We took the one day tour to Nicaragua. The driver picked us up at the appointed time 4:30 am and we had two other pickups so we really didn't get really going until 5 :15 am. We drove for about an hour and ended up picking up several other passengers. We finally stopped about 40 minutes away from the border... More

The negative part: The trip there was very long because we had to come back to our starting point ( Playa Del Coco) after driving for at least 30 minutes to pick up people ( I guess they had forgotten them).

We booked our tour through Alex on the Beach (John Wayne) in Rui Guanacaste. The tour was provided by papagayo tours and it was awesome. Eduardo our tour guide was very knowledgeable about his beautiful country and the driver Giovanni was fantastic in such tight roads. This trip is well worth the 5 am departure and 17 hour day.

The trip to Nicaragua was LONG, but very interesting. The tour guide (Camillo) was great and a lot of fun. The tour was great and we saw and did so much. It truly is a beautiful country. We travel to Central America a lot and this has been on our radar for quite some time. However, the entire booking process... More

Four of us took this all day tour. We had been well prepared by our Nexus reps on what to expect as in the wait at the boarder and other travel tips. What we didn't expect was the absolute beauty of the stops we made. Food was great both at breakfast and lunch. Book through Nexus you get the best... More

We took a day tour of Nicaragua with this tour company. The pick up at our resort went smoothly. Although the view was beautiful from our breakfast stop, the food was dry and tasted like it had been cooked the night before. The stops in Nicaragua were interesting: along Lake Nicaragua, viewing an active volcano, shopping in Catarina, an island... More

A day trip to Nicaragua was not at all on our radar until it was recommended by another guest at our resort. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip! Bryan at the front desk of our resort recommended Plus Papagayo & set up the tour. Since there were 4 of us, he recommended we do a private... More

This tour is an all day experience, don't go into it thinking anything else! We were supposed to be picked up at 0500 but the shuttle didn't arrive until 0525. I wanted to be annoyed at waking up early and waiting outside in the dark but I've been on more than enough of these tours to know that the pick... More

The day started at 5am being picked at our hotel. After a few pick ups for additional tourist we were transferred to a larger more comfortable bus,... More

We were staying in Playa del Coco and decided to take the day trip to Nicaragua. It was $125 USD/each. Our day started off early as we were picked up at 5am. All the smaller vans converged and everyone boarded a large tour bus and we were off. We stopped for breakfast just before we crossed the boarder. The stop... More
