    Mombacho Volcano Hike

    San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

    Duration 8 hrs

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a leisurely one and three-quarters hour drive north through the emerald-green countryside and into pristine Mombacho Volcano Natural Reserve. At the base of the namesake volcano, you will transfer to a 4WD truck and travel over 3,200 feet in elevation to the top of the magnificent Mombacho Volcano. The drive itself is worth the trip as you will climb grades of up to 40 percent through several types of forest ecosystems: a drier tropical forest, semi-moist broad leaf tropical forest, and a spectacular and very rare cloud forest. The higher you go, the cooler the temperature. It’s an ideal environment for growing coffee and there are numerous plantations within the forest.

As you traverse the primarily natural paths, you will learn about and observe the rich eco-system of the area that boasts steaming fumaroles, over 50 species of mammals, 174 species of birds and 90 different types of orchids. Listen carefully during your trek and you will notice that natural sounds are amplified by the craters.

Free time follows, so you can stroll about this magnificent colonial city nestled on Lake Nicaragua’s northern shore. Be sure to see the much-admired San Francisco Convent, which now houses a cultural center with fine pre-Columbian statues. For inspired shopping, head for Granada’s central plaza.

    Quebrada Valencia Ecological Expedition

    Santa Marta, Colombia

    Duration 4 1/4 hrs

    Marvel at the unique ecology within the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta National Park as you walk through the forest to its spectacular Quebrada Valencia waterfalls.


    Depart from the pier and drive east toward the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta National Park, a massive piece of land containing part of the world’s highest coastal mountain range. The mountains are the source of the Quebrada Valencia River and countless other streams that wind through the pristine countryside. The park is so revered for its ecosystem and cultural content that UNESCO declared it a Biosphere Reserve of Man and Humanity.


    Upon arriving, you will begin a guided walk through the forest and over rocky terrain into a land still inhabited by several indigenous Indian tribes. Wildlife abounds, including Sierra parrots, tapirs and Paramo deer. A variety of exotic flora also flourishes, and you may pass in the shadow of towering wax palms and ceiba de leche trees.


    It takes approximately a half hour to reach the waterfalls, and it’s well worth the effort. Emerging from the dense forest, the cascading waterfalls from the Quebrada Valencia River form a series of small, crystal-clear pools. The tropical setting couldn’t be lovelier or more serene. You will enjoy approximately one hour here to relax and wander about as you please, perhaps taking a dip in the refreshing waters. Tropical birds abound here so you may see some squawking in the treetops above. Afterwards, you will retrace your route back to the pier.


    Need to Know:

    Note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of moderate to strenuous walking, plus any additional at the guests’ discretion during time at the waterfalls. There will be uneven and natural terrain to negotiate as well as some inclines and steps. Standing at the waterfalls will also be on uneven, natural surfaces and could be slippery if wet. If there has been significant rain, it will be necessary to cross running water that can be knee-deep. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns.
