Looking to get out of the major tourist areas for an off-the-beaten-path Nicaraguan adventure? Visit the authentic fishing village of Jiquilillo, with a range of accommodations and activities to suit different types of travelers.

Choose your own adventure! Tour the estuary for bird watching and scenic photography from a fishing boat. Grab a surfboard or boogieboard and catch some great waves. Explore the beach and village on horseback. Participate in one of the many voluntourism opportunities offered by non-profits to teach English, help to build homes, and more.

Jiquilillo is a great jumping-off point for exploring Nicaragua’s attractions, with organized tours for volcano boarding, estuary kayaking and standup paddleboarding, as well as city tours to hotspots like Leon or Granada.
