Surfing Turtle Lodge



The Review

Surfing Turtle Lodge is a beautiful place to hang out and enjoy some down time.

The Location

The beautiful Surfing Turtle Lodge is located right on the beach in the Isla de Brasiles. To get here, you need to take a boat over the river from Poneloya. The property is located right on the beach and is remote and quiet, so that you can enjoy relaxing without the hustle and bustle of many of the other beaches in Nicaragua.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There is one large dorm room here that is on the upper level of the main building. The beds are super comfortable to sleep in. There are also large lockers that you can lock your belongings in for security. The room itself has mesh over the doors and windows to allow a good airflow through the building so that it doesn't get too hot overnight and during the day times. They also have cabanas with private rooms if this is more to your liking.

The bathrooms are located on the level below and there are three toilets, two with showers included in them. The showers are all cold water, which is nice and refreshing in the heat here. They are kept clean and maintained daily.

Common Spaces

There are multiple spaces here where you can hang out and enjoy the relaxing beach. In the main reception area they have a bar with swings; a couple of couches; and a table and chairs for eating, playing cards, and socializing. They also have a large number of hammocks and tables and chairs in the area near the kitchen. On the beach itself they have a volleyball court where people have a volleyball tournament daily and there are little huts where you can sit as well.


Keep in mind that as it is an island and that there are no shops with supplies here, you will need to bring everything with you that you are going to need during your stay. They have a kitchen here with a limited menu, so you will need to purchase food here as there are no facilities for you to keep or prepare your own. They also do not have visa or credit card facilities, so make sure that you bring enough money to pay for your bill. This is a beautiful place to chill out and regroup for a couple of days!
