- One Day Tours
Whether you wish to be greeted at the airport by one of our agents, or picked up at the Costa Rican Border, with Welcome to Nicaragua you are in safe hands from the moment you arrive. We offer private transfers from International Airport Augusto C. Sandino to one of our many three-star hotels in Managua, where you can rest your head in utter comfort and dream of the adventures that await you.
The first of these adventures will take you to the Corn Islands, a spectacular tropical paradise surrounded by turquoise waters and white sandy beaches. A shuttle bus will collect you and take you to the airport, where you’ll fly to Big Corn Island and take in some breath-taking views along the way. Here you will stay at a luxurious beachside hotel, offering the best of Nicaraguan hospitality and Caribbean cuisine. There’s no better place for a night of romantic relaxation by the sea!
You and your loved one will be spoiled for choice with all there is to see and do on Big Corn Island. You might choose to hike to Mount Pleasant Tower, the highest point on the island, and take in the awe-inspiring views, or go snorkelling to the sunken Spanish galleon for a historical underwater excursion. Horseback riding is also a popular way of exploring the island, but for those who wish to take it easy, sampling the famous coco bread from the local bakeries and doing some a spot of shopping might be more your thing. Either way, there’s something to suit everyone on this little slice of heaven.
There’s just as much to enjoy above the water as there is below. Fishing is one activity you’ve simply got to try during your stay, with so many large snapper and reef fish just waiting to be caught! Once you’ve caught your lunch, it might be the perfect time to throw on a snorkel and get exploring the reefs and wrecks that lie under the sea. And if you don’t feel like leaving the shore, you can head to Long Bay Beach, a secluded palm tree-lined beach where you’ll only have the occasional lobster fisherman for company.
No trip to Nicaragua would be complete without a visit to the colonial city of Granada, and we’ve got the most romantic way for you to see it all: a tour for two in a horse drawn carriage! Granada is the perfect city to get lost in. The elegant architecture tells of its colonial heritage and European ties, while the vibrant atmosphere and year-round warm weather make it unmistakably Nicaraguan. Wander through the colourful streets hand-in-hand with your loved one, before stopping for a couples massage at the city’s best spa, Balance by Amos. And to top it all off, we will treat you to dinner in Granada’s best restaurant, courtesy of Welcome to Nicaragua!
It’s time to leave the lively streets of the city and head to place of pristine natural beauty. Frequently referred to as the most stunning site in Nicaragua, the Apoyo Lagoon is a nature reserve with a difference. This magical freshwater lagoon is situated in the crater of a dormant volcano, encircled by trees, foliage and animals. The water is clear and temperate, making it the perfect spot for a relaxing and refreshing swim, yet it’s big enough to allow for water sports without damaging the natural habitat. Be sure to check out some of the restaurants in the vicinity while you’re there, and enjoy a nice cold beer! As your day draws to a close you will be taken on a drive through the mountains to a cosy hotel, where you can enjoy a wonderful view of the lagoon itself, and get ready for the last day of your trip.
A paradise for sunbathers and surfers alike, the Pacific fishing village of San Juan del Sur is one of Nicaragua’ hidden gems. You can choose from a wide variety of activities to fill your day, such as surfing lessons, sailing, horseback riding, a canopy tour or yoga, or you might decide to just catch some rays and chill out on the beach. When the sun sets, that’s when San Juan del Sur really comes alive, as the many beachfront bars and nightclubs open their doors to surfers and locals. Why not party the night away with your significant other, and toast a promise to make every holiday as unforgettable as this one!
