Maderas is arguably Nicaragua’s best kept secret. This town is full of good vibes, amazing surf, and interesting people from all over the world. Renowned for having one of the best beach breaks in Nicaragua, the beaches here offer sandy stretches alongside rocky tidepools ripe for exploration. Leave behind the hustle while still being a short trip away from beautiful San Juan del Sur. Wake up to the sound of Howler Monkeys and exotic birds while you enjoy the best vacation. Stay at Selina Maderas to enjoy healthy food, art, and more – even get some work done in our CoWorking space.
