Nicaragua tours?

I am new here (primarily read through the forums and learn what I can), and fairly new to cigars as well. I am about to finish my tour here in Iraq in a couple weeks, and have been thinking about what to do when I get back. A few of my Soldier's got me into cigars a while back, and I have been addicted ever since.
Of course it will be a trip of some sort with the wife, while the kiddos stay with a sitter. My first thought that was Nicaragua. Being that I like most of the cigars that come from there, and thought that it would be an interesting place to visit. I brought it up to the wife, and she said she would love to go and would like to tour some factories with me! Amazing!
So...
After searching around, I am yet to find a tour company or anything of the sort. We both only speak a small amount of Spanish (both grew up in SoCal), but not enough to get around. I think it was Kuzi who went on a tour a little while back, and I would love to do something similar. Does anyone know a good package, or anything that focuses on tourism and cigars in Nicaragua?
Any help would be appreciated.

    What do you mean with the "not sure all wives would be OK with it"? Just wondered.

    there was not much "vacationing" on the trip.
    a ton of factory tours that include the fermentation rooms that most people cant even stand to walk into. its very repetitive with the tours. no swimming on the trip i went on (no time). the food was decent but not amazing. very little time for shopping. . if she doesnt like cigars youll be screwed. there is almost no awake time that you dont have a cigar lit. i was smoking 4 or so a day. there is a good chance you could get sick (from the water). iduno... you have to be into cigars for the trip. the beds are not comfortable. your stuck on a bus with a bunch of drunk stinky guys smoking for hours on end riding around a third world country on rough roads with little to no air conditioning.

    ... does that sound like your wifes idea of a good time?


    if she is crazy then it might work out.


    thankfully my wife is just as crazy as me.
