We visited the Masaya volcano, Granada and a boat trip on lake Nicaragua and a tasty lunch was also included in the price.

A rave review for our guide David. We went to Mombachao and hiked, then to the beautiful crater lake with a local lunch and then to Masaya Volcano at night to see the lava flow from inside the crater. His stories, folklore, history, geography etc were highly informative and entertaining. Thank you!

This was a great full day tour. We had just the day there and booked with Macua Tours rather than the ships own tour - because our fellow travellers had used them before. I am so glad we did this... We asked Macua to organise a full day with a trip up Masaya volcano, a visit to Granada, lunch plus... More

I arranged a trip for 12 people with Macua. We were coming off a cruise ship. I booked them due to their high ratings on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. The trip had a late start due to weather issues, as we had to tender ashore. The sights are a fairly long drive from the ship, so Macua had... More

The lunch was great and the van was clean & air conditioned. Would definitely recommend. Stopping at some of the small businesses to watch them... More

We used macua to shuttle us from Liberia to the Nicaraguan border. They were incredible!! On time and they were so helpful with all the border paperwork. The border is a gong show!! I highly recommend using these guys to get you in and out of Nicaragua if you're flying in and out of Liberia.
