¡Un Buen Viaje! Tours To Nicaragua & El Salvador
"I have recently returned from a two week trip to Nicaragua. I was working on a project to meet and photograph artists and artisans in and around the Granada area.
In planning for this trip, Jessica had an immediate understanding of my objectives and was able to prepare an itinerary of contacts and meetings with a wide range of interesting people and organizations. In the two weeks I was there I was able to experience Nicaragua and its people, in a far more in-depth manner than by going on a conventional tour or by traveling on my own. Jessica has a tremendous love for Nicaragua, and is a wonderful ambassador for this interesting and exciting country. I continue to have contact with some of the people I met and I will be sure to return there again.
This trip set a new standard for having an interesting travel experience, largely because of the guide services provided by Jessica. My friends and family are envious of the great time I had and I am really pleased with the photo images I was able to capture.
I highly recommend Jessica’s guide and interpreter services for anyone planning travel to Nicaragua.

"Jessica is a fantastic tour guide that made our trip to Nicaragua truly unforgettable. She is an invaluable guide in planning a trip to Nicaragua, and dealing with whatever unforeseen issues arose during our trip. Without Jessica’s help and planning, we could not have possibly coordinated as fun, interesting, and safe trip to Nicaragua."

"Jessica did a fantastic job with our unique and demanding group of 25. Our flight was delayed by a day and she was able to reschedule on the fly so we missed nothing. I strongly recommend working with Tours To Nicaragua."

“My tour of Nicaragua was incredible! It was obvious that Jessica did a lot of research and preparation in creating the perfect itinerary: a wide array of activities, meals, and cultural experiences mixed in with her personal accounts of and experiences within the country. The unique experiences that I will forever carry with me include the tour of a pineapple farm, the bat cave in Masaya, and the cloud forest at Mombacho. On a smaller scale, I thoroughly enjoyed the endless variety of fresh fruit juices – delicious! Overall, the itinerary presented a perfect mix of visits to tourist destinations as well as many off-the-beaten path explorations. Further, it was refreshing and relaxing to have my whole trip planned out before my arrival. I have traveled to over 30 countries and can say that my tour of Nicaragua ranks in my top 10 best travel experiences! I have only experienced “The Heart of Nicaragua” tour, but I certainly wish I could take them all!”
“On a beautifully clear day, we set off from an isolated community south of Managua to hike up a small hillside to gain a panoramic view of the Masaya Volcano (which we had explored up close the previous day). We had only hiked a few meters when we noticed that five curious kids from the community had joined us. I thought it was a pretty significant hike, but these kids were walking barefoot, and one young girl was carrying a toddler! They walked with us all the way to the top, carrying the toddler, and generally seeming to be entirely at ease, pointing out all of the sights to “los gringos.” At that point I remember thinking, “I’m really experiencing the people and the landscape here…this isn’t staring out the window of a tour bus.”
“Jessica was prompt in responding to my original inquiry, listened to my interests and created a day and a half of touring that maximized our time and took us to a variety of fascinating and unique venues in Managua and Granada. From the moment we stepped out of the airport, I knew we were in good hands. Jessica and her driver were waiting and greeted us with smiles. We toured at a relaxed pace, never feeling that we had to hurry up. The highlight for me was the peaceful electric boat ride around part of Lake Nicaragua. The scenery was exceptional and the bird watching fantastic. Jessica really helped us “see” nature. Jessica is a true ambassador for Nicaragua."
“Jessica provided an enjoyable and educational Nicaraguan experience – one that could not be obtained through more traditional tour guides or alone without a guide. Her love for Nicaragua comes through at all times. Jessica planned exceptionally well and kept us in touch with interesting and progressive aspects of Nicaraguan life. Her use of local guides and public transportation enriched our experience. We had a wonderful time and would recommend Tours To Nicaragua to anyone who wants to experience Nicaragua.”

“I just finished an excellent custom tour with ¡Un Buen Viaje! Jessica was very accommodating of my changes in schedule, and organized a great tour with a good mix of outdoor and cultural activities to make most efficient use of the time I had in Nicaragua.”
