Itinerary

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 : the biggest cathedral of the country, the main plaza, and food market.

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

Five out of Five Gerald was one of the best guides we've had the pleasure spending time with. He was knowledgeable about the places he took us and made the effort of showing us some of the local lifestyle in addition to the highlights of the area. He also made the day special for my wife who was celebrating her birthday by arranging Mariachis to come where we had lunch to sing her happy birthday in their native song. Was a great day!
