📸 Granada & San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua

November 2017 we spent a month in Nicaragua between these two destinations. We loved the food, the hot weather and the sandy beaches. San Juan del Sur is most famously known for “Sunday Funday” so instead of having this spot as a in-and-out stop, we spent weeks here watching people come and go.

Nicaragua’s #1 beer, Toña. Costs about 1$, tastes like Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Power outages are a very common thing here, so candles are handy!
The power is out… again
We hiked all the way to the big ol’ Jesus statue, in 31 degrees weather. You will never believe how sweaty we were.
That’s how sweaty I was.
Cristo de le Misericordia. Telling everyone to basically chill out and love each other.

Hurricane Nate hit Nicaragua about a month ago. Docks, beachside restaurants were destroyed, many boats were stranded on the beach. This boat was on it’s side, half covered in sand when we got here. Every day, this guy comes here and digs this boat out WITH A SHOVEL. Hopefully we’ll see the boat back in the water before we leave!
Typical meal: Chicken cooked on a charcoal grill, gallo pinto (rice & beans) and fried plantains.
Great performance at Trivia Night. Our amazing team hails from Australia, Germany & the US.
