  • Ometepe Island, NicaraguaLake Nicaragua is the largest fresh water lake in Central America. It is so large that it gives the feeling of an ocean, especially when on the little lancha (passenger boat) that we had to ride over the big waves Posted by Robin-and-Kevin in Adventures of Kevin and Robin | Apr 30, 2013
  • Why Nicaragua?Vulcano´s The country is surrounded with vulcano´s. After a couple hikes I will give a top 3 list. This Saturday I experienced the new sport vulcano boarding. On top of the vulcano I slided down with a board. It was really Posted by Tom-mytrip in The dots will connect down the road | Apr 28, 2013
  • Va Pues!I squeezed in a three-day excursion to Granada, Nicaragua. "Va Pues" is the signature colloquial expression in Nicaragua, and I gather it is similar to the American expression “Git ‘r’ done!” Granada is a charming, small city on the west Posted by clarkmw78 in Matt's Misadventures | Apr 22, 2013
  • Fair?Full moon, nice weather, local music, entertainment on the street...shortely; a great atmosphere on Saturday night in Granada. So far so good. Later.

  • GranadaWir kommen also in Granada so gegen mittag an. Wir finden ein sehr nettes hostel mit kuche und pool fur schlappe 20 dollar, der markt ist auch nur ein block entfernt. Ein perfekter ort um bewerbungen zu schreiben, krank zu Posted by cobblestone in Cobblestone | Mar 5, 2013

  • Viva NicaOur first acquaintance in Managua was a 2 inch scorpion... Managua is scary enough without one of these in your dorm. We spend 20 minutes trying to remove him from one of the guys packs unharmed, until a worker walked Posted by CSQUARED in The American Dream | Feb 16, 2013
  • A Haircut at Laguna de ApoyoAt the lake I cut his hair. I couldn't stop laughing at first because I was making a mess of it, but then I made myself calm down so I wouldn't end up snipping his scalp or my finger. I Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 16, 2012
  • Midnight FerryOn Friday night after walking two miles in the thick, black heat to wait for 3.5 hours on a wooden bench in the ferry terminal, I wondered why we ever thought it was a good idea to take the 12:30 Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 15, 2012
  • TranquiloI am sitting on a bench outside our room watching two black piglets rooting in the clover. In the distance, Volcán Concepción's massive bulk is finally reappearing after days of obscurement. The faraway lake, whipped at the edges into a Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 12, 2012
  • Language ProblemsAn odd end to an otherwise peaceful day: After dinner tonight we went to the same restaurant as yesterday to order our piña licuado, but this time the proprietor was abrupt with us when we ordered. Yesterday his courtesy had been Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 11, 2012
  • A Bit of ComfortWhen you are traveling you feel you must write about your day. Each day is special, never to be lived again, and if you don't record it, you have consigned it to oblivion. With the pressure mounting, a sort of Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 9, 2012
  • Charco VerdeIt must be late--I can barely keep my eyes open--and yet Chris tells me it's only 7 pm. We walked to Charco Verde today and hiked around the surrounding "bosque seco," which once again reminded us of California--perhaps the eucalyptus Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 9, 2012
  • Fiesta and FireworksEndless fireworks tonight for the fiesta celebrating Nicaragua's patron saint. Tomorrow we will be in Isla de Ometepe, but for some reason I don't believe it. There's nothing unbelievable about it, and yet--I simply don't. I don't believe anything right Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 6, 2012
  • Homesick?I long for home. A clear winter day, the weak sunlight filtering through bare trees. The smell of smoke. Danish butter cookies and all manner of unhealthy treats. All the grocery stores tackily decorated, announcing specials on anything red or Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 6, 2012
  • Meet LeonI am a little surprised by Leon. I think I expected from the descriptions for it to seem more like Oaxaca or San Cristobal de Las Casas, but it has a much more lived-in look. That is to say it's Posted by chschen in Teenie Travels | Dec 4, 2012
  • Another Day in ParadiseOne of our projects during this adventure is to find a place, or a few places, where we would like to return and live for several months. We have determined that we are beach people; we need sun, warmth, Posted by ceastburn in Sunny and Cricket's Terruffic Adventure | Jan 12, 2013
  • Managua, Nicaragua Went for a nice dip in a volcanic lake yesterday morning. It's funny how heavy we feel in that water after swimming in the ocean! The water was very clear and refreshing. Returning to Managua, we checked out the Posted by ceastburn in Sunny and Cricket's Terruffic Adventure | Jan 8, 2013

  • Nicaragua, where nature shows off Up until fairly recently, I couldn’t tell you a thing about Nicaragua. I may have even looked for it on a map of Africa. But now, after visiting I can tell you lots. I can tell you all about the Posted by elyshahickey in Wanderlysh | Nov 14, 2012
