Highlights of Nicaragua - lives up to its name Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Nicaragua

“This is a fantastic trip that truly covers the Highlights of the country: volcanos ( from extinct, dormant to recently become active again), birds, other wildlife, tropical forests, colonial towns and friendly people who had to overcome a, at times, violent history. The itinerary is laid out in such a way that the driving distances are never very long. I don't want to discourage people from visiting Costa Rica, but if you prefer travel destinations where the tourism infrastructure has not yet taken over all the sites, Nicaragua is right for you.”

“This varied holiday included enough relaxation time and organised time tobe perfect. The guide JUAN was excellent. He could answer all the questions without too much detail but with sufficient to be informative but not teacherish. There was not too much traveling in one go. The trip accommodated those who were interested in the workings of the country, those who had come for the volcanos and those who just like to travel. The trip to the local village was a nice touch.”

Stunning Nicaragua Reviewed Tour: Highlights of Nicaragua
5 - Excellent
“What an amazing holiday! Nicaragua is an absolutely stunning country, all lush green forests, dramatic volcanoes and seemingly endless lakes. Granada and Leon are colourful and vibrant yet surprisingly laidback and relaxed. More wildlife than you can shake a stick at. Is there anything nicer than sitting in a rocking chair on your verandah watching the fireflies? The pace of the holiday was perfect. Plenty of activity everyday, whether that's exploring a city, walking up a volcano or swimming in the Pacific, but it never felt overwhelming. No ridiculously long drives and the roads are mostly fine. The only criticism I would have is that it isn't long enough. We could definitely have had an extra couple of days in Leon at the end.”

“Such an interesting trip with a bit of something for everyone. This was more relaxed than some trips that I have done, with no really long drives which was great. The wildlife was amazing and if you enjoy a volcano then this is definitely the trip for you!”

Nicaragua - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Nicaragua is a nation with a rich history and is home to the third largest city in Central America, Managua. After declaring independence in 1821, some US intervention, and a revolution in the 1960’s, this nation is finally finding its footing. With a mix of lowlands, mountains, and coastlines, there will never be a dull moment during your trip to Nicaragua. With plenty to see and do, this Central American gem is something you don’t want to miss.

Tour Highlights

  • Surf in the beautiful city of San Juan del Sur.
  • Take a chance and go volcano boarding; in short, sled down the side of a volcano.
  • If the mainland becomes too much, retreat to the Corn Islands and take a load off.
  • Go off the beaten path and meet the stone man; a man who carves animals and symbols into the caves in Esteli.
  • Relax; it’s a great place to read a book on the beach, or even in the jungle.
  • Caffeinate in Jinotega, and explore a city with plenty to offer.
  • Watch the turtles at La Flor, just south of San Juan del Sur.

Travel Tips

  • Most hotels will refill your water bottle for USD 0.25; save the environment from the plastic.
  • Don’t fear haggling on your holiday to Nicaragua; it will lower the prices and help you get to know the locals.
  • If you want to, do a homestay and learn Spanish.
  • Don’t expect addresses; most places don’t have them.
  • Don’t exchange money at the airport in Managua; the exchange rate is crazy.
  • Fruit can often be picked right from the trees or from the ground under them.
  • In case of an injury or illness, avoid public hospitals.
  • Pack earplugs; Nicaragua is a country filled with early risers.
