One Day Visit to Nicaragua
A Lake, a Volcano and an Colonial City, All in One!
If your accommodation is close to the border, why not take a glimpse of what Nicaragua has to offer on this full day visit to Nicaragua? It’s one of the region’s best kept secrets, as all the wondrous nature— impressive volcanoes, pristine beaches and wide lakes are spiced up with an infusion of colonial architecture and rich history.
Start your day early to avoid any down time at the border, and once in Nicaragua enjoy a traditional Nicaraguan breakfast near the small city of Rivas.
Then continue to city of Granada, where you’ll be exploring this charming town through mid-afternoon. Granada is one of the oldest colonial cities in the Americas—both North and South, settled by the Spanish in 1524, and still remains with the colorful colonial-era architectural influences today. Tour the main city sites on a horse drawn carriage, just as they did over 200 years ago! Enjoy your lunch with a view from the amazing Laguna Apoyo lookout point, from where you’ll see Lake Nicaragua, the world’s 19th largest lake. Then head out to visit the active Masaya volcano to have a glimpse at lava within its crate, bats and incredible views. Finish up the tour at the local artisan market, to stock up with some souvenirs and head back to Costa Rica.
This tour is ideal for anyone who wants to enjoy both history and nature! Your guide will be a wealth of information about the history and culture of the region, and you’ll experience just a bit of what Nicaragua has to offer in just a day. Plus, you’ll get another stamp in your passport!
