About the tour

Description

The Somoto Canyon, one of the oldest rock formations in Central America, has recently become one of the main destinations in the North of Nicaragua, after having recently "discovered" its tourist potential. This impressive site offers a unique setting in the country, and among its rocky walls you can carry out various tourist activities.

About 15 kilometers west of the city of Somoto, departmental capital of Madriz, is this amazing geological structure, which locals also know as "La Estrechura" or "Namancambre".

It is a channel of high vertical walls that extends for approximately five kilometers, in a winding path whose width varies between 10 and 15 meters. In this run the waters coming from the Comalí (Honduras) and Tapacalí rivers, which join to form the extensive Coco River. In its stony ground, the calm current is interrupted by rocky formations that give rise to seven or eight pools with semi-stagnant waters, creating an environment full of life, with plants and fish.

Private transport services:

From the city of Somoto you should continue on the Pan-American Highway that goes towards the Honduran border, and turn right at kilometer 230 ½. If you drive a four-wheel drive vehicle, you can continue for approximately two kilometers on a dirt road until you reach the river; otherwise, you must continue on foot or on horseback until you reach the entrance to the canyon.
