Nicaragua

We're back...relaxed, refreshed, and full of vitamin D. We had such a wonderful time visiting with Kate and seeing the country. Traveling to a warm destination in the middle of winter is quite possibly the best vacation move we've made...why haven't we thought of this before?



Here are some highlights from our trip:





looking at the beautiful scenery





lounging in comfortable hammocks (with Fanta Naranja, to go)





spending time with Kate (after our hike up to the San Ramon waterfall)





enjoying the sun





kayaking in Lake Nicaragua





seeing a monkey up close in Las Isletas, Granada





going on a night tour of Volcan Masaya





zip lining on Volcan Mombacho





eating beans and rice and more beans and rice and more beans and rice...





You can see the rest of our photos (166) here.

  4. Oh - this so reminds me of Costa Rica (and I do realize they are neighbors and thus are similar!) - especially the last picture - rice and beans and platanos!!! Yummy!

  7. I am so jealous! Can you hear me crying with real tears? By the way, I love the name of your blog--I happen to have both a daughter and a step-daughter named Rebecca. When my daughter was just two, she would stomp her little foot and say "My name is NOT Becky!"

  8. It looks like a fabulous trip! I've been to Guatemala and was amazed - perhaps Nicaragua should be next!
