Take a seat at a local restaurant for an authentic Nicaraguan lunch, then visit Santo Domingo beach for some free time. Swim in Lake Nicaragua or relax on the sand before boarding the ferry back to San Jorge, then your vehicle for transportation back to your Managua hotel.
Very good day out. Walter, the guide, was a gentleman, very nice and very knowledgable. The boat trip was very comfortable despite the fact the wind was probably blowing force 7 on the way out! Lunch at the Paraiso Hotel overlooking the beach was great and the views amazing. The swim at the spring fed lagoon was a lovely way to refresh! Tips: You don't need hiking shoes or sneakers, just a swimsuit and some sunscreen!
In this tour, lots of time is spend in transit, but if you are short in time, it and #39;s the perfect introduction into the island.
Interesting tour but too much hype. Swimming was a joke, no good place to change clothes. Full of mosquitoes and poor sanitation.
