Granada City Tour + Isletas Boat Tour

One of the most impressive colonial cities in Nicaragua, with its charming pastel streets, Granada is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places to visit in Nicaragua. It is the oldest city on the mainland that still remains on the same place where it was originally built, it had some difficulties with pirates and civil wars but arose from the ashes to be as imposing as it is today.

Lake Nicaragua is dotted with jungle-clad islands. The biggest is the twin-volcano Isla de Ometepe. But off the lake shore from Granada lie a few hundred smaller islands — some of the most beautiful places to visit in Granada. This is an archipelago of around 360 small volcanic islands that today wonderfully dot the shores of Lake Nicaragua. Las “Isletas” is a place located just 10 minutes from the Colonial City of Granada.

Our day will begin today at 8:00 in the morning, our guide, a specialist in the history of Nicaragua, will pick you up at your hotel and together you will walk to the heart of the city of Granada to visit its most emblematic buildings such as churches, which includes the cathedral and church of La Merced where we will climb the tower to appreciate the city from above; We will also visit the beautiful and classic Granada cemetery where we will learn a little more about the history of this city, the old hospital, now in ruins, and the railway station. We will finish this city tour in the municipal market of Granada to learn a little about the city’s commerce and there we will try the delicious typical Granada dish called “vigorón”. After tasting vigorón, you will be transported back to your hotel and at 4:00 pm, you will be picked up and brought to a Marina located just 10 minutes away from Granada and there, you will do the sunset boat tour.

on a private boat is impressive, the large number of birds that can be seen, the flora and fauna in general, plus the panoramic views along with the amazing sunset are some unique things that you will enjoy in this tour. On the tour you will learn the geological process by which these small islands were formed, or at least, the two theories that are believed are the reasons for the formation of the archipelago. You will also learn about the life of the locals, how they live, what activities they practice, the educational system of local children and much more of the culture of these families

DAY 7

Today we will wake up very early, have breakfast and then at 8:00 a.m. sharp we will take our ground transportation to go to the community of Charco Muerto.

It will take us about an hour and 30 minutes to get to the shores of Lake Nicaragua where this community is located. There, our local friends, farmers and producers will be waiting for us with horses to start our adventure. On horses we go to the heart of a dry tropical forest that is loaded with many animals like birds, monkeys, iguanas, snakes etc. We will reach the top of a mountain where we will have a spectacular view of the archipelago Zapatera Island, Lake Nicaragua, Ometepe Island and Manares River.

Once we arrive at the community, we will bathe for a while and we will be served a typical lunch made of rice, beans, plantains, tortillas; all this accompanied with cheese, sour cream and eggs. After this light lunch, we will rest a little, we will have the opportunity to swim in the fresh and clean waters of Lake Cocibolca.

When each person is sleepy, they can go to sleep in the campsite that we will have near where we will have the bonfire. 

DAY 8

Pottery Town + Katharina Lookout + Apoyo Lagoon + Masaya Volcano

Our day will start at 9:00 a.m. after breakfast. At this time we will be picked up from our hotel and drive approximately 30 minutes to the indigenous village of San Juan de Oriente. This small town, of about 7 thousand inhabitants, is composed mostly of artisans who are dedicated to making clay pieces, working the clay the way our ancestors used to do it. In this town, we will visit a local family’s pottery workshop, and an indigenous man will explain step by step how they and 95% of the inhabitants of this town are dedicated to working with clay. At the end of this exhibition, you will be able to fill your hands with clay and try to make your own piece.

Once we are done with the ceramic exposure, we will drive only 10 minutes to the imposing Katarina viewpoint. This is a picturesque village that has a viewpoint from where you can see Lake Nicaragua, Isletas de Granada, Mombacho Volcano and the always beautiful Laguna de Apoyo.

After the viewpoint where we will spend around 20 minutes, we will drive half an hour to the cool and refreshing Laguna de Apoyo where we will be from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm. Apoyo was once a volcano which eruption, more than 22 thousand years ago left a gigantic crater that was later filled by rainwater and today represents the largest crater lake in Central America. The water of this lagoon is rich in volcanic components such as sulphur dioxide, magnesium, potassium, sodium etc. By swimming here, you will not only refresh yourself but also give your skin a chance to rejuvenate and your muscular and nervous pains will decrease drastically due to the aforementioned components.

At 3:30 pm, we will drive from Apoyo Lagoon to Masaya Volcano National Park for just 50 minutes. The night tour starts at 4:30 pm, but we need to be at the park a bit earlier to be able to see the beautiful sunset.

Once we arrive at the main entrance of the Masaya Volcano National Park, we obtain our tickets and drive about 6 kilometers to the Santiago active crater parking area; it will still be daytime here, so we’ll walk about 20 minutes to the different viewpoints to admire the different beauties that this park has to offer.

Arriving before sunset is perfect. First, we will walk to the top of the Masaya Volcano, throughout the entire journey, from the beginning to the end, our certified and experienced tour guide will explain everything related to this park; its formation and eruptive history, geology, flora, fauna and tourist importance of this park, in addition to the events that have occurred here over the years.

Once on the edge of the San Fernando and San Juan craters, we will obtain one of the most dazzling views of Central America, with also the most astronomical sunset in the region. From here we will contemplate, in addition to the geological ring called “El Ventarrón” in which the 54 square kilometers of the Masaya Volcano National Park rest; we will enjoy the volcanoes: Mombacho, Masaya, Nindirí, Momotombo, Momotombito (this last one if Managua City is not foggy), the Masaya Lagoon, the Xolotlán Lake in Managua and Cocibolca Lake in Granada, the cities of: Managua (capital of Nicaragua), Masaya and Granada and if all this were not enough; get ready to admire the most exuberant sunset (if it’s not raining) of this Land of Lakes and Volcanoes. Here, the sun’s rays play with the steam that comes out of the Santiago crater, this mixture of sun rays and volcanic gasses form a spectacular phenomenon that is admired every year by thousands of tourists from all over the world.

Once the sun is gone, we walk back to the active crater of Santiago, to observe a gigantic and divine lava lake at the bottom of it. We will be at this area for 10 to 30 minutes so that you can take the photos you want and record this tour in your memory as one of the best trips you have ever had. After this, we will drive back to Granada.

DAY 9

Transfer to Leon + Cathedral Tour + SandBoarding at Cerro Negro Volcano

After breakfast, today we will leave for the city of León, which is two hours and 30 minutes from Granada. Arriving in Leon, we will have the tour of the largest Cathedral in Central America.

The Cathedral of León

is without a doubt a religious, but also an architectural and historical monument. Construction began in the 1700s and it took more than 100 years and several generations of indigenous people to complete its construction. By taking the tour of the Cathedral, we will learn not only about the church as such, but also about many aspects that represent and are the essence of the people of the city of Leon. On this tour we will visit the roof of the church to admire the city from above but also the volcanoes of the Los Maribios mountain range. In addition, we will visit the middle and basement of the church and learn about the symbolism that decorates the interior of this building. After this tour, we will go to the hotel to check in and then to a local restaurant for lunch before heading to our Cerro Negro Volcano tour.

Cerro Negro Volcano

The first eruption in a valley located about 25 kilometers (15 miles) from the colonial city of León took place on April 13, 1850. Yes, ladies and gentlemen! That was the baby Cerro Negro Volcano which by first time, ejected huge quantities of molten material which irregularly headed in all directions that day until April 22nd when it had the last eruption of this first facet. The Cerro Negro Volcano is now days one of the best-known attractions for practicing adventure in Nicaragua. From the first time it erupted to these current days, it has had 21 facets (eruptive periods) which usually last several days in which dozens of eruptions have taken place, reaching an altitude of 728 (almost 2400 feet) so far. This is the youngest in Central America and one of the most active in the region as well. This cinder-cone volcano is formed by ash and black sand, hence its name. Its eruptions are generally expulsions of pyroclastic fragments, ash and lava and its last eruption was in 1999. Its young age and constant activity make the growth of trees and plants impossible on the fallen black skirts of the hill, because of this, it will be almost most of the time very windy when walking to the top. Some parts of this volcano are covered by huge rocks and others by fine sand. We will walk up around it, using a trail full of loosen rocks and slide down on the sandy area.

The Tour

Today after lunch, at 2:00pm, you will be picked up in your hotel and driven to the base of the volcano. This one-hour drive in a sandy and bumpy road, using a 4×4 truck to Cerro Negro will be very fun. The road to the Cerro Negro Volcano Natural Reserve is rough and hostile, the vast majority of it is covered by a floor of quicksand that has been expelled by the volcano in the many eruptions it has had in the past. On the way to the base of the volcano we will find local communities, plantations of different products such as cassava, bananas, fruit trees, beans, etc. and very often, on that narrow one-way road, we will find ox carts full with firewood and people working on the roadside as well. 

Once at the base of the volcano, it is time to start our hike, it will take us an hour to climb up and we will not do it without first having our difficulties with the loose rocks, the strong wind and the heat, but in the end, all of this is part of the exquisite adventure that this volcano offers, like the compelling views of the surroundings as we ascend.

Once we have reached to the top of the great Cerro Negro, we will take our time to walk and enjoy the beautiful view that will show us the Maribios volcanic mountain range that contains the highest volcanoes in Nicaragua aligned almost perfectly in the country’s Pacific Coast. All of this while we wait for the beautiful sunset on top of the volcano which will be one of the best sunsets you have ever seen. Walking for some minutes, we will soon reach areas where the temperature of the volcano’s sand is so high that one can easily imagine the volcanic activity that is taking place under our feet and it can help us understand how active this volcano is. Then, we prepared to descend. For this, we have to dress in our special suits that cover us from head to toe, we will wear gloves and goggles; Once dressed, our experienced guide will show us how to manage the board to slide on the hill. The climb takes an hour or more, but sliding down takes less than 10 minutes; here you could reach speeds of up to 60 kilometers per hour, if you like adrenaline; Although we must say that, the speed can be controlled by yourself.

After finishing this adventure, you will head back to your hotel to have a shower and get cleaned from the black ash of the volcano and go to a restaurant for a delicious dinner.

DAY 10

Transfer to Potosí Port + Boat to La Union El Salvador + Transfer to Playa El Tunco

We will wake up very early today, we are going to have a packed breakfast and leave at 6:00 a.m. for the Port of Potosi on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. There, after the immigration process, we will take a boat that in around two hours, it will take us to the Department of La Union in El Salvador. A land transportation will pick us up there and take us to El Cuco Beach where we will spend the rest of the day, relaxing and resting.

DAY 11

Free Day in El Tunco Beach

After a few days with many tours, today is a day of relaxation on this beautiful beach. Breakfast is included at the hotel.

DAY 12

Transfer to Antigua Guatemala + City Tour Antigua

Today we will also depart very early from Playa El Cuco to Antigua, Guatemala. The transportation will pick us up at 4:00 in the morning. The idea of traveling early is to be able to get to the city with enough time to enjoy it. In fact, at 3:00 in the afternoon we have a city tour of Antigua, Guatemala.

Built 1,500 meters above sea level in an earthquake-prone region and it was the capital of the Captaincy-General of Guatemala, this city was founded in 1524 as Santiago de Guatemala. It was subsequently destroyed by fire caused by an uprising of the indigenous population, re-established in 1527 and entirely buried because of earthquakes and an avalanche in 1541. The third location, in the Valley of Panchoy or Pacán, was inaugurated in March 1543 and served for 230 years. It survived natural disasters of floods, volcanic eruptions and other serious tremors until 1773 when the Santa Marta earthquakes destroyed much of the town. At this point, authorities ordered the relocation of the capital to a safer location, which became Guatemala City, the county’s modern capital.

The Tour: In our city tour of Antigua, Guatemala, we are going to visit the most prominent buildings that still remain here and we will learn a lot not only about its history but also about the Spanish arrival to this region.

DAY 13

Overnight Tour to Tikal from Antigua

In the heart of the jungle, surrounded by lush vegetation, lies one of the major sites of Mayan civilization, inhabited from the 6th century B.C. to the 10th century A.D. The ceremonial Centre contains superb temples and palaces, and public squares accessed by means of ramps. Remains of dwellings are scattered throughout the surrounding countryside.
Tikal National Park is located in Northern Guatemala’s Petén Province within a large forest region often referred to as the Maya Forest, which extends into neighboring Mexico and Belize. Embedded within the much larger Maya Biosphere Reserve, exceeding two million hectares and contiguous with additional conservation areas, Tikal National Park is one of the few World Heritage properties inscribed according to both natural and cultural criteria for its extraordinary biodiversity and archaeological importance.
The Tour: Today we will leave very early, at 3:15 a.m. from Antigua to Guatemala City, we will arrive in Guatemala City around 4 p.m. and leave on the 5:45 a.m. flight from Guatemala City to arrive in the province of Petén a little before 7 a.m. We will then take the 5:45 a.m. flight from Antigua to Guatemala City. Upon arrival, we will have breakfast and then go on a tour to Tikal National Park. In Tikal, we will do a morning tour, then we will have lunch, and then, from the top of a pyramid, we will watch the sunset on our afternoon tour. That night we will sleep in Tikal.

DAY 14

Flight to Guatemala City + Santa Teresita Spa Thermal + Massage & Relaxation

Upon our arrival in Guatemala City coming from Tikal, we will be picked up to be transported for just some minutes to the ideal place to enjoy our last day in the thermal water pools, relax in the Thermal Saunas, enjoy a Relaxing Massage and a Thermal Circuit, escape from tiredness in a Sustainable Hotel where besides tasting the exquisite dishes in its Restaurant, we will spend the night in an environment full of tranquility.

DAY 15

Back home

In the morning, after breakfast, we will have to say goodbye to this wonderful region located in the heart of America. We hope you have enjoyed your adventure with us and expect to see you again.

Simple the Best in Nicaragua don't know what to start. Mario loves his job more then most tour operations go, we first made reservations with him through WhatsApp about seeing the Islatas In Granada Nicaragua, It was perfect It was a little bit more expensive than the rest of their tour guides that are on the streets but he promised us a private tour any picked us up from the airport on time and gave us a beautiful Sunsets, I was a little apprehensive over giving him a deposit but his Google reviews were good and it was only $20 deposit. After that he did not push us to use him but we decided to use him to go to Mobacho volcano and do the Puma, after reading lots of reviews on how to do it we decided with Mario and his team. Honestly there was no shenanigans he picked us up from a hotel there was no waiting around to take a 4x4 vehicle the guide over there spoke perfect English and then his driver waited for us to be picked up It was fantastic compared to other people issues trying to save a little bit of money. He also gave as a right to the airport pretty late at night with his driver. Don't hesitate to use him and services for all your tour needs and Nicaragua and Costa Rica. Thank you again. Very polite all the transportation cars what clean and communicated very well. Thank you Mario and Gusto

Fantastic service!!!! I cannot say enough positive things about Mario and his company. They treated me and my group extremely well, far beyond the call of duty. If you are looking for a very knowledgeable tour guide and one with excellent connections I highly recommend them. Also, if you happen to get Maynor as a guide suggest you ask him to sing, he has literally an award-winning voice.

Amazing and Memorable Experience with Mario Romero and Golden Tours Nicaragua! Mario Romero of Golden Tours Nicaragua surpassed every expectation as a provider of group transportation, excursions, and as a tour guide and person. To begin with, Mario’s oral and written English and Spanish are superb. From his very first, detailed, descriptive, and thorough introductory summary-of-services email, our correspondence was professional, timely, and clear, enabling one of the smoothest "business" transactions I’ve ever enjoyed, covering logistics and pricing, but also littered with helpful tips and suggestions for me to hone my tour. A bit of context, I’m a Canadian musician and tour leader who ran a 2-week musical excursion for a group of 25 middle-aged choir singer “gringos” from Canada in February 2024. I’d been to Nicaragua before to plan the tour, and so I knew my way around, although I don’t speak Spanish. I needed support running my tour on a variety of fronts; little did I know that by engaging Golden Tours, I’d have most of them covered. Mario Romero responded to a query I’d posted on Facebook looking for recommendations for a bus company to get my group from the airport to our destination. I sent him a quick message outlining my needs, which he responded to promptly and professionally, as mentioned above. Not knowing him, I wrote a few more exploratory emails to feel out the collaboration. He answered all questions promptly and thoroughly, had great prices and services, and it was quickly apparent that he could offer much more to my tour than mere group transportation. And so I engaged him, a decision I have never been more happy with in my life. At that point, Mario helped me settle on the best dates and times for group movements and excursions, working around other facets of the itinerary and helping to bring focus and optimal sequencing among a diverse array of activities. As the collaboration progressed, Mario continuously adapted plans to best fit my group’s needs as he better understood their age and interests. In the end, Mario Romero and Golden Tours coordinated all of my group travel needs, first from the airport in Liberia across the border into Nicaragua, and then from San Juan Del Sur to Granada, to the Masaya Volcano, to Ometepe Island, to beaches, and other destinations. All of this unfolded perfectly and with great adaptability, for example, adapting to the fact that the group had multiple lodging designations to shuttle between. Mario also coordinated the bulk of my group’s excursions, which was enormously helpful since he made all the necessary calls and reservations, handled payment matters with venues, and dealt with small issues that arose directly with venue staff on my group’s behalf. Yes, that’s merely what the job entails, but he carried this out perfectly, never allowing an opportunity for misunderstanding to slow things down. In this capacity, he additionally served my group as translator, tour guide, historian, botanist, sociologist, and philosopher. I do not exaggerate. He even supported our choir by acting as MC and verbally introducing musical selections we sang in our three evening - and very much outside of business hour - concerts, a role I could never in my wildest dreams imagine that our “transport guy” would be able to fill. Mario was liked and respected by every member of my group, a response he earned by simply being an amazing human. At the end of the tour, having discovered Mario’s passion for music and his desire to learn to play, we gave him the group’s electric piano, as a parting gift and partial gesture of thanks. I will definitely be back to Nicaragua to work with Mario and all the guys from Golden Tours Nicaragua - drivers Justo Cárcamo, Marvin Calderón, and tour guide, Maynor Ríos, who led an unforgettable spontaneously-organized early-morning bird-watching tour along the shores of Lake Nicaragua. Thank you, Golden Tours Nicaragua!

More than a tour guide! Mario provided lots of support to our musical ensemble during our visit to San Juan del Sur and Granada and shared his knowledge of Nicaragua, volcanos, birds and more. He attended all of our concerts and provided introductions to our repertoire in Spanish. Going beyond the role of a tour guide. Gracias!

Family tour with Mario Our family had a wonderful tour with Mario. He showed us around Granada and we had the best sunset experience at Masaya Volcano park. We got there early to see the sunset while most tours only came at night. Transportation to Ometepe and all the way to our resort in Costa Rica. He even set us up for transfer to Liberia airport. Always on time and professional. Highly recommend for peace of mind.

Best tourguide ever! Mario was our tourguide for 10 amazing days in Nicaragua. He showed us amazing places: El Castillo, Indio Maiz, Los Gatuzos, Solentiname, Granada and all the volcanoes in the area. Communication is excellent, his English is impeccable and his enthusiasm is the icing on the cake. Everything was super easy and smooth, he took us to places we would never have found on our own, places we would never have dreamt of going if it weren't for him. His love for nature, wildlife and people is contagious. His knowledge of the history and the culture of Nicaragua is vast and being around him is fun. While we were exploring and having the time of our lives, he was clearly enjoying the experience as well - which is awesome. Tip - if you can - visit Charko Muerto - you'll get a taste and feel of what the real Nicaragua is like that you cannot find anywhere else!
