If you’re looking for a little adventure and thrill seeking, we have you covered.  From Volcanoes to lakes, we will get you out of the resort and into the real Nicaragua.  Trade your sandals for boots and get ready to get dirty.  Explore, discover and embark on our favorite Adventure Day trips below.

For a full day trip of culture and adventure, travel north towards the Colonial town of Granada, while also stopping at one of the country’s largest volcanoes, Mombacho.  Experience the power of this active volcano while enjoying a walk around the crater with an epic view down to Granada.  Then make your way to the city center to experience the charm and history of one of the oldest colonial towns in Central America.  Great food, local markets, and a chocolate museum are just a few of the memorable attractions throughout a day in Granada.

Take a tour of a local Finca (farm) to learn and experience the traditional techniques of local Nicaraguans.  Learn how to make homemade tortillas and cheese from fresh.

If the surf is small or you are just looking for an easy adventure, traveling to Ometepe Island for the day is a great option.  Ferries are available out of San Jorge (about 45 minutes from Hacienda Iguana) which can get you to the island in 1 hour.  Once there, you can hike to a waterfall, ride ATVs around the island, enjoy the natural springs at Ojo de Agua, or just enjoy the view of both volcanoes.
