I suppose everybody knows the great Grand Canyon in United States. Definitely one of the world’s wonders. But what about its smaller brother in central america? Is it really worth to pay a visit to this 8 km long canyon on the north of Nicaragua? Well, believe me, it’s more than worthy. This part of […]

Visiting Alberto

I read about Alberto Guterriez for the first time long time ago, even before my trip around central america started. From that moment I knew I want to visit him and see all those amazing carvings. And so I planned this visit carefully when the right time came. For those who don’t know who Alberto is […]

Leon, my most favourite city in Nicaragua

22 Jul , 2015   Gallery

20150721-Leon-200

As usually, I didn’t plan to stay in Leon for 3 weeks. And as usually, this is why I love long term travelling so much. No deadlines and so much freedom. Let me be honest – after 4 months of constant moving and travelling I was pretty exhausted and needed a break. Just 1 or […]

I was lucky enough to be in Leon on 19th of July 2015 during the celebration of Sandista Revolution Day. I couldn’t imagine a better place to visit than Museo de la Revolucion, especially when my guides were the real revolution participants.

Most of the Pacific cities like San Juan del Sur, Granada or Masaya are stable destinations for the most backpackers. Well built infrastructure and tons of hostels, bars and fun. However, I also wanted to visit less known areas and the best choice was definitely Caribbean side. Especially the area around river San Juan on the south is spectacular. Most […]

Volcano boarding

Volcano boarding was definitely the craziest thing I have ever done in my life. It was on my bucket list for a very long time and Leon in Nicaragua is the most famous place where you can do it. There are many companies which organise it but only one is the right one – Quetzaltrekkers. Why are […]

Managua

Everybody was saying don’t go to Managua, it’s not worthy. Even big backpackers like Nomadic Matt. However, I didn’t want to believe there’s nothing to see and explore in the capital of Nicaragua. Once again, it’s only up to you how much you trust other people’s opinion. For me Managua was very interesting. But it all […]

Granada and Masaya

20150614-Granada-245

Granada and Masaya are quite touristic Nicaraguan cities. Granada well known for its colonial architecture and Masaya because of its artesian market. What I however love about all cities in Nicaragua are their local markets full of people selling tons of crap, fruits, vegetables but mainly tasty and cheap street food. Granada Our ride from Ometepe […]

We were very lucky because during our stay in San Juan del Sur there were ISA World Surfing Games 2015 in Popoyo beach. It wasn’t very far so why not to go there. The only problem with travelling to remote villages is usually the transportation so I wasn’t very surprised when it started to be complicated. […]

After almost 7 weeks in Costa Rica it was the right time to move to Nicaragua. I was very curious whether all those rumors about chicken buses, cheap hostels and food are true. I decided to start my trip in San Juan del Sur. Despite its small size this village is probably the most touristic place […]
