San Juan River
(3 days / 2 nights)



During this journey, we will have the opportunity to sample one of Nicaragua’s wildest regions: the San Juan River basin. Our first stop will be the frontier trading town of San Carlos. From there we move east along the river to the town of Sabalo. The highlights of this river journey are the visit of the 300 year-old Spanish fortress from where fantastic views of the River can be appreciated, an excursion to the Indio Maiz Biological Reserve, one of the most diverse in Central America, a canoe tour on the little Bartola River surrounded by a luxuriant rainforest, where birds and other animals can be observed.

El Castillo is also a small and colorful village, where it revels it self just by a simple visit by its slender streets and gentle inhabitants. These days accommodation will be provided at Lodge a simple but charming tropical place located just on the edge of the river. It’s very important to consider that this tour is only recommended for those looking for adventure and not looking for comfort as the lodging conditions are quite basic.

Recommended gear : Light clothes, rain jacket, flashlight, comfortable walking shoes or hiking boots, mosquito repellant.
