We had two tours through Macua Tours on our trip and both were excellent. Our first was to Granada with Edwin and the second was to Ometepe Island with Erick. Both guides were very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. We also had someone provide transportation to and from these places, and that service was great also. Our experience with Macua Tours... More

Edwin Ruiz was an outstanding guide, booked for us through Two Brothers Surf Resort. His knowledge of local history, politics & culture ensured we grasped a better understanding of Nicaragua as a nation, rather than just a 'war' country. Edwin asked for our input (likes/dislikes) in the morning and suggested compatible activities for the day. In the absence of guides,... More

There were 12 of us and we had a fabulous day...saw a lot more sights then most cruise ship tours. The Masaya Volcano was... More

Macua Tours was an outstanding company to work with when planning a tour from a cruise port. Edwin provided us with a very descriptive tour and was able to work around our time restraints and had us back at the port on time. Our guide was excellent and provided us with a vast amount of information about Nicaragua and its... More

Our family of two parents and one 21 year old took this tour when the Island Princess docked there in late December. We had been encouraged to join the tour by a fellow cruise ship passenger to whom we are indebted because the tour was outstanding. We were a bit anxious about a private tour given the long distances to... More

We took a Macua group tour of Nicaragua when our cruise ship stopped in San Juan del Sur for the day. There were about 12 people on our tour. Edwin was an excellent tour guide. We didn't have much time, but he took us to see many Nicaraguan highlights, including a walking tour of Granada, an active volcano, and a... More

My husband and I recently took this tour during a cruise which stopped in San Juan dell Sur. This tour with Edwin Ruiz was the highlight of the entire cruise. First, it was extremely easy to make our arrangements via email with Edwin and we found this 'ease-of-doing-business' again in his attention to detail in everything we saw/did on the... More

We had no plans to go to Nicaragua during our 1 week vacation in Costa Rica. So glad we changed our minds, the one day visit was not enough to this beautiful country. The other reviews say it all, our day with Edwin was very educational and enjoyable. We were meant by him at the border where he did all... More

I hired Macua and Edwin to transfer my friends and I from the airport in Costa Rica, to our hotel locations in San Juan del Sur and Guanacaste and then a return to the airport. Everything with Macua and Edwin was as advertised. Edwin requested 50% of the Airport>San Juan Del Sur transfer up front via Pay Pal. I was,... More
