Playa Colorado is one of the premier surf locations in all of Central America with year round swell and prevailing offshore winds. There's no need to spend valuable vacation time searching for waves - Colorado's is regularly featured in surf mags, videos, movies .... if you want to get barreled while on your vacation Colorado's is THE PLACE!

About Greg Pero


My wife Darlene and I are life long Southern Californians. When we're not slaving away at our jobs and daily routines, we love to travel, explore new places and relax/decompress from our normal lives. My lifelong passion (obsession) for surfing led us to explore vacation destinations where we could relax, explore, enjoy various activities and i could easily fulfill my surfing passion.

In February 2014 we visited Nicaragua and Hacienda Iguana for the first time and we both immediately fell in love. It met all the criteria, easily accessible world-class waves, safe-relaxing environment, amazing beauty and enough activities to keep my non-surfing partner happy.

At Darlene's suggestion, we inquired about owning a piece of this Nicaraguan paradise. One thing led to another and in March 2014, we purchased a 1/4 acre lot - located a very short distance from the Colorado's surf spot. In May 2014, we broke ground and construction of our Casita was completed in December 2014. We anticipate the completion of the landscaping and addition of a private pool to be completed in early 2015.

With each visit we continue to be amazed at the beauty, explore and discover new things, gain better understanding of the culture, make new friends, surf my brains out and reaffirm our love for this little piece of Central American paradise.

We look forward to sharing our little 'home away from home' with you.

Had an amazing time. Rob the caretaker of the property does an outstanding job. The house is super clean and all their employees do an amazing job w smiles on their faces. Will definitely be back soon. Waves are pretty much firing everyday.

Gorgeous property with comfortable beds!

We came with our family of 4 and had an amazing time. This property is in a great location close to Colorado’s. It also has a beautiful palapa in the backyard with pool that we enjoyed all throughout our stay. We will definitely be back!

Casita Pero is the way to go!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Very clean, quiet, comfortable and convenient to the beach. Rob the property manager was great and always ready to answer our questions or supply us with any items we needed. Michael kept the pool and grounds immaculate and a young lady came every other day to clean the casita. We opted for meals to be prepared every other night and were lucky enough to get Julio as our chef, he was awesome! We also rented a golf cart for the week which was the perfect way to get around the area. Thank you Rob and Greg for a great vacation!

Can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about my experience staying there. I was there for two weeks and wish I could have stayed on!

Everything about the experience was beyond expectation! The house itself is beautiful and very well appointed. It has a wonderful 'flow' to it. The bed and linens were SUPER comfy! (Sometimes TOO comfy ;-) the kitchen is well stocked with cutlery and cooking utensils. Wifi was very reliable and was able to stream reliably any time I wanted. The rooms have AC, but I found I never needed to use it as the fan was more than adequate.

The property manager Robert and his wife Olga, were SUPER helpful and VERY attentive. One evening Olga arranged for oysters to be delivered right to my door! They were delicious!! And the kind lady who delivered them was good enough to open them for me (Thank Goodness!!) If I got bored, Olga always had a solid recommendation on the surrounding area and places I might like to see. I have never been SO pampered!!

I went to the Spa twice while there and had the MOST incredibly relaxing massages. I would say that this is a 'MUST DO' and should NOT be missed! Both times I went, I left feeling like a bowl of relaxed Jello! When I return to the area (and I will be returning:-) That Spa will be my first stop! I miss it already.

A car isn't really necessary, as bikes and golf carts make puttering around the grounds easy.

Plenty of restaurants in the area, which is always a bonus for me, and an afternoon 4:00 pick up volleyball game on the beach, promptly became my dinner time entertainment! LOVED IT. People were SO VERY friendly, and I absolutely relished in the community type of atmosphere! If you go, be sure to hit the beach bar and say hello to Lorraina one of the bartenders there. Her smile is infectious and always quick to ask about your day and make you feel like you've known her your entire life. Never did I want for anything! I always felt very safe and I am a solo female traveller, so that's a HUGE bonus for me. I would highly recommend this property and area for a family with kids. The kids would have a blast!

If I could give 6 stars I would.

Already planning my return to the house, and my new found 'family' :-)

Kudos to everyone, you're truly all over the top!!

Thank you so much for allowing me to drop in on your little slice of heaven!

Playa Colorado New Years 2017

  • 5 of 5

After a mix up with the property, the Owner and Property MGR were able to get my family squared away. They were very helpful and accommodating. We absolutely loved our time at Playa Colorado. The Villa was outstanding. Beautiful views, close proximity to the beach, neat, clean ample rooms, and maid service. It was a fantastic experience and I would certainly recommend Playa Colorado and any of Mr. Pero's properties at Iguana to anyone looking for getaway spot.

Beautiful Spot!

  • 4 of 5

Great casita in Hacienda Iguana with a lovely location on a quiet road. The house is beautiful and feels quite spacious and was more than enough room for our family of four. The grounds, including the pool and palapa, are peaceful and very well maintained. The kitchen could use a re-stocking (not enough plates or bowls, no veggie peeler, etc.) but otherwise, we found all we needed for a week long stay.
