Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Hacienda Colorado is located on Playa Colorado - directly in front of the surf break, Colorados- sometimes referred to as the Nicaraguan Pipeline. You can sit in the gorgeous beachfront pool or under one of the covered patios- either upstairs or downstairs - and watch extreme surfing from morning until night. Or take a walk along the 1 1/2 mile white sand beach which has 2 additional surf breaks: Panga Drops and Los Perros Point. There are also a couple of beaches in the area where the waves break more gently for beginner or intermediate surfers. There is plenty of territory for boogie boarders and swimmers. Boat trips are easily accessible for trips along the Nicaraguan coast to other popular breaks. We are also only about 40 yards from the beachfront community pool, bar and restaurant (open for all 3 meals).

The house itself has 4 comfortable bedrooms; a master suite with a king and twin bed, 2 ocean view guest suites, each with a queen and twin bed in them and a 4th bedroom with 2 twin beds. Each bedroom has it's own ensuite bathroom. The house is ideal for 1-2 famlies, 3 couples or 8 surfers. There is an interior courtyard and garden where you can relax and enjoy the fountain - the perfect place for relaxing with a book in the afternoon. The whole house has a/c including the downstairs living area. The kitchen is world class and fully equipped. Daily housekeeping, pool cleaning and a night guard are all provided at the house.

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 beach club nearby. Hacienda Colorado also has it's own night guard specifically for the house. 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.

Hacienda Colorado is located directly on 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.

Our rental management company, Iguana Surf Rentals, is located in Hacienda Iguana and we are around and available for anything you might need and any to help with any questions or concerns you might have. We provide an info guide in the house, with information on activities, hikes, day trip ideas, maps, a restaurant guide, local restaurant menus etc.

Within the community of Hacienda Iguana there are currently six restaurants. The restaurant at the beach club serves healthy and delicious plates for breakfast, lunch and dinner and has a great beach bar with happy hour specials. Don Eloy’s bar and restaurant serves sandwiches, wings, bar food and pizza, has a full bar and is open from 3-11pm. This is also a great place to watch sports games. Scoops and Spokes is an artisan ice cream, coffee and panini shop that also offers bike rentals and tours. They also have a special beer pong night on Saturday evenings and a crepe and mimosa breakfast special on Sundays 9am-12pm. Vana tacos is a taco shop right behind the Iguana Surf Rentals Office and is open for lunch and dinner with veggie, chicken and carne asada tacos and burritos. Casa Madera is a restaurant with local Nicaraguan cuisine, open for lunch and dinner, and located in the wood house just east of the golf condos. Lastly, Casa Ananas (located just east of the golf condos) is open for breakfast and lunch and has delicious plates including vegetarian and Italian options. They also offer special dinner nights with sushi, pizza, Italian or Thai cuisine. Don Eloys, Scoops and Spokes and Vana Tacos are all located in Iguana’s growing commercial center where you will also find a La Fise ATM, NSR Surf Shop, Stop and Go Surf Market (groceries), Satori Spa, Iguana Surf School, and our office, Iguana Surf Rentals and Real Estate.

The Satori Spa and Gift Shop is located in Iguana’s Commercial Center just across from NSR Surf Shop. Satori Spa is a boutique day spa that offers massage, facials, manicures and pedicures, waxing and body treatments and offer in home treatments upon request. They also have a great gift shop with handmade artisan crafts from Nicaragua.

Coco’s Beach Boutique is a small store inside at Casa Ananas (the small white house just east of the golf condos) that offers women’s clothing, jewelry, hats, bags and more.

Amenities Close By but Outside of Iguana:

Just outside of Iguana’s gates (3km away) there is the Rivera Market Place with an Avis Car Rental Company, BAC Bank Branch and ATM, Rivera Market/Grocery Store and Bordport Surf Shop (long term surfboard storage, surfboard sales and retail). There are many other great restaurants within a 10-20 minute drive from Hacienda Iguana.

Car Rentals: There are now 3 car rental agency options that are close by or service the Hacienda Iguana community. There is a Dollar kiosk at the Costa Esmeralda Airport that upon reservation will pick guests up in Iguana and bring them to the airport to get pick up a car (free of charge). There is an Avis car rental office in Riviera Market, just outside of Iguana’s gates. They do not deliver cars or pick up guests but you can get a taxi out to the office to pick up a car. A reservation is suggested as their inventory is limited. Lastly, Alamo will deliver and pick up vehicles to and from your rental property in Hacienda Iguana for a $40 fee. They bring their vehicles up from San Juan del Sur so a reservation is required.

Yoga/Fitness Class Schedule: Drop in yoga classes are held at the small beachfront palapa at Mark and Daves and are $12/person. Mark and Dave’s is located in the middle of Iguana beach, just south of Panga Drops where there is a large palapa and small palapa right next to each other. The Yoga schedule is the following: Tuesday (Intro to Ashtanga) at 10am, Thursday (Vinyasa Flow) at 10am and Sunday (Yin) at 10am. Private yoga and fitness classes at your rental property are also available for $60 for 1-4 people and $12 for each additional person.

Golf Scramble: Every Wednesday there is a golf scramble for $25 per person, which includes 9 holes of golf, golf clubs, golf cart, dinner and 1 non alcoholic beverage. Please meet at the Pro Shop at 2:30pm if you would like to play.

Bicycle or Golf Cart Rentals: We can organize a bicycle or golf cart rental for your stay to make it easier to get around and explore the area. Guided mountain bike tours are also available and give you a chance to see howler monkeys, iguanas, a sloth and other wildlife. Please let us know and we would be happy to make a reservation for you. The golf carts must stay on the interior roads of Iguana.

Activities: We would also be happy to organize activities and transportation for you during your stay. There will be an info guide in your condo with all the activity and day trip options including; boat trips (surf, fish or site-seeing), catamaran tours, surf board rentals, surf lessons, surf photography, massage, yoga, moto rentals, bike rentals, golf cart rentals, horseback riding, atv tours, kayaking, spanish lessons and more. Please feel free to contact us by email, call us with the phone provided in the property or set up any of these activities at your check in.

Real Estate: If you are interested in checking out the available real estate in Iguana while you are here, please let us know and we would be happy to show you around.

Important Info: Please make sure and stock up on groceries and fill your car up with gas on your way to Iguana. Rivas is your last chance for a large grocery store and gas station and is 45 minutes from Hacienda Iguana. There are a few small markets or convenience stores in the area where you can re-stock on essentials but it is best to do the bulk of your shopping in Rivas.

About Iguana Surf Rentals

We retired to Nicaragua in 2007. We enjoy relaxing on the beach, swimming, boogie boarding, and watching the surf. We have a lot of company when we're here and our house is set up for entertaining. We also enjoy walking the beach, hiking, adventures on the rocks, and golfing on a mostly empty but beautiful course - no worry about tee times here.

Iguana Surf Rentals purchased this house in 2009

Why Iguana Surf Rentals chose Tola

We like the remote location at Iguana. The beach is pristine and there is nothing touristic about this experience.

What makes this house unique

Most importantly, we are on the break. Because it is a beach break (sometimes known as the Nicaraguan Pipeline) we can watch extreme surfing while sitting our our patio. It is also a popular spot for cocktail hour at sunset.

THE perfect surf spot! Lots of Space and Super Nice Staff

  • 4 of 5

Looking for that PERFECT spot for big, beautiful, light surf? This is it. This house on Playa Colorado made it a cool trip for us. Mom (I) could wake up and have a coffee on the patio or balcony and watch the kids surf these amazing waves. Note: these are really big waves - not for the beginner. My non-surf kids played in the surf closer to shore, but, again, these are teens, not toddlers. Just a short walk down the beach you can find smaller surf. The house itself is large and well laid out. I like that the master bedroom was upstairs and the other bedrooms (lots of them) lined around the hacienda entrance. That made the kitchen and family room available to anyone up early or late without disturbing anyone else's sleep. The staff provided was terrific. Marta, the housekeeper, came every day and she was adorable and willing to do whatever was needed. The chefs we got made it a vacation for ME and they made food my kids loved for a good price. The house had tons of space for sitting wherever you are most comfortable. Shade, sun, hammock nap, lots of rocker chairs. The whole Hacienda Iguana area was very friendly and safe. The beach is very private and chock full of super nice surfer people, mostly Americans. As a traveler, I like to see the real country I am visiting, so I needed to get out of our little America there. Grant secured a driver and helped plan out the adventures we did. The drivers were terrific in every way: safe, reliable, knowledgable, etc. However, while this Playa Colorado is a perfect surf location, it's pretty far away from some of the sights like the volcanoes, Granada, etc. It was a good 2 hour drive each way to Granada. It was worth it, but made for a long day. Our negatives on the house were few but should be noted: the toilet in the Master could us a pump as it clogged many times. They were very quick to respond to our service requests, but it was frustrating. Whenever you pay a lot of money a night you expect basic things to work. The house could probably use a little bit of cosmetic work. It felt a little tired in the kitchen, particularly. Two of the bedrooms had some pretty big water leaks when it rained heavily. Again, they responded quickly to our requests and were very happy to take care of anything, but it felt like the house needed some work to charge full price. Nicaragua is buggy. Bring spray with DEET. We highly recommend this house despite the few negatives!

Perfect house

  • 5 of 5

Hacienda Colorado is the perfect house. Everything is specious, clean, and has the best location on the stretch of beach. Uliana was very helpful getting us set up and Seth made sure we had everything we needed when we arrived. The pictures looked nice but we were all shocked when we arrived and actually walked through the house. The cooks and cleaners were great. Everything about this property was amazing. Cant wait to go back.

Amazing spot right in front of the main surf break!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house along with 2 other couples and one 3 year old. It was absolutely amazing. If you have surfers with you, we did, the main break Colorados is literally in front of the house. If you weren't a surfer, this house would still make a lovely romantic getaway. The upstairs has a separate entrance and is HUGE, so just decide who gets that ahead of time if you are traveling with companions. The rental agency Iguana Surf Rentals was fabulous to work with. Nicaragua is a truly lovely country, worth visiting. We used Mateo Blevins for arranging our chef, transportation, and any and all needs we had during our stay, he was great!
