This is the perfect activity to get to know Nicaragua's countryside and Leon's rural communities.
You will visit the Community of San Sebastian, a community 30 minutes away from Leon, with no electricity or public transportation that connects them to the city. People in the community live from agriculture and would love to share their livelihood and traditions with you.
We depart everyday form Leon at 8:30 AM and we arrive at San Sebastian at ~9AM. You will have cooking lessons to learn how to make your tortilla and cuajada (typical nicaraguan cheese). In the afternoon you can have a tour on horse or walk around the community. We return to Leon at around ~5pm.
- Transportation from the town center of Leon to the community of San Sebastian
- Typical nicaraguan lunch including a natural refreshment
- A local guide that will also translate for the community
Comfortable clothing, long trousers, sneakers, sunscreen and two liters of bottled water per person.
El Perezoso is a community tourism agency that started four years ago in Leon from a multicultural group with the objective to promote community and rural tourism in Nicaragua.
Our goal is to provide unique experiences to travelers and provide a positive footprint to the communities we work with. We try to merge the tourist industry principles with the principles of economic and social development with the purpose of supporting local communities.
