My wife and I will be going on a 5 year anniversary and I've selected Nicaragua just due to the blend of nature and beach. We are limited on time and I think I can squeeze 10 nights. Definitely would like to see Masaya, Ometepe and then have at least 3 days or so on the beach. I also like the idea of going to Jicaro to do some exploring and then some relaxing. Any input/help would be greatly appreciated. We are late 20s and enjoy hiking and nature as much as a little tranquility from our busy lives.
Day 1: Arrive MGA, transfer to Granada
Day 2: Masaya and Laguna de Apoyo (hopefully a tour where we can enjoy the lake some)
Day 3: Tour Granada, transfer to Jicaro
Day 4: Kayak and relax at Jicaro ecolodge
Day 5: Mombacho tour and relax at Jicaro
Day 6: Transfer to Ometepe, possible waterfall hike
Day 7: Hike Madera
Day 8: Transfer to SJDS
Day 11: Depart MGA
Thanks so much for all of the help. I've already poured hours into reading the many reviews out there.
