Nicaragua's Natural Treasures Holiday

The full variety of Nicaraguan landscapes and wildlife, laced through with easy going interactions which make this such a rewarding country to visit.

Deep blue crater lakes and thick green forests; quiet beaches lapped by the Pacific and volcanic peaks touched by the clouds. Nicaragua is blessed with natural beauty. But this trip earns its stripes by truly introducing you to the wildlife and locals who make their homes here - farmers reforesting the countryside, islanders painting their colourful lives, howler monkeys hollering away in the treetops.
