Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

Day 1 - Join trip in Managua

Arrive in Managua, known for its volcano and lakes which surround the city and its lively markets.

Due to the number of evening flights into Managua, your Tour Leader plans to do the welcome meeting on the morning on Day 2 and will leave a message in reception with details on timings and everything else that you'll need for the day. There are no other activities planned today, so you are free to arrive in Managua at any time. If you would like to receive a complimentary airport shuttle transfer today, you'll need to arrive into Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (MGA), which is opposite our hotel, around 2 minutes' drive.

If your flight arrives earlier in the day, perhaps you might choose to book a Managua city tour. This fascinating city tour around Nicaragua's enigmatic capital begins with a visit to the Tiscapa Crater Lake, where you can take in the superb view over the surprisingly green city. The tour continues to the old city where you will visit the national museum and discover some of the classic early buildings that survived the massive earthquake in 1972. Then, the trip will lead you through the colourful and authentic Roberto Huembes market. After which the tour winds up at the city's lakefront, a perfect place for a refreshing beverage and a walk.

Day 2 - Drive to Leon via the Reserve Juan Venado; afternoon boat tour

Leaving Managua behind, we head first to Mirador Tiscapa, which overlooks a volcanic crater lake that is more than 10,000 years old. Before the revolution, the hill was home to the old presidential palace and it provides some superb views down across the city. We follow the Pacific coast to our lunch stop and continue on to the Natural Reserve Isla Juan Venado, located just to the south of the golden beaches of Las Peñitas. A boat trip takes us out to the island reserve, a haven for caymans, iguanas, crocodiles and birds. It is also a favoured nesting area for the Olive Ridley sea turtles, which come here between August and December each year to lay their eggs. We drive in the afternoon to the old colonial capital of Leon, which lies in the shadow of the Cordillera de los Maribios Mountains.

Day 3 - Morning climb on an active volcano, visit San Jacinto volcanic fumaroles.

After breakfast this morning we climb the youngest volcano in Central America, the basal-tic cinder cone of Cerro Negro (Black Hill). Occupying part of the Cordillera de los Maribios mountain range to the east of the city, it rises to a height of 728 metres. We climb its gravelly slopes to the summit allowing views of the stunning panoramas across the surrounding landscapes. On the descent you can run, jump or roll down the sandy ash!

Returning to León there will then be time for a short siesta, before visiting the volcanic fumaroles at San Jacinto known for its boiling mud pools, brightly coloured mineral pools and dramatic steam vents. On our way back to Leon we make a visit to CIMAC - an educational park dedicated to reforestation work in the colonial city of Leon and beyond. A trail has been constructed at the center which allows visitors to experience the four ecosystems of Nicaragua. We start by crossing through a tropical dry forest, moving to a tropical rain forest, a riverbed forest and finally a savannah forest.

Day 4 - Morning city tour of the colonial city of Leon. Drive to Playa El Astillero, free afternoon on the beach.

We will start this morning with a tour of the colonial city of Leon. Still considered the intellectual centre of Nicaragua, the old buildings, with their wrought iron balconies and the arched colonnades along with narrow streets, all give the city a certain elegant serenity that seems to been frozen in time. The city's huge cathedral is believed to be the largest in Central America and a climb up to its roof affords some spectacular views across the city and out towards the volcanoes in the distance. We also visit the entertaining and illuminating Museum of Legends and Traditions located in a once infamous prison, today the cells are occupied with mannequins that illustrate some 14 different myths and legends.

After this we will continue to Playa El Astillero. Arriving around midday we check into our lodge, after which the rest of the afternoon is free.

We head inland this morning towards the expansive shores of Lake Nicaragua and the island of Ometepe. We drive to the town of Rivas for lunch, we then continue the short distance to San Jorge, where we take the ferry across to the island. Ometepe is made up of two volcanoes connected by an isthmus - its name comes from the Nahuati language and means 'two hills'. The perfect cone of the Concepción volcano soars from the depths of Lake Nicaragua to 1610m, only just dwarfing the neighbouring Maderas volcano at 1394m. On arrival to the island we transfer to Charco Verde for the next two nights. We take the time to stop off at some famous pre-Colombian petroglyphs that were left behind by the island's previous inhabitants countless centuries ago.

Day 8 - Drive to Granada via the Mombacho Volcano and a canopy tour on zip-wire

Heading back to the ferry port on the outskirts of San Jose del Sur, we cross back to the mainland this morning, from where we drive to the Mombacho Volcano, one of the most distinctive landmarks anywhere in the country. We drive to the top, snaking our way up a steep slope and past fields of coffee plants as we make our way up in to the cloud forest. The views from up here can be spectacular and we might even catch a glimpse of Granada and Las Isletas far below. After learning something about the unique flora and fauna of the cloud forest you have a chance to glide through the lush forest on a canopy tour, zipping through the trees on a wire harness as the base of the volcanic craters. After this adrenaline filled adventure we then journey north, towards the lovely city of Granada.

Day 9 - Discover Granada, visiting the lively market at Masaya

Atmospheric Granada is a colonial gem, situated at the foot of Mombacho volcano on the north-west shore of Lake Nicaragua. Founded in 1524, it was the first colonial city in Nicaragua and its magnificent setting, set off by baroque and renaissance buildings, is a pure visual delight.

We plan a city tour on foot this morning, visiting some of the city's most beautiful colonial buildings and learning more of its fascinating history. Granada is the perfect city to explore on foot, wandering the narrow lanes and alleyways and discovering its hidden delights amongst the lush greenery and historic buildings. After lunch we visit the popular Masaya market, a major centre for arts and crafts, where you can throw yourself into the hustle and bustle and barter from everything from baskets and pottery to jewellery and leather work. Later we visit the tranquil setting of the Masaya Volcano National Park, where you can peer into the bowels of this smoking, belching giant before returning to Granada for our second evening.

Day 10 - Cycle to Cabana Amarilla, kayak around Las Isletas, visit a chocolate factory and make your own chocolate bar

Cabana Amarilla lies just 6 kilometres from Granada, making it an ideal destination this morning to head to on bikes. From here we take to the waters of Lake Nicaragua in kayaks, spending the morning paddling through some of the myriad of islands and inlets that pepper this coastline. Beautifully lush, these 365 tropical islets that occupy this vast expanse of water are a magnet for the local birdlife and we'll have time to linger and enjoy this most tranquil of settings before taking lunch on one of the islands.

On our return to Granada we will visit the Chocolate Museum in Granada where we can see some of the famous cacao beans being turned into a range of organic chocolate. The Museum is located in a wonderful 5-patio mansion in the historic centre.

Explore leader
Tipping isn't compulsory, and we work hard to ensure that our leaders all receive a fair wage. However, you might want to recognise a leader that's done a great job or really added to your trip by giving them a tip. We're often asked about the recommended amount. It's a tricky one, and down to personal preference, but we'd recommend between £15 to £20 per person per week as a guideline
Local crew
Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognized part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. In order to make things easier for you, your leader may organise a group's tips kitty for included activities and meals and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour.

Accordingly, you should allow US$ 30, approx. 980 Cordoba's per family member.

For all non-included services and meals on your trip please tip independently at your discretion.
