Nicaragua-my favorite country in Central America
Managua-is it really as sketchy as everyone says? Probably.
Granada-Nicaragua's colonial gem (and one of only two places with white people [the other being Little Corn Island])
Cruising though the islands nearby Granada
Big Corn Island
Las Penitas (beach near Leon)
Volcano surfing-as stupidly dangerous as it sounds (the bottom of my sled almost set on fire due to the speed I accumulated and the associated friction)
Laguna de Apoyo
Miraflor-farm homestay (a definite highlight of the trip; check out my "treehouse")
Matagalpa and Esteli (coffee country)
Jinotega and misc. highlands
San Raphael del Norte
Ometepe Island (an incredible place)
Somoto-where I almost died from getting sucked into a whirlpool. Still, it's a gorgeous spot.
San Juan del Sur
