smALL GROUP TRIPS TO NICARAGUA
Who Is This Trip For?
This trip is for the traveler who has an adventurous spirit, is looking to squeeze the most out of their time in Nicaragua, and cares about making the world a better place through responsible tourism. The trip is filled with experiences that allow you to be immersed in the varied cultures of Nicaragua. 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.
This trip is also for a solo traveler who does not want to travel solo, but instead with an interesting group of people and for those who do not want to spend countless hours planning a trip of a lifetime.
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.
Our trips are very active, and involve a lot of walking, standing, and moving around—sometimes, in very high temperatures, with high humidity, on uneven roads and terrains, in busy cities. While we work to accommodate all travelers, other modes of transportation are not always available, due to infrastructure, making walking the only option. Travelers should be willing and able to walk anywhere up to 4 miles each day, up and down stairs and hills, and be able to stand for extended periods of time. If you have any concerns or questions about the activity level of this trip, have recently had surgery, or have any history of mobility issues, please reach out to us at email@example.com before booking—we want to insure that everyone on our trips is safe, and will be able to keep up with the active itinerary.
Note On The Photography Component: We provide a group travel photographer on certain trips so that our travelers can focus on being present in the moment and let someone else capture it. They are the photographer for the whole group and not a personal photographer to each individual traveler. We provide our travelers with dynamic and candid images throughout the trip so that they can share with their friends and family in real time. While this is an important element that adds to the unique experience of our trips, it is not the focus of our trip. Our travelers are excited about receiving stunning images each morning, but the act of travel and indulging in the moment is what they value most.
Join El Camino Travel on an adventure that explores vibrant city of Granada, also known as the Emerald. This adventure includes a visit to a volcanically-heated lagoon, a day aboard a private catamaran visited secluded beaches, a city tour, a special opportunity to give back to this beautiful nation by working hand in hand with an organization called UP Nicaragua, a day on a private island, and more. All trips include a group photographer who will provide you with 20 dynamic and compelling images of the group on a daily basis, that you can immediately share with your social media.
Host + Group Photographer
We have a roster of well qualified host and creative photographers that we work with. Prior to your trip, you will receive a welcome packet that will inform you on who will be guiding and documenting your adventure.
For all trips to Nicaragua, we have three different rooming options at the stylish and award winning Tribal Hotel, plus a private villa, a 30 second walk away, designed by the same hoteliers. The Tribal hotel + private villa really are all their cracked up to be. No detail has been forgotten. Enjoy a riad-style courtyard with a beautifully tiled pool, day beds, indoor/outdoor living and diving spaces with hand-selected design elements everywhere you look.
On each trip there are 5 private rooms ($1950), 3 shared rooms that each have 2 separate beds ($1600 per person) and 2 king bed rooms for 2 people ($3200 for 2 people, must be booked together).
If you do not have a partner in crime, don't worry, we welcome solo travelers and our trips are perfectly set up to allow you to make new friends. However, you must be comfortable sharing a room with another traveler in the group of the same gender, or book one of the private rooms if they are still available.
