SAN JUAN DEL SUR, NICARAGUA
In February 2014 I had the opportunity to go to Nicaragua! It was such an amazing experience, and I felt like we really got to experience some of the culture there, instead of staying in a big americanized resort.
We stayed next to a hostel at Playa Maderas, where we spent a lot of our time meeting people from around the world, surfing and relaxing. Other adventures we did were sailing, fishing on the coast (& whale spotting), walking the streets in the city, & eating amazing Central American food. If you are wanting to go to Central America, I would totally recommend Nicaragua. It is beautiful, pretty safe and quite affordable compared to other countries.
