What You Can Expect
This was a trip that quite honestly nobody wanted my son and I to go on because they were afraid that it was dangerous for us to go to Nicaragua, but I must say I am glad I went ahead anyway and did it because it was the highlight of our trip. Nicaragua was a beautiful country filled with lots of old beautiful buildings and historically has a lot for you to see and enjoy. We never felt unsafe or afraid to walk around even by ourselves and not with the group. It is definitely a place that you should see if you get the opportunity because it's very close and definitely worth the money. Hopefully you will be as lucky as we were to have marc as your tour guide. He was very personable and knowledgeable about not only Nicaragua but Costa Rica as well. We learned a lot of both of these countries history from him. Make sure you bring your cameras because there is so much that you will want to capture and share with everyone when you go home.
I enjoyed this trip a lot. The ride to Nicaragua wasn't bad. You have a few check points, so that breaks up the drive. Breakfast wasn't anything to brag about. But the tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. The towns we explored were beautiful. Lunch could of been better as well. They claimed to have chicken fajitas, which 13 of the 16 of us ordered. When the food came out we saw it was chicken fingers, none of us were happy with that. The tour guide said they call fingers fajitas. So be aware of that when ordering lunch. I felt safe the whole trip. And at the end they gave us a cute souvenir. Do this tour!
