Tour description

Welcome to Nicaragua! The oldest city on the American continent that still remains in the same place where it was founded. I propose a very complete 3-hour tour in which to have a first contact and find out with a local.

 We started in Central Park at the Cruz del Siglo.
We visit Xalteva Park , an ancient indigenous settlement of Xalteva before the arrival of the Spanish, where we can appreciate the Xalteva Church , the ancient walls of Xalteva built in 1751 and the Plaza de Xalteva.

We will continue through the Church and the tower of the Virgen de la Merced where you will be able to appreciate a 360º panoramic view.
Our next stop will be the chocolate factory where you can learn more about the history of chocolate and taste the products made in the same factory.
Our next steps:

  • Independence Square
  • lion square
  • San Francisco Convent and San Francisco Church , the oldest in the city, 1529

 Also, there will be a lot of history of Nicaragua from the arrival of the Spanish, the invasions of pirates, the independence of the country, the civil war, the famous story of William Walker, the only American to be president of Nicaragua, the invasion of United States marines, the 43-year dictatorship and the FSLN Sandinista revolution

I have 19 years of experience all over my country and it would be my pleasure to teach you about the rich and interesting history of my country. It will be my pleasure to serve you and enjoy with good memories of my city.

Enrique was amazing! We walked through the streets of the city centre where he pointed out important buildings and architecture, reminding us of Nicaragua’s fascinating history! He has incredible knowledge of the city having lived here his entire life. His English was fantastic, and he answered any question we asked with a smile! We ventured to parts of Granada we would never have seen if it not for Enrique, so much to learn in such a beautiful part of Nicaragua🫶 We all thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon, so much so we stayed an extra hour listening to his stories!! Couldn’t get enough of it. Opened our eyes and hearts to this beautiful country ❤️
