Highlights of Nicaragua

9 Days / 8 Nights

Package Overview

This nine day trip combines some of Nicaragua´s top destinations: the majestic colonial cities of León and Granada and the island of Ometepe, whose beauty was admired by the great writer Mark Twain: "Out of the midst of the beautiful Lake Nicaragua spring two magnificent pyramids, clad in the softest and richest green, all flecked with shadow and sunshine, whose summits pierce the billowy clouds. They look so isolated from the world and its turmoil, so tranquil, so dreamy, so steeped in slumber and eternal repose."
