A Unique Story

From the opportunities created in 2004 when the canyon was "discovered" and 2006 when the Nicaraguan Government made it a Protected Area a group of locals created an independent informal association of guides to ensure that the small communities surrounding Somoto Canyon would benefit. From these beginnings Somoto Canyon Tours started in 2008 to develop an enterprise to assist those who live within a few kilometres of this National Monument.

Community Connection

With the particular aim of working with a group of young people in the local communities surrounding the canyon we set about the training and development of local guides to provide them with regular employment above and beyond the subsistence farming many rely on to support their families.
