Yellow church in Leon

Macaws, Costa Rica

Days 1-2 Granada

Soak up the faded colonial air and architectural charms of Nicaragua's oldest city, strolling its quiet cobblestone streets and timeworn plazas.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Days 3-4 Leon

Travel on to enigmatic Leon, a city where horse-drawn carts still trot the streets and pop-up food stalls hawk their delicacies. Perhaps set out on a day hike up to the smouldering volcano peak of Telica volcano or head for a dip in the dark, cool waters of Asososca Crater Lake.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Days 5-6 Ometepe Island

Cruise out to the volcanic twin peaks of Omotepe Island. The island's nutrient-rich volcanic ash makes for some extremely lush vegetation. Visit a local coffee cooperative to taste the fruits of its soil or take a plunge in the emerald waters of Ojo de Agua.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2

Days 7-8 San Jose

A feisty fusion of Latin flair and brazen modernity, San Jose packs a punch. Peruse the outdoor market stalls for kooky artisan handicrafts or visit the Gold Museum for a glimpse of ancient indigenous extravagance. There's an abundance of tiptop dining options in the city centre, so why not gather the group for a memorable final dinner, looking back over the trip's highlights.
