We spent over two months in Guatemala most of that time was spent in Antigua where we were taking spanish classes and I was catching up with good ol’ buddy. When we entered Guatemala we were given a 90 day visa for four countries called the CA-4, which includes Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua. We had to do some trimming and quick moving to get to Costa Rica in three weeks. I had a list of to do’s that I wanted to check out in Nicaragua and two weeks was barely enough time. The plan was to spend about four nights on some beaches in El Salvador and drive through Honduras in one day in order to get to Nicaragua in five days.
When looking at the map and our route we had to stay on the Pacific side in order to make this timeline. After a little bit of research it looked like all of the cool places and things to do in Honduras were all on the Carribbean side. Unfortunalely we spent only four hours in Honduras and stopping once for gas. Most of our time in Honduras was spent driving to and through the two borders or waiting in lines.
We arrived in Leon, Nicaragua after a nine hour drive from El Cuco, El Salvador driving through Honduras while crossing two borders and three countries in one day. Here in Leon, Nicaragua we found one of the hottest and most humid places on Earth. Let’s find a parking spot and a very cold drink, like one that has ice in it!
