Following breakfast, you will be picked up by your private guide and driver for your transfer to Granada. Lots to see and do on the way!
In the morning you will explore the Masaya Volcano, followed by a visit to the local artisan markets where a wonderful array of goods and crafts can be found. Masaya Volcano was the first National Park to be established in Nicaragua in 1979. The park includes a beautiful crater lake known as the Masaya Lagoon. You will be taken slowly to the summit of the volcano – en route you will visit the Environmental Interpretation Center, learn about the tectonic and volcanic activity in the region, and get to know the flora and fauna of the refuge.
Following your exploration of Masaya, you will enjoy lunch at one of our favorite restaurants in Granada – El Zaguan!
After a fantastic lunch, you will enjoy a private walking tour of the town of Granada. Granada is a truly beautiful Colonial town perched in a privileged position on the shores of Lake Nicaragua. The town is endowed with many well-preserved churches, and narrow streets with large homes featuring airy indoor patios, tiled roofs, and striking Colonial colors. Your guide will bring the place to life for you.
At the conclusion of your walking tour you will be taken to Cocibolca Marina for a private boat transfer to Jicaro Lodge!
While at Jicaro, relax and enjoy the many amenities and services of the lodge! There is much to do – enjoy the pool and the small beach, venture with the chef to the nearby farm to see how food is raised from farm and field to plate, enjoy spa treatments, and of course enjoy the wonderful culinary experience!
