Settling In The Most Romantic City In The Americas

I felt like a schoolgirl playing hooky. We awoke early Friday morning, dressed, ate, and then, instead of heading to the office, we took off for the airport to catch a flight to Managua. Just Lief and me. No kids. No checked luggage. Not even our laptops. We had planned this quick escape weekend to Nicaragua spur of the moment, a romantic weekend for two, in one of our favorite countries, a place where we spent a lot of time early on in our marriage but hadn’t returned together in years.Granada,_Nicaragua_2

Almost immediately upon arrival, it all came back, all the reasons I like this country as much as I do. Nicaragua is naturally and dramatically beautiful, but lots of places are beautiful. What sets Nicaragua apart is its heart. You get the feeling, spending time here, that this country is always trying really hard to pick itself up and carry on…to make things better.

Thanks for the article Kathleen. I appreciate your perspective on coming back to Nicaragua after you and Lief were here earlier in the 20-ought years. I knew you when you were at Rancho Santana. As someone who receives visitors here frequently, I can say lots of folks get the bug to move to Nicaragua and many are actually doing it. The lifestyle here is not for everybody, but for some it is great! Cheers, Mike @ Farmstay El Porton Verde, Managua
