After breakfast your guide will accompany you to the borders of the Lake of Nicaragua, where you will start a boat trip to explore the numerous islands situated in the lake, probably once created by an eruption of the nearby Mombacho volcano. The flora and fauna you will encounter is simply impressive.
After returning to the shore you will have the afternoon to yourself.
Interesting optional tours are (for example):
• City tour Granada (by mountain bike)
Your guide will escort you along the city highlights in this 2-hour city bike tour. You will visit the San Francisco Church as well as the San Francisco Convent, built in 1529. Nowadays functioning as a museum, the Convent has an impressive collection of pre-Columbian art. The beautiful La Merced church can be climbed right to the top of the bell tower and demonstrates spectacular views over the city, Lake Nicaragua, and Volcán Mombacho. Next stop is La Polvora Fortress where you learn about its history and walk through its immaculate courtyard. Finish your tour in the oldest part of the city where you visit the Xalteva Church and the old city walls.
• On top of the Mombacho volcano
You will drive to the top of the Mombacho volcano (1150 meters), completely covered with cloud forest. The Mombacho is a dormant volcano with a wide variety of vegetation, bird wildlife (173 species), reptiles (36 species), amphibians (10 species), mammals (47 species) and several endemic butterflies. After visiting the scientific station you can explore this impressive volcano during an easy walk to a spectacular viewpoint with great views over Granada, Las Isletas, Laguna de Apoyo and Masaya Volcano. If you wish a little more action, consider the treetop canopy tour on the slopes of the Mombacho with 17 platforms.
