Cuddle a caiman

Getting up close with Nicaragua’s wildlife on this 1.5 hour night tour. Four of us shared the costs which ended up $10 each – no complaints from me. This was value for money with accessible creatures.

A stunning atmosphere silently on the San Juan river under a zillion stars. Our guide could spot a creature from afar and the boatman would manoeuvre us close to shore to examine and learn about its habits and behaviour.
