Tips on Mukul, Nicaragua by Gavin Potter

PLEASE NOTE: Tropicsurf regrets to inform that Mukul Beach Resort in Nicaragua is closed until further notice due to the uncertain political circumstances currently existing within the nation’s metropolitan cities. Tropicsurf is working closely with resort staff and any information received will be updated on Tropicsurf’s Instagram and Facebook. The team at Tropicsurf is taking expressions of interest for resort packages at Mukul for an expected reopening during 2019.

Now, here's Tropicsurf legend, Gavin Potter...


The waves on property are fun for all levels. If you’re looking to get barreled or perfect your roundhouse, the best time to surf the point is the mid-outgoing, high tide. The best swell report will read 4 foot at 16 sec from the SW at 210 to 220 degrees.

HOT TIP FOR SURFERS: Ask our sales manager Jenni which Bohio has the best view of the surf break. Head over to Guacalito beach around high tide, when it’s wonderful for a snorkel or to watch the sunset.

Local Katherine from the Kids Club is amazing with kids and very knowledgeable about Nicaragua. She adds local culture to playtime. For older kids, the hotel now has archery, and it’s a blast. Great fun for mum and dad to test their skills against their teenagers’ with new compound bows.

Together families can enjoy horse riding on nearby beaches or inshore fishing chasing hard-biting, deep-diving rooster fish.

PROTEIN TIP: Try the tomahawk steak at Tres Ceiba.

DRINKING TIP: Try a macualito (local rum base) mixed by Ronny at the Beach Club.

LOCAL LINGO TIP: Que honda (what’s up?); hermano (brother); todo tuanis (all good). Locals love it when you throw a few words like this at them.

Mukul is now easier to access via the new airport Costa Esmeralda, which is only 20 minutes away from the hotel. It’s also now very easy to transfer across the border from Four Seasons Papagayo.
