We had nothing but a pleasurable experience with them. You are forewarned that it is a long day so suck it up you are on vacation. We found that in town thru the salesman was cheapest ($125 pp) We were picked up at 5am. Bused to a gas station to grab another group. Switch to a bigger bus and then... More

We had the unfortunate pleasure in using this company to go to Nicaragua. Unfortunately our original tour company were unable to travel here so we're booked with this company on our behalf. We were picked up from our hotel in a small mini bus (15mins late) and taken to a garage where we had to join a larger coach party.... More

I've seen many reviews and at first I was skeptical but now I am so glad we decided to go an the "Nicaragua One Day Tour". I am so glad that our tour sales guy Elvis in Coco Beach walked us through the whole process including the time we would spend at the border (luckily for us we didn't go... More

I agree with the other comment about how terrible was the experience with Plus papagayo tour, first, they came for us at the hotel late, then we wait for more than 3 hours in the border, and after that the bus broke down, and the guia Ulriel Martinez didn't care about us, he didn't say anything to us, we wait...

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....
