Mia, Ina, Jim & Finn (American-German)

Jim found Playa El Coco on the search for the perfect spot to build his beachfront dream house in 2002. He immediately fell in love with the beautiful white sanded beach, that is not only very secluded, but also provides for his private little surf break in the back yard.


Ina moved to Nicaragua in 2009. She first lived in Granada where she did the marketing for a hostel and founded a small NGO dedicated to educational projects. 

Jim and Ina met on the beach, fell in love and started La Veranera together. 


Their daughter Mia was born in 2016. Mia loves to go snail hunting during low tide, looking for crabs together with Canela and got her first surf lesson from Daddy when she was 6 month old.

Finn was born in 2020 and enjoys laughing, exploring, long walks in his stroller , and taking it all in.


Robyn and Eva Rosenburg

The newest members to the alumni are Robyn and Eva Rosenburg from Huntington Beach, California. When the opportunity came up to moved to the small little beach, they packed their bags and hopped on a plane. With the pandemic and unrest in the US, Robyn thought this would be a great opportunity to expose her daughter to a different country and culture. Eva, when not doing her online classes, like surfing and sharing her adventure on social media with her friends. 

Elsa and Anna

Love them or Hate them- a house cat has always been a fixture at La Veranera. Elsa and Anna have made themselves right at home. Elsa (the ice queen) fiercely protects her food from the beach dogs that wonder up and let’s them know who is boss. But, if things get tough, Anna is always there to back up her sister.
