10 years I organize these trips.. Never had a problem meanwhile this day is the only one a bit complicated due to International flight timing... It is important than we communicate well ..

You will land at Managua International Airport...There are direct flights coming from main USA cities.

Fabio my English speaking driver  will be waiting for you.

Option 1

Your flight arrive before 12md or around  you can decide for an immediate transfer to San Carlos using COSTENA evening flight Managua San Carlos going at 1.30pm.

Option 2

Your flight arrive later

I suggest you go to Granada with FABIO. On the way I recommend  a stop, at Massaia artisan market or Going in Crater of Mombacho Volcano, Catalina, Laguna de Apoyo... Also why not a canopy ride on a volcano..

Dinner will be in Romantic Granada ( Dinner is not include experience show than guests prefer this part open... all depend what you wish ... Fabio knows all places in town my favorite since 8 years is EL ZAGUAN located behind Cathedral.)

Due to Fabio service transfer, Tours and stay in best hotel in town there is an extra cost for this Granada stay ($80 per person )In my opinion GRANADA is a must when coming to Nicaragua There is a lot  of very nice restaurant in town and very reasonably price...

 Night will be  at  Hotel COLONIAL or ALHAMBRA or La mansion in the historical center of town ....

Fabio will drive you to airport next day on time to catch your flight to San Carlos

Option 3 flight arrive in very late evening or at night... Fabio may wait for you .. Even late and Transfer to Granada for stay as described above folowing morning you can make the tours as described, at airport at 12.30 to catch your flight to San Carlos 

Option 4 flight arrive in very late evening or at night... you can sleep at Best Western Las Mercedes close to airport relax there and fly following day with La costena Airline .  Hotel Las Mercedes is also a nice place with Bar, Restaurants, , Swimming pools.. Wish fun that night?  Disco, Casino Night life are close..... In this option I will have the Hotel Shutle waiting for you on arrival.
