Nicaragua holidays 2022 & 2023

Nicaragua’s history of fiery politics and unstable governments has traditionally kept visitors at arm’s length. Even now that the country has entered a period of peace and relative prosperity, it remains on the periphery of most people’s travel ambitions. Which is good news, say our specialists. It means you can explore its riches (which include volcanoes, island wildernesses, Spanish colonial churches and cloudforest reserves) in peace and quiet. And, you’ll be greeted with warmth and enthusiasm wherever you go.

Your holiday to Nicaragua could see you sampling the city of Granada’s café culture, or volcano boarding down the charred slopes of Cerro Negro. Boat down the Rio San Juan in search of macaws, and stare at the Pacific from the remote beaches of San Juan del Sur. Our specialists can assemble a trip that takes in all of these experiences, and more.

    Volcano Cerro Negro Hike

    Rising out of the green trees the black walls of Cerro Negro create a bizarre contrast with the surroundings. You hike first on trails and later on a kind of black dune created by former lava. As you reach the foot of the volcano you begin an easy climb up to the first of two active and colourful craters.
