We really enjoyed exploring Nicaragua and recommend it to backpackers. It’s very easy to navigate and you can see everything from colonial cities, to volcanoes, to lakes, to great beaches all within a few hours. Travel is affordable and the people are welcoming.
Since my first glorious toston in Nicaragua, I made it my goal to learn how to make this amazing side dish. Tostones, also know as patacones, are thick, fried plantain cakes and are usually served as a side dish.
Since Andrea and I have started this journey wandering through Latin America, we’ve gotten used to making new friends on the road. In Nicaragua, we were lucky enough to spend time with some old friends.
Beets are one of my favorite foods. Not only are they deliciously rich in vitamin C, vitamin B, fiber, and potassium, but they also add life to one’s plate with their bright colors.
