Description

Popoyo is located in the province of Tola, Nicaragua. It requires SW swell to work.

It is a spot with rock bottom and sand working all year except in summer.

Three peaks are delimited in the spot: a reefbreak with right- and left-hander waves better with the mid tide; the outer reef to the left of the reefbreak, and it is a powerful left-hander wave quite dangerous; finally the beachbreak, at the entrance of the first with good waves depending on the swell.

The water is very hot and protect yourself from the sun.

Usually there is a surfer when it works, always respect the preference.
