We meet some nice people on the ferry that ask to split a taxi with us to the far side of the island. We are both staying about a 30 minute drive from the ferry terminal. We tell them that we have a car and offer them a ride. Suddenly, we have new friends! Steve and Jennifer end up being from Seattle (where I'm from) and we get them to come up to our hotel for dinner. We stay at the most amazing hotel, La Omaja. It's located at the top of a hill overlooking Lake Nicaragua. They recently put in an infinity pool and I still can't describe the sunsets. They were the best of my life ... until a few days later when we were in San Juan del Sur (see photos). It's been a long day of driving and figuring out how the heck to get here. We share a few beers with the other lodge inhabitants and kick back.
