Where I stayed
Don Wilfredos Hostel
Nils was born in Nicaragua but lives in Costa Rica and he was on his 1 week vacation with his nephew who lives in Nicaragua. Nils is soo funny! He is around 40 years old, is an English/Spanish teacher and talks with such a heavy accent so I am laughing the entire time!!! Literally… whole time with a smile on my face! He taught me soo many new words and we talked in Spanish the entire time!...he knew exactly how to bargain the prices really really low with all the taxi drivers and hostels and such. So what a blessing, we took a taxi to SAN JUAN DEL SUR, Nicaragua and experienced such beauty. We got a hostel for 5$ a night right across the street from the beach. I was not looking forward to sleeping in the hostel because I highly dislike hostels, this is the reason why I bring my own sheets when I have to sleep in a hostel and bring long stretch pants, socks and a long light shit because I just wrap myself up like a hotdog so if there are bugs I don’t get bit. But thank God here, it was very clean and we all had our own bathroom! SO, for the rest of the evening we played in the waves, layed on the beach and played soccer on the beach with locals. We saw such a beautiful sunset that pretty much took my breath away. We ate dinner at such a delicious local 'Comodor’ which is another name for ‘Soda’ in Costa Rica, meaning they just serve up typical plates
The next day we went to Playa Madera, a local beach about 10 min away from San Juan Del Sur. We surfed all day with a local surfer named Juan Carlos. That night we went out to IGUANAS, a local bar/restaurant there in San Juan Del Sur and had such an amazing time!!!! I met so many people from all over Europe and Nicaragua. Plus Samer, a 23 year old guy from Boboyo, Nicaragau who mind was filled with nothing but catching the best waves and weed. Haha…but he was a nice guy and we danced the night away at Iguanas and the Jungle Room DiscoTech!
