Nicaragua: It's a country with individuals that are very friendly.
Bad things: The garbage. This nation needs a public education campaign supported by sustainable and responsible infrastructure and applications for recycling and garbage. It's what it is although In addition, it is difficult to see cows and dogs and horses. Transport within the nation is also expensive by our standards. If you prefer air conditioning and a pool for dips at the end of the 20, so is lodging. Not much English spoken here (which is our fault for not studying Spanish!) .
Good things? Everything else. The people (nicas or nicaraguenses) are welcoming and warm. The roads are great and while drivers are crazy from what we're accustomed to, there does not appear to be what and road rage appears to proceed at a fashion.
This is a state, while some people seem bad and it seems like its
Taxpayers are cared for (that is why it a very bad idea to give money to kids who beg. When they should be in college, they are used by their parents as workers. Everyone becomes educated here.) And nobody is starving. There appears to be a sense of family here.
The food is wonderful. We have eaten all over and have not had one meal that was mediocre or bad. We stay away from the beaches for lunch and dinner and pay $ 5-7 to get a meal that is excellent.
It is very windy which alleviates the heat. although it is a pain on the shore makes the heat bearable.
Cordobas that we like are used by them. We favor Cords wherever possible although Additionally, there are US dollars.
This place is wonderful. Next time we want to stop by Leon and the shores closer to this city.
I have copied and pasted a post I made regarding a few drivers at the SJDS and Granada places. I hope you decide to go to!
Hi there. I've got two driver referrals. .
We were known by A member of the FB group in Granada to Ramiro Arana with Adventours. Hehas air, prices, great very responsive and is very knowledgeable. Ramiro was sick so he ordered for his coworker to pick us up and take us everywhere, when we came we needed to go. Luis spoke good English was beautiful and filled us in on geography, history and the culture of Nicaragua. He interpreted to receive my phone that was unlocked a SIM card and brought us. We were given a tour of the Masaya volcano by him and dropped us and picked us up. He did the same when the Puma trail improved on Mombacho. Ramiro and luis made our visit to Granada and fun and we're thankful to have met with them.
We're now through Ramiro and in San Juan Del Sur have met with with a guy named Byron Navarro. His rates are extremely good and it's wonderful to have the ability to view things that are happening through wireless security cameras and to arrange for pickup away from the grocery store as opposed to waiting for a taxi. Byron is charging us less than the collectivos to get back to our holiday rental in the Talanguera region from downtown. For us to get to beaches, the same charges we need at the end of the day and as the shuttles but picks us up here. Byron has an air conditioned vehicle is extremely nice, and he speaks English well.
