Day one. Flight to Managua and a 40 minute drive to the colonial city of Granada. We will be staying her for four nights.
Day two. Short drive to the city of Mayasa. There we will have several activities. We will visit the fortress of Coyotepe. Once a military outpost for US marines. It was later turned into a prison by the Samoza dictatorship. Many political prisoners were held here before the Sandinista revolution. Lunch in a market and a few minutes for shopping. Visit a dormant volcano which is filled with fresh water. A beautiful view over looking the countryside. We will stop by a ceramic school/factory. We will observe how the pottery is made and have a chance to see the finished projects. Evening visit to an active Volcano. Short time to view the bubbling lava in the crater below.
Day three. Drive to the volcano Mombacho. A thrilling ride up to the top of the volcano in old converted army trucks. Short hike to over look the valley below. We have seen monkeys and sloths along the way. After our hike an opportunity to try the zipline at the base of the volcano. Later a visit to the many islets of lake Nicaragua. Small boats give a close up view of the many islands with a variety of birds.
Day four. Walking tour of the colonial city of Granada. Later an opportunity to visit a local orphanage. We have helped them in the past with school supplies, uniforms, hygiene kits, backpacks and other items. You will love to see the smiling faces of the young girls which call this their home. We will try to find out how we can help them before we do. One of the highlights of the tour.
Day five. Leave for Managua and enjoy a city tour. Including revolutionary square. Site of many of the events of the revolution in 1979. Catch a plane to Corn Island. We will be there for the next four nights. Short taxi ride to the hotel.
Day six. A day to explore this beautiful Island. Golf carts and scooters are for rent. Taxis can take you any where on the island for a small price. Many beaches to visit as well as snorkeling, diving, and fishing excursions are available. The hotel has a nice pool which is a great way to end a day. Several restaurants in the area offer very affordable seafood as well as other dishes. English is the official language of the Corn Islands. It was once a British colony.
Day seven. A 30 minute boat ride to Little Corn Island. A beautiful small island with crystal clear water. Many beaches and small restaurants. Nothing better than lunch on the beach.
