After more than two weeks of rest, I have returned; difficult to want in a post to tell the best of a trip of rest with the family. Here I summarize the best:
Always holidays cause a sense of guilt because it is difficult to say no to the food that friends offer at this time and ironic to go to an exotic place without trying local foods.
In the Central American Pacific, you eat a lot at Christmas:
- torrejas, soft bread soaked in cream of beaten egg and sweet of boiling sugar cane.
- Nacatamales, meat and vegetables in a paste of corn, wrapped in banana leaves, cooked in boiling water.
- Pozol, corn drink with milk and cinnamon.
Here is a sample of the seafood soup, bring a lobster, three crabs, half smooth fish, shrimp, oysters, green bananas ... all in a soup of $ 9.00
This is what I could not change for any trip, seeing these running on the beach, pushing to go further, shouting, singing ... In their innocence they had a great time, ignoring any threat of world crisis.
In the photo, when they were looking for shells while the tide is low. Herons are seen in the back eating snails within a mantle protected by an artificial barrier formed by coral rocks; further down, the coasts of the Gulf of Fonseca shared by Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua.
Among the different places I went, I was struck by the trip to Isla El Tigre, a volcano that stopped talking for 10,000 years ago.
According to what the tour guide told us, this volcano instead of erupting last time, exploded reducing its height and overflowing to one side; In this area you can see the projection that this had, it is said that it would be 4,500 meters above sea level, which would make it the highest in Central America. Currently the highest are Tajumulco in Guatemala (4,420 (masl) and Irazu in Costa Rica (3,432 masl). In the end the tour is highly educational, the boy who took us on the motorcycle taxi turned out to have a degree in tourism graduated from a University of The Savior.
On the island you can see an old cave known as "The Sirens", there are three rocks with engraved lines that are supposed to contain a treasure map of the pirate Drake, the people are very amble and I ... I recommend it!!!
According to statistics, this blog received in the last days 139 visits of people who must live very close to this place ... I just hope that it does not seem a novelty what I just mentioned.
By nature I tend to be "wedge" or as my friends tell me "lora meat", so I don't like to spend a lot on money that you don't always have to spare. Being with family and friends is economical, taking advantage of the fact that fuel is very low, see how economical it is to do this type of adventure; Unforgettable trips for what the boys will remember me and of which I will not regret if one day I emigrate again for a long time.
Go and return from the nearest city:
- Fuel spent on the coast: $ 7.00
- Boat payment to the island: $ 6.00
- Lunch for 4 people: $ 26.00
- Pool usage: $ 5.50
- Travel around the island in mototaxi: $ 10.00
- Souvenirs and extra treats: $ 8.00
Total: $ 62.50
By dividing it by four, it is $ 15.63 for each ... less than my monthly Internet connection fee.
By the way ... are they there?
What if in a line they mention something of what they did.
