Please note -- we are currently in the midst of finding a new destination for this year's NYE tour and will be halting sign-ups until we have completed the process. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding such.

Want to ring in the new year - Nica Style? Experience celebrating another year of adventures with travellers from around the globe in Nicaragua for this week-long special event!

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, explore the bright, culturally-rich town of Granada. In San Juan del Sur, surf, sunbathe, rock out on a sunset catamaran tour, and get wild in the crazy party atmosphere, including the wild Sunday Funday Pool Crawl and NYE fiesta! Explore Central America’s hidden gem before the secret gets out!

Think 7 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: If you would like us to book airport transfers for you, please let us know after booking the trip and we can make arrangements as needed. We will have more information regarding our airport transfer prices and times in your welcome email and subsequent group updates, so you can also keep an eye out for that once you've locked in your spot with a deposit! If you have any questions about this, don't hesitate to contact us prior to booking at or 1-888-749-3747.

Important Information Regarding Flights:

We currently offer to include round-trip airfare departing from any location; if your location isn’t listed, select ‘other' during your sign-up according to your region, and include your requested departure city in the comments box. We offer to book flights on your behalf to provide a smooth trip for you, but you are more than welcome to book your own flights, in which case you would select a ‘land only’ tour.

The difference in price between the land only cost of the tour, and your package price for the round-trip flights + tour option, is your flight allowance. If the cost of your flight is more than the flight allowance, then that difference will be communicated to you prior to booking the flights, which will then will be added to your invoice and booked only after receiving your confirmation. During the months of July, August & December, flights tend to increase in cost substantially, so there will most likely be an additional flight fee to fly during those times; however, please keep in mind that flights fees can occur at any time of the year because the aviation industry tends to have erratic pricing.

Please note that if booking a tour within 1 month of departure, and are requesting flights, please contact us ahead of time as we may not be able to book flights on your behalf in that timeframe, but will be able to offer you an alternative solution.

Please note that due to time zones and travel time, flight departures are normally 1 day prior to the trip start date.
