Indio Maiz Reserve & El Castillo
The vast Indio-Maíz Biosphere is home to many of Nicaragua's most famous species, including deer, wild boars, pumas, sloths, jaguars, manatees, howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, spider monkeys, poison dart frogs, snakes, crocodiles, turtles, and iguanas. On this full-day tour, you'll head into the reserve on foot with a local guide, following a nature trail through the tropical forest as you spot the area's incredible animals.
After a freshly prepared lunch, you'll continue to the jungle town of El Castillo, a picturesque place filled with colorful riverside houses and fruit trees. The town has a rich history filled with conquerors and pirates, and the 17th century hilltop Spanish fortress serves as a reminder of those days. After strolling through El Castillo, enjoying the views and meeting some of its easy-going residents, you'll be transferred back to your hotel.
