us when we needed it. If your looking for a nice relaxing place, I would suggest to go here. You will love it, as we did.
Hacienda Iguana is most well known to surfers as it is the community that boasts the world famous surf break, Colorados, as well as 2 other breaks, Panga Drops and Los Perros Point but is truly a wonderful vacation spot for anyone.

Activities available in the area include; massage, yoga, surf trips by boat or taxi, surf lessons, fishing, horseback riding, snorkeling, kayaking, SUPing, hiking, bike rental, moped rentals, moto rentals, catamaran tours, transportation and/or day trips to get a taste of culture in the surrounding cities or to go visit volcanoes, crater lakes and other natural attractions throughout southern Nicaragua.
