What's included in this trip
Nicaragua Discovery SummaryAdd to Shortlist
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.
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.
