Day 29: Monday, 27 January The 3.30am alarm wasn't pleasant to wake up to, but it was time for Nicaragua so we were excited about that! The shuttle arrived for us at 4am and we headed for Guatemala City. The driver pulled up outside what looked like a closed office building with one bus in the driveway. He assured us it was the King Comfort bus …

Volcano boarding, cock fights & baseball (almost)

Leon has been one of our 'must see' cities since the early stages of planning this adventure for one key reason: Volcano Boarding. This is the only place in the world where someone can board down the side of an active volcano (The most active volcano in Central America!) without dying or being severely disfigured.

So when we reached …

Our 1st day in Leon at the big foot hostel, we had abit of a lay in as the full day of travelling took it out of us. Breakfast was really good we found a french bakery just down for the hostel, there were lots of tasty pastries and baguettes to choose from so we were happy! Afterwards we had a look round the town, visited the beautiful churches and …

    This hostel is huge, super clean, amazing people, and great adventures and tours! We did the boarding from here and received a Tona beer, a volcano cookie for the transport back. And then a mojito and beer for a couple games of "flip cup". A great place to stay and I highly recommend it to everyone going to Leon.

    Cool Backpackers hostel

    Bigfoot is a super fun place to stay! Lively bar, fun travelers, great tours, great cafe attached, helpful staff! We'd stay again for sure. We got REALLY hot during the evenings though! The fan doesn't keep you cool during the night when it's hot, but it wasn't a big deal. We were amazed at how CLEAN it was, the staff was constantly cleaning the floors so the common areas were always immaculate. It was a great place to stay and for a good price (privates for $15, and dorms for like $6 i think) so I recommend it, ESPECIALLY if you do the volcano boarding. Great crowd of people to do it with.

    Ok hostel for the money but can find better

    I got a bit of an aloof vibe from the staff at Bigfoot. The Hostel itself is ok but dorms are HOT and with just one pedestal fan per room for 10 beds is unacceptable, I left after one night.
