Property Description

Casa Maya is the only hostel / hotel at Remanso Beach.

Remanso Beach is the premier surf break for beginner and intermediate surfers in the San Juan Del Sur area.

San Juan doesn't have a surf break of it's own in town, so the San Juan surf schools truck their students to Remanso every day.

Why not just stay here and surf before the crowds arrive? Then take a relaxed late afternoon surf after they leave?

Casa Maya is a bright new eco surf lodge, steps away from one of the most consistent waves in Central America with 12 clean bright new private rooms, a small dorm, a well fitted clean shared kitchen, and strong wifi.

Nicaragua enjoys off shore winds 300 days a year, giving us some of the most consistent warm water surfing in the world. Stroll 2 mins to the beach and enjoy uncrowded perfect waves at anytime. No daily shuttle rides required. Be the first in the line-up and last to leave!

Enjoy beachfront bars and restaurant with a vibrant friendly social scene, chill on your balcony with a drink and enjoy the multicolored birds, sunsets and sometime monkeys in the tree canopy. Enjoy free filtered water and prepare delicious drinks and meals in our shared kitchen with fresh local fruits, vegetables and groceries ordered from the best quality supplier in San Juan with free delivery!

Awake to Yoga on the Skydeck with cool breezes and luscious forest and ocean views. Take a beautiful 30 minute coastal hike to Tamarindo Beach for zero line-up soul surfing in the morning, hike 30 mins on to beautiful Hermosa beach, have lunch at their restaurant, surf Hermosa, then hike back through gorgeous sunsets to Casa Maya for drinks and dinner.

Most of our guests extend their stay, and many return. It's the perfect place to experience true peace, recharge and resume your travels refreshed!

Amazing host, quiet location right by the surfer beach, cool set up, though low atmosphere, very far from San juan del sur. Go if you want to surf or quiet Don't if you want to be close to san juan del sur and the parties

Very Good

The location is absolutely perfect if you are there to surf or enjoy the ocean. It’s a bit remote from SJDS (which felt very nice and tranquil ). There are though, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, a good deal of rules, terms and conditions that goes along with your stay here… Nevertheless, I do take Casa Maya as my lawful hostel to surf and to swim from this day forward.

The location is perfect for beginner surfers and anyone looking to relax on the beach for a while. James and Faith are great hosts. Alan and Sophie, who are doing a work/stay, were so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay at Casa Maya. The power did go out on the last night of our stay, and one of our group had to buy a fan to better cool our room, even when the power was up. But we understand that these things are often a part of life in Nicaragua.
