Miguel J.

Managua, MN, Nicaragua

Hi, I'm Miguel. I come from Nicaragua's humble capital, Managua - a place, full of history, beautiful people, and colorful sites to see.

As a youth I was full of wanderlust and set out to explore every inch of Managua. Soon after, I began travelling out past the city limits. I found serenity in the surrounding lakes and volcanoes and learned how to truly appreciate the incredible nature that fills my country. I met many people along my journey - creating great memories and some life-long friendships.

It is my hope that I am able to help provide you with similar memorable experiences; sharing good times and great views with you on the various tours I offer. For this reason, I invite you to my home, Nicaragua. Let me guide you to another great adventure.

I have been guiding individuals and groups in different settings for the last five years. I have spent the majority of that time as tour guide, driver, and translator, for mission teams from the U. S. and Canada working in rural villages in northern and central regions of the country.

One of my favorite trips to take clients is to the gorgeous beaches outside of Managua. Just a 90 minute drive from the bustling city, you will find blue ocean, fresh fish, and good company! I am an avid surfer and have also spent time as a surf guide and instructor in San Juan del Sur.

Check out the tour packages I am offering. I hope I have been able to create something for everyone - a short afternoon trip to get to know the capital to all-day adventures exploring volcanoes, beaches, and/or historic colonial cities. Feel free to contact me to make up your own personalized adventures as well!
