Recording in Paradise: Maderas Studios, Nicaragua

Maderas Studios is the latest addition to Maderas Village; a boutique hotel located in SW Nicaragua atop the surf-scattered beaches of Playa Maderas. It is a home to travelers, creatives, and like-minded thinkers. Maderas Studios, a recording studio in paradise , opened February, 2015 with our inaugural Maderas Music Week.

Designed by veteran engineer and studio designer Frank Comentale (Hit Factory, Daddy's House, Platinum sound, Stadium Red), this state of the art recording studio is acoustically tuned and fully equipped. From the second-floor one-bedroom Musicians Lounge, you have an open, panoramic view of the Maderas surf break as well as cable runs down to the studio for mics and cue. Since opening, artists such as MGMT, Connan Mockasin, Ariel Pink, St. Lucia, The Knocks, ASTR, Phosphorescent, and many local Latin American artists have recorded with us at Maderas Studios.
