    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.

    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 …

    Back again in Antigua! Only for a night or two, as we are just taking photographs to finish off the job we had been doing at Lake Atitlan. We completed the shoots, had dinners with friends, dropped into De La Gente (previously 'As Green As It Gets, the coffee collective) and then were off ...

    ... only after seeing a Chicken Bus, going in the opposite direction, rounding a bend on two wheels that we realised that we must have been doing the same. No wonder we had been hanging on for dear life to stay in our seats.

    We arrived safe and sound in Antigua, albeit an exhilerating ride, with all our bags despite the stories about luggage falling off and being taken off early. We were all starving so decided to drop our bags at the hotel ...
