Duration: Full day
Description: Nicaragua is a beautiful country owner of a very rich culture and a history full of proud despite difficult memories. Our journey to our northern neighbor starts very early in the morning to avoid lines on the border. On the other side we will stop for a delicious breakfast near of Rivas city. We continue our way to Granada city, one of the first founded cities in America by Europeans, a colorful place, built on Spanish colonial architecture that nowadays still remains. At Granada we visit the most important monuments of the city on a horse-drawn carriage, like Spanish used to do it 200 years ago; we will see the main church known as the “Catedral”, “The Plaza de España” which is one of the best view points for the magnificent Nicaragua Lake and many others; we take lunch on a nice restaurant with a historical view.
After lunch we drive towards to Masaya City, a very typical Nicaraguan Town and we visit the active Masaya Volcano and the National park, a natural attraction that we cannot miss on our trip; we finish our stay at Masaya with a visit to the local market when you will have the chance to see the local pottery and pick up a souvenir. We get back to Costa Rica to drop you off at your hotel on the evening.
