My bf and I had an AMAZING time with Edgar, our tour guide! He was really knowledgeable and patient and gave us a great tour of the volcano. Even stopped to eat traditional Nicaraguan food with us on the way back home. The ziplining was also VERY fun! We can and #39;t wait to go back and explore more!
We had a great time. Thank you to Roy for driving and to Alex for being a great tour guide.
The tour is definitely worth doing. Be prepared for a strenuous hike for those that don't do it on a normal basis. It took about 45 mins to get to the top. And out guide was helpful each step of the way. Even ensured we got some awesome pictures along the way. It rained the day before our tour, which proved to make a less than desirable ride down. The sand has washed away from the rain, so it was mostly rocks. We would only go about 10 yards before the rocks would over take the board and bring you to a halt. Took us almost 10 mins to get down, and it was very frustrating. Cause there's no climbing back to the top to do it again. It's one and done. But I place fault only on mother nature and not the tour or the guide. Hopefully you will be able to plan around the rain, or just go during their dry season. But I would recommend everyone do it.
Wow, what an experience! Rugged natural beauty, an excellent, informed, fun guide, and a sled ride down a volcano! Do not miss this!
The tour guide was awesome and it was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. It is a steep climb though so be prepared.

Senor Jose was outstanding. He took very good care of all of us. He was very patient and knowledgeable and took great care to answer all in details. Thanks a lot for showing your beautiful country to us.
Doing what: Day Trip to Masaya and Granada from Managua
The hike up the volcano was much more difficult than I expected but boarding down was definitely a unique experience.
Managua it was not that great but once you get to Leon masaya and granada the history,art and the people friendly great
Every needs to experience the amazing site and thrill
This tour was amazing!
The lake part was excellent and we enjoyed Granada as it has retained it's older look. Edgar was very good for both trips.
Volcano boarding was a "must" on my Nicaragua itinerary and this excursion did not disappoint. I'm so glad the tour started so early in the morning because I would not have wanted to climb Cerro Negro in the afternoon heat. Our driver and guide were very friendly and knowledgeable. The climb took about an hour--it was definitely more challenging than I expected. The views along the way were incredible and the ride down was so much fun. Both my mom and myself will recommend this to anyone wanting to do something different, fun, and adventurous while on vacation!
The tour was absolutely wonderful. Our tour guide, Erick, was not only friendly but very knowledgeable about the history of the city. This was very impressive. Being history buffs, we found this quite interesting. The city itself is beautiful and again, Erick, put us at ease in our new surroundings. The boat ride was of course peaceful and gorgeous. Erick, again amazed us by courting the monkeys and by surprising wifey with a flower that grew inside a banana shaped plant hanging from a tree. Amazing!!
Our driver Milton from Servitours Nicaragua was awesome! Milton met us right outside of baggage with a sign with our names on it. It put our minds at ease. Everything went so smoothly! The ride to Montelimar beach is breathtaking!
A few days before we left for our trip, Viator recommended we contact Servi-tours Nicaragua (the local transfer/tour company) to confirm the times of our transfers. Servi-tours responded right away and honored our request to be pick up at a certain time at the hotel and dropped us off at our next hotel. Milton was our driver and was right on time. Such a great guy! We will definitely be using Servi-tours again on our next trip to Nicaragua!
amazing servitours local operator was amazing the tour guide was very good, knew every detail about the tour, and was very professional, I have done tours in many countries with different operators and I am amaze to say in this little corner of central America I found the best tour operators ever. thank you for a lifetime experience.
We could not have been MORE pleased with this tour! Our guide Erick was excellent, so informative, spoke both languages to perfection, and knew the answer to every question we asked. The city and sights were beautiful and interesting, lunch was at a charming garden restaurant, and the boat tour so fun and relaxing - and we saw more than a dozen species of herons, kingfishers, and other birds. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
Volcano was amazing, and our guide Erick told us all about its history, both in English and in Spanish. The view from Catarina was stupendous, and we shared it with loads of school-kids on an outing, so much fun! We found wonderful and CHEAP souvenirs for everyone in San Juan de Oriente, enjoyed our lunch in the Masaya market (after some more shopping!) , and could not have been more pleased with our tour. Would recommend this to EVERYONE!
Doing what: Masaya and Catarina Day Trip from Managua
Our 5 day Nicaraguan tour was wonderful! The guides (Martin and Juan Carlos) were both great! They were very friendly and knowledgeable. All guides and drivers were always on time. Hotels were excellent. The hotels in Leon and Granada were both located right next to the plazas in the middle of town. The boat/kayak trip on Lake Nicaragua was very scenic. We visited a private island with a tame pet monkey!The local vendor for viator was also able to provide us with a car and driver for our first day there in order to travel to the region of Boaco. It was a great side trip. Although it is not as popular a destination as Costa Rica, it is very interesting and worth visiting. Purchased gallon sized bottles of purified water in order to refill smaller bottles. You will go through a lot of water! We highly recommend this trip!
Good combination with culture (Granada) and nature (Lake Nicaragua). Very good guide with perfecte knowledges of the local animals
