Nicaragua - Corinto


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)


Asking about Nicaragua here because it doesn't have its own forum.


My ships itinerary stops at Corinto. I am wondering if anyone has advice, experience, and/or recommendations for excursions from this port. The excursions currently listed on the HAL website for the port have pretty abysmal reviews.  Hoping for some history and local cuisine.


Note: I saw that Princess has some excursions for Nicaragua, but these are for a different location (San Juan del Sur), which is far enough away from Corinto that they wouldn't be applicable.

I think these stops end up being dropped, so there might not be much to report.  EM

When you say dropped, do you think it has been a last minute thing, or updated a decent amount of time before sailing?

We've visited Corinto twice on Panama Canal cruises, once in 2017, and once in 2020, just before the pandemic.  Prior to that first visit, I'd done as much research as I could, and concluded that this port did not have much going for it and that the most interesting thing for me to do was to visit the architecturally interesting Cathedral of León, a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Given the distance from the port, and it being Nicaragua, I took a ship's tour for this.   (My wife chose to say on the ship for this port.)


I wrote about that visit in my review of that Panama Canal cruise.  You'll find it starting at comment 42 in this thread:



For our second visit to Corinto, we both got off the ship and walked around the town for a little while. 


I doubt it's on anyone's list of favorite ports.
