We have been in Nicaragua for a few days now and unfortunately we are getting ready to leave this lovely country to travel to our final country of the trip, Costa Rica, but we have had a good time here.
Our first stop, after travelling via Managua, was the town of Grenada. While there we had a look around town, saw some lovely colonial buildings, went swimming, had some good food and visited an active volcano. That is one more thing off of my bucket list but the fumes did make my throat and eyes hurt despite wearing gas masks when we were at the edge of the crater.
After Grenada we travelled to Ometepe Island, in the middle of Lake Nicaragua. Here we did some kayaking, walking around what we could of a flooded national park, swam in the shark infested lake and enjoyed the lovely scenery. Unfortunately Charlie didn’t feature in any photos from Ometepe as they were mainly water based, and he preferred to stay in the hotel where it was dry.
I wish that me and Charlie could have visited more of this country, after wanting to come here for so long, so we will have to return again at some point.
