🏝️ Zu San Juan de Nicaragua/Greytown
Our last destination is the town at the end of the river San Juan. San Juan de Nicaragua is home to the Rama and Creole people – indigenous peoples of Nicaragua. Now brimming with culture and plenty of historical facts, this was a prime location for Spanish colonisers as they entered Nicaragua to raid and colonise the country. A fire completely destroyed this town in the 1980s. Consequently, the settlement moved to a new location and received a new name: San Juan de Nicaragua, or San Juan del Norte.
What remains of the old town (Greytown) can be explored with a local, knowledgable guide. A tour like this is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the Spanish and British conquest of Central America.
