Claudia "This was my first experience with FNEZ & after a little bit of hesitation I paid for my first trip! Any regrets? None!

    Free and easy actually gives you the time to properly experience and enjoy the places they travel. A nice change from the checklist style travel of other companies.

    I had such a blast on my Nica 20 day adventure. Even though we had a pretty small group, we all made the most of it and got to know one another really well. The guides, Mirjana and Kyle, we're so great!! Kyle knew his way around Nica really well and was always prepared for anything unexpected. Mirjana was just starting out when I did my tour last year, but you would have never known. She is a natural born leader who always had a big, fat, smile on her face even after crushing a bottle of Flor de Cana the night before ;) Mir made you feel welcome from the instant she met you and she wanted you to have the best trip. Overall, the places we stayed were amazing (I probably would skip Leon if I ever went back to Nica) and the food never disappointed. The view from the bungalow in Escameca was by far the best during the whole trip. And Laguna de Apoyo will forever be my dream house.

    The experience was more then I could have dreamt. Met the most amazing people and created friendships that will last a life time, not to mention travel buddies for the future. My leaders were encouraging, positive, fun, free spirited and a beautiful blessing to have lead the way through the most incredible places. They helped me step outta my comfort zone and pushed me to open my mind to all possiblities.They gave me an even bigger hunger to travel the world. I didn't think that were possible. Over all it was an incredible experience.

Super fun loving guy that can always make you laugh and get you into some awesome adventures. It was more than just a pleasure traveling with him for the 20 days in Nicaragua. Definitely a trip for the books!

    Josh & Johnny were excellent tour guides with a lot of local knowledge. This was an incredible trip full of adventure including surfing, baseball games, volcano boarding, rodeos, paddle boarding, kayaking, horseback riding, and soccer games. This trip gives you a true Nicaraguan experience!

    It was a great experience for a first time traveller as myself. I would highly recommend free and easy as a travel company and it won't be my last trip with them thats for sure. The group leader was super fun, spoke great spanish and could always help us translate when we needed it. Also super helpful when i needed to go to the clinic or with any medical assistance. He made it his goal for each of us to have the trip of a lifetime.

    This was my first experience with FNEZ & after a little bit of hesitation I paid for my first trip! Any regrets? None! I couldn't have asked for a better travel experience through a travel company & I couldn't have asked for 2 better leaders or a better group of travelers to share the experience with. Nicaragua is a beautiful country with a lot of fun & tranquility to offer. FNEZ made sure that we could do & see as much as we could in those 20 days. Josh & Johnny were both such enthusiastic, approachable, open, respectful, smart & fun individuals as well. I'm thankful to have had them as our guides on this trip. Would for sure recommend to someone looking to have a ton of fun & looking to meet a lot of new interesting people. If you want the background logistics taken care of (transportation & accommodation) all the while having the freedom to do whatever you want, you'd be silly to not consider researching trips offered by FNEZ. I see another FNEZ trip on my horizon for sure! xo

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • November 23, 2016

      In the additional tour activities, there is the FNEZ sponsored beach cleanup mentioned. What is this about?

      FNEZ has a sponsorship and partnership with Trash Hero, which results in beach cleanups by the travellers and others like them. This is a great way to do good, feel good, and get some beach all at the same time. The feeling of doing your part in saving the world is just epic!

    • November 23, 2016

      Can you help me and suggest an average travel budget for this tour?

      Your personal spending on this tour will include your food, drinks, shopping, entertainment and any activities that are not included.

      For the entirety of your 20 day tour we could approximately recommend a budget of CAD800-1600 / EUR600-1200 / USD600-1200. Any travel budget will of course fluctuate between personalities, so make sure to ask yourself: "What type of traveller are you?"

      So, please, keep in mind that every traveller has different spending habits while on the road, therefore more or less can be spent than the above suggested budgets.

    • November 23, 2016

      It is important to me to give back to the community while travelling. Will I have such an opportunity during this tour?

      Yes, for sure! On the drive up to Cerro Negro - where you get to Volcano Board - you will be able to stop and visit the local farm kids. Here you will have the chance to donate school supplies and toys. A soccer game with the kids is also likely to take place!
