These tours start bright and early in the morning to have time for the awesome journey to Granada, Nicaragua. This trip involves lush scenery and wonderful views. The destination, Granada, is one of the oldest colonial settlements in the Americas. Its infrastructure and buildings are quaint and antique. Some of the roads, which were made long before self-propelled transportation, are not even big enough for cars in many areas. Here you can shop at the Masaya market which specializes in native crafts that include things like hammocks and pottery. Some tour groups offer a hike and tour to the Masaya Volcano National Park. One can even see Santiago Crater, one of the most active craters in all of Central America. Some tours are all day and some are overnight. A valid passport is required.
The nesting of sea turtles is one of nature’s most amazing spectacles. Green Turtles nest along the beaches of Tortuguero National Park from July to October
Come to Playa Ostional to witness one of nature’s most rare creatures- the Lora turtle. Each season these majestic creatures lay between 80 and 100 eggs on the beach. They weigh in at over 100 pounds and are over 2.5 feet long. Unfortunately for these poor turtles, if the current rate of population decline doesn’t slow down or reverse, they might go extinct in the next 20 years. Fortunately for you, they still are easily viewable during the main season that is between May through February. It tends to peak in December where you can see hundreds of turtles during the night. Photographers aren’t allowed to take pictures at night so the tours can depart in the afternoon to give you the chance to see turtles during both the sunset and nighttime.
