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!

The tour was good overall except for one glitch. On our way to Granada, we stoppd in Massai and realised that a festival was taking place later on that day. We proceded to Granada and our tour guide told us that there is a visit to 2 museums on the program. We suggested that instead of the museums, we would rather go back to Massai to see the festival which is 10 or 15 minutes away. The guide came back to us saying that he spoke with the owner and he asked us to pay for the gas in order to go back to Massai.. I gave him $20 but I found it to be of poor judgement. The gas woul cost only $5 and since we don't want to go to the museums in Granada, that should make out for it.
