Highs & Lows
The beauty of the landscapes (jungle, volcanoes, beach...) despite a very poor country trying to recover from the civil war
Being a blonde tourist (Nicaraguans don't know respect and limits sometimes...)
Q & A
What would you have changed?
I would have rented a scooter to make the most of every corner of the ometepe island, and I would have stayed longer to acclimatize to the heat and then climbed the volcanoes !
How was the food?
- Los chinitos in Léon : a buffet restaurant for 50/70 quetzal with a full plate ! - The garden cafe in Granada : a little high price but excellent breakfasts - El Burrito Loco in Granada : the best burrito in the country for really cheap !
What tips would you give a friend?
Negotiate all prices, buses, activities (unless organized) taxis, markets...
Rain jacket even before the rainy season, Lavender essential oil for mosquito bites or other insects.
The country is well served by chicken buses, for the less patient, many shuttles are available (faster but for a much higher price)
