Tour of Rosario Islands & Playa Blanca in Cartagena, Colombia with "Official" Tour Guides = Most Horrendous Tour I've Been On
Horrendous has to be the only word for this tour. I have seen reviews of other tour companies that might not be as terrible, but this review is specifically for the official tour company of Cartagena. DO NOT GO WITH THEM!
Yep, we hiked some more volcanoes. Central America is just full of them! I actually never knew that until we came here. We did a 2 day trek with Quetzaltrekkers León. You can see more information on our specific trek here, but the summary is: We hiked up Volcán Cerro Negro and volcano boarded down (more on that later), and then we hiked through the Las Pilas – El Hoyo volcanic complex. We camped near a giant crater, and then the next day continued on to Volcán Asososca and swam in a crater lake before hiking through the jungle to get down.
León is a cute little colonial town in Nicaragua. It's the second oldest city in Nicaragua as well as the second largest city in Nicaragua.
Utila is an island off the coast of Honduras that a lot of tourists visit to learn to scuba dive. The other popular island in the same area is Roatán. We went to Utila to get our advanced scuba certifications because it was cheaper than what we found in Roatán. That being said, I heard from people while we were in Utila that Roatán has better snorkling / scuba diving because there are more fish and a more colorful reef.
Semuc Champey is so beautiful. It's a hell of an adventure to get there, but it really is gorgeous. If you go, I'd be sure to do the caves and the tubing as well if you have time just to make the trip all the way out there worth it.
Let me start with explaining what I mean by reusable menstrual products (which I’ll simply call reusables). No, you do not use tampons more than once (ew). There are different types of reusables that you can use with your disposable tampons and pads (which I’ll simply call disposables) or you can use to replace them altogether. There are 3 major categories of reusables: 1) menstrual cups that replace tampons; 2) cloth pads that replace disposable pads; and 3) period panties that you can use to replace everything or use together with other products.
