If you’ve heard of San Juan Del Sur before, I bet you also heard that it’s a surf town. If you haven’t, well I’m telling you: San Juan is an ultimate surf town! You’ll see people walking with their boards all around town; they’re hard to miss. The sad thing though is that you can’t surf in San Juan itself. The bay doesn’t have any waves (most of the time), so you need to go to nearby beaches to catch some. If we could have surfed in town, Chris and I would probably have bought a couple of board and …

The first time I stepped on Central American ground, I have to admit I had a bit of a cultural shock. It’s probably nothing compared to someone landing in India, but landing in Costa Rica was a bit overwhelming. After living in Central America for more than six months, I feel like I’ve gotten used to a lot of things I never thought I would have to! Some are great, other not so much.

Since we arrived in San Juan Del Sur two months ago, Chris and I have been way too focused on work.

After our incredible experience in Mexico going to Las Marietas Island, we were just so happy to learn …

Being a digital nomad is all about freedom. You have the freedom to choose where you want to work and when you want to work. You get to choose what you do after you’re done working too: if you prefer to watch TV in bed or explore a deserted island. That’s all up to you. A lot of people out there are going to tell you how you should live your life, whether you’re a digital nomad or not, and you shouldn’t listen to them.

When Chris and I decided to live in San Juan Del Sur for the winter, we didn’t know we’d just arrive close to one of the biggest turtle spot of Nicaragua. It’s only a days after arriving that we saw groups of people leaving for turtle tours. We didn’t ask anybody about it for a while until I decided that was something we should do! That’s when we realized that if we wanted to see any turtles, we had to get our butt in gear! The Olive Ridley turtle season starts in July and ends in January. Because we were mid-December …
