Okay Iíve searched the posts and havenít found a thread that answers the question(s) Iím after so here goes: My wife (god love her) has agreed to a week to 10 day long trip to Nicaragua with the whole family. My sons donít surf yet (currently 8 and 4,) but the older one may be surfing by the time we go (planning this for March of 2016.) The wife doesnít surf.
Iíve looked at a lot of the all-inclusive resort packages, yet very few (that I could find) offer much in the way of info for costs/activities/etc. for non-surfers. I think some place called Surf Sanctuary was the only one that listed ďnon-surferĒ prices that I could find, which were reasonably less than the ďsurferĒ price.
So, before I start calling every resort down south, hereís the question(s): Has anyone done something similar (i.e. traveled to a surf resort in Nica with non-surfers)? If so, what was your experience? My wife is very chill and wouldnít need scheduled activities. I plan on surfing as much as possible but would also like to spend time with the family, doing whatever other side trips, etc. a resort might offer in addition to just chilling or even getting my sons on a board.
Alternatively, Iím down with piecing a trip together myself. Iíve trekked to some pretty far-flung places with the wife, family, solo, etc. It seems like with young kids in tow Nicaragua might be better enjoyed in an all-inclusive deal, but Iíd like to explore all options.
And to take it a step further weíre not totally dead-set on Nica, so has anyone done a similar trip elsewhere in Central America? I know CR supposedly has better waves.... Panama maybe?
Not on a tight budget but I obviously wonít be taking a Gulfstream 650 down there.

you can rent houses/condos with pools right on the beach at colorados in nicaragua pretty cheap and even get a cook and someone to drive to and from the airport.

I think costa is more family oriented.nica is still a developing country,and while u surf,they will be sitting on the hot azz beach getting sunburnt instead of going shopping or whatever they do in south America.nica is great for surfing,but I wouldn't take my family there

Cool- well thanks for the input; we've got quite a bit of time to figure out the best options. I think my wife may be more inclined to go to CR, but hey, I don't really care where we end up down there. I get to surf and can leave the hooded 5/4/3 in my garage.
