LIVIN' TRANQUILO OVERVIEW10 Days

Livin' Tranquilo: 10-day Nicaragua Backpacking Adventure Tours

Wanting to explore Central America? Leave it in the hands of Nicaragua travel experts with LBW Travel

From landing at the Nicaragua airport, to exploring the local beaches, we will ensure that your trip to Nicaragua is safe, fun and unforgettable.  

Although Nicaragua is hailed as “the next Costa Rica”, it is relatively untouched by tourism. Only those in the know understand how diverse this destination is, and that is half the draw; Nicaragua offers all the same beauty and activities as its southern brother, at half the cost. The beautiful beaches offer some of the best surfing in all of Central America, and inland Nica is laden with jungles, lakes, and volcanoes begging to be explored. 

On this tour, you can surf on the beaches of Escameca and Yankee, while also volunteering at a local school. In San Juan del Sur, surf, snorkel, fish, sunbathe and partake in the lively party atmosphere, including the wild Sunday Funday Pool Crawl. Explore the volcanos in Ometepe while listening to howler monkeys calling in the jungle. 

Think 10 days backpacking in Central isn't enough? Check out our Central Combo Tours that can extend your Nicaragua journey into Costa Rica, and Panama! 

Airport Transfers: Pick-up and drop-off airport transfers can be added to your booking at an additional cost (please inquire for more information.) 

Seasonal Pricing is in effect for select tours, please see our FAQ for more information.
