Not really my bag, rainforest, bugs and snakes, but wonderful people and gracious hospitality will always be remembered. The scenery, in between some of the heaviest torrential downpours I've ever seen, is beautiful, with many forest covered volcanoes and views north to Lake Nicaragua. The vegetation is fascinating, with birdlife, brightly coloured butterflies and strange insects in abundance.
One little expedition was on horseback to the famous Rio Celeste, a fine waterfall into a bright blue pool, a few miles from the eco lodge at Heliconias, just above the village of Bijagua.
