Day trip from Costa Rica to Nicaragua
Hi, we will be staying in Playa del Coco, Guanacaste in July for 2 weeks. While we are there, we would love to visit Nicaragua (Granada, Lake Nicaragua and Masaya are some places that we are interested in seeing). We are renting a car but I know you can't take rental cars in to Nicaragua. Do you offer any such day tours or can you recommend anyone to us? Being so close to Nicaragua, I would really love to visit while we are in Costa Rica. I thank you in advance for any help or suggestions that you can give to us. By the way, it will be my husband and I along with our 6 year old son. Thanks so much!! :-)
I hope this helps - should you require more info please feel free to contact me.
We have all kinds of vehicles at your disposal and we offer tour Guided Packets.
If you are staying for 2 weeks in Playa el Coco, you should come to Nicaragua for more than just one day. I suggest that you come for 2 or 3 days. The first day you can visit Rivas, and San Juan del Sur beach, one of our most beautiful beaches! The second day you can go to Granada, Masaya, Catarina and also visit the Masaya Volcano. And if you want a third day I will suggest that you visit Managua. Or you can make the trip any way you like it, fix it your way to visit only the places you want, we are here to please our visitors. :).
You, your husband and your son will love Nicaragua. I hope my answer helps you, and hope to hear soon about you.
Enjoy your vacations! :-)!
Thanks for contacting me! I really appreciate it!
It would be my pleasure to tour you around. That is actually my business out here.
Indeed, I strongly recomend you to shorten your schedule in playa coco and visit tola beaches as well. There you can go to Giant Foot Beach, for example, which is a fishers' village under developement (check -I worked there) and has some neighbouring and beautiful beaches like Amarillo, for instance, which is still virgin. These pristine bodies of water arelocated up north from San Juan del Sur. Yes, I do offer the tours you mentioned, and some more... On the other hand, bringing a rental car into Nicaragua would be a problem. Some car rental offices in Costa Rica have branches in Nicaragua, Alamo Rent a Car for example. So, what they do is to give you a car there for you to drive up to the border where you would swtch to another one-from the same company-that is going to be waiting for you once once you put your feet in Nicaland.
Now, if you are coming over here, I'd like to know when in July cause I'm flying to Belgium pretty soon. In any case, if I'm not around, I know somebody who could take care of you (a colleague).
Finally, if you need any other info related to hotels and restaurants, just to mention, be open and ask. I'll be glad to help you out. You can also contact me to my email: or to my phone number 505-8416-1040.
Have a nice day!
