For what it’s worth, as the young guy on the trip, I thought I’d send you my two cents.
I was skeptical of being on a “guided tour” as I was expecting something a little stuffy, not too authentic and having strict time lines. Our trip was the opposite.
I can’t imagine having a better guide than Gerald. His style was very relaxed while being enthusiastic at the same time. He was a wealth of knowledge when it came to everything from the history of the country to the types of birds we were looking at, and even which place to stop at the side of the road for the best Quesillos. He really did make the trip what it was and was very accommodating, along with Alberto (driver), when we wanted to make minor changes in the itinerary like last minute stops at the market, etc… On top of all that, he is a great person and we really enjoyed his company at all times, including the overnight on Ometepe.
All in all, it was an amazing holiday and your team did an excellent job of making it so.
Thanks again to you and Gerald.
