Twin volcanoes and Pushbike riding

A travel blog entry by kasnsqueak


... and had been there 2 days and were headed for the beaches of San Juan which is a backpacker, surfer place on the coast an hour from Rivas . We swapped details and would keep in touch as they too were headed to Panama. The local tour company we approached for an island tour is unhelpful when he says he wont run a trip for 2 people as his brochure describes but will run it at a marked up price for us. We decide to hire pushbikes and do our own thing instead and head off ...

C'est La Vie

A travel blog entry by lynsey.nault


... We discovered a delicious drink as well. They serve passionfruit juice which is to die for, and for not much more, gave us a shot of 7 year rum to put in it. I'm going to call it the silent killer. The way of life here seems slow and calm. Lots of kids around taking classes - there are some volunteers teaching english to preschoolers and another school just up the street. The main form of transportation is bus, but there are numerous bicycles and ...

A travel blog entry by michael.sandi

We also had a Christmas tree piñata but we decided to leave it to Christmas Day to whack it open. We spent the evening drinking and singing Christmas songs. Wednesday 25 December 2013 We signed ...

Peace and love in nicaragua

... to book and found out you only get one go down the volcano. It took me half a day at least to get the hang of the sandboarding so figured one go would be a bit hopeless. We made the decision to save our money for something else. I didn't regret this either after I heard some of the reports - mouthfuls of sand and ash on the way down - ugh!

After Leon we moved on to Omatepe Island on Lake Nicaragua. From the boat crossing, the two volcanoes on the island dominated ...

Jurassic Park

A travel blog entry by miller.mba2011


... the Santa Rosa National Park (which was a 1.5 hour drive and 1.5 hour boat trip away). We had a great boat full of good guys all looking forward to catching the barrel of a lifetime.

Then we got to Ollie's Point. Now, I'm not saying that a 1 foot wave is too small to surf. Indeed, all nine of us did paddle into several right handers peeling across the river mouth. I might even be able to claim the world's smallest barrel before pushing through the back of ...
