Brendan Ross’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 12 Dec 2006

Location: Nicaragua

MapSo we arrive in Lanquin on the Thurs 16th Nov, the Hostel we were recommended to was El Retiro and i´m glad we were this place was beautiful with sweeping green fields overloking a wide river.
We stayed here for 3 nights and each day did a different activity, the first was a walk around the caves at sunset, inside the caves the temp sored as you can probably see from the sweat on my t-shirt.
The next day was spent swimming in the caves hiking up a mountain jumping off a bridge and swimming in the fresh water pools. I must that swim in the pools was one of the best i have ever had.
The nights were spent drinking, playing cards and jenga and meeting other travellers.
the Last day we were asked if we would like to try the new zip lines and ab-sailing they have set up and a very cheap price , due to nobody has tried them before, the boys were a bit worried but it was a l fine and i had a wicked time.
