I booked my trip through TAM Vacations at RIU Palace. I didn't know I was being sent with a different company but I didn't think it was a big deal. Well I was wrong. The vechcile that showed up was a mini van and very old. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and was an unpleasant ride. The driver seemed to... More

Took a full day tour from playa del coco, Costa Rica. The tour had a good mix of activities including Masaya Volcano, boat ride on lake Nicaragua, and Granada. We wished for a little more time at a couple of stops, but also were aware that this was a very long day already. Breakfast and lunch were included, and quite... More

We hired their service to transport us from Liberia to our hotel in Granada, Nicaragua. It was very easy to communicate and schedule everything via email. They promptly met us at the time and location we requested with a comfortable bus. There was a driver and another help. I'm really glad we hired them to help us through the border... More

A friend and I took the day trip tour to Nicaragua from near the town of Tamarindo in Costa Rica. It was a 17 hour day, but completely worth it! Our tour guides (Steven from Costa Rica and David from Nicaragua) were incredible. They were knowledgable and fun! Our safety and enjoyment were their main priority. I appreciated the amount...

The good: breakfast at the first stop is a typical meal and tasty, during the crossing the boarder process tour guide informs you of everything that is happening. Boat ride on the lake was a lot of fun. Was neat seeing the differences in houses and monkey island. The meal at the Masaya market was delicious, I had the pork!... More

It was an uncomfortable long, bumpy and tedious ride north on Highway 1 - sometimes behind horses, donkeys, bikes, etc. driving from Costa Rica to Nicaragua. What isn't explained is that the total time you are out of the vehicle is about five hours - but it's a 18 hour day / night (take FOOD!! and water). We were the... More

You certainly get to do all of the things listed in the description. Those things rate anywhere from pretty good to definitely neat. The problem with this trip is everything not listed in the description. Short version: 16 hour tour. About 4-5 hours of stops and attractions. 10-12 hours spent JUST TO TRAVEL. Long version: My wife and I left... More

This is a must do trip for any traveller. Professionally conducted by the guide and safely driven to and from. Travellers need to know well in advance that a copy of their vacation booking is required along with their Passports. I can do this tour again.

This is a long tour, 5AM - 9:00PM but worth it! We were picked up from our hotel early morning, a little late but hey it's ok, not that big of a deal. We were driven to a breakfast spot where we met up with others that will be on our tour. Breakfast was quite delicious. At this time our... More
