Explore the biggest colonial city in Nicaragua!!

Leon was founded in 1610 by the Spaniard next to the
Sutiava indigenous settlement. At just 20 miles from the pacific ocean where pirates took advantage and invade the city and destroyed. Next to the chain of Volcano Maribios , Leon has flat fertile soil for agriculture. The first capital of Nicaragua until Managua became the capital because of the dispute between the other colonial city of Granada in the late 1800s. Ruben Dario who was the most popular and famous poet in Nicaragua was raise and buried inside of the cathedral on the right pilar of the main alter.


Our tour start at the Port Of Corinto in the Pacific of Nicaragua, the only commercial port of the Country. The town is relative small and there is not much to do there, so we will drive to the Colonial City of Leon which is 1 hour and 20 min. drive and on the way we will see sugar cane plantations, cattle ranch, small food vendor of fried fish and the popular Conchas Negras.

Once we enter the colonial city of Leon, we will visit the following sights like, the biggest cathedral of the country, the main plaza, Ortis Gurdian Art Gallery and have a local lunch.

After we will drive back to Corinto and just before we will make a detour to San Jacinto Bubbling Mud park and see micro volcanic crater spilling mud and suffer.

Now we are ready to get back to the ship.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a great way to see the country. We made an unplanned stop at a papaya stand and ended up getting a tour of the orchard with description of the farming methods from the owner. Gerald was very accommodating as to our interests and provided very interesting conversation about recent history and current issues. Because it was just the 6 of us we got a much better understanding of the area than the cruise sponsored excursions.
