TRAVEL DETAILS

Who Is This Trip For? 

This trip is for the traveler who has an adventurous spirit, is looking to get some rest and relaxation time in with tropical vibes, but also wants to experience the varied aspects of Nicaraguan culture. This traveler is open minded, inherently curious, and enjoys indulging in the moment. This trip is for the traveler who finds joy in stepping outside of their comfort zone, loves trying new things, and is excited to explore a culture completely different from their own. While El Camino Travel provides a high level of customer service, our traveler is someone who is easy-going and amenable to change in the diverse and unpredictable landscape of travel in Latin America. 

Our adventurous style of group travel is not for everyone. Please read carefully through the itinerary and the above description to ensure that you are booking a trip that fits your comfort level. 

Accommodations

Accommodations will be customized according to the travelers preference. The pricing of $1999 per person includes accommodation for a three star classic hotel that has been vetted by our team. We have additional accommodation suggestions for those that want to be upgraded to four star or who may be traveling in a group and would rather rent a private house for an additional price. Whatever our recommendation may be according to your preference, we promise we chose these locations because we love them with all our heart and soul and because they pass the El Camino standard of customer service with flying colors. 

We seek more boutique and unique accommodations with plenty of charm and character, ones that provide a worthwhile experience. Most importantly,
these places stay true to our ethos of local immersion. Please do not expect our recommendations to be hotels like Hilton, Marriott, or other large corporate and standard hotels. We assure you that your accommodations will be clean, safe, and well-maintained.
