Small group tours & tailor made adventure holidays to Nicaragua and El Salvador

Nicaragua is known as ‘the land of lakes and volcanoes’, and as well as being the largest country in Central America, boasts a great outdoors that is relatively untamed and undeveloped. Conjuring up a real sense of adventure and untainted by crowds, the natural beauty of the country never ceases to amaze, as you paddle through wetlands flourishing with wildlife, hop between idyllic islands, climb majestic mountains, wander deserted jungle-clad beaches and explore pristine rainforests. The architecture is also a real allure, from the elegant colonial architecture of Granada, well-preserved and perfectly maintained, to the crumbling churches, rainbow streetscapes and proud heritage of far less-polished León. With a complex history of colonisation, revolution and dictatorship, Nicaragua today is a peaceful nation, home to skilled artists and fun-filled fiestas, and its people radiate warmth, wisdom and incredible hospitality. Next door to Central America’s largest nation sits its smallest. El Salvador is possibly Central America’s most underrated and misunderstood country. This tiny country is home to volcanoes carpeted with coffee plantations, glorious national parks, pre-Hispanic treasures, and picturesque little villages adorned with flowers and wonderfully flamboyant murals as well as a fascinating, if often difficult, past. Both Nicaragua and El Salvador sit well off the usual tourist trails through Central America, and receive few visitors compared to Guatemala, Costa Rica and Mexico, giving a trip here a feeling of discovery and authenticity that can be hard to find elsewhere in the region.
