I've used these guys a few times now when I fly out of Managua. It's a great way to source a shared ride when travelling alone. I find them efficient, personable and easy to deal with. I booked a very early pick up and knew I could rely on this pre booked service. My driver was friendly and caring. Great service.

We are grateful for Adelante Express' service. We were traveling from Managua to San Juan del Sur and back and both times, the driver came 30 minutes earlier and were very courteous. On the way to San Juan del Sur, our driver even stopped at a spot so we can take photos of the 2 volcanoes. The trucks were new and clean. Also, reserving a vehicle was easy and stress-free. We will definitely use their service again.

My friend and I used this service to get from San Juan Del Sur to Managua Airport. We were picked up promptly on time at our backpacker hostel. The car was comfortable and air-conditioned and clean, the driver was lovely. For a 2 hour drive it cost us $40 USD each and totally worth it.
I left my phone in the car and didn't realise at first, I called the company and the driver turned around and dropped my phone back off to me. Very happy with their customer service and would highly recommend them.

I ordered a shuttle service from Managua nicaragua to San Juan del sur and paid online, they sent me a confirmation email , when I arrived to Nicaragua nobody showed up! They were never there! And they didn't even let me know!
Only after I sent them an email they said we canceled your order because you were alone! Shame on them!!!!!! Not even email me ahead! Worst service ever!!!!
Don't order them, you can find shuttle at the airport.

Our party used Adelante 4 times in the past week. 2 of those times they showed up 15 to 20 minutes late. And one of the times, the driver arrived to pick us up and just sat in an unmarked car for awhile after already showing up late. I had to walk outside and look in the car to see his Adelante shirt to identify him. Then he didn't acknowledge that I had already paid a deposit, even though the hard copy reservation he had in his hand showed that I had, so he was trying to ask for the full fare. He ended up calling the main office to confirm I had already paid the deposit. Okay, fine, but on top of that he shorted me 90 Cordoba ($3 US) when I asked for change after paying him, then drove off before I could say anything. No bueno!

Used Adelante Express from San Juan del Sur to Granada and again from Granada to Managua. They were punctual, professional, reliable, friendly and well priced. Frankly I would look no further to arrange any transport in and out of San Juan or anywhere else I may need to get to that Adelante service. Fantastic service, Fantastic company.

I hired a private van from San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua to Liberia, Costa Rica. I was traveling with 4 pets and lots of luggage so I needed my own van.
Driver service was excellent, very nice and polite. He loaded all of my bags. He pointed out various points of interest as we drove along.
Most importantly, we crossed the border effortlessly, which isn't easy with pets. They really know what they are doing t the border. I would definitely use them again.

We scheduled two shuttles with Adelante Express while in Nicaragua; one from Managua Airport SJDS, then SJDS to Granada. Both times the driver's showed up as expected - actually a little early - and they drove safely compared to some of the other drivers we had. We arranged shared shuttles but both times we got a private car. There are cheaper options for getting around, but this was easy and dependable, and more comfortable than some of the other options we experienced.

I have been in Nicaragua many times over the past several years and while I normally prefer to take buses - far more inexpensive and interesting - a shuttle can be a handy option if you just want to get someplace a bit faster. I noticed this trip there are far more shuttle services available and the prices are coming down because of it. However not all are equal in terms of comfort and service. For example, I took the cheapest shuttle I could find (not adelante) from Granada to San Juan del Sur - it was adequate but it left late & dropped clients off in Rivas instead of the nearby port for ferry to Ometepe (because we were running late). Later when I needed to head to Managua for my flight I used Adelante Express ... the few extra dollars was well worth it for comfort and assurance I would get to my destination on time. I love the online booking system which gives you options for pick up/drop off locations, various times of shuttles and the prices. Communication from the office confirming my booking and with a reminder email was also great. Excellent customer service from start to finish.

I took Adelante Express from San Juan del Sur to the Managua Airport. The driver was punctual and the car, a newish Toyota Corolla, was comfortable. It took 2 1/2 hours to get to the airport. It is pricey, though. $72 US But it was a private shuttle.
