Guatemala, June 2015




GETTING THERE
Getting to La Aurora International Airport,Guatemala City (GUA) is relatively easy to do from most major airports.

Upon arrival you will have to process through Customs and Immigrations.  Information regarding travel to and from Guatemala can be found at the US Department of State, US Passports and International Travel page.

My entry and exit through GUA was uneventful.


Nicaragua - Ometepe - One Island, Two Volcanoes - Chapter 5 (July 2015)

Nicaragua - Ometepe - One Island, Two Volcanoes - Chapter 5 (July 2015)

Having flown out of Waspam to Managua, we rented a car and drove to the town of San Jorge.  This is simply an overnight stop on our way to the volcano island of Ometepe, located in Lake Nicaragua.

Catching the ferry from San Jorge to the town of Moyogalpa on Ometepe was uneventful.  The skies were overcast, wind blowing a bit, and water a little choppy.  The entire trip took around 90 minutes.

Nicaragua, Waspam - New Country, Same Journey - Chapter 4

 Almost two weeks into a three week journey, we have left Guatemala.  Landing in Managua Nicaragua in the early morning hours we had a four hour layover before our flight to Waspam (some maps spell it Waspan).

Where the hell is Waspam, Autonomous Region of the Northern Atlantic, Nicaragua?  It's a small village located on the Rio (River) Coco, which separates the countries of Honduras and Nicaragua.

Guatemala – Panajachel

Chapter 3 - July 2015


After stopping at yet another market, this one in Solola, we headed to small town of Panajachel.  This is another town on the banks of Lake Atitlan that draws expats to its temperate climate.
