Probably the best excursion of the trip - we went by ferry to Ometepe Island and visited a museum/hotel/ranch/farm, then on to another hotel on the lake for yet another great lunch. We had another excellent guide, who knew everything about his country :)

San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua: is now a “suffer haven”. The history of this place was unknown to us and a great surprise as to the importance it had for the California Gold Rush. We did not take a tour here and just went into town (small village) to see the area. We would not recommend wandering about without a guide.

They said this was a newer port just trying to get established so it was okay. They definitely have room to develop. Dirty, poverty more exposed. I felt safe while on our tour.

Ship didn’t stop there because of violence and unrest. Not a safe and stable country. Avoid if you want to cruise further in your life. Typical banana republic.
