Granada driver guide

My wife and I will arrive in Managua Jan 20 and need to travel to Granada for a few days and then San Juan del Sur for a few more returning to Managua Jan 27. We want to hire an English speaking driver guide (sadly we only speak English). Any and all suggestions and contacts would be appreciated.

I would recommend to hire a transportation which include a Spanish speaking driver and hire a Guide, In this case the guide will pay attention to you and not to the road, there as been accidents like this before so this is why most if not all of the tour companies have a driver and a guide.

My idea.

My husband and I just got back from a trip to Nicaragua. One of our highlights was a full day private tour from Granada with Francisco Munguia. He took us to Massaya Volcano, the handicraft market, Catarina (white city) for lunch, and San Juan d'Oriente to see where pottery is made. He is a wonderful young man, knowledgeable, intelligent, and speaks perfect english. He recently graduated from university with a major in tourism. He will also recommend other tours and is very reasonably priced. He brings his own driver, so as the other people said, he could concentrate on us. He can be contacted through email - fm.tourguide@gmail.com or called at (505) 8811-1751. (He's also on Facebook)

We were in Managua/Granada in Jan 2014. We used English speaking Jorge Selva Gutierrez as a guide and transport,between Managua/Granada. He was fantastic. Well spoken, friendly and informed. He offers all the tours cheaper than the tour companies.

jlsg69pelon@hotmail.com or ask the hotel to phone him for you at 8442-6393.

He probably won't remember us, but tell him Bob and Tami, from Plaza Colon sent you.
