Hokano Adventures is a grassroots tour operator specializing in authentic off-the-beaten track adventures throughout Nicaragua. All our adventures are led by local bilingual guides. All our tours are designed to give you an exceptional inside experience of the people, culture, traditions and landscapes of this country. Many of our tours take you right into the homes of local artists where you can watch or learn hands on traditional art forms or cuisine.We also offer customized tour packages, allowing you to design your own adventure or itinerary. All of our adventures focus of giving you the most amazing experience of Nicaragua while at the same helping support the local community. For every tour you take a percent of all our profits go directly towards the non-profit community projects that we support as part of Foundación Hokano.We work with local poor people to empower them to get involved in tourism for better life conditions and teaching them to protect the environment around them. Tours range from volcano hikes, islands, lakes and beaches, visits to local artists and artisans in which you are invited to learn hands on traditional art forms such as primitivism painting, guitar making, sawdust carpets and ceramic sculpting.An important initiative we have is voluntourism: We believe it is an important part of making tourism more sustainable, that it provides travellers and communities a way to connect, to learn, to appreciate each other's cultures, and work towards a better future. Our Voluntours provide opportunities for travellers to engage in community projects that are working on health, education, conservation and small business opportunities around.

The tour to the somoto canyon was very spectacular. We planned it very spontaneous but everything was perfect. Climbing, swimming, jumping, short drive with a boat... Thank you for a very perfect day!
