My family and I booked a trip to Nicaragua through another tour company who contracts with Plus to take large groups into Nicaragua. While the trip is very long and starts early in the morning, it is completely worth your time.
We were able to walk right up to the crater of an active volcano, ride a boat and look at beautiful homes and monkeys on Lake Nicaragua, shop in the Masaya market and walk around the beautiful colonial town of Granada.
Our guide was Eric, who was top notch. Eric grew up in Nicaragua and knew so much history of the country and was very passionate about his homeland. All through the trip he explained different things about where we were and the history behind the areas.
I was amazed at how different Nicaragua was from Costa Rica. First, surprisingly the roads were much smoother and better in Nicaragua than Costa Rica. Things in Nicaragua are much cheaper and much less developed.
The scenery of the country was absolutely beautiful and the old colonial towns were something to behold.
My 9 year old especially liked walking to the crater of the Masaya Volcano and the fact that he got 4 new stamps in his passport on the trip.
We talked to several people in our resort who did the Nicaragua trip, but we were the only ones who got a special gift from our tour company. Right before you cross the border Plus tours presents you with a personalized gift. I thought this was an extra special touch and something I'll remember and cherish from my trip into Nicaragua.
