Adventure Seekers
First Class Travelers

Adventure seekers are probably best suited to explore many of the volcanoes in Nicaragua.  The ones on Ometepe are the best because you can have two amazing volcanoes right next to each other and one can do some kayaking on a river that runs between them.  On the Maderas Volcano there is also the San Ramon Waterfall to see and take refreshing dip in the water.  There is also plenty of adventure to be had on the Rio San Juan where you can see amazing wild life in the middle of the Amazonian style rain forest.  Other options to explore are the island of Zapaterra, the Somoto Canyon and the Rio Coco up north on border between Honduras and Nicaragua.  Adventure seekers may also want to give surfing a try.  Check out the surfing section in the magazine.

Eco-travelers have a variety of options to choose from as well but the best eco friendly destinations are on the island of Ometepe and the Rio San Juan.  On the island of Ometepe one can choose from multiple different places to stay.  Each of them is a varying degree of eco friendly.  The extreme environmentally friendly lodges don’t even have running water.  However, most don’t go to that extreme but it is up to you on what type of eco-friendly vacation you want to have.  On the beach Morgan’s Rock is the most “luxurious” places to stay.  Their facilities and activities are among the best for travelers under this category.  Morgan’s Rock has won numerous awards and been named among the top eco-friendly destinations in the world.  Another option is the unique hotel that is the Jicaro Island Ecolodge on one of the islands off of Granada with the Mombacho Volcano as a backdrop.  An eco-lodge that has this setting and location will be hard to find anywhere else in the world.
