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 condo, 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.

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, Friday (Surfer Power Yoga) 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.

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.

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.

Year Purchased: 2009
About: 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.
Why Rivas Department, Nicaragua:
We like the remote location at Iguana. The beach is pristine and there is nothing touristic about this experience.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
