Hasta la Isla

It’s been a couple of long, exhausting months in the field, and I’m ready for a break. Fortunately, the government of Costa Rica has given me a good excuse to take a vacation: my visa expires on Thursday. As a U.S. citizen, I get an automatic 90 day tourist visa every time I come into the country. I just have to spend 72 hours outside the country and voila, another 90 days when I come back. Renewing my visa is as easy as spending three days at the beach—provided that the beach in question is not in Costa Rica. And so, dear readers, I am bound for the Isla de Ometepe in Lago Nicaragua for a few days of sun, sand, and absolutely no schedule. A heartfelt thanks to Oscar Arías and the Departamento de Inmigración.
