Richard and staff–
I want to thank you for the excellent service you provided for my wife and I during our trip last month to Nicaragua. It started out a little rough with the weather caused delays on our flights down, but you were able to reschedule everything so our itinerary went as planned. We really appreciated your efforts.
The vacation was great, particularly the trip on the Rio San Juan and into the Indio Maiz Rainforest. What beautiful, unspoiled country. There are obviously changes coming with the new road to San Carlos and the development (new airstrip and dredging) near San Juan del Norte. I can understand why it is happening, but I am glad we were able to be there to travel in the area at this time. We never saw another person on the trip up the Rio Indio–something that probably won’t last much longer.< /p>
Accommodations everywhere were 1st class, and we felt perfectly safe everywhere we went. The time we spent the the last few days at Orquidea del Sur was a great way to end the vacation just relaxing so as not to get home more weary than when we left. I certainly recommend it to others looking for a place to unwind.
Our guide Lenin was wonderful–extremely knowledgeable, with a good personality and a great sense of humor. We couldn’t have done better. I have a few pictures I would like to send to him, but I don’t have his email address. Could you send it to me or let me know how to get them to him? Thank him again for his excellent service. And thank our driver, Ricardo, who did an excellent job.
