Gustavo was outstanding. we had an eight-year-old and a 10 year old so at times your patience was stretched but he never was. pick up and drop off were on time. Gustavo was personable friendly and funny. the canopy tour guys were amazing especially with that age children. we will do it again

Gustavo was a great tour guide. He told us a lot about the history of Nicaragua and Central America. He also has a great knowledge of plants which is great! It was a lot of fun.
