We just finished up 3 weeks in Nicaragua. As you are reading this, we are on a bus on our way to Honduras. But before we hit the border, we wanted to share some of our favorite pics from our time in Nicaragua.
Our first stop in Nicaragua was the old colonial city of Leon.

From Leon, we headed to Granada, another colonial city on the banks of Lake Nicaragua, the largest lake in Central America.
We took a day trip to do some hiking at Masaya volcano, about 45 minutes from Granada.
Next stop for us was San Juan del Sur. We came to San Juan so Kyle could learn how to surf, but we were surprised by the beauty of the place. We are also super lucky and it turned out to be the Arribada, the mass nesting of the Olive Ridley turtles. We don’t have pics of the turtles (it was the middle of the night and we chose to just soak it in rather than focusing on trying to take a decent photo in no light) or of Kyle surfing. But we still have a few fave shots from this beautiful town on the Pacific. You can click here to read about our night with the turtles.
From here, we headed to the volcanic island of Ometepe in Lake Nicaragua. It is an island formed from 2 volcanoes, one of which is still active.
There are still loads of stories to tell about our time in Nicaragua, and we intend to tell them in the coming weeks. But we’re looking forward to new adventures in Honduras as well.
You can follow our adventures in real time on our Facebook page, Twitter feed, or Instagram. We post photos and stories daily. Come hang out with us.
Awesome post and photos!
