  • Days 45 – 49: Isla de Ometepe – San Juan del SurThe journey from Ometepe to San Juan del Sur was quite an experience.

  • Days 41-44: Leon – Granada – Isla de Ometepe After a good night’s sleep (volcano climbing is tiring!) we had a slow start before making our way to Granada, Nicaragua’s oldest colonial City – a relatively easy journey (other than Sara Posted by Joe and Sarah in Joe & Sarah's Travels | Jul 16, 2012
  • Day 4Another great day, for mostly the same reasons also. Work today was more labor intensive. The main thing I did was chip away at the extra cement. It was actually kind of fun—I had a hatchet in my hand, and Posted by ilikecheerios in Nicaragua | Jul 12, 2012
  • Day 39 & 40: Leon (Nicaragua) An early pancake breakfast was in order as we were picked up at 8am for a trip to Cerro Negro, one of the most active volcanoes in Central America. It last erupted in 1999 and erupts on Posted by Joe and Sarah in Joe & Sarah's Travels | Jul 12, 2012
  • Day 3 Today was awesome. Work today was tough. My usual partners went to another community today, and so I was mostly on my own, with help from some of the locals. It was confusing and the outcome wasn;t great. We couldn't Posted by ilikecheerios in Nicaragua | Jul 12, 2012
  • Day 2 I will start off by saying that today was much more satisfying than yesterday. Yesterday, I went to bed with a heart heavy with doubts and homesickness. I realized, even as I was typing up the entry, that while Nicaragua Posted by ilikecheerios in Nicaragua | Jul 11, 2012
  • clase de españolThe pace of our Spanish classes has really been picking up lately. Last week, Heidi and I were not enjoying Spanish class as much as we did in Antigua. As we quickly learned, no one compares to Angelica and Hellen. Posted by AnzelcL in Central America 2012 | Jul 10, 2012
  • Adios Jimmy...With Jimmy's departure, I've made a move into Heidi's room per the request of Rosita. We're now sharing what we like to call a suite. With two double beds, three gold couches and our own bathroom, we really feel like Posted by AnzelcL in Central America 2012 | Jul 10, 2012
  • Day 1The night before: The night before was restless. I, being used to a nocturnal schedule, as usual could not go to bed at a reasonable time. The whole paranoia about mosquitoes and Malaria and Dengue fever and mice and whatnot returned, Posted by ilikecheerios in Nicaragua | Jul 9, 2012
  • There's a clown on my bus...On Saturday, Heidi and I took a bus (or rather a series of buses and a pedicab) to Leon. As you might have guessed, there was a clown on our bus. We're not really sure what his angle was, as Posted by AnzelcL in Central America 2012 | Jul 9, 2012
  • Hello from Nicaragua!So after another boring airplane ride, I arrived at Managua at around 11. Even though it was overcast, the humidity made me regret changing into jeans. We went through customs rather fast, the language barrier was not an obstacle. And Posted by ilikecheerios in Nicaragua | Jul 8, 2012
  • VolunteeringHeidi, Jimmy and I had no idea what were getting ourselves into when we decided we wanted to help out at the local preschool for a few hours each day. The preschool serves about 80 children. There is one large Posted by AnzelcL in Central America 2012 | Jul 5, 2012

  • Public Bus from Managua to RivasThe bus slowly backs out and is being directed by two men outside who are barefoot.
