🏝️ Zu El Castillo
The largest town on the river San Juan, El Castillo is home to the Indio Maíz Reserve – one of the best preserved natural spaces in Nicaragua, and the best place for wildlife!
El Castillo is the perfect base for exploring the river. All the tours into the Indio Maíz Reserve start and end in El Castillo.
This town is full of rich history, and it used to be very strategic during the Spanish colonisation. You can learn the history by going to the museum, as well as by speaking to the locals.
