Your friendly guide will greet you at the pier. Board air-conditioned transport for a short drive to the 300-year-old farm estate of Cortijo El Rosario, famous throughout Central America for the pure-breed Spaniard & Lusitanian Equestrian Show. You will have the rare opportunity here to observe some of the most impressive horses in the world. Watch the training exercises that are performed daily to discipline the horses and riders. Every move is carefully narrated and explained.
From the Caballerizas (main stables), you will be transported in an antique farmer's truck to La Palapa where a traditional Nicaraguan lunch will be served consisting of chicken, beef, pork, bananas, beans and tortillas. A traditional folkloric dance with marimba will entertain you. The estate farmhouse, surrounded by gardens and tropical flowers, is reflective of the gentile aspect of Nicaraguan life.
You will learn the history of the estate and of the Coen family -- the owners of the property -- in a truly remarkable setting. Explore the grounds, either on foot or by carriage.
Use your free time to visit the souvenir shop, train station, and carriage area before you return to the port.
