“You can't go wrong with Ramon...!”
Review of No Rush Tours

No Rush Tours
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 February 2012

We pre-booked a few tours with various different tour operators in Granada and you can't do any better than Ramon and his crew. He really adds the personal touch and caters to your every need. Unlike some companies (that just want to take your money and give you the absolute minimum), Ramon will customize the tour to your desire, he offers group and private tours (at a very competitive price), speaks perfect english after living in the US for some time and very knowledgeable about most everything in the south western quadrant of the country...

Once we met him, we booked to rest of the our tours with him and cancelled the original reservations.

Unfortunately, a website doesn't exist for No Rush Tours, so the best way to contact him from abroad is via email: ramonparra60@yahoo.es

Book with him early as he tends to get a lot of business and his availability is limited.

Our vacation to Nica was fantastic and Ramon was the icing on Granada! He was our guide for the Lagoon and was so informative and knowledgeable, but we truly enjoyed his company as well. So much so, that we scheduled the historic buggy ride with him the next day. Ramon, again, was so informative about the city and it's interesting history but after the second day we considered him a friend we made on our journey instead of a guide. Hopefully this letter makes the experience in Granada as memorable as our was! Have fun and say HI to Ramon for me..

Ramon provided us with a couple perfect day trips from Granada. While we saw so much in one day including Laguna de Apoyo, the White Villages, pottery making demonstration, Catarina Overlook, Masaya Market, and a night tour of Masaya Volcano, we never felt rushed at all. In spite of how much we saw, it was relaxing, fun, educational, and a highlight of our trip to Nicaragua. The volcano tour timing was perfect as we were able to peer into the volcano before dark, see the sunset from a high point, and then descend into a cave and see the bats. The Mombacho volcano tour was equally rewarded because Ramon knew how to avoid the crowds and make the most of our time. My Spanish is a work in progress, but Ramon speaks perfect English.

Ramon has a focus on safety and ensuring you see what you want at your own pace. Our driver, Jose Luis, was very helpful, safe, and dependable. Remember to tell Ramon that Flor de Cana is the national flower of Nicaragua when he asks!

We recently returned from at trip to Granada, Nicaragua where we had the assistance of Ramon at No Rush tours for our travels. Ramon was a pleasure to work with, accommodating all our requests and customizing our tours to our requests. He had a van pick up our party of 6 at the border and we had a comfortable trip to Granada, stopping to photograph on the way. The next day Ramon took us on an informative tour of Pueblos Blanco’s, introducing us to a local potter and his workshop and studio. This was something we could not have done on our own. The following day his van took us back to the border with a stop at the Volcano Masaya. I would highly recommend his services for a comfortable and informative way to get the most out of a trip to Granada.

Do yourself a favor and book a tour with Ramon. I'm not usually one for tours but with Ramon it will be just you and your family/friends. Ramon will customize any day trip he has for you. So if you don't want to do part of it, no problem. If you want to stay longer at a certain place, no problem. He just wants you to enjoy your vacation and show you his beautiful country. We did the Masaya Classic Tour and the Isletas tour and had fun on both. Hopefully Ramon will have his tour guide in training Brian with him. This young man speaks 4 languages and takes polite to a whole new level! Brian joined my family in friends for swimming in beautiful Apoyo Crater Lake.
