We wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time. We absolutely loved the trip, and particularly enjoyed Nicaragua. That part of the trip was just so different than what we anything we had experienced before. Jose was a terrific guide – he took us to some really interesting places to see the locals make hammocks, pottery, hats, etc. I plan on sending him some pictures to give to the locals. Also, we really LOVED the hotel, La Gran Francia. That place was great – both the room and the restaurant.
