Hiring a Car and Driver

Does anyone know the approximate cost of hiring a car and driver? We are considering touring around Matagalpa region for 3 or 4 days or so and have a group of four. I have been able to find information on car rentals. But we thought there might be advantages to hiring a driver as well and wondered what the extra cost for a driver would be, and if this is a recommended option. We would likely be leaving from Granada, so would also appreciate anyrecommendations for this service from Granada.

Kind thanks,

Matagalpa is certainly worth a few days of touring. The roads are in good shape, more or less, and if you are a bit adventurous, you could certainly manage the driving on your own. Hiring a driver is going to cost you their lodging, meals, daily charge, as well as gasoline costs and car rental fees.

Contact Orvin at orvind@hotmail.com. He is very experienced bilingual tour guide located in Granada. His office is on the main plaza next to Hotel Alhambra. He can answer your questions, tell him Jim sent you !
