From Potosi, Nicaragua to La Union, El Salvador
Stacked over each other, we traveled to Potosi, a small village lying at the feed of the impressive volcano Cosigüina. A relatively easy hike of 3,5 hours rewards visitors with stunning views not just of the volcanic lake, but also of the Golf de Fonseca and the neighboring countries El Salvador and Honduras.
Our host advised us to just head to the border and wait there around 10 am. So, we did what we were told. The next morning we headed to the border. Unlike other Central and South American borders, the immigration office is nestled in a tranquil and idyllic location close to the sea.
We were the only people who seemed to be leaving or coming in. After getting our immigration papers, we waited by the sea.
We didn’t mind the wait. It was an excellent opportunity to dip into the ocean for the first time during this journey.
