We cannot say enough positive things about the accommodations, staff members, surf instructors, dining, and our perpetually upbeat program leader, Zivile. The bungalows are out of this world in a setting that is both tranquil and energizing. Soma's owners, Casey and Bill, are involved in every aspect of the experience and take time each day to ensure that they over-deliver...

Beautiful resort. Casey and her team were amazing, accommodating all our needs. Surf instructors were knowledgeable friendly and motivating. As our ability grew, they adjusted their instruction accordingly. Thoroughly enjoyed our week at Soma!

The Soma is absolutely the best place we have stayed at in Nicaragua, and we have been coming to this country for years. Its a good size B&B that is spotless, with attention to detail of a high end five star resort. The owners Casey and Bill are some of the nicest people we've met. The area around Soma is...

I recently went on a women's surf and yoga retreat at Soma and, although I was there for 8 days, the trip wasn't nearly long enough. We stayed in one of the bungalows, which was huge, super comfortable and provided a feeling of total privacy. The owners, Casey and Bill, were among the most gracious hosts I've ever come across...

Stayed at Soma for 5 nights this March. It was my first time in Nicaragua and it won't be my last. The owner Casey and all the staff made it such a comfortable stay. They couldn't have been more accommodating. The drinks, especially the Misfit Gimlet, were delicious and refreshing. The food was fresh and always on point. Absolutely amazing!...

This trip was my second to Soma, the first about five years ago. It was very nice to see that it has thrived and continues with its "mission" to offer an authentic Nicaraguan experience. We were met in Managua (at the Hilton Managua Princess) for the 2 plus hour drive to Soma. Be warned, it is 1/2 way on a...

This place is wonderful! We did the inclusive surf package. The food was delicious and the staff was very helpful and friendly! We are beginner surfers and I felt very comfortable with our instructors Alessio and Bella. They rocked! Our room was really nice and spacious. I did not want to leave and I already want to plan a return...

Pros: The FOOD! The people! The waves! Practicing your Spanish! Cons: You'll want to tear up your passport and never leave. I don't even know where to begin. Casey was such a gracious host, the entirety of the staff was so friendly and amazing (shout out to Roberto, ¡a la orden!) and it felt like home the entire time. Most...

This was my second surf trip to Nicaragua but first visit to Soma. Great property, attentive staff and delicious food. Everything went smoothly from making the reservation to the airport transfers to the weeklong stay at the camp. Surf was in the "fun" range all week with offshore winds (maybe a little too much offshore but it's that time of...

We stayed at Soma at the end of December with our two teenage girls. We had an absolutely amazing time! The owners Bill and Casey are so nice and helpful, and the rest of the staff (especially Kevin and Roberto) were fabulous. We had never surfed before and took two surfing lessons with Bill and Kevin...they were incredibly patient and...
