This day trip into Nicaragua certainly isn't for everyone. It's a VERY long day, with pickup at 5am and a return at about 9pm. And that is despite our driver, Johnny, putting the pedal to the metal at every opportunity (He's an excellent driver, but takes every opportunity to be the fastest bus on the road). It takes about an... More

We reached the 90-day mark of our time in Costa Rica so needed to make a trip to Nicaragua to obtain our exit/re-entry passport stamps and re-set our stay in Costa Rica. The day started off bright and early as the shuttle picked us up at 4:45 a.m. in Tamarindo to transport us to Liberia to join the rest of... More

We booked this private family trip to Nicaragua through a tour company we were using in Costa Rica called Maleku Tours. They use Plus Papaya for the day tours to Nicaragua. We left Playa Flamingo around 5:30am and returned around 9:00pm. The drive each way was 4.5 hours, but it was well worth the time!! The vehicle was comfortable. Our... More

This was a day tour that started with a 530a hotel pickup in Playa Hermosa and returning past 9p. Despite issues with Cuban refugees at the Nicaragua border, we managed to cross while other tours were canceled. Natalie was our assistant tour guide and photographer and she was just exceptional. David, our Nicaraguan guide was good and spoke excellent English.... More

What an awesome day trip! Not your typical day trip though! Started off normal but then ran into issues crossing the border into Nicaragua. Cubans were blocking the border entrance. Our choices were to turn around or cross by foot & another tour bus would meet us on the other side. Some decided not to continue. I'm so glad I... More

My friends and I did the one day tour to Nicaragua (booked through Alex on The Beach in Guanacaste). Bus drive was Johnny (or as we call him, speed demon), photographer was Jessie (such a nice kid!), and tour guide was Edwin (very knowledgable). It was a very long day, but we saw so many awesome sites! Lunch was also... More

It's a long day when you do the volcano tour into Nicaragua, but the team makes sure that you have everything you need, you eat and drink lots (I had my best meal in Central American on this tour!). I saw so many wild animals and had such fun walking around in the towns, and seeing the volcanoes. Our tour... More

Booked this tour from an agent at the Riu Palace. - It was an early start for an unremarkable breakfast. The driver was excellent. David (our guide) from Nicaragua was beyond excellent. He provided Spanish and English descriptions and spoke fondly of his country. However David only got on in Nicaragua and the photographer did the Costa Rica portion of... More
