We did this tour from Ocotal. We have booked this trip from USA thru 'Alex on the Beach'. We realized that Alex.......is a broker and he charged us $150/person, out of which he took $25 deposit thru credit card right away. Apparently that went to him and the tour people(Plus Papagayo) collected the rest of money on the tour day.... More

We took this tour to Nicaragua as a day trip from Costa Rica. It was a long, but fantastic, day with a really neat surprise from the tour guide at the end of the trip. The guide made getting through the checkpoints at the border fairly painless and we saw so many interesting things including an active volcano, a crater... More

Was in Tamarindo, Costa Rica and booked a day trip to Nicaragua. The tour was EXCELLENT. It started around 4:30am and ended at 9:30pm. Saw Monbacho Active Volcano, Boat tour of islands on Lake Nicaragua, Granada, and shopping. We never stayed long at any place, but long enough to see it and enjoy it. The guide (forgot his name) and... More

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... More

Nicaragua is a fascinating contrast to Costa Rica, a socialist republic much less developed from a tourism infrastructure standpoint, and much less expensive. Be prepared, this is a very long and tiring day, but well worth your time if you like to get off the beaten path. The volcanic scenery is beautiful, the markets and food good, and the colonial...
