Nice easy day, lots of variety, met some great people

Thank you to Carlos our Guide, and to the 3 Canopy guides who made a great day better. Pick up from our hotel was 10 minutes late, but quickly forgotten as we chatted the other guests and Carlos: Crazy road up Mombacho - up the volcano The coffee stop Carlos led an interesting discussion about the volcanic history of the area Carlos picked out the sloth from a near invisible location, very cool, also explaining about local flora and fauna Incredible view of Granada and Lake Nicaragua Loved the Tunnel Canopy (Zipline) Tour was made more fun and exciting by 3 guides, lots of jokes and letting my wife and I go tandem with each other, and upside down. Tuanis!!!

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

A fantastic tour!

The hiking around Mombacho was beautiful and the canopy zip lining was so much fun. My husband and I both had a wonderful time on the tour.

The guide was so nice! It was exceptional and we will keep memories of it forever Incredible

Great day out! Very friendly & knowledgeable guide! Beautiful place!
