Tours, Packages and Transportation

We have several Day Trips, Multi Day packages and Point-to-Point transportation available to help you plan your vacation

Managua is a great place to hang out for a few day trips before heading off to more distant parts of the country. For our day trips we have chosen several of the more typical destinations and activities that are enjoyed by many of our guests and favourite trips from our own personal experience. Of course we can customize any of these to your requirements and time availability.  We have even sent guests for a 1 day trip to Ometepe Island.

If you have other destinations in mind, just let us know and we will get it organized for you before you arrive.

The day trip costs are per trip and are for 1-4 people (if 3 of you can sit in the back seat) and include a car (Toyota Corolla or similar) and driver.  For an additional cost we can arrange a van so if you prefer more space or have a larger group, let us know and we will get you a price quote. In most cases our drivers do not speak any English.  That is part of the experience.  So get out Google Translate and learn a few Spanish words 😁. However if you really prefer an English speaking driver, please let us know and we will give you a price. Plus the drivers stay in constant contact with our Hotel Manager to ensure your trip goes as planned. Additional Costs are per person (park entrances, boat tours, etc.) and are paid to the site operator.

Our Multi-Day package tours are “under construction” and should be available soon so check back again. If you want some help with a multi-day tour, just let us know and we will help you set it up.
