Description

Founded in 1995, ORO Travel is a pioneering tour operator in Nicaragua. Thanks to our vast professional experience and enthusiasm, we help even the most demanding visitor discover the incredible cultural and natural beauty of Nicaragua. In our offices, located in the center of the historical city of Granada, we design, adapt, and personalize tours to satisfy the needs of each visitor.

ORO Travel aims to constantly improve our programs and offer unique products, whether it’s a private gourmet picnic on the beach, an exclusive dinner at the private colonial home of a local personality, or kayaking through natural canals formed by scattered tropical islands, where thriving plant life and exuberant bird life can both be seen. We will always find a way to make your vacation very special. From your arrival in Nicaragua to your departure, ORO Travel works hard to exceed your expectations.

Our qualified and passionate tour guides and professional drivers are part of our exceptional team, offering visitors the best information, assistance, activities, and travel experience in different languages including English, German, French, Russian, and, of course, Spanish. Both individual tourists and groups will enjoy the many options Nicaragua has to offer including volcano hikes, open-air local music concerts, rum tastings, feeling the colonial history come alive, enjoying our exciting lakes, rivers, and oceans, and simply resting in our famous hand-made hammocks.
