This was a full day but one of our favorite excursions. I wish we could have more time to shop at Crater Lake but I understand the time limitations.

Full day tour to Nicaragua was amazing! We saw magma bubbling inside the crater of an active volcano, shopped at the market, and toured the colorful town of Granada. They provided us two meals, lunch was delicious! The only downside of the tour was all the check stops getting into Nicaragua but that has nothing to do with the tour and didn't take away from it at all! Highly recommended!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

Everything was more than expected! The tour expert was so informative and had such great humor. It was a long day tour but definitely worth it!

This tour, especially the guide Eddie, was amazing. While it involved a lot of time in the car it was worth it; as we got to see alot in a short time!

3 star rating: Worth doing February 2017

While the sites and experiences are really good, the day is very long and you spend a lot of time on the bus. We left our hotel at 4 a.m and didn't return until 11 pm schedule said 8:30 return. Our last meal was at 2 so it made for a very long day. The border was an experience all in itself taking up at least an hour each way. Seeing the different volcanoes was a great experience and 1 that we had never had, Granada was good but I would have liked to spend 2 or 3 more hours there. The best part was a boat trip on Lake Nicaragua to see the monkeys. The ride was beautiful. I would recommend the trip but only if you fully understand just how long it is and how much time you will spend cooped up. Food was very good and Edwardo our tour guide was the best- easy to understand, informative and funny, I would highly recommend him. Final thought bring toilet paper and expect to pay to use the restrooms.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2017

If you really want to go Nicaragua and this was the only way to get there, then do this tour, otherwise what they don't tell you that we got on the bus @ 4:30 am in the morning and got back to our hotel in Tamarindo at 11:30 pm. That's a really long day. They also don't tell you what a hassle and how time consuming it is to get into the country. After waiting to get into the country at the border, we had another 4 military checkpoints - this is a military rule country. We did not see the 1st site - volcanic lake until 11 am. The volcanic lake and magna from the active Masaya Volcano was cool and lunch was good. Then when we got to Granada, if you wanted a carriage ride, that was extra money. We didn't take it and it felt like we were chipped. Also, every stop felt like we were rushed. The tour I feel would have been better if we didn't try to do so much in one day. Concentrate of one area and spend time doing that instead of trying to do so much and spending a great deal of time in a bus.
