Solentiname Tours has been devoted to sustainable tourism since it was founded in 1999. We developed our office procedures, trained our guides, and designed the itinerary of each tour to be in harmony with our commitment to sustainability. 

We’ve created and implemented a sustainable tourism concept on the 36 islands of the Solentiname archipelago in Lake Nicaragua that benefits 1,000 locals and 120 families. Our concept expanded to a national level that involves 12 private nature reserves, 18 Rainforest Alliance CertifiedTM hotels or lodges and 29 “Puntos de Vida”, which are the foundation of the Nicaragua Tourist Map – Sustainable Traveling brochure, created and published by Solentiname in 2012. Through seminars and training, we help strengthen local identifies, involve previously excluded groups, create new jobs, and contribute to the protection of fragile ecosystems and biodiversity.

In 2013, we received an award from Grupo Excelencias in Spain.
