San Juan Del Sur – NICARAGUA

20 02 2011

After 2 days, 1 boat, 2 border crossings, 3 taxis and 2 long haul bus rides we FINALLY left Bocas behind us. It was a very easy to get stuck there!

We have arrived in the beautiful Nicaraguan town of San Juan Del Sur, the town is built around a stunning bay on the Pacific coast. The weather is extremely toasty but the ocean water is icey which is a nice contrast to the bath water we have had in the Caribbean. Plus we get amazing over water sunsets!!! The locals are really friendly – reminds us of a Balinese vibe.

The food is great – $2 tacos, and we have been dining in the local cantina’s where the head waitress is a 10 year old girl who is amazing at her job! She serves in her school uniform and I’m sure gets great tips.

We have been travelling with a group from the hostel in Bocas, 9 of us in total – 8 girls and Matt! How did he get so lucky.

Next stop is a small town up the coast called Popoyo – we’ll post more pics soon!
