walked through the working dock into the town to see what was there. Very poor conditions, however, interesting to see the day to day goings on there. If you are not comfortable with people following you around and asking you to view their wares, which were mostly men, I wouldn't recommend getting off the ship. If you have no problem saying "no thank you" and continue walking on ignoring them, you would be o.k. Read Less

We booked a local tour before we went. The locals had a big production complete with band and dancers. I didn't go into the local town, but it looked to be okay.

Absolute waste of time. Local provided a bike tour, numerous stops for locals in cardboard costumes to panhandle. Tour guide unhappy with pre negotiated price as well as a 50% tip!

We hired someone privately for a tour. It was supposed to be just my husband and I, then it become us two and four others, then at the last minute while we were in the van, they decided to merge two vans together and it became 15 people in a 15 passenger van. Small seats and tight quarters. Had a good time though, and learned a lot about the country. Saw a couple nice churches, bought some souvenirs. Fun time. Read Less

We took the Mud Pots tours. Nicaragua is very much a developing country - watch the streets and sidewalks so you don't fall. There's a lot of poverty - and a lot of beauty in the people and the country. The mud pots were interesting. In time I imagine it will be more developed. We enjoyed the not-so-impromptu and still quite enjoyable dancing and music by the local children. Younger ones may grab your hand and ask for money. Catch 22. You want to help - and you don't want to encourage keeping children out of school to beg. Read Less

Tour to Chinandega and then to two ranches. I had been to Corinto before and had the same your guide, Byron, who is excellent. Chinandega is a historic town with a lovely cathedral and interesting architecture. At the first ranch we get a demonstration of local pottery making, as well as tortillas and a dance show, before going on to the Rosario Ranch, also owned by the Coen family and a centre for the breeding and training of horses, as well as a clinic and rehabilitaiton centre for disabled children.

the next time I'm here I'm a think about taking it to her out of the town as I've been here twice now. The town is very poor and I try and buy things from the vendors or take a pedicab tour. But next time I might look to get out of the city or just stay on the ship.all the tourists seem to have very long transport to and from which I dislike. But I would hate to see this ship pull out of the sport AS the community really looks to the ship 4 revenues from the things they make and I'm sure it really helps the economy in that little town.

We got off the ship and walked to the town, about a 5 minute walk just outside the port. Many venders along the streets selling their goods. We then got a pedi cad (bicycle with seats for us), our person worked hard to move 4 adults around the town but he went everywhere we asked him. He took us to a few markets and then to the beach, waited for us and then back to the port. We felt very safe here and had a nice day. Read Less
