I loved this place! My room was rustic and comfortable, the food was delicious, hosts accommodating and not overbearing. Perfect! I especially loved the off the grid living.

... bank was the boundary. Lots of water birds before pulling into the jetty with soldiers at Refuge Bartolo. Time for more passport checks. Apparently the soldiers are there to keep poachers from Costa Rica away. Wonder if we'll see any skeletons because it is pretty remote here. 2.5hr hike through thick mud over a foot deep in places and quite tough to extract your boot from.

No-one seemed to be certain when the ferry left the next day, the website said 1700 but we had read that it left at 2100 or later, the locals ...
... brown rolling hills. Cyclists travelled the road on mountain bikes in various states of repair (was that my bike squeaking, or his? I found myself wondering a few times). Kids walked to river balnearios (swimming spots) with their towels and thermoses.
Out of Esteli we navigated a road that was mainly flat with some ups and downs that were so much easier than the long hills in the highlands of Guatemala and Honduras—and then we were, amazingly, looking down on ...
... talking for the sake of it one of the group. People would get on and have conversations and be cool, but at times everyone was also content in just sitting quietly without any awkwardness. This was good, as the area was very quiet and relaxed so got a bit of relaxation time in between the mad rushing either side of this trip. The place was soooo quiet, I even finally opened up and started reading my book :O The same book I took travelling last year and refuse ...
