Embarking on a honeymoon is a journey that marks the beginning of a shared adventure, and what better way to commence this voyage than in the heart of Central America, in the hidden gem of Nicaragua.
From the bustling city of Managua to the serene beaches of San Juan del Sur, the colonial charm of Granada, and the volcanic wonders of Mombacho and Telica, our romantic trip in Nicaragua promised us a kaleidoscope of experiences. Join us as we recount the unforgettable moments, surprises, and the love that enveloped us throughout this enchanting journey.
Day 1 to 2: Welcome to Nicaragua!
As we landed at Managua International Airport, the warmth of Nicaragua greeted us. Our private transfer whisked us away to the heart of Managua, setting the stage for the adventures to come. The anticipation built as we received our travel documents, a key to the hidden treasures awaiting discovery.
Day 3 to 4: Blissful Days in San Juan del Sur
Leaving the city behind, we embarked on a scenic drive to Playa Ocotal at Morgan’s Rock, a secluded haven near the Pacific Ocean. The following days were ours to savor the richness of nature and adventure. From hiking to kayaking, horseback riding to surfing lessons, every moment was a choice between tranquility and excitement. San Juan del Sur, with its breathtaking landscapes and activities, provided the perfect canvas for the initial strokes of our honeymoon masterpiece.

A new chapter unfolded as we left the coast for Granada, a colonial jewel nestled by Lake Nicaragua. Guided by horse-drawn carriage, we traversed the city’s historic landmarks, immersing ourselves in the rich tapestry of its past. The day continued with a visit to the renowned Mombacho Cigar Factory, where we not only witnessed the artistry behind cigar-making but also crafted our own, a tangible memory of our journey.
Day 7 to 8: Mombacho Volcano Adventures
The Mombacho volcano beckoned, and we answered its call with a self-guided hike through lush rainforests. The canopy tour suggested by the travel agency software offered a bird’s eye view of the diverse flora and fauna, setting our hearts racing. The journey continued through Pueblos Blancos, weaving through villages famed for their handicrafts, adding vibrant hues to our memories.

Leaving Granada, we explored the former capital, León, a city pulsating with historical significance.

Our senses were heightened as we traversed its slopes, an exhilarating prelude to our encounter with the natural wonders of Isla Juan Venado Nature Reserve.
Day 11: Little Corn Island - A Caribbean Escape

A flight from Managua and a boat ride later, our local travel expert and I found ourselves on the shores of this idyllic island, where the azure waters whispered tales of relaxation and exploration.

The rhythm of the Caribbean sea dictated our days on Little Corn Island. From sun-soaked beaches to underwater wonders explored through snorkeling, each day unfolded at its own pace.

Day 14: Farewell to Little Corn Island
