A travel lifestyle that even I’m envious of…
People dream of being a rock star and really, why? All that travel yet never knowing where you are? The endless sound checks and pressure to have cool hair? The lifestyle of the professional surfer seems so much more appealing to me. A life lived between sky and sea, the surfer travels the world in search of perfect waves finding destinations of little known paradise and exotic cultures along the way. If you want more from your next beach getaway than searching for decent parking and competing for space in the sand, my money would be to follow where the surfers head to and right now the boys of summer are in Nicaragua.
Nicaragua’s beaches have quickly become one of the go-to destinations in North America for surfers looking for big, consistent waves. The water stays warm year-round and the beaches have amenities that range from the full service high end resort experience to traditional “surf camps” that offer accommodations to suit travelers’ needs, skills and budgets. Best of all, it’s far enough away to not have to share waves with huge crowds, but can still be reached from the U.S. in just a few hours. So if you’re still deciding this summer if you should go to Rock Star Fantasy Camp, try surfing instead and know that in Nicaragua summer is all year long.
