It would take years to explore all the nooks and crannies along the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua. Here are a few of the more exciting destinations that we offer day trips to.
Black Water Creek and El Bluff Beach
Just hearing the name Caño Negro, or Black Water Creek in creole English, conjures up images of a lost jungle river with wildlife swinging from the canopy. The creek is in fact just that, a wild branch of the river not far from Bluefields that offers one of the best opportunities to see animals in their natural habitat. Sloths, monkeys, crocodiles and the ever-elusive leopards have all been seen while touring the creek.
In the afternoon you can cool off in the Caribbean sea and lay out on the beach in the community of El Bluff.
This trip is also available as an overnight trip.
- Exploration of Black Water Creek (Morning trip)

Green Hills Ecofarm
Only a few minutes from Bluefields will seem like a world away when you visit Green Hills Ecofarm. Green Hills is a cozy retreat nestled on the edge of the Cerro Silva forest reserve. It is an excellent location to relax among the fruits trees and hardwoods or lounge in a cabana while enjoying the view of Bluefields Bay. If feeling adventurous, you can paddle the canoe around to get a better look at some of the bird species that call Green Hills home.
