Climbing in the mud…

Breakfast 7a.m, start 8a.m. We knew that it was going to be a long, very long day. Well, it was. 3h30 to the summit and 4h down. In between it was raining, the trail transformed either in a small river or mud pools. Terrific! our goal was the lagoon at the top of the Volcan […]

San Juan del Sur – Ometepe Island

Well, nothing special today, just an another on the road again day. Chicken bus followed the kind of ferry which make you think that you could go faster by swimming. The island looks really nice, even if we can’t see the two volcanoes. We end up in a beautiful finca close to the second volcano […]

Best nica waves!?

We wanted to improve our surf in the best waves of Nicaragua”. It will be for another time. First of all it was raining like hell when we arrived there and apparently it was the worst day of the season “wave speaking”. You should know that October is not the best month to travel through […]

Tamarindo – San Juan del Sur

Nicaragua here we are. Today is crossing border day, apparently the worst crossing of the whole trip. So we decided to take an international bus which, although being a bit more expensive, should speed up the process of crossing. It did, beside the fact that we had to wait a couple of hours on the […]

Party time

Well meeting 3 friends in Costa Rica does not happen too often, having met Cedric and Mily (kind of planed) and Steffi from Laax (walking around) we decided that we had to go partying… By coincidence, that night at Babylon there is a Reggae festival which we won’t miss although the entrance fee of 7$ […]

Diving Isla Catalina

So, finally today was time to dive again! The target is the Isla Catalina, around 45 min of navigation from Tamarindo. It is our first dive in this side of the pacific so we’re exited about maybe seeing mantas, eagle rays and sharks…During the boat ride we see couple of Green Turtles couples having their […]

Monteverde – Tamarindo

As usual we had to wake up at 5a.m to take the first bus to Tamarindo. We had rode that this road was Costa Rica’s worst! Well it was. First of all, the early bus was canceled, which is really annoying when the only reason why you woke up that morning is to take this […]

Today we decided to do some “adventurous” stuff… Canopy gliding, aka Tirolean lines. Basically you glide on an cable from a three to another using a pulley. Sounds like fun to me, Sarah tells me that it’s ok (she already did it in CH) but not the biggest thrill ever. We go anyway to see […]

Arenal – Monteverde

Instead of doing 8 hours bus, we had the choice to take a jeep-boat-jeep trip a little bit more expensive but saving us at least 4 hours. They have apparently improved the road because it was a van-boat-van..less adventurous! Anyway the boat trip on the lake located just behind the volcano was beautiful. At our […]

Hot springs by Volcan Arenal

The perfect volcano cone in la Fortuna is still active and you can always see fumes smoking from the top as well as lava flowing the volcano sides. That’s what we did tonight, watching the lava. We took a trail in the forest in order to go nearer, but still far enough not to be […]

Canoe – Jungle Trail

The wake up was early, 5a.m., because you know it is always better to paddle along the river when it is not too hot and being before other groups is a good idea as well. The first our was perfect. We could hear the howler monkey from deep in the jungle, admire lots of birds, […]

San Jose – Tortugero

After 4 hours bus, we had to take a boat to arrive at Trotuguero. A wonderful journey. The river was meandering and the boat “carving”. We even saw two alligators on the way!!! Rules n°3: even if you are hot, don’t put your hand in the water…Tortuguero was a quiet fishermen village reconverted in a […]

Cerro Punta – Neilly

Today we went walking to Guadalupe, a tiny town above 2000m… really cool, we almost stay another night but then we decide to move to Costa Rica. Through winding roads we get to a small border consisting of two houses connected by a dirt road. Really smooth to cross, this the Rio Sereno border. And […]

Diving Bocas del Toro

After a we-gonna-do-nothing day(no, no! no hangover), let’s enjoy a two tank boat dive. We start by the dolphin watch in the bay, pretty cool. A pitty that we are not allowed to go swimming with them. The dives are ok, nothing special. The visibility is about 5m and the water is very warm, maybe […]
