Choosing the Best Family Catamaran Packages in Nicaragua This Weekend
Your family has worked hard all week. The kids had school, you had work, and everyone pitched in to complete countless chores and errands. You all deserve a break! The last thing you want is more screen time for the kids and more time cooped up at home for you. It’s time you give serious consideration to getting out on the open water. Booking one of the catamaran packages in Nicaragua makes this possible! The question is, which one?
By following a few helpful pieces of advice, you can feel confident in your chosen tour company and package. You’ll feel nothing but excitement for the trip to come! All it takes is remembering a few helpful tips.
Tips and Advice on Selecting Catamaran Packages in Nicaragua
To know for sure you’re selecting the right package, ask yourself the following questions:
How Long Do We Want to be Gone?
Your first decision is going to be whether you want a four hour, half-day excursion or one that will last the entire day. If you select a mid-day experience, you can either be gone in the morning from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm or in the afternoon from 1:30 pm to 5:30 pm. This is important to decide first, because your answer to this question will have a large effect on what you have time to do on board and which destinations will fit into your itinerary.
If you have small children, you may feel a full eight hours in the sun is too much for them. Perhaps a morning at sea is perfect for your family. On the other hand, if you have older kids or teens and you want to spend as much time enjoying the sunshine and salty sea air as possible, go ahead and book the full day. Your answer to this question should reflect your unique family’s wants and needs.
What do We Want to do?
When you are sailing, getting there is half the fun! This is why you want to ensure that your catamaran packages in Nicaragua make your day extra special. On board, there are games, food, binoculars, and more. Your chosen tour company should work with you to create a package that includes anything you want and need. A few additional add-ons may include:
- Shiatsu massage
- Yoga on the beach
- DJ on Board
- Floral decoration
- Video editing
- Surf or paddle board lessons
- Food service (fruits, ceviche, and tuna tataki)
You want to make this day as special as possible for your family, and oftentimes this means adding on to the basic packages. If you don’t see what you’re looking for on this list, that doesn’t mean it cannot be done. Simply ask!
Where do We Want to Go?
Here in Nicaragua, the ocean is gorgeous and the beaches are pretty spectacular too. Our country is home to some of the best beaches in the entire world. It’s nearly impossible to list all the beaches you may see up and down the Pacific Coast!
Traveling up the northern coast from San Juan del Sur and an hour outside Rivas is Playa Gigante. Playa Gigante is known the world over as a beautiful crescent beach. Isla Anciana is known for the biodiversity of migratory and perennial birds in the area. You can actually get onto the shore and take a tour of the island, seeing this for yourself up close and personal. That’s not the only spot your kids will see animals. Playa Brasilito, in nearby Costa Rica, is known for an incredible showing of large-scale turtle hatchlings. Want to simply lay out in the sun? Playa Blanca is a truly amazing destination named for the color of its sand, as it is one of the few beaches in the Pacific with white sand and crystal clear water. There’s truly no wrong choice!
