Why visit Nicaragua?

Granada and León are Nicaragua’s two most attractive cities, with well-preserved examples of Spanish colonial architecture. Granada is on the shores of Lake Nicaragua, where the focal point is Ometepe, an island dominated by the two volcanoes, that is reached by boat from San Jorge, about an hour south of Grenada. León is some 90 km northwest of Managua and has the largest cathedral in Central America.

Away from the cities, in the northern highlands, the coffee region offers a fascinating insight into the industry where visitors stay in simple rooms, on real working coffee farms.

On the Pacific coast, San Juan del Sur has good hotels, restaurants and beach bars, with smaller quiet beaches along the coast. In the Caribbean Sea, 50 miles northeast of Bluefields, the Corn Islands offer visitors real Creole culture and beautiful beaches. There are two islands – Big Corn Island and Little Corn Island -  with native palms and white sand beaches. These are almost forgotten Caribbean islands and whilst tourism here is in its infancy, a few days here can be included in most Nicaragua holidays.

We tailor-make all our holidays to Nicaragua and many visitors choose to visit Panama as part of a multi-country trip that show cases two of the lesser visited countries of the region, both rich in scenic beauty, colonial gems and dazzling beaches.
