Property description

Rio Dulce V11 is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in Hacienda Iguana. The condo is on the 3rd floor with great views and only 50 yards from the beach, Colorados surf break and the beachfront, community pool, restaurant and bar. The condo building has a chipping and putting green in front for your use and an elevator to easily access the 3rd floor. The condo is very comfortable for a family or 3-4 surfers with a king bed in the master bedroom, 2 twin beds in the guest bedroom and a queen inflatable mattress. The master bedroom has it's own private en suite bathroom and the guest bedroom is just across the hall from the 2nd bathroom. This condo has a/c in all the rooms, black out curtains, Claro TV, a DVD player, stereo, wifi internet, a fully equipped kitchen and hammock on the patio.

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 condo complex. 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.

Rio Dulce V11 is located just about 70 yards from 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. They also offer special dinner nights with sushi, pizza, Italian or Thai cuisine. Don Eloys, Scoops and Spokes and Vana Tacos are all located in Iguana’s growing commercial center where you will also find a La Fise ATM, NSR Surf Shop, Stop and Go Surf Market (groceries), Satori Spa, Iguana Surf School, and our office, Iguana Surf Rentals and Real Estate.

Coco’s Beach Boutique is a small store inside at Casa Ananas (the small white house just east of the golf condos) that offers women’s clothing, jewelry, hats, bags and more.

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.

Golf Scramble: Every Wednesday there is a golf scramble for $25 per person, which includes 9 holes of golf, golf clubs, golf cart, dinner and 1 non alcoholic beverage. Please meet at the Pro Shop at 2:30pm if you would like to play.

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. The golf carts must stay on the interior roads of Iguana.

Activities: We would also be happy to organize activities and transportation for you during your stay. There will be an info guide in your condo with all the activity and day trip options including; boat trips (surf, fish or site-seeing), catamaran tours, surf board rentals, surf lessons, surf photography, massage, yoga, moto rentals, bike rentals, golf cart rentals, horseback riding, atv tours, kayaking, spanish lessons and more. You can find more info on these activities on our website at www.iguanasurfrentals.com/activities/. Please feel free to contact us by email, call us with the phone provided in the property or set up any of these activities at your check in.

Real Estate: If you are interested in checking out the available real estate in Iguana while you are here, please let us know and we would be happy to show you around. You can view the current listings on our website at www.iguanasurfrentals.com under "Real Estate".

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.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: My name is Lindsey and my husband, Seth, and I started Iguana Surf Rentals in 2009. We visited Nicaragua yearly starting in 2005 in search of the best combination of surf, culture, community and nature and think we have found exactly that. We started our adventure of living here by running a small breakfast cafe in the community and that blossomed into many other great opportunities. We have lived here 7 years now and feel we are very knowledgeable about the area, surroundings and surf. We also have 4 wonderful reservationists that work for us Uliana, Kristin, Grant, and Roger and 2 guest relations agents, Grant and Ryan. They all live here in Iguana and also know the area very well and will promptly answer any questions you might have. We all love Nicaragua and Hacienda Iguana so much that we want to share it with all of you! Please take a look at our vacation rentals, activities and real estate and feel free to contact us with any questions.
