Days 98-103. After 2 days in Santa Marta (what a lively city!) I headed to Taganga, where I finally got my open water 🧜🏽‍♀️. Heads up to my mum as it was her pre-bday present 😄. It was great breathing under the water, discovering such amazing sea-life. I saw different types of fishes, corals, a beautiful sunken boat and the cutest turtle (not that easy to spot them here). The experience with #oceanoscuba was just great, so I can just recommend them. I was also very lucky with the accommodation #lamasiahostal as I was almost alone at the hostel and it felt like being at home for a week 🙂. The restaurant next to the hostel, owned by two Venezuelan brothers was perfect for early dinners after a full day of diving. Now already thinking about where I’m gonna get my advanced certificate 🌟🧜🏽‍♀️🌟

Days 95-97. Isla Grande!! What a great recommendation I got from my Basques friends 😍 I stayed at playa El Paraiso and it was just awesome to swim in this clear blue water. The food, the weather and, again, the people made it just perfect. Could have stayed there for ages.. but life can be hard sometimes 😅

Days 92-94. Cartagena. I danced, danced, danced and ate the most delicious mango on the streets of this beautiful city. Had the best dinner at #elbistro and enjoyed like a baby the dancing at #crazysalsa. I also took the opportunity to have a proper pampering day at #monicacruzpeluqueria - guys you were awesome! So I’m happy to say I am brunette again (no more carrot cake 😂). It was definitely nice to be back to civilization and enjoy little pleasures like having a cozy hotel room after our no-shower days at San Blas 🙈. I stayed at #hostel1811 and it was just great. Now ready again to continue the island life in Isla Grande!

Days 86-91. San Blas🏝. Paradise exists and it’s in this piece of land! What a beautiful place. You haven’t only offered me the whitest sand and most cristal water, but great learnings that I will always keep with me. The Kunas, their traditions, their villages, their way of seeing life. What an interesting indigenous community, with values any other (so called) developed community would/should envy, such as their tolerance and almost self-sufficient way of living. It will be hard to forget you, mainly after all the scratches that your beautiful corals left on my legs 🐚🐚- part and signs of that vast list of learnings I‘m taking with me 😀 Now I also know what the shakiras are, that I should’t touch beautiful purple medusas (too much beauty can be harmfull), that there aren’t different types of coconuts but different ripening stages 🤦🏽‍♀️ , that it would have been great to be Robinson Crusoe and that the albinos are, in fact, children of the moon 🌛🌛🌛

Days 82-85. Oh Panama City. My first and only capital city in Central America, you have treated me well. I’ve enjoyed your new/old duality, your streets, your architecture, your food, your style. You are proper and wild, posh and humble, great and weird at the same time. I was amazed by the canal, mainly after a walk that didn’t seem to end. I was delighted by Frank Gehry’s work at the Biomuseo (couldn’t get in, but it would have been hard to get better than from the outside). I loved the food at El mercado de mariscos and Mary’s fonda. I got to know your both sides from the rooftops, and the view from the Tántalo hotel terrace was just stunning. I also got to meet great people - specially Andres, Gus and Leo. Thank u guys it was so much fun!! Great way of biding goodbye to Panama before going to Colombia! 🔥🏙🔥

Days 79-81. I finally accepted that the weather was going to be pretty bad in the next few days.. so I just decided to find a place where I could actually enjoy it. A girl I met in CR recommended me to head to Boquete, where I could stay at at a nice hostel called Bambuda Castle. It had a indoor pool, jacuzzi and great food, we I wouldn’t really need to leave the place if I didn’t want to. The place happened to be literally a small castle that a guy built for her young Panamenian wife as a wedding present 😳, just recently converted into a hostel. I was lucky to arrive when the #festivaldelasfloresyelcafe started and I could enjoy great coffee and amazing strawberries with natilla 🤤 The best part though was getting to see all the dancing&music shows they had, discovering the traditional music, dances and stunning outfits!! I couldn‘t have chosen a better plan for a raining weekend. Thanks Boquete!! :)

Day 78. Bocas del toro. Again, the rain didn’t allow me to do much.. But I had the opportunity to visit ‘la playa de las estrellas’ and see a starfish for the first time!! 🧜🏼‍♀️⭐️ We went for dinner at #gigisrestaurante and had the best seafood soup ever. Pretty similar to the Irish chowder, but  with huge octopus and calamar chunks 🐙🦑🦐🦀. Before leaving the island I enjoyed a coffee at #cafedelmar and went to #hostalcalipso to pick up my stuff and devour the amazing pancakes they prepared for breakfast 🤤 After that, time to get the boat back to Almirante, where I took a shuttle to brautiful Boquete. More about it in the next post!!

Dia 77. Almirante. Best thing of traveling without a plan, free like the wind, is to be open for surprises, last minute changes, and wonder. The heavy rains didn’t allow me to get to Bocas as planned - destiny had better plans for me. I got stuck in Almirante, where I thought I wouldn’t even be able to find a place to sleep. It was nice to hear from the taxi driver that picked me up at the boarder that there was a small hostel run by a Panamanian couple where I could probably find a room. And so I did. Natalia welcomed me and gave me the key of a cozy room with a single bed, clean towel and a small desk and chair. What else could I ask for? Well, in case that wasn’t enough, she invited me to join her family for dinner. She had cooked a nice soup she wanted to share with me. So, after going for a walk around the small town, I joined them for dinner. The soup was delicious!! But better was the company. There, apart from meeting Natalia’s sweet granddaughters, I had the opportunity to meet the great Luis Ruben Paz Mollah. What a man. What a mind. We talked, discussed, laughed, ate (lots of sweets from all around the world), drunk (amazing homemade liquor) and shared. We learned from each other, or at least I want to think it was mutual. We traveled with our stories, and our hearts and minds (coming from different geographies, generations, and cultures) met in a dinning table to go on a short trip we will never forget. Thanks Panama, Almirante and your people. You  already stole my heart.

Days 74-76. This is the best memory of puerto viejo.. and it’s blurry!! 😂😂 the heavy rains that hit the whole central america during the last week didn’t allow me to do much rather than drink wine and eat sea food (not that I can complain..). It was a pity, though, not being able to discover the nice beaches around Puerto Viejo. It was pouring rain for 3 days nonstop. But I finally had a good cup of coffee at Koki (thx God after paying 5US 😳), ate great seafood at Mopri (tried the ‘tica’ mariscada with rum reduction) and enjoyed some good reads while tasting the most amazing brownie made of peanut butter 🤤🤤🤤. Also had the chance to meet Fer again and have the most intense dancing session ever. Everything happens for a reason!!

Day 71-73. Magnificent Manuel Antonio!! As I arrived, I met Fer (a beautiful Argentinien girl I met in Tamarindo) at #hotelmanuelantonio and went straight to the beach! It was nice to catch up and swim in the beautiful beaches. To keep the tradition, we had casado for dinner and it was the very best we ever had!! The next day I went to the national park. OMG, that was beautiful! I saw monkeys, huge reptiles, raccoons, a deer and three sloths! They were the cutest thing ever, and I fell totally in love with the Manuel Antonio beach.. 😍😍 The last day I headed to Quepos and stayed at #wildmouthfrog. It was nice to finally find a hostel with computers and get some work done.. 💻📒

Day 70. Hanging bridges and longest zip-line in Latin America!! I’m afraid of heights, and this was definitely another test to overcome my fears!! Highest bridge was 34mts high, and highest zip-line 200mts!! 😳 I have to recognize at the beginning I closed my eyes, but convinced myself I had to open them to enjoy the view and see that I could do it! 💪🏼 Too much adrenaline, I’ll sleep like a baby tonight 😂 And couldn’t ask for a better way to end my day  than having dinner with a great couple from Navarra. Life is good!! 😁

Days 65-69. Tamarindo was crazy!! Not the best beaches, nor good waves (regretting taking a surf lesson sooo much!!) but great ppl there. Stayed at #hostalchocolate and #labotelladeleche. Great places both!! And, again, couldnt b happier with the ppl I met and the hostel owners, that made sure to find us a bed in overbooked Tamarindo! I ate lots of casado, but also had asian noodles and sushi for the first time in 2 months - soooo goooood 🤤. The cherry of the cake was having the possibilty to attend the #ocasofestival. Best party so far 💃🏽😍🔥! Couldn’t have asked for more from Tamarino. As they say over here #puravida!!

Days 63-65. Beautiful Ometepe. Skipped the volcano hike though. I think I’ve had enough for a while now.. We rented a motorbike and drove around the island. Really nice!! Went to ojo azul but left after 2 min. It was packed with ppl and wasnt really charming tbh. We Drove further down and ended up in la punta where we had a nice swim surrounded by nature and wildlife. Before going back home we stopped at playa santo doming and had a cold beer at the beach. So nice!! And, for dinner, always at maria hostel. DELICIOSO!!

Day 59. Definitely loving Granada!!! Here the views from #iglesiadelamerced 😍 It was great to walk around with the group of crazy girls from Mallorca I met at #oasishotel. Haven’t met many people yet from Spain traveling around, and was great to meet this beautiful crew just before heading to Popoyo beach 🌊🌊

Days 55 +++. It’s been Christmas time and I’ve been quite disconnected. Too much going on!! We spent Christmas in Leon, had a very nice dinner at #mangoshostel and went out partying with locals at #oxigene (weirdest dj session ever..). On the 25th, we had dinner at #pocoapoco and had the best bbq with the nicest ppl! Met beautiful Amelie and went to #laspeñitas for a swim, where I lost my beloved MJ sunglasses 😭. But in exchange, I got the cutest present 🌟 As we arrived in Granada I went to #lasisletas, where the boat driver picked up this gorgeous flower that smelled a lot like a gardenia and revealed it like a magician with a cape. So beautiful! To close a great day, Noel convinced me to go to the #treehouseparty. Lord.. better keep that secret 😂

Day 53-54. Day 53.. not much to be honest! We were so tired that we just chilled around Leon. Such a great city! Very lively and fun. Lots of things going on on the streets, and everyone getting ready for Christmas! Its still funny to see all these Christmas hats and plastic snow men while having 30 degrees.. Realizing that I got scammed in a cash machine killed a bit the vibe, but nothing we couldn’t fix with a few beers :) In the picture above (day 54) we went volcano boarding at el cerro verde!! It was intense.. mainly the first time, when I fell rolling down the hill.. Just got a few scratches, so nothing to worry about. It was fun!! For dinner, we went to Mangos hotel for a great Christmas dinner. Im loving it here!

Day 52. We finally made it to Leon!! It took us aaages though 😂 Nobody said I’d be easy to go from El Salvador to Nicaragua with chicken buses... But we made it! Worse bit was going through Honduras due to the current political situation. Some ppl were still trying to block the road putting stones on the way, but there weren’t many and we didn’t have to stop. It seems that since this week the situation is getting better, but we decided to skip this beautiful country for now and hopefully be able to go back soon to enjoy its landscapes, culture and people!
