The Cruise Inn in San Juan, Nicaragua is a great small inn, owned by a Harley Rider from Wisconsin.  Joel, the owner, rode into town two months ago and found home.  Now he and his wife are running this boutique Inn two blocks away from the beach.  You can reach the inn by telephone, 8879-5451.  Rooms are only $15 per night for one person, $20 for a couple or $30 for two beds.  Secure parking, biker friendly. Air conditioning for $5 extra and your laundry washed, dryed and folded for $5.  You canīt beat it.  Breakfast included!

Ricardo and I decided to stay for another night or two so today we took a day trip to the beautiful colonial city of Grenada, sitting on the shores of lake Nicauraga, the largest lake in the Americas. Granada, A city of great history and some of the most beautiful colonial buildings in Central America.  While there we feasted on fresh fish, cooked whole with rice and fried plantains.  The reason I love to ride with Ricardo is that we have similar appetites.

Granada, less than 110 kms from San Jual Del Sur.  Past rolling hills filled with cattle and banana plantations.  The roads filled with horse carriages, ox carts and even the occasional herds of beautiful cattle.

Tonight?  Maybe just lobster cerviche and a long sit on the beach.  But again.....I just saw a neat ice cream parlor.  And tomorrow?  Maybe ride south, maybe stay one more day.  We donīt have to decide tonight.
