My wife and I are travelling to Nicaragua in mid November and plan to visit, in no particular order : Granada, Leon, Ometepe Island, Masaya and San Juan del Sur. We also want to squeeze in 5 days of Spanish lessons so need to do that where we can find activities to cover the afternoons.
Any suggestions for how long to stay at each location to see " everything"
One or maybe 2 volcano hikes will suffice.
Any suggestions for decent hotels in each place considering a planned hotel budget of1000 for the trip.
Also, and this is stretching it- a suggestion for where to visit first considering we will be using local transport. My thought was Managua airport to Masaya to San Juan to Ometepe to Granada to Leon then back to Masaya.
