Another fun fact about the Rio San Juan, is that it was orginally going to be the site for the Central American Canal, the whole city of Greytown is a result of that expectancy. However the US in the end decided that Panama was more practical. Although now it seems very likely that China is going to build one here, which will be horrible for the environment.

Crossing a bay into another country with thunder, lighting, rain, and wind on the water is an eye opening moment.

In Nicaragua there is color and cobble stone streets. Once through ...
