You can take the man out of Nicaragua…

I recently returned to the states for a couple of weeks. While it was nice to indulge in sloppy Texas BBQ, hot water and driving a car, I still found myself cooking with coconut oil, speaking with creole grammar and when it came time for my overnight layovers in the Miami airport, I came prepared:

I love aerial photos even if it isn’t the Caribbean coast. This is Mercado Oriental in Managua (I think). It’s hi-res so feel free to click and zoom in.

    Hi Casey,

    I hear you … the transitions back and forth are always rough. I just came across your website – it looks great.

    I’m trying to figure out how we’ve never met. I spent most of 1998-2008 in Caribbean Nicaragua (Bluefields mostly, lots of trips and work in Pearl Lagoon, Wawachang, Orinoco etc.) and contributed to a lot of the guide books around that time. I worked mostly with FADCANIC, URACCAN & BICU. When did you arrive …?

    Check out my website sometime – you’ll see the Caribbean Nicaragua inspiration –

    Good luck and stay in touch,

      Hi Phoebe,
      We just missed each other…I arrived in Sept. 2008. I would love to chat more about your experiences down here; feel free to drop me a line at anytime you get to feeling nostalgic!

      And a hammock hardly weighs a thing! Essential travel gear in my opinion.
