  • Central America - Week 27 & 28 We left La Fortuna early morning and made it to Los Chiles, at the border with Nicaragua at 11am. Everything went well despite the longish wait for a connecting bus on the way. Posted by lebrunfo in The travelling frogs | Apr 24, 2011
  • NicaraguaThe first stop in Nicaragua was a little beach town called San Juan del Sur, only 45 minutes from the Costa Rican border. The place was full of backpackers but very relaxed and the tour bus crowd was pleasantly Posted by mwalmsle in Jess and Mike's Excellent Adventure | Apr 21, 2011
  • Sunny San Juan del Sur and Obscure OmetepeFrom Granada we journeyed to San Jan del Sur –a long stretch of beach on the southern pacific coast of Nicaragua. We ended up staying in a cheap hotel the first night, which was likely the worst accommodation we Posted by A-Team in A-Team Adventures | Apr 5, 2011
  • LEÓN-Las Peñitas-JIQUILILLOAfter hot Granada we were off to León. We really liked León: it had a special vibe. Being more of a student city, it’s always been a bit more revolutionary than its neighboring ones. Although slightly older and unorganized, compared Posted by hmontonen in Henrik and Laura in South America | Mar 31, 2011
  • Greetings from GranadaWe pulled into Granada in the middle of the day and started the search for a place to stay. As we get closer to April and further down south, the temperature is rising and with backpacks on in the Posted by A-Team in A-Team Adventures | Mar 30, 2011
  • Willy Goat GruffI really liked Granada. It's one of my favourite towns so far. The central square is vast, filled with street stalls and has a raised platform in the centre where they have concerts and latin dancing. The church is painted Posted by ew5827 in From Mexico to who knows where | Mar 27, 2011
  • Towns and TurtlesWandering around with all our bags in probably the hottest town we'd visited wasn't so fun! We hadn't booked a hostel and as places were fully booked we were regretting it! Luckily, the hostel we eventually ended up at was Posted by ew5827 in From Mexico to who knows where | Mar 27, 2011
  • Four buses, two ferries, a taxi, four cashpoints and a mouseSo there I am busy enjoying the delights of Isla de Ometepe when I realise I am running out of cash. My blissful state of mind (see the "Magical Isla de Ometepe" entry) is temporarily interrupted by this reality. When Posted by cmarks in On your Marks | Mar 22, 2011
  • Magical Isla de OmetepeThe twin volcanic peaks of Isla de Ometepe rise out of the vast Lago de Nicaragua (a seemingly endless lake which feels more like the sea with its waves and freshwater sharks). I arrive on the ferry as the sun Posted by cmarks in On your Marks | Mar 21, 2011
  • Coffee breakI leave the heat of the city behind for a couple of days in the mountains to check out the Nicaraguan cloudforest and the coffee for which the region is famous. Selva Negra reminds me a little of Australia's blue Posted by cmarks in On your Marks | Mar 9, 2011
  • Nicaraguan citiesKeen to spend as little time as possible in Managua, Nicaragua's capital, I head for Leon and Granada which quickly become my favourite cities in Central America. Most of the major cities here are dirty, unfriendly and chaotic, and you Posted by cmarks in On your Marks | Mar 7, 2011
  • Languid in La Ceiba, León and Las PeñitasWe left Utila early in the morning by ferry and were picked up by a taxi on the other end, heading towards the Omega Tours jungle lodge along the Congrejal River. The company was recommended by travelers, friends and Posted by A-Team in A-Team Adventures | Mar 25, 2011
  • News in BriefNicaragua is exhausting. The western part of the country is such a backpacker paradise and it has really knackered me out. Great towns which are perfect bases for exploring the countryside around, loads of hostels, everything is cheap, the locals Posted by tgilmour in Viaje interminable | Mar 24, 2011
  • NicaraguaSo we arrived in Granada a couple of days ago.. It's beautiful but full of tourists and mosquitoes! We only stayed for 2 days and just explored the town a little bit and also took a chocolate making course where Posted by ThatsLife in Some People Wanna Speed It Up... | Mar 23, 2011
  • NicaraguaSo my last blog entry was when we were heading to Rivas. Rivas is a very bizarre place. It was like man city... There were no women anywhere!! We got off the bus from Managua and went straight to the closest Posted by ThatsLife in Some People Wanna Speed It Up... | Mar 18, 2011
  • Surfing in San Juan del SurEs ist in den letzten Tagen etwas still um uns gewesen und das hat seine Begruendung darin, dass wir uns im Surfen versucht haben. Um das moeglichst effizient und praktisch durchzufuehren, haben wir in einem Hostel direkt am Strand von Posted by PollyPanam in Central & South America | Mar 17, 2011
  • The chocolate castleThe wide streets of Estelí to seemed far away when we reached the busy town of Matagalpa. Still is was a chance to catch up on some internet stuff (not that you'd believe me) and we also got to visit Posted by ew5827 in From Mexico to who knows where | Mar 12, 2011
  • Isla de OlmetepeEs ist unglaublich, aber eine knappe Stunde Schifffahrt ueber Nicaraguas groessten Binnensee bringt uns auf die Isla de Olmetepe und etwa 50 Jahre zurueck in der Zeitrechnung. Hier werden Bohnensaecke noch auf dem Pferd von A nach B ueber die Posted by PollyPanam in Central & South America | Mar 12, 2011
  • NicaraguaWell we arrived in Managua a couple of days ago and I can see already it has a much more vibrant personality than Costa Rica, although it seems to be a much poorer country. Our first attempt at crossing the border Posted by ThatsLife in Some People Wanna Speed It Up... | Mar 11, 2011
  • karibik ade...Wir mussten uns verabschieden, von den traumhaften Straenden, den unglaublichen Sonnenuntergaengen, der Schwerelosigkeit in den Weiten des Meeres, dem Umherschwingen in der Haengematte und nicht zu letzt von den Leuten mit denen wir die letzten Tage verbr Posted by yasmine769 in Central & South America | Mar 9, 2011
  • Where is Señor Gutiérrez?We moved on from Somoto in the afternoon after the canyon trip. Only a couple of hours down the road is another town, bigger than Somoto, called Estelí. There's a couple of reserves near Estelí and one caught our eye Posted by ew5827 in From Mexico to who knows where | Mar 9, 2011
  • It doesn't always go to planAs we left Perquín, El Salvador early in the morning we knew we had a lot of connections ahead of us, but if everything went to plan we should be there by mid afternoon...but when does anything go to plan!

  • Food!As many of you know, Gary and I are quite enthusiastic eaters. Part of the adventure of travelling is sampling the rich variety of foods available. Many times the hardest decision of the day is where to eat Posted by the Greens in Greens in central america | Mar 9, 2011
  • Nicaragua: San Juan del sur, Isla Ometepe, GranadaSan Juan del Sur felt very touristy and a bit pricier than I expected. However, it’s known to have the best surf spots in Nicaragua and that is mainly why we decided to go there. But the truth is that San Posted by hmontonen in Henrik and Laura in South America | Mar 9, 2011
  • Nicaraguan adventuresOur trip from Roatan through Honduras to Nicaragua can best be summed up the following way: One flight, 3 buses, 4 taxis, stopping overnight in grim Tegucigalpa where we got the advice not to leave the hotel if we could Posted by pimenmalka in Pim & Malka take Central America | Feb 19, 2011
