Ronald Lutes, United States

Bosa Tours was awesome!!! They were flexible when we added another couple at the last minute and they accommodated our group when some family issues came up. The information they shared with us about the area and the way they took care of us leaves no question in my mind about their professionalism and dependability. I would strongly recommend them if one is in the area and looking for help getting around or for tours. Read more

Members of a hiking club, who went to Nicaragua to go up on volcanoes stayed in Nicaragua for 12 days. We could find NOBODY BETTER than Bosa Tours & Travel!! BOSA is much, much more than a tourist company; BOSA is like a big family.
