Travel Blogs from Leon
Finally made it to Leon at 01.30 on the morning of the 29th! Just over 19 hours after catching the 06.20am ferry from Utila the previous morning!
It was not without it's adventures which included the bus driver forgetting his licence, bribing a cop, 2 bottles of rum, a receipt duplicating Nicaraguan boarder guard and the standard amount of …
I finally left San Juan del Sur today. Tore myself away is more accurate. And really who would have thought? The last time I was in in SJDS I HATED it. I couldn't get out of there fast enough. But what I was told this past week by expats that live in town is it is all about who is in town when. And maybe the dozen 20 year old Australian boys who …

How has this hostel rated in the past?
La Tortuga Booluda is one of those places that makes you instantly feel at home. There is simply just such a relaxing atmosphere there that makes you never want to leave. The beds and showers et cetera are basic, but more than decent enough for such a place. The nicest thing about the hostel are the several hammocks in the yard where you can become completely relaxed. Another nice thing about this place is the free/open kitchen where can cook a more than decent meal.
