This full-day, small-group shore excursion takes you from the cruise port in San Juan del Sur to 4 of the must-see locations in Nicaragua: Laguna de Apoyo lookout, the Masaya Volcano, Masaya Market and colonial Granada. The tour will be led by a knowledgeable guide who will provide historical and cultural insights throughout the trip. This tour includes light refreshments, transport by an air-conditioned minivan and port pickup and drop-off.

This small group tour starts at 9 am at the cruise port in San Juan del Sur and takes you on a scenic drive through Southern Nicaragua, passing by Lake Nicaragua before arriving at Laguna de Apoyo lookout in the charming town of Catarina. There, you can see the beautiful lagoon that has formed in the crater of a dormant volcano.

Then, following a short drive, you will arrive at the active Masaya volcano, where you can look into the crater and see the lava below. You'll be driven all the way to the edge of the crater, so there will be no walking required.

Your next stop will take place at the nearby Masaya Artisanal Market, for a chance to see high-quality Nicaraguan handicrafts and to purchase a few souvenirs (at own expense).

Finally, you'll head to the colonial city of Granada, where your guide will show you around the historic center, which includes highlights such as the Convent of San Francisco and the beautiful cathedral. You will have the chance to purchase lunch (at own expense) on the famous Calle La Calzada, before making the journey back to San Juan del Sur.
