The fort was built in 1673 by the Spanish to protect Nicaragua from European pirates and to protect the principal trade route across Central America. Horatio Nelson led the British navy into battle here in a failed attempt to take the fort. It is located 1.5 hours downriver by boat from San Carlos.
Hundreds of miles from civilization of any kind, this is the largest and most important nature reserve in Nicaragua and perhaps Central America. There is a great diversity and density of vegetation and wildlife here. You can explore, swim or just relax in your hammock listening to bird song
Located on Lake Nicaragua’s south-eastern tip and reached by boat from San Carlos, this group of forested islands is home to a colony of artists who were attracted by the lush vegetation and bird life
