The main reason Chris and I wanted to go to León was to go volcano boarding. Other than that, we didn’t’ have much plans and expectations. We knew León was a pretty big city with a very popular cathedral, but we didn’t expect to actually fall in love with the city like that! León is a university city with batidos (smoothies) restaurants at every corner and the cheapest comedors I’ve been to. It has a pretty young crowd and a lot of food to try. But that’s not it: the city center itself is beautiful, with tons of churches and colonial …

Who wouldn’t love to live in a small surfer town by the beach? Isn’t that the dream? When Chris and I decided we wanted to escape the Canadian winter, we knew we’d be back in Central America. We loved it here last year and were ready to explore a new part of it. Originally, we had planned to stay in Costa Rica, in Tamarindo or Playa Coco, but we weren’t able to find a place to stay in either of those towns. But we had a backup plan: San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. If we weren’t able to find anything …
