Cordial Invite? Friends and Family, Please Visit El Porton Verde and Experience Nicaragua!
To my friends and family: I am officially inviting you to come and visit Nicaragua this year. Maybe Nicaragua isn’t for…
What’s this all about anyway?
Partial list of what’s on offer:
- surfing at all levels and any number of breaks, beginner to expert, soft beach break to tow-in outer reefs (and everything in-between)
- yoga, likewise from beginner to teacher trainings
- low-budget or full-on luxury resorts: lots of good options based on your pocketbook and interests
- beach house rentals (Casa Ayers and Casa Truda) with staff that take really good care of you
- real interactions and unique experiences
- nature in all its glory: volcanoes, lakes, mountains, Caribbean and Pacific beaches and islands
- etc. etc. (link to 10 destinations I like)
Give me an idea, what’s a “typical” Nicaraguan vacation include?
You will fly into Managua International Airport where as soon as you get out of customs, heading towards the area of the rental cars, you will see my smiling face! A lot of flight arrive sort of late at night, so you and your travel companions can stay with us at the farm that first night.
When you wake up, you’ll see a wonderful view, enjoy a tasty farm-fresh breakfast, with ingredients from the farm, and we’ll plan out that first day. There are lots of things to do in the local area, colonial towns, big lakes, crater lakes, volcanoes, waterfalls, beaches, etc., so you can easily spend a couple of days partaking in that and getting your feet wet so to speak.
Then we can figure out what your particular interests are and make sure those fantastic travel experiences happen for you. Here are some possibilities:
- learn to surf
- go fishing; deep sea, lakes or rivers, Mahi-Mahi to Snook to Tarpon (and more!)
- go to a yoga resort
- volunteer to do something productive
- hang out on a Pacific beach
- hang out on a Caribbean beach
- dive; scuba or snorkel coral reefs
- enjoy a luxury spa vacation
- party your brains out in San Juan del Sur
- learn all about the process of growing and processing organic coffee
- hike mountains and explore canyons
- learn about Nicaragua’s history and culture
- go to a nature reserve as dense and biodiverse as anything in the deepest Amazon forest
- learn about Colonial architecture
- learn about the 1979 Sandinista Revolution
- visit haunted forts
- go birdwatching
- night hike bat caves
- eat incredibly delicious and cheap street food
- volcano board down a “new” volcano only a few hundred years old
- etc. etc.
And ideally you will plan to have the time to do a number of the above listed items or we can discover even more, this is only a partial listing!
