Since I decided to skip Costa Rica, I headed to the next central american country... Nicaragua. I did not have any idea of what to find there, I mean for me Nicaragua is only famous for having been "managed" by the USA and the CIA.

So finally here I was... on a boat going to the San Blas Islands in Panama. This was a 5 days trip: 2 days in the ocean and then 3 days in the islands. And now that it's finished I can tell you I was not feeling so safe about this trip but I decided to do it.

Once a boat had been found for San Blas and Panama, I had a few days to spend... and since I had the feeling to have seen everything worth seeing in Cartagena I headed for another town nearby called Santa Marta. It is mainly famous as a vacation spot for Colombian people. On my side I did not exactly go to Santa Marta but to a village nearby called Taganga, famous around backpackers.

La Paz (20/22-May)

After Sucre, I headed to the capital city of Bolivia, La Paz. This city is again located very high in the mountains, from 3600m to 3900m... but surprisingly there are even higher mountains around... probably something like 5000m at least.

Salta (05/07-May)

After another night in the bus, I ended up in the city of Salta, main city of northern Argentina. Technically there's not so much do do there as this is mainly a stage to northern Argentina like Jujuy or on my side to Chile.

Bariloche (26/29-Apr)

After 36 hours of bus I arrived in... Switzerland :P. Just kidding but Bariloche is considered to be the Switzerland of Argentina: mountains, lakes, chocolates, ice creams, german names, wooden buildings in the countryside... mostly because it was founded by immigrants from Switzerland.
