The TripThere were two stops. Taxi to Huembes, Managua; bus to Rivas; second bus to San Juan del Sur
(The map to the left shows where in Nicaragua, and the map to the right shows the trip).
We left the house around 1:00pm and finally arrived to San Juan around 6:00pm.
San Juan del Sur
We stayed the night in a hotel across the street from our friends' place. They had stayed the whole week, but we joined them for the rest of the weekend.
We went to Playa Maderas the next day. It's a beach where a lot of tourists surf, so the waves were too strong to swim. But they had beds on the beach to relax on, so I took full advantage of that opportunity.
We returned to Managua about 9pm Sunday night: 8 people in one camioneta (pickup truck) for the two hour drive (we weren't the only ones catching a ride back to Managua haha).
The week was amazing. I am very lucky to have experienced it with such great people.
