If you are interested in our northern neighbor’s then a Nicaragua day tour will be right up your alley. Tour guides will pick you up in the early morning and take you across the border at Peñas Blancas, Costa Rica and Nicaragua’s only land crossing. The road to Peñas Blancas from Playa Grande is a little over 150km. Noted as a scenic country with a rich culture and history, Nicaragua offers travelers a unique contrast to Costa Rica.
Once across, you will want to travel on to the town of Massey, famous for their artisan market, then onto the Volcano Massey to peer down into its fuming crater. Next on the stop is Granada, known as one of the first cities to be founded by Europeans within the Americas. Described as a colorful, lively place, Granada was built with Spanish colonial architecture that remains in place today. Take a scenic tour of Granada by horse-drawn carriage and visit city favorites such as Plaza de Espana with wonderful views of Lake Nicaragua. Take a look within local museums, shop quaint storefronts, enjoy local cuisine and more!
A Nicaragua day tour can be booked through your local hotel, concierge, or tour company.
