Granada and Leon jostle for position as the most important colonial town in the country. Granada so far has captured most of the attention, but Leon, with its lively cultural vibe and impressive churches, has its fair share of enthusiasts.
For those seeking adventures on the Pacific, San Juan del Sur is the main draw and gateway to a series of beautiful beaches north and south. Each of these three towns make a comfortable base for exploring nearby attractions. There’s lots to see so we’ve designed a series of tours and day-trips to ensure that you get to experience Nicaragua as an insider does.
Choose the colonial town of Granada; as a base to explore the beautiful natural scenery of the area, go on a boat ride and canopy tour and shop at nearby craft markets. In Leon; you’ll get up-close and personal with Nicaragua’s rich history and, for an adrenaline rush, try volcano boarding down a volcano. And San Juan del Sur’s sheltered anchorage hemmed in by two beautiful headlands makes the perfect starting off point for our surf tours and sailing charters. We’ll also get you immersed in the day-to-day rhythm of life in this charming fishing village.
