Beautiful place and fun way to spend the day. Jumps off the cliffs are fun and get your blood pumping (although you don't have to do them if you don't want). Water is nice and refreshing, especially on a warm day. You could go it...More

This was both beautiful and fun! Reminded me of the awesome walk through majestic Zion canyon in Utah except you actually have to swim through parts of Somoto and the water is probably 20 degrees warmer. Some great cliffs to climb and jump off of...More

The people with Somoto Canyon went above and beyond to make this a great adventure. We stayed at their place - great food, and great location. Do yourself a favor - do this tour!

The canyon was amazing! Absolutely loved it. If you arrange your own transportation don't waste your money at the initial place (with all the signs) you come upon for tour guides. They want $30 Usd or more. Take the dirt road that's right next to...More

Great nature, cool guides who took care of everybody and also carried our stuff in a waterproof bag, just a small group of 7 persons (during the 6hrs we just saw 3 other people and some locals). Great hikes, swim and jump sessions up to...More

I did not know what to expect, but once you get to the place, make sure you go all the way in to the park entrance. Do not get sucked in by the people that come to you right of the main road. Once you...More
