After a two-week holiday in El Salvador and Nicaragua it was time for some work. I already had spend some days in San Juan del Sur, incl. the legendary Sunday Funday but I prolonged my stay to visit the Dreamsea Surf Resort, a surf camp which we already offer for quite a while. From the centre of San Juan del Sur I hopped onto a shuttle, which was going to take me to the surf resort, close to the famous Playa Maderas. From the first moment after getting there I knew I was in paradise.
Despite the fact my visit was in the middle of the dry season, the spacious garden still looked very green. It felt like I was in the jungle while I made my way to the reception. At the moment of my arrival, the resort was empty as everyone was out surfing. Only José was around, the manager in Nicaragua whom I already knew from years ago in the Dreamsea Surf Camp Spain. Over a smoothie and a great lunch we talked about the resort, the guests and the great surf the area was offering.
The two nights I stayed I was lucky enough to meet great surfers and other guests from all over the world. The first night, after a very tasty dinner, the game night was on. Across a number of tables, different games were played. I ended up on the poker table, where we had a very nice and interesting game, with both beginners and more experienced poker players. The atmosphere was very good but as the game proceeded, people became slightly more serious – I loved it. For about 2.5 hours we played some serious poker while enjoying a delicious cocktail from the bar. It was clear that quality had a high priority at the resort. The food, the bar, the service and the pool, everything was maintained in an excellent state. The manager of the resort José, who is already for a long time with the Dreamsea family, is Chilean but all other employees were Nicaraguans, giving this resort a nice and local touch.
The second evening, we went up to a bar with an amazing view. From the infinity pool you could see the sun setting into the sea (picture on the top of this article). With a cold drink and a taco on the side, life just couldn’t get any better. After an hour and a half, it was time to get back to the resort, for another amazing meal. Nica-night was on, where we were served typical food from Nicaragua. After the dinner, people were preparing for a movie night, with popcorn. There are many more activities planned in the surf camp through out the entire week.

I experienced myself how happy everyone was and 2 guests even prolonged their stay with another week (that option is, due to availability, certainly not always possible). I cannot wait to come back here one day where I will be staying much longer than only 2 nights.
