If you're travelling through Central America, arriving from Honduras through Las Manos, you can stay a few days in
to get the feel of the north. Drop in to
for a day or two to appreciate the capital's chaos if nothing else before spending a few days in
. From here you've got several options. Backtrack a bit for a few days in the isolated
Corn Islands
, or head round the southwest side of
Lake Nicaragua
Isla Ometepe
San Juan del Sur
on the Pacific coast is worth a stop before heading to Costa Rica. There are two options: straight down through
Peñas Blancas
to visit the Nicoya Peninsula, or through
San Carlos
, which is a good base for visiting the Caños Negro Wildlife Reserve, Fortuna and Volcán Arenal.
