Nicaragua
Livin' Tranquilo

The South Pacific of Nicaragua is your haven for surf, beach parties and the island sanctuary of Ometepe. Add to that the low cost of living and you have yourself a perfect 10-day escape to Central America’s hottest destination! On top of having some of the best breaks and places to learn how to catch a wave, the funky surf town of San Juan del Sur is home to the infamous Sunday Funday Pool Crawl! You’ll also get to experience either Mag Rock, with its incredible cliff-top sunsets and huge choice of waves, or Free & Easy’s very own Casa Horizon Surf Retreat on the private beach haven that is Playa Escameca. You’ll then leave the sand behind for the peaceful jungle oasis on the volcano island of Ometepe. Visit the South Pacific of Nicaragua and you’ll be saying ‘Diacachimba Amigos!’ in no time!

San Juan del Sur

The stunning half-moon cove that San Juan del Sur is built around frames one of the coolest surf towns you're sure to ever experience. Old colonial buildings, a huge boardwalk of beachside bars and restaurants, and an all around laid-back surfer vibe are all part of the reason why being in San Juan is so awesome. The host town of our massive Nicaragua New Years trip each year and a staple on all of our Nicaragua trips, San Juan del Sur is the perfect place to have wicked beach days and wild party nights. The gateway to a huge score of amazing surf beaches all within a short drive from town makes San Juan an ideal destination for any surfer or beach lover and the town's ability to turn it up at night and host some of the best parties on the travel scene makes it so the fun never ends! Consistently good weather, endless cheap rum and very good waves… what more could you ask for?

Escameca

Arguably one of the nicest beaches in Central America, you won't find Playa Escameca in any travel books…that's because this spot is uniquely Free & Easy! This incredible stretch of beach is hidden way south on Nicaragua's Pacific coast, almost in Costa Rica, and boasts not only gorgeous scenery but also some seriously gnarly surfing conditions that you can enjoy all to yourself. Because the best part about Playa Escameca is that there's nothing there - no hotels, no bars, no other people! There's just the gorgeous bungalow style Casa Horizon: our very own FnEZ-built retreat. Days in Escameca can be spent in so many amazing ways. Whether you're simply soaking in the serene beauty of the surroundings, grabbing a surfboard and catching some waves right in front of the lodge, practicing yoga, swaying lazily in a hammock, or kicking back with some cervezas next to a beach fire, you won't find anywhere more different from your everyday life. Here you can do as you like and experience the true freedom of getting away from it all.

Mag Rock

Magnific Rock (or Mag Rock as it’s known to most) is home to some of the best surf break in all of Nicaragua. No joke, it’s incredible! When you wake up in the morning and look out over the ocean you can see four different breaks happening, and if that doesn’t get you itching to grab your board and dive in, we don’t know what will. Our accommodations are set up on a point that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, so not only are you guaranteed killer surf, but the awe-inspiring sunsets will blow your mind. Be prepared for a real-life watercolour sky of pinks and oranges every night as the sun meets the ocean. And after a full day of crushing out the best waves in Nicaragua, there’s nothing like chilling in the pool with an ice-cold Toña and the best view around. From yoga, to surfing, booze cruisin’ and having a grand old time down on the beach, we guarantee that you’ll be begging us not to leave Mag Rock.

Isla de Ometepe

Rising from the depths of the massive Lake Nicaragua is the majestic pyramid-like Concepción volcano and connected to it by a thin strip of land is the smaller but equally impressive Maderas volcano forming Isla de Ometepe, a twin-volcano island that is an amazing sight to behold and a delightfully relaxed place to visit. The island is filled with lush jungle vegetation and nice beaches that border the fresh water lake that stretches out like an ocean as far as the eye can see. The island's perfect soil makes it an ideal home for tons of small farms and plantations that grow about everything possible and make for some tasty and organic food options. Kayaking down rivers, hiking to waterfalls and relaxing in natural water springs only add to the beautiful experience of travelling to Isla de Ometepe.

Kick-off your epic 10-day Colombian adventure in a cabaña right on Costeño Beach tucked away on the outside of Tayrona National Park and bustling with nature. If you’ve had your fill of the beach there’s the option to hop onto a motorbike and head into Tayrona National Park for a jungle trek. From there we head to Polamino, where we stay in tiki huts for two nights. As the cherry on top of this trip, we finish off in the bright city of Cartagena. Here you can eat delicious Colombian food to your heart's content, experience the epic nightlife, explore the walled city, and so much more!

Costeño Beach

With a great backpacker community, this stop on our epic trip is chill, fun, and unforgettable. Costeno may be a bit off the beaten path with only a few huts on the beach but… that’s how we like it! This is such a Free & Easy location, we had to share it with you. This is your daydream come to life and it’s a great place to disconnect for a few days and leave the internet behind. Days here will be filled with beach fires, beach bars, hammocks, warm Caribbean air, sipping on coconuts, and super fun activities like river tubing and yoga on the beach! The nights will be filled with unique bars, laughter, great friends, and amazing memories. This place is what it’s all about: slowing down, taking it all in, and truly enjoying life! Plus, you’ll have your new FnEZ family to share it with.

Palomino

Palomino is a small town tucked away on the northern shore of the Caribbean, right between the ocean and the primary rainforest. On top of its small town artisan vibes and beautiful scenery, Palomino is also known for the Palomino River (where it gets its name!).

This stunning river starts far back in the Colombian mountains of Los Sierra, to the tropical rainforest, and finally, it empties into the Caribbean Sea. This river was part of creating the legend of El Dorado and the Lost City of Gold due to all the sparkling gemstones that cover the bottom of the river. This creates a sparkly experience while you float down the river. 

We stay at a cool hostel that is only a three-minute walk from the beach and has a full bar, kitchen, and swimming pool.

Cartagena

Our final stop on this trip is Cartagena! Last but definitely not least, this huge port town on the Caribbean is jutting out into the ocean, creating a unique cityscape that will keep you exploring until the last second. Are you into architecture? There are super cool buildings, amazing castles to check out, and fun street walks. Are you into food and nightlife? There are a ton of fun funky bars, cafes, and restaurants to explore. Are you just into being in Colombia and soaking it all in? Yup, you can you do that here too. This is the perfect place to get your final taste of the Colombian lifestyle, cuisine, and nightlife since it has the best of all of it! You’ll spend your days here wondering if this was all a dream, wishing you could stay forever!

Epic Experiences you will have on this adventure

Hike The Cristo De la Misericordia Viewpoint

The Christ of Mercy, or Cristo De La Misericordia, is the iconic statue overlooking the San Juan del Sur bay. But it's way more than that...it offers an incredible 360 degree view of the entire town and south pacific! At sunset, it's one of the most incredible views you will come across. Not only that, but at over 26m high, this Jesus statue is the largest statue of Christ in all of Central America and one of the largest in the world. Grab your travel buddies, a water (and probably a beer too) and hit the slope. You might find yourself enjoying the best view of your life! *hike, admission fee included in price

Swim Through Phosphorescence

Phosphorescence (or bioluminescence) is the emission of light created by a variety of tiny, almost microscopic creatures as a defence mechanism. Perhaps the most fascinating display of this phenomenon takes place in the ocean when thousands of bioluminescent plankton scintillate a beautiful blue-green glow that brightens as the plankton are agitated. They can be stimulated by anything from crashing waves to moving boats or from people playing in the water! This opportunity to feel like you're creating magic occurs at times in almost every country we travel to and sometimes the plankton arrive in a magnificent density, creating some of the most unforgettable nights on our trips – most notably in Lao Liang and Koh Ang Thong in Thailand, but also along the Pacific Coast of Central America. So just because the sun has set doesn’t always mean the fun in the water is over! Always be sure to take a few steps into shore and check if you may have the opportunity to swim through phosphorescence because it's one of the most fun and beautiful experiences you may ever have!

Tubing on a Rainforest River

This incredible activity is a must do. That’s why it’s included on your trip! Woohoo! On this day trip, we’ll see the awesome rainforest that makes Colombia so unique. So grab your TFF, a few cold ones, and get ready for a chill afternoon floating down the river! You’ll be floating through jungle landscapes with prehistoric-like rock formations. Take in the view and just be… with a drink in your hand and your friends all around you! Plus, the float ends at a gorgeous beach on the Caribbean. We’ll spend a few hours floating under a canopy of trees, with nothing but sunshine, the sounds of birds, and your new FnEZ Family to keep you company. The river runs into the Caribbean, so we’ll stop at a beach and check out a local BBQ restaurant for some great food and a couple drinks to carry us into the night! From reeds to waves, this day is nothing short of adventurous. With FnEZ, you’re always getting the best bang for your buck, and you’re always getting the best activities available! What more could you ask for? Join us in Colombia for 20 days of more adventures like this one!

Take a mud bath in an active volcano

Take a mud bath in an active volcano: this is for real! At FnEZ we’re always looking for unique experiences, and we think we nailed this one! El Totumo Mud Volcano is located about 45 minutes outside of Cartagena so naturally it makes sense that we will stop in for a quick splash on our way by. The small 49 foot Volcano was once full of lava, but is now full of warm mud! We’ll take the quick stroll up the side of the Volcano and hop in! Plus, you can opt in for a massage while in the volcano! If you'd rather just float in the mud and absorb the wild feeling that’s totally cool too. If you’re looking for a true Colombian experience this is it, and it boasts some amazing lakeside views of the beautiful Santa Catalina region. Let the minerals and revitalization of a natural mud bath take over and once you’ve finished you can walk just a minute to the nearby lake and rinse off. It is said that the mud has anti-aging properties, so take your time and soak it all up!

Experience Colombian Nightlife

A trip to Colombia is not complete without letting loose and enjoying some of the nightlife! The cities that book end our trip, Medellin and Cartagena, both offer unforgettable experiences. Nightlife in Colombia has a unique Latin flare that is unlike anywhere in the Americas. All over the country, bars offer vibrant nightlife with amazing food and drinks, and the dancing will keep you grooving until the wee hours of the morning. While you’re out, you have to try some locally brewed beer, and of course, the rum! Famous for their rum, Colombia even has whole bars dedicated to the local brew! In Cartagena, try out some of their cocktail bars, focused on perfecting their unique recipes. In Medellin, just grab your favourite drink and hit the streets! It’s hard to explain, you have to see it to believe it, but the colourful streets are filled with happy people, all evening long, enjoying food, drinks, and a uniquely vibrant social atmosphere. You’ll see street performers, eat fresh street food, and join people dancing everywhere! So if you’re looking for a good time, join us in Colombia, and we’ll show you around!

Explore Cartagena

It becomes clear upon arrival why the colonial city of Cartagena is an essential stop while in Colombia as you’re hit with the colourful streets lined with street performers, food carts, amazing restaurants, and cocktail bars. Also the architecture is awesome, you feel like you’ve stepped into a piece of European explorer past, you can sense the history that exists in the ancient buildings and streets. We love it so much that we include a guided tour of the city to take it all in at a FnEZ pace. You can expect to have your mind blown while sitting atop La Popa Monastery overlooking the entire city with your group, or walking the walled old city with a fresh coconut in hand. We love Cartagena so much that we dedicate 3 days to properly explore this Caribbean gem, once you’ve arrived we dare you to take the smile off of your face!

Experience Colombian Coffee

It’s smooth, it’s aromatic, it’s bold: it’s coffee and your life wouldn’t be the same without it. Heck, a lot of things probably wouldn’t exist without it (that project you’re working on, for example). Luckily for you, Colombia is the world’s 3rd largest coffee producer! If you’re a coffee fan, you could be at the source of it all. Once you try good, Colombian coffee, you’ll find it hard to go back to your regular brew. Colombia has a reputation for having a mild, well-balanced flavour to their coffee beans, and it’s darn delicious. If you are into coffee at all, you’ll love what they’re brewing down here! If you aren’t, that’s because you haven’t been drinking this! Give it a try, trust us, you won’t be disappointed. Pour yourself a cup of joe every morning, and bring some beans home with you when you sadly have to leave this beautiful country. Just make sure you bring enough: once you share it with your friends, you’ll have them begging for more!

Practice Yoga on the Beach.

Practicing yoga on the beach in warm, tropical weather provides you with the perfect environment to learn how to find a calm within yourself and feel your mind truly relax. Listening to the sounds of the jungle and the crashing of the waves on shore only adds to the bliss of this experience. You can experience practicing yoga in a beautiful and isolated setting under the expert guidance of yoga instructors on several of our our trips. So take an hour or so out of your day to stretch, breathe and enjoy one of the best yoga sessions of your life in paradise!

Surf a Wave.

Nothing compares to the feeling you get the first time you paddle into a wave, stand up as it breaks and ride the face of it – this is the incomparable feeling of surfing. When you get it right, you'll know, because you'll be more excited than the first time you had sex and probably more addicted to it, too! Surfing is arguably the most challenging sport in the world and requires you to learn much more than physical coordination. In order to surf a wave, you'll need patience, discipline, a lack of fear and an insatiable urge to have fun. It's no coincidence that 6 of the countries that we run trips to (Indonesia, the Philippines, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Peru & Colombia) have wicked surf scenes, because there's nothing quite like it.

Go Paragliding in Colombia!

There may be no better way to get a feel for how beautiful a place is than by slowly soaring above it. As backpackers, an excursion like paragliding often gets neglected by the need for things like rum and more rum. But when you get to a place that is just so visually incredible that it defies description then we highly recommend forking out the extra dough to get yourself high and enjoy a view like none you've ever had. There are plenty of places in the world where you can paraglide, but Colombia is one of the best and when you're flying through the sky and staring down at the beauty below, it's easy to see why.

Surf a Wave

Nothing compares to the feeling you get the first time you paddle into a wave, stand up as it breaks and ride the face of it – this is the incomparable feeling of surfing. When you get it right, you'll know, because you'll be more excited than the first time you had sex and probably more addicted to it, too! Surfing is arguably the most challenging sport in the world and requires you to learn much more than physical coordination. In order to surf a wave, you'll need patience, discipline, a lack of fear and an insatiable urge to have fun. It's no coincidence that 7 of the countries that we run trips to (Indonesia, the Philippines, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Peru & South Africa) have wicked surf scenes, because there's nothing quite like it. *** PLEASE NOTE surfing is dependent on the right conditions and not always possible

Hike a Volcano in a Rare Island Biosphere

Ometepe is a two-volcano island in the middle of a freshwater lake–the only place in the world like it. The base of the smaller of the two volcanoes, Volcan Maderas, is right near our accommodations and can make for a great day trip. At 1394m above sea level, and through a combination of diverse rainforest and tropical environments, it isn’t for the faint of heart. But you will feel like Indiana Jones as you clamber up large rocks, through vines and spend the day in awe of the rare island biosphere! If long hikes aren’t your thing your Free & Easy trip leaders can also organize horseback riding up to a waterfall along the other side of the volcano, or a kayak tour through the river mouth between both volcanoes! Regardless of your choice of adventure, keep your eyes open for exotic birds, monkeys and wider than normal smiles!

Catch a Fish and Eat It, Too

We get so many people who come on our trips that say they don't like seafood and won't eat it - usually, they're not from a coastal town. So when we serve up a fresh barracuda or tuna or some other tasty fish that the fisherman caught that morning and we convince them to give it a try, the first thing they say (with a satisfied smile) is that this doesn't taste like the seafood they've tried. There's just no getting around it, fish is meant to be eaten fresh! And the only thing tastier than a fresh fish is one that you caught, too! Catching the fish that you eat used to be a part of life and still is in many parts of the world, however, more and more people are buying from the commercial fishing industry which is unsustainable and is destroying the ocean's eco-system. We offer the option to go fishing on nearly all of our trips with friendly, local fisherman that show you their tricks - it's an experience that not only teaches you the importance of fishing but is also a hell of a good time: on a boat, with friends, with beer, in the sun, drifting down a tropical coastline… 'nuff said!

See Baby Turtles Hatch

Seeing streams of baby sea turtles burst through the sand on a tropical beach and scramble for the ocean is an incredible sight and is only possible on a few beaches in the world. Sea turtles have an astounding sense of radar and always return to the same beach they were born on to lay their eggs and two of these beaches are located in Nicaragua and Costa Rica and we visit both of them on our Central American adventures. The best time to see baby sea turtles hatch is at night around a full moon as the light from the moon guides the near-blind babies to the shore to catch a wave out to sea and the darkness helps protect them from predators. And if you’re lucky you may also see a full-size sea turtle ride a wave into shore, dig a deep hole on the beach and lay her eggs! *NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY IS SEASONAL FROM JULY TO FEBRUARY

Practice Yoga on the Beach

Practicing yoga on the beach in warm, tropical weather provides you with the perfect environment to learn how to find a calm within yourself and feel your mind truly relax. Listening to the sounds of the jungle and the crashing of the waves on shore only adds to the bliss of this experience. You can experience practicing yoga in a beautiful and isolated setting under the expert guidance of yoga instructors on several of our our trips. So take an hour or so out of your day to stretch, breathe and enjoy one of the best yoga sessions of your life in paradise!

Have a Sunday Funday

Beers, babes, beats… tasty shots, infinite rum, super soakers full of booze… tropical weather, amazing views, and a pool crawl - together that spells Sunday Funday! Experience the best day of the week in proper Nica fashion with the legendary Sunday Funday pool crawl, taking you to the best party spots around the infamous surf town of San Juan del Sur all day. Each spot has the same thing in common, a nice refreshing pool to take a dip in and dance around, wicked music pumping, and tons of drinks flowing! With hundreds of rowdy young travellers attending each Sunday, this event has grown into one of the best parties in Central America and why not, because who doesn’t love to have fun on Sunday? Get weird, get freaky, get wet, get wasted, do whatever you want because this party starts early and goes as late as you want it to go!

Pacific Coast Booze-Cruise!

Nicaragua's southwest coast is arguably Central America's nicest stretch of beaches. With one massive sprawling beach after another framed by rocky cliffs and fascinating fauna from cacti to palm trees, seeing as much of this coast as possible is must for any visitor to Nicaragua. Unfortunately, the coastal roads in Nicaragua are not very accessible to say the least and so really the best way to see all these beaches is by sailing the open sea! Boarding a catamaran sailboat stocked with ceviche, guacamole and as much beer and rum as possible is the way we like to do it to fully enjoy spending the day gawking at the stunning natural setting while at the same time, throwing down and having a party fit for such a glorious sailing experience. Oh and we almost forgot to mention the wicked surf breaks at almost all of these beaches, so there's always the option of tossing the board in and paddling into some gnarly sets before continuing on our way. Some crazy stuff tends to go down on this adventure as it's always a highlight of the trip, but you'll just have to experience it for yourself to see what's possible when you disembark into the Nicaragua's pacific coast with an arsenal of friends armed with all the makings for an epic good time!
