**ACTIVITIES AND IDEAS**
Hacienda Iguana is basically a quiet place were relaxation and ocean bound pursuits top people daily to-do’s. There are always lots of waves (and fish) to catch and the mile long stretch of soft white sand never grows old.
Dry land activities include day trips to local attractions such as Granada, Ometepe and San Juan del Sur. These trips offer opportunities for cultural as well as physical adventures: Granada is a UNESCO World Heritage site; Ometepe is one of the most startling and biodiverse places on the planet; San Juan del Sur was the original tourist capital of the country and at just over an hour from Villa Guanamar is a fun way to while away an afternoon.
Nearby there are a variety of hikes where you are likely to see all manner of exotic wildlife. Several local farmers have opened up the opportunity for us to show guests local farming techniques & explore that aspect of Nicaraguan culture. A horseback ride along the beach at sunset is a memorable way to end the day.
