Traveling the Yucatan and Central America on $20 USD a day



Less developed and cheaper than the rest of Central America, Nicaragua is is a goldmine for trampers. Whether you’re looking for volcano hiking, charming town squares or getting stuck in paradise for forever, Nicaragua will not let you down; especially when it comes to that island paradise (see: Little Corn Island).

We will be traveling Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua beginning March 5, 2015. Stay tune for new destinations, updates and amazing stories.


The tourist card issued at the Nicaraguan border is $10USD, and if coming on an international bus is generally included in the price of the ticket. DO NOT LOSE THIS CARD. There is a $1USD fee for leaving the country, and most foreigners are charged an additional $1USD fee (though this can be avoided, at the Paso Canoas border, if you just keep walking past the separate kiosk). There is also a  $32USD airport service fee if leaving by air from Managua.

NOTE: There is technically a requirement to show proof of onward travel, though we have never been asked to produce it and know of nobody else who has.
