Has been a busy couple of days on the road!!
Have moved fast from Cancun to Antigua in 57 hours!!
This is the perfect place to relax for a tourist on the move.
Surrounded by 4 Volcano's which you can climb and a tonne of restaurants and bars.
I have spent 1.5 days just walking around it. Sensational

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 …
I left Cusco early yesterday morning, thinking I needed to check in two hours early since I was flying international. I didn't realise that because the first sector was to Lima it was treated like a domestic departure though, so at 5:30am the check in counter wasn't even open. When I finally did check in, I got searched by the airport drug squad …
... lines, how coffee’s made tours, paint ball, laser tag, restaurants, and horseback riding.
At this time, we had already had breakfast, and view the Easter procession, and it was only 11am. We made a group decision to do the zip lining, eat lunch at 8,500 feet, and finish off the day with a coffee tour.
To reach the zip lines you first must sign your life away, and acknowledge that if anything happens, including death, it ...
... but it was hot enough that you couldn’t get close to it. People distributed marshmallows and they cooked quickly with the 1000 degree lava. It’s amazing that the last eruption was only 4 years ago in 2010.
We found the local markets and wandered around endlessly looking at all the local crafts from the Mayans. After a few days, they all start to look the same, stalls full of brightly coloured clothing or rugs. We did some shopping and we ...

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.
