Rappelling in Playa Gigante - Nicaragua

Playa Gigante is tucked between a super fun surf spot and a towering rock formation called Pie de Gigante (Giant's foot) - The foot that looks over Playa Gigante, Playa Amarillo, Colorado, Panga Drops and Rancho Santana to the north. The view from the foot extends past these places, and the ocean sunsets are breathtaking. The foot's south side offers a 289-foot drop that that sets the scene for the ultimate rappel in Nicaragua.

Walk the plank!

Beach accommodation for your every need in Playa Gigante
Imagine the beach house of your dreams - the smell of surf wax, accommodation just steps away from the crashing waves, coffee breaks the dawn while the salted Gigante air is washing the sleepy away. This is your home and it looks like a Wooden Beach Hostel, a Colorful corner Lodge or the luxurious High End Casa. Welcome back because I know you’ve been here before, maybe in a dream or something.
LUKE...the music was always good and the conversation was never-ending interesting. I will always come back.

Overview

Camino del Gigante hostel is the place to be. Incredible staff and great food right on the south end of Gigante beach. The hostel accommodation provides a great place to lay back, hang out and meet great people from all over the world.  Located on the sand with the waves for a front yard and the Nicaraguan setting sun for dessert makes the beach lodging experience truly beach.  Stumble onto the restaurant patio, a bar stool or just the sand from your room, this is vacation, this is your moment.

Camino Hostel

With 9 rooms to he house, 3 with private baths and the others share. Mingling in between the new facilities isn't so bad, actually it's fun.  One room has a window to the stock area but everything else gazes into the jungle or upon a incredible sunset.

Colorline Lodge

This is a colorful gem. A massage patio up stairs is shaded by thatched palm and cool like a Tona beer at two.
 The lodge grounds are home to turtles and baby ducks, like a delicate farm of flowers and green.
Each room has a private bath and no shared wall, sol standing color cubes draped with beautiful openness and natures song, crashing waves with blowing trees.

casa amarilla

Casa Amarilla

This simply elegant Japanese design soothes the soul and lightens the step.  Big spaces and attention to detail has coined this house as the "most comfortable house in Gigante"  Upstairs consists of a very casual grand master bedroom over looking the patio and any of the many spectacular sunsets. Across the hall sleeps the garden state AC room with two twins usually pushed together for fun .  Both room have loads of closet space and multiple windows for a cross breeze when some fresh sea air is in need.  The hall spills out onto the huge mixed dinning slash living room.
