“Friendly and supportive tour company”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Matagallpa Tours helped us plan a trip with our 13 year old grand daughter. We were in Nicaragua for the break in her school year and so only had a short time in the country. Maria at Matagalpa Tours spent a lot of time e-mailing us. After asking us what kinds of things we were thinking of doing, she sent lots of suggestions about where we might go and helped us to arrange tours to suit our interests. She also made great suggestions about where to stay and after we chose the ones we wanted, she handled the reservations.. Our accommodations were always wonderful. We are only sorry that we couldn't have stayed in Nicaragua and especially in Matagallpa, longer.

“Selva Negro and Cerro Arenal Cloud Forest.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Beautiful tour with Marlon of the Cerro Arenal Cloud Forest and Selva Negra! Very well explained and I could see he was genuinely interested in what he does as a tour guide and having just as much fun as me on the tour. We also got to see a white tailed deer, which is rare in the Selva Negra area.

If your looking to learn about coffee or see some great scenic trails and waterfalls, I highly recommend this company!

Ask for Marlon, he is very knowledgable about the region, and speaks great English!

You will be glad you did!

“Great Organization and Wonderful Guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

My daughter and I recently visited Matagalpa and wanted to do some hiking and birdwatching. We did the night tour and the birdwatching tour. We could not have asked for better guides. Even though the exotic birds were elusive, we were able to hear and learn about them. We highly recommend Matagalpa Tours. They are professional in every way and concerned about protecting the environment.

“Bosawas tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I had a great tour in the Bosawas rainforest with Matagalpa tours. Freddy was extremely helpful and my guide Ernesto was very passionate and enthusiastic about the area, and knowledgable on the area's wildlife. We very very lucky with the animals and birds (and snakes!) that we saw, and the camping and food was great.
Matagalpa Tours also seems to be a company with a great ethical policy, looking after its employees very well, and genuinely caring about the Nicaraguan environment, which is another reason why I would definitely go with Matagalpa tours again.
