Travel Day

Here we sit at the La Costena departure lounge at the Augusto C Sandino Airport just outside of Managua, Nicaragua, Central America, awaiting our flight to Big Corn Island.  

La Costena departure lounge

Yesterday was a rise at 5 am…head to airport day  Ottawa to Toronto flight was delayed by about 30 minutes due to fog. Arrived in Toronto and then had to endure the always tedious United States Customs and Immigration process.  Although we were only laying over in Houston, Texas it still has to be done.  

Toronto airport

Our Toronto to Houston flight was also delayed by about 30 minutes.  This due to snow conditions in Chicago.  3:40 pm arrival in Houston with a couple of hours to relax before 3rd flight of the day. See that glass of wine????  28 US dollars….I sipped it slowly!

Houston Airport

Crazy tiny seats on the United Airline Houston to Managua plane.  3 hours and 15 minutes later and we were in Nicaragua.  Very tired.  The customs and immigration process took an entire hour.  Luckily we had selected the closest hotel to the airport.  Literally across the street.  This morning we walked over to get our next plane.

We stayed at Best Western La Mercedes. Perfect for over nighting when arriving late.  SUPER clean, well priced with tasty breakfast included.  The bed was so comfie! 

So, now we wait for our flight to the magical Corn Islands.  Posts may be sparse as the connectivty isnt assured on the Corn Islands.

Hasta luego!!
