Nicaragua has been a top tourist destination for years among backpackers looking adventure, surf, and a little relaxation. Due to its low crime rate, and nearly endless activities, families are now starting travel to Nicaragua in droves to experience what the country has to offer. If you’re planning now for your next vacation, let us show you just a few reasons why your family will love spending their spring break in Nicaragua.
Spend the day on the water.
Chartering a boat for a full, or half, day of activities with Captain Greg is a great way to spend the day with the family. A typical day on the water will include fishing for world class mahi-mahi, bill fish, mackerel, or tuna. Make sure to keep your eyes open for the occasional pod of dolphins, or humpback whales, breaching the surface.
After some fishing, you and the family will be taken to a secluded beach for some swimming, snorkeling, beach combing. On your trip back at the end of the day, you’ll all be treated to one of Nicaragua’s famous sunsets. If you’re looking for quality family time together, this is one of the best ways to get it.
Take the family zip-lining.
No matter how adventurous, or not, your family may be zip-lining is a fun, safe, way to spend a few hours together. To begin your adventure, you’ll be driven high up into the hills of Nicaragua. Once there you’ll be harnessed up, and ready for the first of sixteen zip-lining platforms.
From your vantage point, high above the jungle canopy, you’ll enjoy amazing jungle and ocean views. Be sure to be on the look out for the monkeys, sloths and numerous species of birds that call these jungles home.
Try your hand at surfing.
Whether you’re a family of experienced surfers, or just starting out, Nicaragua offers some of the best surf vacations in the world. You have numerous beaches in Nicaragua to choose from for your family surf vacation. Not sure which beach is best for your skill levels? Sign up for a surf package, and you can experience numerous, off the beaten path, beaches chosen specifically for your skill level.
After a couple of hours of lessons, even first-time surfers will find themselves having a blast riding the waves in.
There are numerous volcanoes in Nicaragua for you and your family to explore. The truly athletic family can spend the day hiking up Volcan Concepcion on the island of Ometepe. This 9-11 hour, round-trip, hike will take you up 1610 meters to the volcano’s crater. Your reward for reaching the top will be a beautiful view of the Nicaraguan countryside, Lake Nicaragua, as well as the Pacific Ocean.
If a full day of hiking sounds like too much work, you can opt for a scenic drive up to the top of Volcan Mombacho. Once at the top, you have a variety of hiking options. There are four craters at the top of Mombacho, and each can easily be reached on foot. During your hike to these craters you can expect to see both howler, and white faced, monkeys, deer, sloths and numerous species of birds.
Spend the day relaxing at the beach.
