We headed West to check out the beach town of San Juan del Sur which is very close to the Costa Rican border.
Sadly though, we didn't get much chance to enjoy the place. Both of us came down with very tough colds that knocked us flat on our backs. I've also ended up with a fairly dire bacterial infection of the tummy and so am on another round of antibiotics to get sorted. Needless to say, the four days that we spent in this little beach town were spent either reading, sleeping or looking at the four walls of our room (surrounded by piles of used kleenex's and various cold medicines).
One interesting thing about this place is that while we were there, it was experiencing an annual burst of winds that made the place feel like it was on the verge of a hurricane. Folks were losing their roofs, stop signs were sent flying down the street, you name it! At least it gave us something to gaze at from our hostel...
The good news is that we were up for a least a little stroll around on our last day and so got a couple of pics.
We're feeling much better now and have ventured into Costa Rica. Missing everyone and will blog again soon!
