Holiday ideas for Nicaragua
Travel options in Nicaragua are more limited than in Costa Rica, for example, but you will be well rewarded by the places you visit.
With good flight connections, and a simple road crossing at Peñas Blancas, it is easy to combine Nicaragua and Costa Rica on the same trip.
To help you plan your trip, here is a selection of suggested itineraries which show what's possible. They can all be adapted to fit your dates, preferences and the amount of time you have available.
Contact us to talk through how they might be tailored to suit you best.
Nicaragua holiday choices
The heart of Nicaragua, touching each era from prehistory to the Revolution and the present day, visiting volcanoes, lakes and colonial cities, and with wildlife and scenery along the way.
JUST A WEEK
A week of touring Nicaragua that combines well with a trip to Costa Rica, or with time at the beach.
COSTA RICA AND NICARAGUA OFF THE BEATEN TRACK
A very varied trip between Costa Rica and Nicaragua, mostly completely off the beaten track, with rich wildlife experiences, wonderful scenery, evocative history, and helping to support isolated communities and artists.
The following suggested itineraries show what's possible. Use them unchanged if they suit you, or take them as a basis for your own ideal trip. They can be shortened or lengthened, or adapted to suit you.
If you just want to go to one or two places, then it's simply a question of choosing the hotels you like. We will make reservations and arrange flights and road transport as appropriate.
