We did the four hour tour and it was great! The guide was very patient when we were doubting if we were gonna jump of the eight meter rock. There was time to enjoy the beautiful nature and time to do the most crazy things!...More

Thank you for your review. It's what we tell everyone too. Come up to the north of Nicaragua to do the canyon. We are now rated by TripAdvisor as the number one outdoor activity in the whole country!

It’s an absolutely outstanding nature wonder the somoto canyon. You see videos and pictures but they don’t do justice. Once there you simply can’t believe how beautiful and unique it is. Our family still misses it! And Ramon, our guide, heavily contributed to that! He...More
