Just when I thought I had seen the most spectacular ocean scenery ever, I took a trip to a small community on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua called Casares.
Casares is about 70 km south east of Managua or about an hour and half drive from Granada. Right on the ocean. With miles of open fields and views of volcanoes to boot. I'm not sure it gets much better than this. I can't even get it all in on one photo. And its definitely off the beaten touristy trail.
Personally, I don't like the beaten touristy trail places. I like getting out and "discovering" these stunningly beautiful places myself. Okay, so maybe I am not the first one to leave my footprints on the beach here. But I sure make everyone I am with really, really annoyed with me when I keep saying "Oh-my-gosh-this-is-soooo-incredible!". I wonder if Christopher Columbus ever got anyone annoyed with him?
