We arranged our one night stay in the cabins and the 4 hour tour by email. Henry was at the bus station as promised, it was easy to spot him in his green Somoto Canyon Tour shirt and he is also quite tall. He gave us a ride to his place in his truck, which is situated on the Pan... More

Amazing experience. Was interested in the tour and reached out to Brian via email. He went above and beyond to give us a detailed description of how to get from Granada to Somoto within our budget. Once there, we stayed in cabins built for visitors right beside Henry's actual home. It felt like a homestay, eating at his home and... More

A group of friends and I took the Somoto Canyon 4 hour tour and it was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had!! We contacted the company before-hand and they were super flexible about our arrival time and didn't try to fit us into another tour/time. Our guide Uli was super friendly and professional - especially when it... More

We rented a car and drove to Somoto Canyon for the day. We decided to take the 4 hour tour with Somoto Canyon Tours and it was such a great decision. They were flexible with the timing of our tour and really easy to find (right on the side of the highway). They had everything they promised to provide. Only... More

Thank you for your review, Vaya, and expressing how much you enjoyed the tour. And thanks for the observation regarding the river shoes. We find most water shoes are not ideal for the walking part of the tour and that tennis shoes worn with socks are the most appropriate. However we will be replacing the worn ones which you unluckily... More

Decided to try somoto canyon tours based on their great reviews. It was my wife and I and our three year old son. From the start they were very friendly and patient with us since it took us a bit longer to get there and since we have a 3 year old and that is not easy. Franklin was our... More

An undescriptible experience. Henry and Franklin help us to enjoy this jewel. We arrive with our child six years old. He enjoy the whole travel. Frankling take care about us every moment. But the most important is that we can not describe our experience with words neiter with pics. You have to feel in your heart, skin, mind, eyes. It... More

Thank yo for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host you and your family. When you say you can stay for under $200 I guess you mean the family price including the tour. Space in our dorm cabins is only $8 per person per night or a private double cabin for $20 per night for two visitors. We... More

Harry and his team are well organized, very accommodating, and very friendly. We took the tour with Franklin. There's about a 2.5km mild hike in before you hit the water and then it's a combination of floating the river, climb arounds, and some great 30'-40'+ jump offs into cool refreshing crystal clear water! At the end there's a row boat... More

In this day and age, it is rare to be able to find such a magnificent place so unadulterated even 10 million years after its creation (that's not an exaggeration, it is the literal age). The tour we did was a half day 4 hours, ending in us eating lunch in the tour guides house with food made by his... More

I opted to take the 6 hour day trip option from Esteli through Tree Huggers and loved every moment of it. After catching the chicken bus from Esteli to Somoto on my own, I was met at the Somoto Bus Terminal by my guide for the day. From here, he drove me (and some others) to the canyon. Here, we...

Thank you for your kind words. Perhaps in our briefing we should mention that you spend a good few minutes more in the water than is expected. That seems to be why you all enjoy it so much! More
