Disclaimer: If you think we are trying to do to much on a "vacation", please know we are go- go travelors. We dont sit around by pools, and relaxing to us is adventure on the move! With that said, this is our itinerary slated for Oct 19-26. We are not shoppers, drinkers, or party people. we get up before the sun to max our days love to hike, photography, eat, kayak, yoga, sunrise/sunsets, surf, massage etc.....
I appreciate any tips, lodging advice, etc.... We are also vegetarian and need referrals for good eats!
SAT AM: Arrive in Managua from Miami. Head right to Leon to grab bus to Poneloya Beach onward toward the Surfing turtle Lodge on Isla Los Brasiles. Sunset horse ride, dinner, bon fire, sleep.
SUN AM: Surfing lesson & Massage. Check out at 12. Head to Leon
SUN PM: Tour Leon, Dinner at CocinArte (we are vegetarian) and stay at Hostal La Tortuga Booluda for the night.
MON AM: 8am-12pm hike cerro negro and ash board.
MON PM: 12 pm afternoon transfer to Rivas ---> SJDS for night. ( NEED ADVICE on where to stay up to 50 a night. Where to see sunset. Hike to Christ? Take Yoga Class at Zen Yoga?)
TUES Mid Morn: Travel to San Jorge ----> Ometepe Island for 2 or 3 nights staying at Totoco Eco Lodge. Hope to horse ride to san ramon falls and Kayak?
WED: spend all day/ night on Ometepe Island! Cap evening with massage.
THURS AM: Head to Laguna de Apoyo? or should we just spend a 3rd night on Ometepe? Thinking of staying at San Simian Eco Lodge here. Or should we go straight to Granada and spend 2 nights there with side trips?
FRI: Definately want to be in Granada for friday with quick stop in Masaya for some art. In grenada we are dropping off goods at an orphanage and touring the city. Staying at Hotel Plaza Colon for friday night! This is our last night and our "splurge" hotel...
SAT AM: a little early morning market shopping before heading to Airport.
I am beyond excited. And while it does include most days of travelling to places, i have hoped to keep each day under 4 hrs of travel with i think monday being our biggest ride from Leon to SJDS. Im the girl who road trips for 8 days, over 1, 000 miles and hits 6 national parks so Im sure I can handle this.
I look forward to your responses!
