Whether you wish to be greeted at the airport by one of our agents, or picked up at the Costa Rican Border, with Welcome to Nicaragua you are in safe hands from the moment you arrive. On arrival at one of our many three-star hotels, you will be supplied with all the info you need for the duration of your stay, as well as details of the exciting adventures that lay ahead of you! And if your flight lands early, you can begin the adventure right away with a city tour of our capital, Managua!
SAN JUAN DEL SUR
Take a morning dip in the pool or choose one of the many activities that the hotel offers before grabbing the shuttle to San Juan Del Sur, a famous fishing village and top destination for surfers and sunbathers alike. In fact, it’s the most popular travel and vacation destination on Nicaragua’s Pacific coast, as it offers idyllic beaches and local culture as well as tourist amenities. If you find it too crowded we can take you to Hermosa Beach, a much more secluded spot which offers the same great surfing and the opportunity to relax. Be sure to head back to San Juan Del Sur once the sun sets. That’s when it really comes alive! Dance the night away with locals and tourists in some of the many beachfront bars.
EL COCO BEACH
La Flor Natural Reserve is a very special place. Ever year from July to January thousands of Olive Ridley turtles come to lay their eggs on the sands of El Coco Beach. It’s hard to predict exactly when the turtles will arrive, or when their eggs will hatch, but those lucky enough to witness the occasion will agree it’s a once in a lifetime experience. If you don’t manage to spot any turtles there is still plenty to keep you entertained in this Pacific paradise. Hiking, horseback riding, snorkeling, bird watching, surfing and fishing are just some of the activities available.
Lake Nicaragua is often referred to as a “freshwater sea” due to its sheer size. At its center, two volcanoes rise dramatically from the water, and are joined together to form Ometepe Island. As the ferry approaches you will already begin to notice the lush landscape and rich greenery that covers the island. Crystalline freshwater pools, beautiful beaches, rainforests, nature reserves, an abundance of wildlife, waterfalls and archaeological sites are just some of the attractions of Ometepe. Relax by the pool, swing in a hammock or take a dip in Lake Cocibolca, the perfect way to spend an afternoon!
Day Five begins with a guided tour of some of the most significant sites on Ometepe Island, like it’s museum and Jose y Maria viewpoint. You also have the opportunity to swim in the famous Ojo de Agua, a natural volcanic spring. The water is rich in minerals that have a variety of health benefits and is said to relieve muscle pain, stress and allergies. You will leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated! After lunch it’s time to catch the ferry and head to Granada where you will get to witness one of the most violent and beautiful sites in nature, an active volcano! See the lava of Masaya Volcano bubble and flow and take some of the craziest pictures you’ll ever take in the spot once known as the “Mouth of Hell”.
Frequently referred to as the most stunning site in Nicaragua, the Apoyo Lagoon is a nature reserve like none you’ve seen before. This enchanting freshwater lagoon is situated in the crater of a dormant volcano, encircled by shady trees, dense foliage, and wild animals. The glistening deep-blue water is clear and temperate, making it the perfect spot for a relaxing and refreshing swim, yet it’s big enough to allow for water sports without damaging the natural habitat. Be sure to check out some of the restaurants in the vicinity while you’re there, and enjoy a nice cold beer! In the afternoon you will be taken on a sunset boat tour of the beautiful islets of Granada. The colourful Pacific sky never fails to offer spectacular evening views and makes for the perfect end to your Classic Nicaragua trip!
