Good trip but very long.

Nice trip you get to admire the beauty of Nicaragua. Volcano Masaya was amazing. Once in a lifetime experience. We were promised to be back at the hotel by 8:30 but didn't get... read more

We bought this Nicaragua tour trough Alan Vega, Papagayo tours. I will write a detailed incounter with this entitity in a separate report. We were picked up from hotel at 5 am, waited an hour at the parking lot of the gas station for another group to come and to change to the tour bus. Per brouchure, the tour guide... More

HORRIBLE!!!! HORRIBLE!!! This was a 19 hour mess. We were transported through 7 different vehicles and it was pure unsafe chaos. The best part...main bus broke down, started smoking in the cabin, and the crew locked us inside!! The tour guide would not inform us of where we were going and would switch the itinerary half way down the road.... More

My friend and I booked tours for the rainforest and niceragua tours. We were told to be waiting at 7 am for the rainforest. . We waited and hour. No one picked us up. We went into town later. They were there at 5 am! And thought we were going to Nicaragua that day. We were assured that the Nicaragua... More

We opted to do the two day trip and were really pleased we did. Schedule was as other reviewers have stated. Lunch was really good. My partner had a massive chicken and beef kebab and said it was one of his favourite meals. The volcano was amazing, I had no idea we would be at the top of it looking... More

The Nicaragua tour is definitely worth the time & money. Seeing an active volcano is a mind blowing experience that I'll never forget! The tour is a full day and I mean 5:00 am to possibly 10:00 pm commitment, but it is truly worth it. So many beautiful sites, wonderful food & lots of information about the country of Nicaragua....

We took this trip prepared for a very long day as we left the hotel at 5am. After stopping for breakfast in Liberia we went to the border. The process was straightforward but quite slow (although better than we've experienced elsewhere). The horse and carriage drive around Granada was lovely and personally we would have welcomed the opportunity to spend... More

We went on the Nicaragua day tour, with Uriel as our guide. He was great, super friendly, knowledgeable and good at taking photos! We stopped off at La Cruz for a traditional Costa Rican breakfast with an incredible view, before heading to cross the border. The crossing involved 4 security/military checks, which we found quite interesting. First stop in Nicaragua... More

Wow, what a day! I would highly recommend this company if you are planning on visiting Nicaragua during your Costa Rica trip. Uriel was our guide and D was our driver and they were amazing! Our day began eating an authentic breakfast overlooking the most beautiful vista of the Pacific. Then the adventure began. I would ONLY suggest visiting Nicaragua... More

The day trip to Nicaragua was amazing. An early morning departure was worth the sights you saw. It was a bit foggy early on so the lake was ok. Breakfast was ok, the view was beautiful. The volcano was spectacular! Grenada was also pretty to see. We didn't enjoy the marketplace because an orange shirt person was assigned to "take... More
