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.

November is here and the sun along with it. The waves have picked up and the people are returning from their sabbaticals abroad. Gentle offshores with some evening showers and green hasn’t left yet so the feeling is tropical. The waves have been good. Slightly overhead and all the sandbars working at Amarillo. Colorado is pumping like usual with more lefts then rights but perfect almost daily. Panga Drops is still doing its thing by picking up the most of every swell and point peeling in from the outside. We will be watching Manzanillo this month to see if it works, which will be fun. Gigante bay knows its secret spots too. We will be checking those on the daily to escape the crowds and surf alone.
For Fishing we can say its gonna be good. The Dorado are leaving town but the Snapper and Macarel are showing up. Tin Tin is all geared up and going out daily, finding new spots and catching dinner for the entire family.

What's on the plate for November in Gigante?

November is going to be a fun month with Fred the new French Chef in the kitchen making specials and trying to speak anything but French. Crapes are the theme; curry crepes, veggie crepes and sweet crepes.  We will also be offering our Pigrams plates for 50 cords, a complete meal to continue the voyage to self-awareness.  This will be available to everyone that signs up.

Robbies birthday on the 5th will be a BBQ Blast.  Smoked fish and meat with plenty of sides and Vodka to wash everything down with.  Typical Robbie fashion, classic.

We will be trying some new DJs this month so drop in for House, Jazz or Reggae.  The beach is a perfect place to start a fire and watch the sunset into forever.  This is your Gigante, the big dream we all have to be free and alive. Join us to enjoy the beach and bring a wonderful November to our lives.
