Cotinga: Off the beaten track Nicaragua

18 days from £2298pp
 

Group Journey

 
Nicaragua, much loved at Journey Latin America, is one of the few remaining Latin American destinations which can truly be described as unspoilt. Having suffered decades of civil war, geological and economic instability it remained off the tourist trail during the expansion of tourism in the early years of the 21st century. Now shyly opening up to visitors, it’s a country of great understated charm, from its verdant volcanic landscapes to its deserted jungle-fringed beaches; the people are particularly welcoming, the wildlife profuse, and the history and living culture riveting.

This group holiday will be a real adventure: we’ll be travelling by road and by boat across the country, arriving at remote, hard-to-reach destinations where we’ll be flung back in time. We’ll meet back-water rural and riparian communities, discover once wealthy Spanish colonial towns and clamber over a monumental frontier fort. We’ll gasp at the plethora of exotic wildlife on the fringes of Lake Nicaragua, gaze up at the crater of a sizzling volcano, and stroll on the sands of a folksy, English-speaking Caribbean Island. You’ll hardly believe how a country of such variety and richness can be so little-visited.
