Very pleasant stay. Rooms were clean. Air conditioner and cable worked perfectly. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was tasty (pancakes & eggs one day and gallo pinto and eggs the next). My only thought would be for them to have more staff that spoke english and that were more helpful with suggesting navigating to local restaurants.

From there, one group stayed at the Hostel in Leon, while the other headed to Chacraverde. For the Leon group, students were able to go to Flor's restaurant. The food was simply elegant. Que bueno, no?

... to be a long day.
Checking-in was a formality and I went and took a seat to wait for the 9.30am expected departure.
As I was sitting, an American traveller approached me, as I think he was looking for someone that could help translate. Unfortunately I was not that person. But he related his predicament. Apparently he and his girlfriend had crossed the border from Guatemala into Honduras, same as I had at El Florido. Unlike me, they had kept walking ...
... to the Contras but was voted down in the House of Representatives. That is when the secret deal to sell arms to Iran and then give the money to the Contras happened. There was an embargo on Nicaragua by the US which caused further hardship. I feel I understand a little better the recent history of Nicaragua. I remember hearing bits and pieces of the Sandanistas and Contras, but until you are actually there, it is hard to picture it. It is amazing how many ...
