Attraction details
Owner description: Hokano Adventures is a grassroots tour operator specializing in authentic off-the-beaten track adventures throughout Nicaragua. All our adventures are led by local bilingual guides. All our tours are designed to give you an exceptional inside experience of the people, culture, traditions and landscapes of this country. Many of our tours take you right into the homes of local artists where you can watch or learn hands on traditional art forms or cuisine.We also offer customized tour packages, allowing you to design your own adventure or itinerary. All of our adventures focus of giving you the most amazing experience of Nicaragua while at the same helping support the local community. For every tour you take a percent of all our profits go directly towards the non-profit community projects that we support as part of Foundación Hokano.We work with local poor people to empower them to get involved in tourism for better life conditions and teaching them to protect the environment around them. Tours range from volcano hikes, islands, lakes and beaches, visits to local artists and artisans in which you are invited to learn hands on traditional art forms such as primitivism painting, guitar making, sawdust carpets and ceramic sculpting.An important initiative we have is voluntourism: We believe it is an important part of making tourism more sustainable, that it provides travellers and communities a way to connect, to learn, to appreciate each other's cultures, and work towards a better future. Our Voluntours provide opportunities for travellers to engage in community projects that are working on health, education, conservation and small business opportunities around.

We took the Revolution City Tour with Hokano. The tour group was small, which made the tour more personal and honest. I appreciate how the tour includes Leon's multiple sides, from walking through a refined art museum to driving through the city dump. Our guide also took us through a few of the many city murals, which visually captures Nicaragua's not-always-so-peaceful history. Hokano is locally owned and managed. Our guide was very candid, friendly, and knowledgeable. I HIGHLY recommend this tour!

I always take my passengers to this company because you are supporting a local tour company owner which is very proffesional, responsible, good hearth, good people, atmosphere, original and creative tours. It is always important to know who you are supporting to with your money and in this case is a good option as well as the very good tours they offer.

During my stay in Nicaragua I made several trips with Hokano Adventures and I definitely can recommend it to everybody. I participated in the Leon city tour, the Cerro Negro Volcano-Boarding, visited the mangroves, did some horse-back riding up to the Telica Volcano, made the Pilas-El Hoyo Hike and did the sawdust-carpet-tour. In the variety of their offers everybody can find a suitable tour. The friendly and experienced guides were always good for some jokes. They do a really great job! In all my tours the group size was quite small with 3 to 6 participants, so that the tours were quite personal and there was enough room for individual questions of the clients and talks about culture, history etc. The still not very touristy north of Nicaragua is definitely worth a visit, where active volcanoes, beautiful landscape and beaches, culture and tradition can be explored offside the mainstream tourist routes. Thanks a lot for showing me those beautiful sites of Nicaragua and giving me a deeper insight into the culture! I really enjoyed all tours and would use Hokano Adventures again if I ever go back to Nicaragua!
