Known as the "land of lakes and volcanoes," spending your vacation in one of the San Lorenzo rentals in Nicaragua will give you a chance to enjoy nature to the fullest. Numerous guided tours are all over the country. If climbing up a volcano or touring the countryside on bicycles is your kind of adventure, read on as we give a sneak peek at what tours to take when vacationing in Nicaragua.
Mombacho volcano is very popular for guided tours from your San Juan del Sur vacation home. Climb up the 1,400-meter to visit one of the county's amazing cloud forests. There you'll get the chance to see unique orchids that can only be found in the region and diverse species of birds and tropical flowers. You can also enjoy a canopy tour. There is also a scientific laboratory at the peak, as well as a small museum where visitors can learn facts and information about the volcano and the wildlife it supports. From the peak, you'll get an amazing view of Zapater Island, the Lake of Nicaragua, the city of Granada, and the volcano's crater.
This is a half-day tour that will give visitors a chance to get close enough to see and observe an active volcano crater which is also inhabited by birds who have already adapted to the gasses produced there. An old crater you can view is also close by. After the crater-viewing, visitors are also taken to see the beautiful Pueblos Blancos and continue on to the View Point of Catarina where the panoramic beauties of the city of Granada, the Lagoon of Apoyo, and the Lake of Nicaragua can be seen. Some tours even serve traditional Nicaraguan meals as you enjoy the sights.
Biking in Nicaragua
Biking tours of Nicaragua are also available. You can take a bike ride through Granada and see the Mombacho Volcano's cloud forest, tour the colonial city, get to see the cattle ranches, and end up on the shores of Lake Nicaragua. You can also go to Ometepe and tour the island on a bike and get to see up close what they call the volcano with the most perfect cone, the Concepcion volcano, and the second highest volcano in Central America, the Maderas volcano. Most hotels offer these bike tours, and most bike rentals are $5 to 6 a day.
There are more biking and volcano tours offered all over San
Lorenzo. These tours usually take you all over Nicaragua, so be
prepared with ample supply of water bottles, sunscreen, hiking gears,
and comfortable clothes. To help you further on your search for the
