Overview

Our custom and small group tours are perfect for travelers seeking natural beauty, a cultural experience, and adventure. You’ll meet people who live, work, and play in the places we visit. We'll visit their homes and communities. You'll learn about Nicaragua from the inside out, through the voices of its people, its complex history, and rich culture. In addition to our organic style of travel, we contribute to community-based, locally-run organizations working towards a better future for all Nicaraguans. This commitment allows us to develop long-term relationships in Nicaragua and engage our travelers in socially responsible travel.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our day touring Granada and surrounding areas with Jessica. It was also insightful to learn about her experiences and perspective as an American who fell in love with Nicaragua and has adopted the country as her own.
