Feb 18: In transit
After the bonfire I couldn't make it to the 6.30am panga to Big Corn as planned; I'll explore it next time around. The next panga is at 1.30pm, which ended up arriving at 2.40pm with people panicking because the flight from Big Corn is at 3.40. Someone paid $100 for a private boat to basically arrive at the airport 5 min before us and discover that the plane was late anyway! The flight was fun because it was a 12 people plane and we were sitting right behind the pilots: a young nica woman was driving, good for her!
Back in Managua we jump in a cub to UCA bus station and then on a minivan to Leon for 40 c and in 1.5 hr we arrive in a cute alive colonial town full of young people both tourists and locals. It's 9pm at this point and there are no rooms available in any decent hostel so we end up staying at Hotelito Casa Vieja in the cheapest and ugliest room I've never been in: 120 cordoba/$5 with shared bath. Even the hammock at El Zopilote was more expensive $3 each. Then we almost couldn't have dinner because all the kitchens close at 9.30pm, even on a sat night, bizarre. Only Mediterraneo was open but it wasn't that good and vegetarian options were very limited.
