    Nicaragua Volcano Vistas

    Cloud forests, shade-grown coffee, Montibelli, El Jaguar, Matagalpa, and Selva Negra

    Enjoy an ecologically-sensitive exploration of the nature, scenery, and rural communities of Nicaragua accompanied by a superb local guide.  Most nights you will stay in small ecolodges located on or near organic, shade-grown coffee plantations which have become world models of sustainable management.  These are very pleasant and ecologically-rich environments in contrast to the industrial coffee farms in most of the world.  You will learn about the natural and cultural history of of Nicaragua by hiking on active volcanoes, exploring the native forests around the local coffee fincas, and traveling with local naturalists. Visit the old colonial city of Grenada renowned for its art, architecture, and fine dining. Expect good food, very friendly local people, surprising dedication to good environmental practices, and wonderful opportunities for nature and culture photography.   If you enjoy coffee, this trip will help you appreciate the virtues and significance of "organic," "shade-grown," and "fair trade" designations.  This is what Costa Rica was like 30 years ago. However you may imagine Nicaragua now, this trip will  change your view of the country and the people in a very favorable and postive way. And, you will feel good about supporting sustainable agricultural practices.
