San Juan River

3 Days / 2 Nights

During this journey you will have the opportunity to sample one of Nicaragua’s wildest regions: the San Juan River basin.

Our first stop will be the frontier trading town of San Carlos. From there we move east along the river to the town of Sabalos. The highlights of this river journey are the visit of a 300 year-old Spanish fortress from where you have fantastic views of the river, an excursion to the Indio Maiz Biological Reserve, one of the most diverse in Central America, and a canoe tour on the little Bartola River surrounded by a luxuriant rainforest where birds and other animals can be observed.

El Castillo is a small and colorful village, which reveals itself by simply walking its narrow streets and meeting its friendly inhabitants. The day’s accommodation will be provided at a lodge, a simple but charming tropical place located on the edge of the river. It’s very important to consider that this tour is only recommended for those looking for adventure and not looking for comfort as the lodging conditions are quite basic.

Departure:  Daily (Except Tuesday and Saturday by flight.)  Also possible by land, please consult us for price.
