Nicaragua One Day Tour

Liberia

Nicaragua, Costa Rica’s northern neighbor, is extremely close to Guanacaste. A beautiful country with a rich culture and full history, Nicaragua offers travelers a unique contrast to Costa Rica.

This journey begins early in the morning to avoid lines while crossing the border. Be advised, all tour participants need to have both their passport and cash on hand to cross the border. The crossing fee is $7.

Once across, you’ll enjoy a delicious breakfast near the city of Rivas. You’ll continue on until you reach Granada, one of the first cities founded by Europeans in America. A colorful, vibrant place, Granada was built with Spanish colonial architecture that remains in place today.

In Granada, a horse-drawn carriage will take you to the city’s most notable attractions. You’ll visit the main church – known simply as “Catedral” – and the Plaza de España, where you can take in magnificent views of Lake Nicaragua. Nearby, you’ll have lunch at a nice restaurant with great views.

After lunch, you will board the bus and drive to a viewpoint of Lake Masaya. This exceptional location allows you to take in stunning views of both the lake and the active Masaya Volcano. The tour wraps up with a visit to Masaya, a local town with an excellent pottery and souvenir market.

Following this stop, you’ll return to Costa Rica and will be dropped off at your hotel.
