Tola Travel Tips

Getting to Tola Vacation Rentals

Tola is a small beachfront community located on Nicaragua’s Pacific coastline. It is approximately two to three hours southwest of Managua. To get there, you will fly into Managua International Airport. The airport hosts most North American airlines. There are several flights that operate each week between major hubs in the U.S. such as Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta, Houston and Miami. If traveling from Europe, you may need to route via one of these cities or another Central American cities. From Managua, the easiest option is to hire a car and drive down to Tola. Some of the vacation homes offer a private transfer service which can be arranged on request. This can save you the hassle of having to hire a car and drive yourself.

Beautiful Natural Surroundings at Tola Villas

Many of the vacation homes in Tola are located in gated resort communities. This provides added security and a wide range of facilities. The most well-known resort is the Hacienda Iguana which is a premier golf resort. Much of the natural vegetation has been preserved and at any time of the day, you may see and hear the howler monkeys that are indigenous to the area. You may also spot the resident iguanas that regularly patrol the grounds. Each year in season, the huge leatherback turtles come to the beach to lay their eggs. Many of the vacation homes have beautiful gardens and outdoor decks so you can enjoy the natural surroundings. Relax in a hammock with your favorite book and enjoy the tranquility of Tola. Many of the homes are built from natural hardwoods and have large windows which allow for beautiful views. Enjoy comfortable furnishings and spacious living areas. Some villas offer the services of a housekeeper or chef that can take care of all your vacation cleaning and catering needs. There are a handful of private vacation homes that are located along the beachfront. These are generally larger, more luxurious, and suitable for groups of friends or large families.

Be Close to the Surf at Your Tola Oceanfront Rentals

Tola is known as one of the premier surf destinations worldwide. On either side, it has two main surf areas that are within a few hundred meters of one another along the coast. Playa Colorado is to the south and known as the Nicaraguan Pipeline. The area is a sand-bottomed beach break which is fed by the waters streaming out of the river mouth of the Rio Colorado. This famous surf spot is where most of the Nicaraguan surfing videos are filmed. The second prized surf spot is just to the north of Tola and known as Ponga Drops. Here, there is a deep water reef that amplifies the swell, providing excellent surfing conditions. The result is an impressively large rolling wave that allows for long rides and carving turns.

For non-surfers, the area still has plenty of attractions. Golfers can enjoy the 9-hole golf course as a regular daily outing. For those looking for something more energetic, you can get in touch with some of the local tour operators. They can arrange guided horseback riding or hiking excursions. If you are looking for a thrill, you can go on a treetop canopy excursion through the rainforest.
