Why travel with SCSRN?
Because of our close ties to San Ramón, we have special relationships with people in all walks of life who help make our cultural immersion ecotours meaningful and relevant to our visitors. Our typical 8-day cultural immersion ecotour is designed to allow you to see the world through the eyes of Nicaraguans, while always putting first our values of mutual respect and dignity. We also plan extra excursions to other parts of Nicaragua, from colonial cities to beaches and volcanoes! We tailor each ecotour to the needs and interests of each group with the goal of helping you connect with the people of San Ramón and Nicaraguan life. Check out this sample itinerary to get a feel for what your trip would be like.
