San Jacinto Mud Fields and Tortilla Workshop from León

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin your 2-hour tour with pickup at your León hotel or any designated meeting place in town. In a tour vehicle, travel the 12 miles (20km) to the San Jacinto Mud Fields.

    Upon arrival, walk around the area with your guide, viewing the mud pits of different sizes, depths and colors. See nature's force in action as the mud bubbles and churns, spitting up geysers of steam and small rocks. These are 'breathing holes' for the nearby Telica Volcano, part of the Maribios chain, which allow the geothermal forces an outlet and prevent the volcano from erupting. 

    Before departing for the next portion of your trip, pause to see the vendors selling ceramics made from volcanic mud. 

    Your next stop is a tortilla making workshop, hosted at the home of a local family. Learn about the process of cooking traditional Nicaraguan tortillas and get a chance to cook them yourself on a wood stove. After making a batch, get a taste of your final product before heading back to your  León hotel for drop-off.
