Voice of Travelers to Nicaragua

Great time transiting in Nicaragua

My onward ticket from Houston to Tegucigalpa allowed me to stay in Nicaragua for two days. I purchased the ticket with Delta Airlines. My ticket had to be rebooked later because the original flight was canceled. This ticket was expensive, and it would have been cheaper had I bought a ticket on a direct flight. I had always dreamed about visiting Nicaragua, however, so I decided to buy the more expensive ticket in order to do so. Flying with Delta Airlines overseas was a nice experience; the ticket price included food and drinks on board. Obviously, I didn't have a chance to see all of Nicaragua in two days. I did visit Nicaragua's capital Managua, though, where I saw the Cathedral de Santiago and National Palace of Culture. I fell in love with Nicaragua. Next time, I plan to buy a direct ticket and stay in Nicaragua for longer.

Cheap ticket with great troubles

I found a very cheap package deal, which included a return ticket, a hotel, and transportation. Not knowing much about Nicaragua, I preferred the package over a ticket. This way I could rest assured that everything would be taken care of. However, a problem arose when the flight with American Airlines from Miami was not confirmed and the airline wanted to rebook my ticket for a later date. I thought the other services included in the package could simply be rebooked as well, but this was not the case. So unfortunately, I finally ended up paying all over again for a hotel in Nicaragua, as well as transport. I didn't get any money back from the agency. The stay in Nicaragua was pleasant anyway.
