The next morning we woke up around 6am to more loud music. A large amount of people partied in the street all night through the morning. We tried to sleep for a couple more hours and then made our way out to the sunny and very warm morning streets. It was extremly hot outside! Our […]
The sun was going down and we were excited to find out what the street party of San Juan Bautistata was like at night. We got together with some friends from town to grab some pre-party drinks and talk about what kind night we should expect for the evening. After an hour of hearing stories, […]
This last weekend was an even bigger celebration than the first–by far the biggest celebration we’ve seen here in Nicaragua. It was the grand finale of the month long celebration and they went out with a BANG. The weekend started with non-stop music early Friday morning. It was a nice way to wake up with […]

Jon and Quinn go on another Nicaraguan adventure–this time to the Rodeo of Nicaragua. The Rodeos here are a bit different than the ones you see in the States. It was a pretty crazy experience and we’re thankful we got to document it to share it with you all. Enjoy mates!
