The land of lakes and volcanoes is a great destination - especially for families and lovers of nature and the outdoors. Nicaragua´s small size means travel around the country is easy without internal flights. Gorgeous colonial streets in Granada and Leon are surrounded by a fine selection of dramatic and active volcanoes. The north of Nicaragua holds lush cloud forest, ideal for bird watching and making the excellent Nicaraguan coffee. San Juan del Sur and Corn Island offer both Pacific and Caribbean style beach life, and right in the middle of the country is the laid back and peaceful island of Ometepe.
Highlights: Leon and Granada; Ometepe Island; Masaya and Mombacho Volcanoes; Corn Island and San Juan del Sur
Activities: Tortoise watching; surfing down a volcano; bird watching, horse riding, kayaking, hiking, beach life; snorkeling and diving; community tourism.
Best time to go: Peak time to visit is the dry season from December to March. From then until May, most areas are very hot until the rains come in May. Even during the rainy season, though, mornings are generally dry and activities are generally not disrupted.
Insider tips: Stay overnight on top of Mombacho Volcano or other could forest area and wake up to the sound of howler monkeys.

“Thanks Stephanie for organising the best holiday experience. We were very impressed with how well organised our trip was. We did not have to worry about how to get from Airports or train stations to Hotels, in fact we did not even have to know which hotel we were staying at, all we had to do at each destination was look for a person holding a sign with our name, it was that easy. The guides were all fantastic as were the staff at hotels you selected for us. I had intended to organise the whole trip my self until I stumbled upon some feedback from another traveller who said that their best decision was to let you and your company organise their tour. In our case your price was much lower than had we done our own bookings and we got to see so much more than I had planned. the one time that we organised our own day trip, there were problems with language and the cost changed from over the telephone to presenting at the tour agency and the day was very disappointing and a total waste of time and money. In hindsight, I should have contacted your local agent to organise this day tour as well as I am sure that it would have gone as smoothly as did all the others.
Thanks again, I will certainly recommend you and your company to anyone wishing to travel to Latin America or to any other area that you promote. Best wishes Warren & Renate Lee”
