    San Juan del Sur, Southwestern Nicaragua, Nicaragua
    A beautiful little fishing/surfers town. Nice place on the beach, coming up tourism, but still really pure. If you are here stay in arena caliente, it's in the same street as you get off the buss. Or find a nice cabinas. Arena Caliente is a great place, especially when you like surfing, a lot of local surfers are chilling here, so that gives a nice atmosphere. You get your own room for more or less 6 dollars a night. There's a kitchen and you share the toilet and shower. It isn't a new building, not for tourist with money or who likes luxury! So if that's where you're not looking for it's a great place to stay! In the night you have to go to the iguana bar or tsunami's! If they are closing you've still the sportsbar thats open, it's in the same street as the market(a great market with great comedores with really good food for a nice price!) You've also happy hours in la pelican, a really nice luxury hotel with a nice view, at wednesday and friday nights(maybe it's changed so ask the locals)! If you want to learn spanish as well, you can arrange this over there, i will recommend to stay at a host family so you will get to know the life of a nica family! I can't remember the name of the school but you have a really good school right on the beach for a good price! San Juan is a great beach place, to get in touch with the locals, learn spanish, to surf or learn to surf, and to enjoy the rum of nicaragua!

    Isla de Ometepe, Southwestern Nicaragua, Nicaragua
    Buses are infrequent but do exist. I got the impression that hitchhiking is commonplace and relatively safe (don't hold me to that, still use good judgement.) The ferries sail into Moyogalpa and Altagracia. The best place to stay on the island is the Finca Magdelena in Balgue. You can look up there website, bu you can sleep on a hammock they provide for $2.00 per night, there are other accomodations there as well. It is an Organic Coffee Cooperative, and they subsidise their income with Tourism. They offer many hikes and excursions, and cheap meals. Another very cool place to stay is with a Homestay family in the small town of Los Angeles. You can organise this with the Casa Canadiense in Managua, and I believe there are other places it is possible to organize this as well. Basically I think of Ometepe as paradise, so don't miss it, and stay as long as you can.

    Isla de Ometepe, Southwestern Nicaragua, Nicaragua
    Some very cool places to stay. Very cheap and you can get your meals there cheap as well. Check out the beach, the sand is volcanic so it's black.

    Isla de Ometepe, Southwestern Nicaragua, Nicaragua
    Isla Ometepe is an island on Lago de Nicaragua. It's made of 2 volcanoes witch you can climb. The lake is so big you think you're on an island in the sea. We climbed the Volcan Maderas, when we arrived upstairs there was a lake. The hike was really nice, lovely nature and lots of monkeys! The rest of the Island is very nice too, you can rent a bike to ride around it and check lots of nice places... To get there, you have to take a boat in Rivas.

    Isla de Ometepe, Southwestern Nicaragua, Nicaragua
    This twin volcano island hosts many monkeys that will guide your way up a steep trail that will take you into the clouds on either of the volcanoes. there are also fresh water sharks in the surrounding lake.
