We finally left Ometepe, setting off to rendezvous with Liz and Steve in San Juan Del Sur. They arrived a day before us and had found us a sweet cabin on the beach about 20 minutes north of SJDS on Beach Marsella. The beach was stunning and incredibly empty – we kept joking we had the whole place to ourselves! We spent our days relaxing over leisurely breakfasts, exploring the nearby beaches, and enjoying the views in every direction. Liz and I even took a beach-side yoga class one morning that left me feeling more tranquillo than I have in weeks!
Here are some photos of the hike we did to a deserted beach that we had to ourselves:
And here are photos from a beach further north, Maderas beach:
We left Beach Marsella to come see baby turtles hatch with a woman we met named Paula in San Juan Del Sur. Embarrassingly and hilariously Paula ditched us so we ended up in SJDS with no baby turtles but the passion fruit (my new obsession) smoothies made it worth our early return.
We are all headed back to Granada together later today to spend more time in the city that has captured Eric and my hearts.
