Week 1 = Granada. Spanish lessons and Volunteer at Orphanage. Also vampire bat caves at night, active volcanoes and zip lining.
Week 2 - After week one we have no set plans. The following is a good guess at best:
- Ferry to Ometeppe island (twin active volcanoes and monkeys) on Lake Nicaragua (only fresh water lake with sharks in the world) for a couple of days.
- 12 hr overnight ferry ride (described as a puke fest)to San Carlos then boat down the Rio San Juan to El Castillo (huge Fort form 1500's) with jungle hikes, croc watching at night, and manitee's.
- boat back up the Rio San Juan and then a bladder busting bus ride towards Juigalpa(cattle country) or until someone has to use the Bano's.
Week 3 - We have even less of a plan for week three. Kind of planning on keep busing up towards Matagalpa, Esteli(coffee plantations) and then Leon (volcano sliding and petroglyphs). Maybe a couple of days in Leon before heading back towards Granada. Finish off with a day of shopping in Masaya and a couple of days in San Juan del Sur (surf and turf time) before flying home on Mar 19/2010.
