After eating, we set out up the hill to go to El Fortaleza. It's a fortress built by the Spanish in 1675 to keep marauding pirates from reaching Lake Cocibolca and Granada.
We had a brief bit of rain just after we arrived at the fort so we ducked inside. There we ran into a group of 6 American teenagers and their group leader that we'd met on the boat from Los Chiles the day before. They were all living in the San Jose, Costa Rica area and had gone up into Nicaragua for 3 days to renew their 90 day visa for Costa Rica.
For lunch we had the wonderful river shrimp that had been highly recommended by people on forums. The shrimp are as big as lobster. In the afternoon we explored around the El Castillo area
