Border #6: Nicaragua to Costa Rica via Peñas Blancas

Border #6: Nicaragua to Costa Rica via Peñas Blancas

With almost 3 weeks since our last border crossing, we forgot how tiring and time consuming these days can be, especially in the Central American heat. We didn't arrive until 10:30am which means we hit lunch time right as we were finishing our final steps. This made for a 3 hour crossing that should have taken less than 2. Start early, and hope for rain to cool things down ;)

We did the expensive Nicaraguan tour during our honeymoon last year but here you'll find the more budget-conscious, off-the-beaten-path, surfer-friendly version of our two part, Nicaraguan Saga.

OH THE DREAD. Which we know is a terrible way to start a day like this… But two border crossings in one day? That's rough. And while it was better than we expected, it was definitely the longest and craziest day we've had so far.
