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

I went on a Nicaragua excursion through this company with my best friend. Our trip was great. Our tour guide Hector was very friendly, personable and knowledgeable. Nicaragua is a beautiful country. Our trip included a traditional Costa Rican breakfast, lunch in Nicaragua, an active volcano, an inactive volcano, a river boat ride where we saw monkeys, souvenir shopping in... 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...

We did the day trip to Nicaragua and are so glad we did this. We woke up extremely early and were picked up in our hotel lobby at 5:45am, then we picked up other passengers. We were taken to a local restaurant that was on the way towards Liberia. We were served a breakfast and the loaded on to buses.... More

Incongruently, this day trip to Nicaragua was the highlite of my Costa Rica trip. Costa Rica was beautiful but Nicaragua was not what I had expected and our guide David was fabulous. When I was growing up, Nicaragua was on the news a lot with the Contra War that waged through the country in the 1980s and the Ollie North... More

We were picked up promptly from Villas Sol Hotel. Stopped at another hotel to pick up passengers, then stopped at another area to change out drivers. Julio was our driver to Palo Verde National Park. He was friendly, informative and patient. Palo Verde was amazing and I highly recommend (I reviewed separately). We had an excellent lunch, as part of... More

We recently traveled to Nicaragua using this tour line. I was very impressed. We were a bit skeptical because we had booked this tour with someone not from our hotel. While in Nicaragua I ended up spraining my ankle and needing to be rushed to the hospital. Not only was everyone very patient and understanding Louis stayed with my husband... More

We signed up for the Nicaragua Tour during our honeymoon in Costa Rica. With grumbling new husband at 5am pick up this tour did not disappoint. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to manage the most interesting of tourists with us. They packed into one day - breakfast, breaks (stops during a long ride), all immigration / border... More

If we had only used Plus Papagayo for our day trip, I would give them an EXCELLENT review. Unfortunately due to the nature of our airport transfer, I can't rate them any higher than average. I'll start with the bad first: We arrived in LIberia on time & I had arranged our transfer through the Coco Beach Hotel so I... More
