Just like last Summer I get weekends off work to travel and enjoy Nicaragua. This weekend a lot of us went to San Juan Del Sur. I did a lot of relaxing on the beach and swimming, took a really cool boat ride, and did some hiking. It was a really cool town and absolutely stunning…
At the top of the highest peak stands this statue of Cristo de la Misericordia. It is really pretty and is lit up at night.
The view from the top.
Really nice sunset. Amazing how much difference in color 5 minutes makes.
Dinner. I ate an octopus.
Then we found this bad boy in our hostel bathroom. It is called a whip spider and I think it is a really cool part of nature.
We still politely asked it to move outside 🙂
On the way home we stopped for a nice view of Lake Nicaragua. I think this picture shows a little bit of how Nicaragua is progressing. Even though it is still largely agrarian, a lot of good progress is being made in developing the country.
