Pleasures

We are in the city of Leon for the weekend. It's hot here, but I guess not as hot as it gets during the hot season, which scares me.

As an aside, be careful how you say "I'm hot" in Spanish, because you might accidentally say "I'm horny". I wish I could give you more specifics on this, but I can't because I forget the words.

Volcano boarding

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 …

The one where I almost become a surf town expat...

A travel blog entry by katywade

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 …

Melting in Leon

A travel blog entry by lindseykistler

Writing this from Leon, Nicaragua, where it's meltingly hot and humid. Fortunately the place I'm staying has a huge inner courtyard with deeply shaded seating areas all around. It's vaguely reminiscent of Central Asian houses (especially in Uzbekistan), except with much better facilities.

I'm aware that I've fallen far behind in keeping …

Cinderella's ugly sister

A travel blog entry by katherinelevy

If Granada is Cinderella, Leon is described as her ugly sister. Or as they would say in Vietnam... Same, same but different. Also a colonial city but much dirtier with more character! I arrived at the sleeping turtle hostel and was warmly greeted by the staff. After putting down all my stuff I saw a flyer for a new year's party at the top of Volcan …

    We had a nice stay here with our 2 10 year old boys. We loved room 8 with its private balcony and hammock. This was a great bargain place to stay for the weekend.

    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.
