We experience the final country in Central America, but have to bid farewell to the heroine of our tale. Dropping Annie off at the docks was gut-wrenching. 😦
I’ve been fairly negative towards monkeys lately, but I have to say: At least they keep a regular schedule. Our adventure in Costa Rica continues with a visit to Manuel Antonio National Park. We also take on our final Central American border.
After writing over 170,000 words, I decided it was time to let someone else write a few for me. In this post, my father shares his thoughts on my trip, travel in general, safety in Latin America and lots of other topics.
What better place to come face to face with nature than stunning Costa Rica? Some of our meetings were intentional, while others required a breech of barrier. 🙂
We finish up our time in Nicaragua with visits to Granada and San Juan del Sur. Then we try to successfully exit the country, which proves to be only slightly easier than our entrance.
Our time in Nicaragua begins with a visit to a man named Alberto. He has spent over 40 years carving the stone around his secluded home. It was a truly unforgettable experience.
Two words. One English, one Spanish. Both pronounced the same. I’m pretty sure that they are related. In this episode we attempt to enter Honduras (at El Amatillo) and Nicaragua (at El Espino) in the same day.
