Only in Central America Pt. 2: Things that Would Never Fly at Home

Hello lovelies! A few weeks ago I wrote a list of things that happen in Central America that would never fly at home (Part One). They are the quirky little things that make Central America well..

Happy Thanksgiving! A Day Late..

I realize it’s a day late and I swear I was going to write this post yesterday buttt then I ate.. and had a few glasses of wine and then decided that a nap would be a better idea. So! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This is the first year that I spent Thanksgiving away from my […]

Meet Me at the Mermaid Lagoon

The day we smeared bat poop on our faces, swam through a cave with only a candle to light our way, and swam in the turquoise waters of Semuc Champey while little fishies nibbled at our feet.

A Mom’s Relief Mission

As every fellow traveler knows when the parental units or unit join up on an adventure it’s like Christmas. Goodbye 22 people rooms with their everlasting cloud of mildew and hello luxury hotel! No more snoring bed neighbors and poop paper trash cans, oh no we are on the up and up people! About three […]

As in many Central American countries, in Nicaragua the main mode of transportation is by bus. Nicaragua has an excellent bus system: efficient, cheap, and quite the experience.

Escaping the Nicaraguan Heat: La Laguna de Apoyo

The struggle is real when it comes to the heat in Granada, Nicaragua. I’ve heard that the heat is worse in León, *inwardly groans*, but unlike in León the beach is not a quick day trip. Although Granada does have the Laguna de Apoyo. Last weekend we took a quick trip with our friends, Siobhan […]
