Stress-free arrival in Nicaragua
The last thing you want once you've got off a long international flight is more travel, right? Well, don't fret too much: Nicaragua's got it covered. Your hotel's right across from Managua Airport, and is packed with all the luxurious amenities you could wish for. You're welcome!
The real coffee experience
Today, you'll go right to the heart of coffee, as you head up into the mountains up north to tour a Selva Negra plantation amidst a cloud forest's mist. This is a coffee experience on a whole other level, as is your hotel for the night here.
A Black Forest Birdwatch
Venture deep into the Black Forest today, and be rewarded with a spectacular display of birds of all different kinds of feathers on your Selva Negra bird watch tour. Make sure you've got plenty of room on your memory stick, because your camera's bound to get a workout today.

Hike right into a crater
Dig deeply into your sumptuous breakfast, as you'll need the energy for the big day you're about to have. First up, you'll be walking through a glorious cloud forest chock-full of flora and fauna, right up into the crater of the Mombacho volcano. Here, not only will you be inside a crater, but you'll also have some fairly amazing views of Lake Nicaragua, Laguna de Apoyo, not to mention the city of Granada itself.
It's funny that Lake Nicaragua was just mentioned, as this is where you'll be heading next. Ometepe Island, itself formed from two volcanoes, is a beautiful destination at the heart of the lake, and is also your destination this afternoon.
Kayaking down the beautiful Istiam river
After you've woken up in your comfy hotel at the foot of its volcano, it'll be time to put your best foot forward for today's adventure. Today, you'll be kayaking down-river; and, as you do so, you'll be treated to glimpses of an endless variety of tropical birds, reptiles and monkeys. The panoramic views of Ometepe's spectacular volcanoes aren't half bad, either, come to mention it.
Granada Horse and Carriage Tour
The views afforded by Ometepe are certainly sublime, and today is your last chance to make the most of them. Snap up your last photos, because then it's off to the colonial charms of Granada. Charm is what today is all about, and to emphasise this fact, you'll be clip-clopping in a horse-drawn carriage around the city before you know it.
A day of leisure for the win
Today is a day just for you, to do whatever you want. Just stroll around the city's streets, or else get out of town to lap up the more natural beauty of the nearby islands. Either way, you're certain to win.
Off back home
Well, time flies when you're having an amazing Nicaraguan holiday, and, before you know it, it's over! You've had a fabulous trip, and all that remains now is to get chauffeured to the airport, hop on your plane, and get ready to tell everyone back home about it.
