We did several tours with Tierra - they offer a lot of variety, and I wanted to keep things simple during our time in Nicaragua. We did the Mombacho Xpress, which was fun and informative. We had booked it leaving at 12:30, but they arrived at 9:30 - surprise! Thankfully we were at our guest house and it wasn't a huge deal. TT was very apologetic.

We then had a private tour of Masaya, which was excellent.

Volcano boarding was great fun! A few things to know before you go. We had our 8 year old son with us. The board was too heavy for him to carry up the volcano, especially in the wind - my husband had to carry it. This is not a leisurely hike. You're carrying a board that essentially acts like a sail, making for some exciting moments. That said, the views were some of the most beautiful I've ever seen in my life, and our guide David was FANTASTIC. We had a great time actually sledding down, and very safe.

Our final tour was of the mangroves in Leon. The real star of this tour was our boat captain, who maneuvered us in and out of tight areas, spotted caimans in the water, etc. Our tour guide on this one was more of an escort. She was very nice, but unable to tell us anything about what we were seeing.

All in all, we were very pleased with Tierra Tours.

We booked two tours through Tierra Tours. The people at the office are very friendly and knowledgable.

Our first tour was with Leo to Las Isletas. We really enjoyed the boatride through the islets and Leo was a fun tourguide and had nice stories about the area. So 4 stars for Leo!

Our second tour was the evening tour to the Masaya volcano. This tour was rather dissapointing. I felt like our tour guide (he didn’t introduce himself) didn’t feel like being on the tour. All the info he gave us felt like he was reading from a piece of paper and when we quickly visited the museum he hardly said anything. At the top, we had 15 minutes to look at the lava (which was hardly visible). Honestly, I would not recommend this tour. If the tour could be expanded with a proper visit to the museum so you can get proper background info on the area, the tour would be more worthwhile.

In conclusion: Tierra Tours is a dependable operator, however, the quality of the tours is determined by the tour guides.

My boyfriend and I hiked Mombacho xpress with Tierra tours during our time in Nicaragua. We were told to prepare for a 4 hour hike picking us up at 9:30.

We were picked up and driven to a coffee plantation and given some info about the farmers and families in the area- and spent around 30 min just waiting around there. Then we were driven part way up the mountain where we waited more (fine but we didn’t realize we didn’t hike whole mountain and it’s now 11:15 and we still haven’t started hike).

Then we drive up to main where hike will start. Our original guide pointed out our route for mountain and told us our guide was still trekking and to wait 10 min. 35ish min latter our guide comes for us and we didn’t hike until after 12:00. The hike was pretty, lots of knowledge given about the flora and fauna but you do hike a lot on wooden steps/ boards

All of this would have been fine had I known we would be spending so much of the day waiting around.

We used Tierra Tours as they were recommended by our hotel. They took us to the volcano with a very informed English speaking guide. We met another Canadian couple who used this same company with the same guide the day before and were happy with both trips.

Mombacho is a great place to see Granada, Masaya, and Las Isletas from above. Do yourself a favour and pay for the tour to take you to the top! We happily drove past as we watched miserable looking people hiking up the road. There’s nothing to see until you get to the interpretation centre.
The interpretation centre is a nice place to start and get your bearings. From there our guide, Leo (great guide!!) took us along the trails and pointed out interesting flora and fauna specific to the area.
The zip lining was a blast. The guys taking us around were having just as much fun! I would recommend the whole Mombacho express / Canopy tour.
