Nicaragua is like the lesser-known kid brother to Costa Rica: it might not be as popular, but it offers all the same beauty and activities at half the cost. This means that Nicaragua is far less touristy, and much more of a true backpacking challenge. The beaches are amazingly beautiful and the surfing is some of the best in all of Central America. Inland Nica is stocked with jungles and lakes which are ready to be explored. This tour offers a variety of activities to indulge in including volcano treks, beaches, yoga, surfing, and (of course) partying. It won’t be long before this place blows up just like Costa Rica has, so come down and explore Central America’s hidden gem before everyone else.

This special reading week tour is tailored to the needs of the stressed out student who desperately needs a break. We know how hard you’ve been working, and we are here to help you relax and enjoy some time to yourself. Whether you want your break to be filled with partying until the wee hours of the night, or doing yoga and surfing on a beach – we have you covered! Everyone needs some rest and adventure in their life, and what better way to spend it than down in Nicaragua?!

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