Antigua, overlooked by a volcano

We started our drive to Antigua hopeful Carl will get his passport back! At Zephyr Lodge you set a tab up until the end of your stay whilst they keep your passport, so you pay up! However the morning we were leaving (23rd October) their card machine wasn't working!! (No ATM in Lanquin!) So a lady who worked there came on our shuttle bus to the …

... in their bedroom cause they can't agree on the shows to watch (not a bad idea...). We unfortunately had to leave the party early cause of a very early start the next day.

Day 5: this was the hardest physical challenge I have ever faced. We met the group at 6am and headed to Volcan Acatenango. We were warned that the first hour would be the hardest. I attempted to carry my 15kg backpack for a whole 5 mins before I had to call for the porter. The hike up was ...

... and economic heart of Central America. After being destroyed by a series of earthquakes in 1773, the city was abandoned in favour of what is now Guatemala City, although not everyone left and now today, it is one of Guatemala’s top visitor destinations and immediately we could see why. The following day we got out of bed as quickly as possible because arriving in the dark we had no real concept of our surroundings and knowing we were surrounded by volcanos and beautiful ...

... to do: - Volcan Pacaya. We got this volcano hike included with our spanish school deal, and it was pretty impressive. We hiked with Tanner from our homestay. After 1.5 hours in another minivan we came to the base of Pacaya where loads of children try to rent you sticks to use for the hike, ensuring you that they are "necesario". If you don't rend one they just turn to asking for straight money. Entrepreneurs. Our guide was Nere, and he was cool. Has hiked the volcano twice ...

    Great Hostel in Antigua

    Great hostel with basic rooms and excellent value. Very clean, secure, good location and includes a great breakfast and Wi-Fi.

    Getting to Nicaragua - The travel agencies In El Tunco are both really good and for some reason cheaper than going direct. There is a direct bus that picks you up on the main road and takes the coastal road rather than going into San Salvador. Comes every 2nd day and costs $45 to Leone in Nicaragua. Otherwise you'll need to get to San Salvador which you can do by chicken bus or by mini bus. Mini bus is $1.50 and should be an hour. Mine took 1.5 hours due to City roadworks. Allow time. You need to get to Puerto Bus Terminal. Ask the driver to advise you of the best place to get off, it will be about 5 blocks away. The bus leaves at 12:30 and is a luxury bus from a company called King Quality and costs $51. They feed you, has wi-fi and they take care of all the immigration, you don't even need to get off!! They advise it takes 10-11 hours to Managua. I spoke to a few people who said it can take up to 13 hours.... You need to pay $17 to exit El Salvador and $3 for Honduras. You can do the same trip at 6am with another company called Del Sol as well. San Salvador to Honduras including immigration takes about 5 hours.
