We did a full day tour while in port on a cruise. They delivered as promised. My emails were all answered very quickly and they worked hard to make sure that we had all we needed for a great day ashore. Edwin works the office side and was very good to help me coordinate the group. They were waiting for... More

Edwin Fuentes, owner of Macua Tours went above and beyond when we were involved in an auto accident. He is a licensed attorney as well as owner of Macua and came to our aid in dealing with the police. Our driver was found not to be at fault and he has been working tirelessly for 2 days so far to...

Before our recent cruise on the Pacific Princess, I took the time to research this port to find out the best sights to see there. I came across these glowing reviews of Macua Tours and E-mailed the company to arrange for a vehicle and guide. Edwin's communications with us were timely and very professional. On another website, I contacted other... More

Booked a private tour with Macua tours--great little company picked us up at the cruise dock and provided a tour infinitely better in value and interest than Princess could deliver. We enjoyed a horse drawn carriage in Granada, fabulous boat tour of Lake Nicaragua, saw a crater lake, and had a catered private luncheon in a local restaurant. Our boat... More

We had Macua take us from Liberia to San Juan Del Sur, and then from Granada to Nicaragua. We were traveling with two young kids and limited language skills, and were concerned about navigating the border crossing. As advertised, Macua made this process easy, quick, and painless both ways. I had read the play by play online for how to... More

We used Macua Tours for airport transportation, day trip to Costa Rica, day trip to Ometepe and a day trip of Granada. They were always on time and organized, which was much appreciated! We had the same driver, Allan, on all the days, he was friendly and efficient. Our guides changed from trip to trip but we enjoyed all of... More

We had pre-arranged a private tour with Edwin and Macua Tours & Travel including a visit to Granada City, a trip on Lake Nicaragua and a drive to the Masaya active volcano. We were met, as planned by Edwin as we arrived on the dock and... More

Let me first say that I was a really crummy customer and Edwin was still SO polite and nice to me! I had to postpone the tour twice, and he was very gracious about changing it. It is worth every penny for a private tour where everything is taken care of. I never would have been able to do all... More
