  • Lose yourself in the bustling marketplaces of Granada
  • Choose to hike an active volcano and discover boiling mud pools
  • Maybe swim in the brilliant Asososca Crater Lake
  • Perhaps visit a local coffee cooperative in Ometepe
  • Discover why Liberia is nicknamed the 'White City’


Soak up the faded colonial air and architectural charms of Nicaragua's oldest city, strolling its quiet cobblestone streets and timeworn plazas.
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.
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.
Despite its expanding international airport and handy proximity to the incredible beaches of the Guanacaste province, Liberia is more than just a convenient travel hub. With its old whitewashed colonial buildings, sweet mango trees and pretty magnolias, the city has its own charm and a certain charisma. Enjoy some free time exploring the city.
