Lake Island Honeymoon
Volcanic Island Escape in Lake Nicaragua
7 days – 6 nights
One of the world’s most exotic and un-explored great lakes, Lake Nicaragua baths more than 450 volcanic islands that are home to stunning tropical wildlife, rain forest, volcanoes and the remains of ancient civilizations. For those who want to be waterfront, but also escape the common conception of ocean beach honeymoons, this is a perfect match. Only Nicaragua can offer so much fun bathed in warm fresh water and tropical lake breezes. Lake Nicaragua Island Honeymoon takes you to the sleepy lake island archipelago of Las Isletas in the shadow of the Mombacho Volcano and the massive dual volcano Island of Ometepe. Aside from relaxing lake front and swimming in Lake Nicaragua’s super clean and warm waters this trip includes lake kayaking, lake-front mountain biking and volcano hiking in tropical forests. This honeymoon features the best two island hotels in Nicaragua, both highly exclusive, with unique character and very personal service. Lake Nicaragua Island Honeymoon is a week of lake, forest, volcano and beach that is unique to Nicaragua.
