From quaint cities bursting with colonial architecture and a colorful past, to striking volcanoes, where green parakeets live amid the sulfurous smoke of a steaming crater, International Expeditions’ new Nicaragua tour offers a range of natural and cultural delights. And for those who want to take in tropical landscapes and vibrant wildlife in a safe and crowd-free environment, travel to Nicaragua, where you can enjoy a retreat that’s still “undiscovered” by the masses.

IE is thrilled to spend nine days in Nicaragua’s premier wildlife reserves and the historic towns of León and Granada, all while enjoying grand, colonial accommodations. Plus, you’ll have the pleasure of traveling with one of Nicaragua’s original naturalists.

Travel to Nicaragua’s Premier Wildlife Reserves

IE’s naturalist-guided Nicaragua tour takes in the country’s premiere wildlife hotspots -- Juan Venado Nature Reserve, Selva Negra Private Reserve, Masaya Volcano National Park, Chocoyero Reserve and Montibelli Private Reserve. Plus, you’ll spend a morning spotting birdlife and floating peacefully among Lake Nicaragua’s islets.

Could You Create Nicaragua’s First Bird Book?

Be part of creating the first bird book of species in Nicaragua! Ecotourism has the ability to positively impact a country, and IE is giving you the opportunity to help introduce new species to the world. As you traverse the country with our seasoned naturalist guides, you will also have the opportunity to be an active participant in cataloging any newly spotted species to create the Nicaragua’s first bird book — a true treat for nature enthusiasts with a pioneering spirit!
