See this TripWow and more at tripwow.tripadvisor.com Slideshow from Laguna de Apoyo "After a few days in Granada, I went down the the Laguna de Apoyo for a week of Spanish class. I wanted a few days in a peaceful quiet setting, and I figured I had finally been able to absorb and apply what I´d learned in San Cristobal-- so I was ready to do a little more. Laguna de Apoyo is a fresh water lake in a dormant volcano`s crater. The land around it is a natural reserve and filled with tons of birds and howler monkeys. The school I chose is a actually side project for a biological research station that´s been operating in Nicaragua for at least 20 years. They are pretty famous among fish people for discovering and describing three species of fish that are found only in the laguna. Also, their latest research suggests that a high incidence of blindness in native fish is linked to a parasite that has flourished since a nonnative tilapia was introduced 15 years ago. I got to learn more about the blind fish when I went diving with my Spanish teacher who´s also a biologist that specializes in fish. (He also does a weekly bird survey, identifying each by song.) The blind fish we saw was just sitting on the bottom where it is flat and sandy and where he is least likely to swim into obstacles. Fish are able to sense movement in the water around their gills, but they need sight to ...

El Castillo - El Castillo, Nicaragua (hospedaje aurora castillo, hospedajes en samuc champey) [02:13]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow video of a travel blog to El Castillo, Nicaragua by TravelPod blogger Javierferrin. See this TripWow and more at tripwow.tripadvisor.com El Castillo "English at the bottom Viaje por la noche de 11 horas en un barco tan lleno como los chicken buses de Guatemala, para llegar a San Carlos y de ahí tres horitas mas en otra lancha para el Castillo a través del río San Juan, al principio no había tickets para el barco pero ya se sabe que antes se hunde el barco que la compañía deje de ingresar dinero, en el viaje el grupo de viajeros crece y somos un total de 10 con 7 nacionalidades distintas, nuestra intención seria cruzar a Costa Rica después de navegar por 5 horas por el inhabitado río San Juan a pesar de que había contradicción de opiniones conforme a si lo podríamos hacer o no. Al final resulto que no y tuvimos que dormir en la caseta de unos militares y luego volver a hacer las 5 horas del viaje de vuelta para la frontera que utiliza todo el mundo en Los Pinos, pero el viaje por el río es verdaderamente bonito (no para hacerlo dos días seguidos durante 10horas pero muy bonito). También hicimos un trekkiing por medio de la reserva Indio Maíz. Bicho espero que disfrutes las fotos al tiempo que te hechas alguna lagrimita. Travel by night in a bus as full as the chicken buses in Guatemala, and after that another three hours by boat to El Castillo through the river San Juan, at the beginning the boat was sold out, but in Latin America is more probable ...

See this TripWow and more at tripwow.tripadvisor.com Miraflor, een gesteund project "Om niet al de traditionele stukken aan te doen besloten we om een stukje natuur op te zoeken waar planten werden geteeld op een ecologische wijze, hier konden we bij de lokale bevolking slapen en hun verhaal horen, een groot deel van de mannen gingen via mexico naar de verenigde staten werken in de bouw, de ene dag werkm de andere dag geen, als er werk was dan moesten ze blijven werken in weer en wind om dan in erbarmelijke omstandigheden te leven en dan toch een beetje geld te kunnen opsturen, sommigen waren al 2 jaar weg en slaagden er dus niet in van terug te komen bij hun familie. De vrouwen trachten dan ook een kleine business op te zetten om het leven nog iets draaglijker te maken. We mogen verdekke heel tevreden zijn dat we in belgië geboren zijn met al zijn luxe en dan slagen we er nog in van zoveel stress te hebben en problemen te zoeken, die mensen hebben pas problemen, alleen gelukkig kennen ze de weelde niet en blijft het toch iet of wat draaglijk. Eigenlijk waren we er sinds een paar dagen mee gestart om elke dag iets goeds te doen en of elke dag een centje te geven aan minder bedeelden, zo hebben we eens een vrachtwagen die geladen was met stenen en omgevallen was met man en macht rechtgezet waarna die mannen daar terug elke steen, steen per steen oplegden, tja een heftruck dat ...

Chilling , eating and diving Caribbean-style - Boca Sabalos, Nicaragua (eating in the caribbean) [00:52]

I then got the "ferry" to Little Corn, no more than an overcrowded open top boat. It was v windy ...& when the local girls started to scream as we crashed off the gigantic waves, I knew we were in for a rough ride! We were given a big plastic sheet to hold over our collective heads, presumably to stop us seeing what we were about to hit, or maybe to stop us drowning as we opened our mouths to scream, it was like a rollercoaster for the next hour, a bit too long for comfort! Anyway, after we had wobbled onto dry land, I found someone who had met Andy & located him in a hammock. We immediately had a long chat, coming to the same conclusion that we should call it a day. It was amicable & we decided to stay on the island together for our b'days, enjoying the Caribbean hospitality of Elsie & Grace, who owned the simple wooden beach shacks where we stayed just 15secs from the azul sea. Intermittent electricity & no running water, but torches & buckets do just fine for me! The food was great, loads of garlic lobster & fish. I celebrated my b'day with an afternoon of diving, getting close up ...
