After pickup from your hotel in Guanacaste, enjoy a typical Costa Rican breakfast at Rest in Liberia town, located in the northwest region of the country. Then, re-board your coach to cross the border into Nicaragua.

First, stop at Catarina viewpoint, one of the highest hills surrounding the Apoyo Lagoon. Look out across the water to adjacent Lake Nicaragua and admire Mombacho Volcano, which

borders the lake.

Next, walk through at Catarina Craft Market. It's an interesting place to search for souvenirs, including textile and ceramic handicrafts along with goods made of leather and wood. Continue to Granada, established in 1524, and hop inside a volanta for a 45-minute horse-drawn carriage ride. Learn about the city's colonial history and architecture as you pass the colorful homes and squares along the palm-lined streets. Pass attractions such as Parque Central, a central park popular with local residents, and admire the 12 stained-glass windows of Granada Cathedral, housed within its borders.

Enjoy a leisurely a la carte lunch at restaurant in Granada and then continuous the tour visiting Masaya Volcano. Masaya is an active volcano with constant flumes of sulfuric smoke spewing from the main crater Santiago. From the top you'll get an excellent view of the whole place, perfect for taking pictures.
