Los Almendros de Ocotal
Travel Blogs from Playa Ocotal
It's been a few days since we last wrote and I'd love to regale you with tales of adventure...all Pirates and treasure and the like. However, since this is our decompression downtime, you'll have to make-do with a near-death experience and an unsolved mystery whodunnit.
