La Fortuna, north from San Jose in Costa Rica, is a gem of a city. Lots of wonderful things to do in this volcanic regions, and La Fortuna is most famous for hikes and hotsprings. It also features a few other attractions, like the chocolate/coffee tours, and a few eco parks where you can explore […]

During my trip across Costa Rica, I rented a 4×4 and made my way up north towards the border with Nicaragua. After visiting La Fortuna and the nearby volcano mountains I turned back south to tackle some rough roads to get up the mountain to the Monteverde mountain top getaway, famous for its adventure zip-lining […]

16 Sep, 2018 in Cienfuegos

Coming down from Havana and Vinales to explore a bit of central Cuba, I only had a day to spend in Cienfuegos, but even during that day I was able to see and explore quite a lot, much in thanks to my very friendly and efficient Airbnb host. After taking half a day to explore Castillo […]

28 Aug, 2018 in Cienfuegos

Coming down south from Havana Cuba to explore the southern coastline, I had very limited time to visit Cienfuegos and see the area. I arrived at my airbnb with a lovely local host, and asked for help in trying to make the most. With his help, I was able to really see a lot of the […]

16 Jul, 2018 in San Jose

There are a few nice attractions away from Costa Rica’s capital San Jose that are worth stopping by. I fast realized I’d rather venture out of San Jose and rented a car to explore the region. On my various excursions in the area I was looking for somewhere to chill for a couple of hours […]

14 Jul, 2018 in Vinales

When visiting Cuba I landed in Havana and spend a few days exploring, and I then headed out for a circular tour of Cuba, starting from northwestern Cuba in the Vinales region. It’s a beautiful country side with lots to see and explore, and some people linger for long. I did a daytrip from Havana […]

La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park was a bit of a surprise. It was my first “eco” attraction in Costa Rica and after having heard of how well Costa Rica does eco preservation I admit to expecting a very authentic dirty jungle experience with tarzan guides taking us on an adventure. La Paz is not […]

25 Jun, 2018 in Granada

Granada was, by far, my favorite place in Nicaragua. Yeah, I guess I’m a bit spoiled, and Granada is so more easier to like than everything else I visited in Nicaragua, so it is possible that if I had longer to linger and explore the rest and took more time to get used to things, […]

11 Jun, 2018 in Nicaragua

Some of the greatest attractions in Nicaragua are about volcanoes. There are active volcanoes in Nicaragua that you can get very close to. Typically, like in the Masaya Volcano I visited coming up from Granada on the way to Leon, Exposure time is limited to 15 minutes, tightly controlled, and after going through some basic […]

5 Jun, 2018 in Granada

Was looking for something fun to do near Granada and someone mentioned to me I should head down to the east coast a short drive from Granada to check out Isletas de Granada, the small islands of Granada where the Nicaraguan expat wealthy have turned small islands into small kingdoms. You bargain a bit for a […]
