Location: Leon, Nicaragua

MapMelting Streets and Cool Courtyards

Leon is a city of secret courtyards, perhaps leftover from the days when Leon was the centre of Sardinista opposition in Nicaragua. I´m learning to live like the Nicaraguans: siesta by day and venture out at about 5pm when it is slightly cooler. The lava of nearby volcanos seems to flow under Leonese streets.

I´m hoping to climb Cerro Negro Volcano this week with an organisation that supports local homeless children. Highly recommended hostel in Leon Laguna de Apoyo near Granada Amazing place to stay on Omatepe Island
