DETOUR Travel & Culture is an in-bound tour operator dedicated to providing sustainable tourist services for stays or expeditions throughout Nicaragua and Costa Rica. We offer five specialties, or "experience modes":
All these modalities can be combined. In addition, to all itineraries we add some tours in colonial cities and visits to workshops and plants with great artistic wealth and originality, including those of painters, sculptors, fishermen, miners, cowboys, horticulturists, and manufacturers of cigars, sweets, calabash gourd cups, shoes, hammocks, or guitars. Our tours have no shortage of authentic cultural ingredients essential for sustainability. You'll have direct contact with the local population through various local activities such as dances, parties, and local music.
