This photo is a 'blast from the past' for me. I snapped it while backpacking through Nicaragua almost exactly five years ago today. And even now thinking back I still feel breathless by the sheer beauty and 'quiet' of this place...
Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua - 2009
If you want to experience nature without disturbance Nicaragua is your country. For a fraction of the price we saw so much more in Nicaragua than we did in neighbouring Costa Rica, which is overrun by noisy, wealthy tourists.
Can you imagine sky so blue, and as far as the eye can see... and only sharing it with three other people?
No doubt eco-tourism will boom in Nicaragua soon so get in quick.
