Our verdict:

Off the tourist map for so long, Nicaragua is now one of the most exciting destinations for adventurous solo travellers. Home to Central America’s oldest city, nature reserves, volcanoes and unspoiled islands, singles looking to head off the beaten track will love Journey Latin America’s expert-guided tour, including room-share option.

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.

Our 18-day Cotinga Tour 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.

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.
