San Juan del Sur cruise passenger

I will be arriving by cruise ship and have the day to explore the area. Any suggestions for how to spend the day? Are there any private tour companies available? Are there any hotels that aloow daily visitors for a fee?

Thank you in advance.

there are some companies that do some activities in the area as zip wire or canopy tour (the flying frog) or some Rappelling activities as http://www.aracnerappel.com/.

there are many private companies available that can take you to the same destination as the tour company from the ship for a lower price but remember that they will charge you same price for 1 than for 2 so if you find a friend to go and shared the cost will be better, Places nice to visit a couple of hour away are Granada colonial city and masaya Active volcano.

Byron,

Thank you for your response. Do you personally conduct tours of SJDS, Granada, and the volcano? Do you use a bus, private car, taxi? How long would the tour take?

if it is a cruse ship arriving that day probably i´m already book by the big company that run the tours of the ship, but i do tours all around Nicaragua and from the ship terminal to Granada or the volcano is about an hour and a half to 2 hours and tours for this day is always better by private vehicle because of the time, but if you want to come to this areas and do not want to buy a tour and be surrounded by many people i recommend to get a cab out side of the port terminal and go to this places.

if need something else let me know.

SJDS to Granada?

We arrive by cruise ship and I'm wondering if there is an alternative way to go to Granada besides the ones offered by the cruise line? Better and maybe cheaper or shall I take the easy way out and book the excursion?

Thank for any suggestions

You do nto have to book a tour through the cruise ship, you can easily go out the main gate of the port and get a cab and take you to different places, these cabs are safe, they are registered at the port and have permission to get clients off the ship and take them around
