Day 33: From Nicaragua to Costa Rica by foot

Leaving Nicaragua

We’re on a bus to Liberia, Costa Rica! Customs was a breeze albeit troublesome. Having travelled for 4 hours by minivan, ferry, and chicken bus to the border, the last thing you wanna do is haul your backpack and walk a kilometre in the scorching sun from Nicaragua to Costa Rica. Continued 繼續看…

Day 32: An island made of two volcanoes

Volcan Concepcion rising in the distance

We’ve been struggling for days whether or not to visit Ometepe – an island that came into existence when twin volcanoes Concepcion and Maderas erupted in Lake Nicaragua. Getting there wasn’t a problem, but seeing the island properly would be tough primarily due to the lack of frequent public transportation. Getting from the pier to the next interesting town alone takes 1.5 to 2 hours. And we didn’t have enough info to figure out where we should go for the best views. Continued 繼續看…

第二十八天: 旅遊首個月的最後一天,也是我們快要發瘋的一天。

由於這裡很熱,所以街頭有很多新鮮果汁售賣

終於決定離開列昂 (Leon) 往格拉納達 (Granada) 進發。一切都順利,直至由馬拉瓜 (Managua) 坐巴士去格拉納達那一程,我開始鼓燥難耐,皆因實在很熱。雖然車開得快時有風,但坐在窗口位的我不停被 Continued 繼續看…

Day 26: Ever thought about boarding down an active volcano??

Well.. you can here in Nicaragua! Volcano boarding was developed over 4 years ago on Cerro Negro, a charcoal black cinder volcano standing proudly at an elevation of 728m. Cerro Negro is active, with its last major eruption in 1999 spewing so much ash it covered the town of Leon (where we are staying), 25km away. Continued 繼續看…
