Recommended tour operator: Journey Latin America
Journey Latin America says
If you yearn to explore relatively undiscovered destinations, Nicaragua is fast emerging as one of the world’s most understated, fascinating and unspoiled countries.
We are running just one escorted small group tour to Nicaragua in 2015, departing in May.
This is one of our Discovery Journeys, typified by a more adventurous style of travel – a mixture of public and private transport plus time spent off-the-beaten track, as well as ticking off the must-see sights. Accommodation is generally in small locally-owned hotels which are as authentic as they are charming.
We’ll visit Granada, Central America’s oldest city, and the capital of Managua as well as Ometepe Island (the world’s largest freshwater island), Rio San Juan on the Costa Rica border and the barefoot paradise of the Corn Islands off the east coast.
We’ll also see a Spanish fortress, nature reserves, volcanoes, local markets, coffee plantations and the car-free Solentiname Islands with plenty of opportunity to sample the delicious local cuisine and relax on glorious beaches.
Around 40% of our group tour passengers are single. We will twin you up with another same sex member of the group. You can also opt for a single room for a supplement which varies from tour to tour (£396 for this 17-day holiday).
All our tours are accompanied by one of our expert tour leaders, all of whom speak fluent Spanish and English. You’ll feel as if he or she is a friend, sharing local insights, hidden gems and insider tips whilst making sure everything runs smoothly.
Group sizes are no more than 16 people, big enough to mix with plenty of people but not too big to feel overwhelmed. The typical age range is 35 – 65 years, with people, mostly Brits, from all walks of life who share a passion for travel.
