Do Not Buy my New Gringo in Granada BOOK!:

May 17th, 2016

Everything in the book can be found right here on this website and with pictures and the occasional video to boot. In a fit of missing Nicaragua I decided to compile all of my wordier posts from GiG into a short book for Amazon Kindle. If, for some reason, you want to waste $2.99 that you […]

Visiting San Juan del Sur:

August 8th, 2015

Despite living in Nicaragua for 6 months last year, we never made it to San Juan del Sur. But we are here now! Yesterday was our first day. We had beers and good food at Resturante Vivian then hit the beach where the kid’s mind was blown, since he’d never seen the ocean before, even […]

Tip Top Chicken: Nicaragua’s Delicious Version of Chic-fil-A:

August 5th, 2015

Tip Top Chicken is a prevalent fast food chain in Nicaragua that sells chicken in various culinary forms. By various I mean grilled or fried. It is essentially, their version of a Chic-fil-A although it tastes nothing like Chic-fil-A. Really, I guess, the only resemblance is that they sell chicken. Okay, so my title to […]

The Monkey Hut at Laguna de Apoyo:

August 2nd, 2015

We spent a couple of hours out at The Monkey Hut on Lake Apoyo in the Laguna de Apoyo Nature Reserve. The lake itself is 200 meters deep. That’s roughly 650 FEET DEEP. Yes, terrifying. Luckily the surrounding beach successfully distracts from the mind numbing fear of gigantic prehistoric creatures lurking 650 feet beneath the […]

El Camello Revisited:

July 31st, 2015

I’m not really much of a “food blogger” since I’m not a pretentious snot, but I figured I should post these images of the delicious dishes we had at El Camello today. I’ve written about El Camello previously, but didn’t include food pics…so here they are! We’ll start with an appetizer of pita and hummus: […]

Hotel el Internacional:

July 31st, 2015

This is the first time we’ve stayed at a hotel in Granada. Since we were in it for the long haul last time we were here, we always stayed in rented houses. There are many hotels in Granada, of course, ranging from top notch luxury right on the main drag La Calzada, to more quint […]

Choco Spa! Mansion de Chocolate Hotel y Spa:

July 30th, 2015

Our kid is attracted to water like a homesick fish. Even before we got on the plane to come back to Nicaragua he could not stop talking about going swimming in the pool. Why he fixated so much on something that we have plenty of back in the states I’m not sure, other than his […]

Emails to a Buddy:

June 27th, 2015

A friend of mine just booked a trip to Granada and he emailed with a few questions about the place. It struck me after a few responses I sent that the information therein might actually be useful to other people, so I’m pasting my email responses below. I’ve cut out some conversational nonsense that’s not […]

Costa Rica: Day 2 – Museo de los Ninos:

January 20th, 2014

Today we went to the Museo de los Ninos (Children’s Museum) in Costa Rica. This is a damn cool museum for kids and it is HUGE. It is built in the abandoned shell of the former Central Prison originally constructed in 1906. It contains several levels of interactive scientific awesomeness for kids to manhandle, thereby […]

Costa Rica: Day 1:

January 18th, 2014

We booked a long weekend in San Jose, Costa Rica to renew our tourist visas. For those not in the loop, you have to leave the country for 72-ish hours every 90 days to renew your tourist visa if you are not a resident. We’re doing that in Costa Rica. We got into the airport […]
