A 6 day wellness tour in Central America's hidden gem.

Unknown to many travelers, Nicaragua is the largest nation in Central America but, despite recent growth, is still one of the least visited. Brilliantly colored, Caribbean inspired colonial architecture paintbrush the country, and landscape of volcanoes, lakes, mountains and vast swathes of rainforest rival those of better-known Costa Rica. Perhaps because of this, many travelers say that Nicaragua is their favourite country on the isthmus. On this 6 day wellness tour, you will visit the oldest city in Latin America, take a boat ride on Latin America’s second largest lake, and rejuvenate on some of the country’s best beaches. You will also give back by spending a day volunteering with children living in Granada’s outskirts.
