When Overseas Adventures Travel (OAT) cancelled their pre-trip group tour to Nicaragua, I booked a private tour for 5 days with Nica Adventures. I was very pleased with their services. All the arrangements were delivered on time and in full. The hotel choices were very nice; the guides were knowledgeable and courteous, the sites they selected to visit were all interesting. The highlights of our tour were the boat tour of the islands in Lake Nicaragua --- we say many birds and mammals; and the one night stay in Ometepi. The hike up to the waterfall on the Maderas volcano on Ometepi, the visit to the private museum of archaelogical artifacts and the stops at rock pictoglyphs were all wonderful. Pricewise, the private tour was little more than the group tour with OAT would have been. It had the advantage that I got much more opportunity to practice my Spanish than I did on the subsequent group tour of Costa Rica with OAT. Advance payment by wire transfer is easy with any major brokerage; sending a check by mail to Nicaragua proved totally unreliable.
