“Great Service the Exceeded our Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2011

We booked our trip to Nicaragua via e-mail through Nica Adventures. We didn't want to be with a group so we opted to go with having Nica Adventures arrange the lodging, transportation and some day tours. Everything went very smoothly and we couldn't have been happier.

Edgard at Nica Adventures was fantastic in helping us arrange everything via e-mail and the pricing was excellent. We took a bit of a leap of faith because we trusted that the driver would show up and that the hotel reservations would be in place and we weren't dissappointed. Everything worked perfectly and exceeded every one of our expectations.

The vehicles were clean and comfortable, the drivers and guides were fantastic. If you are doing any tours around Granada you should request Ramon as the guide. He is the best.

We have a wonderful time and we would recommend Nica Adventures to anyone without hesitation.

“Nicaragua Adventures is excellent tour provider for Nicaragua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2011

We used Nicaragua Adventures and Edgard Moreira of their Granada office to plan a custom tour of western Nicaragua, including Leon, Selva Negra, Granada, Ometepe Island and San Juan del Sur. The tour and service they provided (including accomodations, drivers and guides) was excellent throughout and we would highly recommend them to anyone interested in touring Nicaragua.

“A-Plus Service and Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2011

We usually travel independently or with Intrepid travel and have never utilized the services of a company that plans individualized tours based around one's specific interests...we are so glad we did this thru Nica Adventures. We did this based upon the recommendations of a travel-experienced couple whom we traveled with for 10 days in the country and have known for a while. Pierre and Edgard of Nica-Adventures, planned an incrediblly interesting and informative itinerary for us, start to finish, to visit the best attractions in the country hassle-free, and once we got there, a seamless flow of our fabulous vacation unfolded with friendly and knowledgeable drivers and guides. Had we done this trip on our own, we would not have even scratched the surface of what this beautiful country has to offer...things that we learned going with Nica Adventures. We had many questions prior to the trip and they were answered promptly and professionally. The company also offers very reasonable prices. Their integrity and honesty was highly apparent. Strongly Recommend if you want to visit the real Nicaragua!

“Great service, friendly guide and driver, and flexible too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2011

My wife and I traveled to Nicargua in late December 2010. We were there from Christmas day to New Year's day. After checking various websites, I chose to book our trip through Nicaragua Adventures and am glad we did. Edgard M., the company's operations manager, helped us plan a trip to our specifications. We did all the planning via email. Edgard was very accommodating and helpful. Our itinerary consisted of visits to Managua, Leon and Granada. We took day trips from Leon and Granada, which included hiking up and down Cerro Negro (a dormant volcano); touring the cities of Leon and Granada; hiking around the summit of Mombacho (a dormant volcano); visiting a pottery factory in a small town near Masaya (and purchasing some beautiful, inexpensive pottery that we carried home on the plane); visiting various outdoor markets in different cities; taking a boat tour on Lake Nicaragua and seeing dozens of small isletas; and spending the day in San Juan del Sur, on the Pacific coast, near Costa Rica. We'd originally planned to spend the last day kayaking on Lake Nicaragua, but midway through our visit, asked our guide (Edgard B) if we could instead go to San Juan del Sur. Within 10 mintues of our request, the change was made -- for only an additional nominal amount of money. We were driven by Roberto the entire week, in a new, very clean Toyota SUV. Roberto and Edgard were terrific -- and Edgard even read some Nicaraguan poetry to us during our visit. We had the pleasure of meeting Edgard M. and Pierre Gideon, the owner of Nicaragua Adventures, at the company's offices in Granada. They were both very gracious. Nicaragua Adventures is a first-class operation. I recommend it highly. I also recommend a trip to this beautiful country -- the food is good and the people are friendly -- before the word gets out and it gets crowded with too many tourists!
